Product Description

These personalised poems for children are the perfect gift for a Birthday, Christmas, Christening/Baptism or simply as a keepsake of what your little (or not so little) one has been up to.

Let me take your precious memories and turn them into something truly memorable; a gift that both of you will treasure forever.

Each ode is made up of 7 verses of 4 lines each, printed on high quality card with a beautiful hand-drawn leaf design and a personalised name banner.

After you purchase one of our odes, I will send you a simple form to fill in describing the person whom the Ode is dedicated to. This will include short questions about their birth, personality traits, favourite items, special things you do together and funny/poignant stories that you would like included.

I will then compose a witty and heartfelt ode about your little one; perfectly capturing how you feel about them and including a timeless message at the end for them to cherish as they grow older.

You will be able to review the poem before it goes to print and make any small changes.

I guarantee they are a gift that will make you laugh, cry (in a good way!) and most certainly make your loved one feel very special indeed.

Each ode is printed in colour on thick A4 260gsm matte off-white linen card.

You can choose to have the print framed (£40+p&p) ) or unframed (£30+p&p) Frames come in a choice of matt black, matt white or beech and a choice of 2 sizes Small: (21cm x 30cm x 3cm deep with a glass front and no mount.) These have a back stand or can be hung. Or Large (30cm x 40cm x 3.5cm deep with a glass front and a neutral mount. ) These are deep mount so can stand alone or be hung on a wall.

Each ode is made up of 28 ryhming lines. They are created using the answers provided by you through a simple questionnaire sent out after purchase. Please note that whilst the majority of the poem is completely bespoke, some elements (for example the formatting at the beginning and the final 6 lines) will remain similar. This is because we feel the enduring message remains the same- “Just be yourself, which is pretty much perfect to me.”

    Received our poem for my daughters first birthday and it was completely different to everything else we were given. I’m not ashamed to say it brought a tear to my eye. Having supplied a few defining words about our special little girl, the poem captured her personality and the way we feel about her perfectly. It is such a beautiful and special thing for us the parents to have right now but will be equally as special for our little one when she is older. It has pride of place just outside her bedroom and we say goodnight to it every single night as part of the bedtime routine. Everyone should have one of these! (Rob, aged 34, Richmond)

    My ode to Heidi hangs in pride of place on her bedroom wall and i think it always will. We were lucky enough to be given one of Melissa’s beautiful poems for our daughter’s first birthday and it far exceeded my expectations. Melissa managed to turn my haphazard observations about our baby into a warm, funny and truly personal keepsake. The proof of how well she captured Heidi’s first year was when I watched her grandparents, aunts and uncles each reduced to tears as they read it. What’s lovely is that even now 6months later when I read it I’m reminded of some of those precious baby moments that seem to have passed so quickly. Quite genuinely the best first birthday gift we were given. Thank you Melissa (Tanya, 33, St Albans)
