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 star 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 rhyming 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.”

    There were major tears from me when I received a poem from An Ode to You for my son’s christening. It captured him perfectly, as well as reminding me how well his godmother knows him and his quirky little character. It’s on the wall on his bedroom and I’ve found at least three people reading it and having a little weep! It’s something we can keep forever as a snapshot of how he was at that age, which is priceless. (Steph, London)

    Being 8.5 months pregnant, I wanted to get something really special for my son’s second birthday. It was important to me that my son realised how important he is and how the new baby will not replace him so when I came across the poem online, I thought it was the perfect gift. The process was so easy – I provided some details about my son and then received a draft. I made a couple of minor amendments from alternatives offered and selected the colour and frame and that was it! The end result is a beautiful poem that’s very personal to my son, husband and I. It brings a tear to my eye every time in read it as it evokes such wonderful memories. The poem is hanging in his room and everyone who sees it loves it and learns a little about my little boy. Definitely worth every penny and I would really recommend this for birthdays, christening and births. I’m will definitely order one for my new arrival. (Angela, London)

    I bought an Ode to my niece in America for her first birthday and was quite nervous sending it as my sister is quite particular about gifts! She sent me email after she received it- so thought I would send it to you.
    “I received Zoey’s wonderful “Ode to You” birthday gift last week, and I finally opened it and read it a few days ago. It brought tears to my eyes! I was really touched by how well it captured her and how well you seem to know her and know about her … You mentioned details I don’t even remember telling you!” To have her sit down and write an email is a huge thing, and says a lot about how much it meant to her. Thank you so so so much!

    We gave the Star Print to our daughter to her 2nd Birthday. While she is always given lovely toys, books and clothes it was really special to be able to give her a thoughtful keepsake for her bedroom as well.

    The process is very straightforward, answering some simple questions on your child’s traits and the end product is an attractive and high quality print which due to its subtle design will work in any room. I would certainly recommend these prints and will definitely consider them as family and friend presents in future.

    I was looking for a Bespoke reading for my daughter’s Christening and came across “My Ode To You” after a fellow mum mentioned it on a Facebook Group. My son’s Christening had included a reading from “On the Night You Were Born” and I wanted something similarly special and meaningful. After talking to Melissa about what I would like included in the Ode, she sent me a tailored questionnaire, and within a week she had emailed the first draft to me. It was really lovely, with references to the poem at my son’s Christening and all the special things that we do together. She was happy to make some small changes so that it was completely how I imagined and delivered it to me beautifully wrapped at no extra cost. I read it at my daughter’s Christening this Sunday and everyone thought it was just perfect. I would highly recommend to anyone. Carol, St Albans
