Product Description

These personalised poems are the perfect gift for a Grandparent/Grandparents’ Birthday, Christmas or simply to say Thank You.

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

Each ode is made up of 28 lines, printed on high quality card, and comes in a choice of designs/colours/frames or the option of leaving the product plain or unframed.

After you purchase one of our odes, I will send you a short questionnaire to fill in about whom the Ode is dedicated to. This will include questions about special places the Grandparent/Grandchildren go together, memorable events, personality traits, likes/dislikes and anything else that you would like included.

I will then compose a witty and heartfelt Ode dedicated to the Grandparents that perfectly captures that special relationship between generations.

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 the recipient(s) laugh, cry (in a good way!) and most certainly make them feel very special indeed.

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

You can choose the design (leaf/stars/blank) and colour (grey&yellow, grey&blue, grey&pink, black)
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- “You’ve held our hands whilst we’ve been young- but you’ll hold our hearts forever.”

    I bought an Ode from my 3 sons to their grandparents for Christmas and there were tears all round (good tears!) My mum even said she would like to be cremated with it! They are such a beautiful, personal gift and a really lovely keepsake of my parents special relationship with their grandsons. It is something I know they will treasure forever. The process of ordering them was really simple and as I am based in St Albans, Melissa even hand delivered them to me, beautifully wrapped (one less job before Christmas!) I would definitely recommend My Ode To You and use them again in the future- in fact I am just in the process of ordering a Christening one now!

    When we opened our “Ode” from our Grandsons we were were lost for words. My husband and I had never seen anything like it. It included all of the little things we do with them, the places we go, our favourite books to read, and a message from our daughter that left me in tears about how she has learnt how to be a good mum from watching me. It was beautifully wrapped and came in a lovely big white frame that now takes pride of place in our kitchen for all to see. Many of our friends have already admired it and been touched by the very personal stories included. It really is a special gift and one that we will always treasure.

    I was so supprised on my 60th birthday when I opened the beautifully wrapped poem my daughter had ordered for me- she wanted to thank me for looking after my grandchildren and say happy birthday at the same time-I assumed it wasn’t an original poem but I soon realised the words and verses were extremely personal and must have taken lots of thought- which made this different from any poems I have seen on the market- my friends have been asking where they can get one for their daughters, friends and husbands- I think this gift is totally unique and touching! If you order this for a loved one they won’t be disappointed!

    We were given this ode from our Son and Daughter-in- law relating to our granddaughter. We were so touched as how it was personalised to us, it did bring tears, especially as they live overseas and we don’t get regular physical contact.

    Thank you for writing the most beautiful Ode to Grannie I could imagine. I really wanted to find a special way to tell my mother in law how fabulous she is and this was perfect/ She was moved to tears and really appreciated the thought and details that had gone into it. Just perfect- thank you again! (Clare, London)

    I ordered a poem from my four year old son to his nanny for her christmas present. Melissa made the whole process to order simple and straightforward and even wrapped it up beautifully. When my mother in law opened it the joy on her face was wonderful to see- she was so touched to read their special relationship. I would highly recommend and will be using Melissa’s service again in the near future. If you’re after a unique gift- you will not be disappointed.
    Thank you Melissa. (Julie, St Albans)

    My Mum loved her Ode and went straight home and put it on the wall. Thanks for writing it for me! It was lovely I could do something so personal for my mum from my son so thank you for helping me! (Emma, St Albans)
