If you’re running short on gift ideas for an upcoming birthday, look like the most thoughtful person in the world (what did you do?!), or get a jump on your own Christmas wish list, you’re in luck, because Getting Personal likely has what you’re looking for.
Getting Personal backs up their name by being one of the UK’s leading online retailers of, you guessed it, personalized – and just fun in general – gifts.
There’s a plethora of amazing football-related goodies that any football fanatic would love.
For the football history buffs, or those who are just proud of their club’s storied history, you can get a personalized book detailing the history of 44 of the UK’s top clubs, all through scans of original newspaper clippings that allow you to relive all of the highs and lows hot off the presses.
For the nostalgic reading lovers, you can take a trip down memory lane to England’s 1966 World Cup glory in a World Cup history book, or if you don’t want to go back too far in time, you can relive your favorite club’s 2006/7 season.
With all of the books, you can choose to have the recipient’s name embossed in gold on the cover, which is definitely a nice touch.
Getting Personal also has plenty for the football fan who’s always dreamed of being a legend for their favorite side, and the dream can be realized with calendars and mugs personalized with your (or the person you’re giving it to) name on the back of a shirt, on a stand, in graffiti, and more.
For Manchester United, Arsenal, and Liverpool fans, there’s an assortment of nice items, including wallets, cufflinks, coasters, bottle openers, and more. And for that United fan that doesn’t care much for bottles, how about a leather flask?
Have you ever wanted to own a share of your favorite club? Well, Getting Personal makes that possible as well. For a mere £29.95, you can own a genuine share of Birmingham City, Celtic, Charlton, Millwall, Rangers, Sheffield United, Southampton, or Watford.
Getting Personal doesn’t just cater to football fans. If you’re looking for something to put a smile on that special person’s face, may it be for someone’s birthday, your mom for Mother’s Day, or your girlfriend/wife for Valentine’s Day or your anniversary, there’s plenty to choose from that will make them feel like a million bucks – all without costing anywhere near it.
For those who spend £30 or more, shipping is free, so you don’t have to worry about breaking the bank on getting the gifts delivered.
So, if you’re looking for that perfect gift with a personal touch – for someone else, or for you, because we all like feeling special, head on over to Getting Personal today to see what they’ve got for you.
Editor’s Note #1: They only ship to UK addresses, so if you don’t live in the UK, well, get to know at least one person who does!
Editor’s Note #2: I had their personal football calendar and the Manchester United football history book delivered (pays to have friends in the UK ), and I have to say, both are not only excellent gifts but also great conversation pieces and fun to use. I paid around £75 for the personalised book + shipping, but it’s worth it.
