A hidden message for your eyes only

Hidden messages are something that has been used for centuries to amuse, entertain, delight and even protect us. The Victorians, in particular, loved to use flowers, precious stones and metals, pieces of jewellery, and even handheld fans to pass discrete communications to their loved ones and even share elaborate messages with others.

And it’s no different for us today. We love the thrill and excitement of passing on hidden messages! Smart packaging and product manufacturers will sometimes use a hidden message to delight and entertain purchasers - from a raincoat that displays a pattern when wet, through to comedic messages printed on the bottom of carton packages.

But as much as we love finding these hidden messages, it’s even better if you’re the person sending them.

That’s why we give you the option of adding a hidden message on some of our wooden gifts. It gives you the opportunity to make your gift that little bit extra special.

You may, for example, have a specific phrase you always say to your partner or child. When you order one of our photo frames, you could get that message engraved on the back of your photo frame, as well as a message intended more ‘for everyone’s eyes’ on the front.

Take that budding chef in your life. A chopping board would make a great gift, as it’s both useful and can have a unique message engraved on the front. But what if they could turn it over and see a little motivational message underneath, encouraging them on, when they feel a little out of place or out of their comfort zone on their cooking journey?

You could do the same with a metal display board for the athlete in your house, letting them know how much you love them and are proud of their achievements.

Hidden messages can be used to motivate, inspire, delight, and remind people of how much they’re loved, admired, missed and fondly remembered.

So next time you’re thinking about the perfect gift for a friend or loved one, why not think about adding a little something extra to it? Wooden gifts are great for this, as they can be engraved with almost anything you want - and it’s a great way of keeping a much-loved tradition of loving hidden messages, alive.

If you’re looking for a wooden gift you can have engraved with a message, head over to our online shop. We have a range of gifts available for you and each one can include a message of your choice. Obviously, not all of them can have a hidden message on them (it’s really difficult to hide a message on a wooden hammer!), but they can all have a heartfelt message engraved. But if you’ve got your heart set on a hidden message to your loved one, check out the chopping boards and platters, photo frames, and our medal display boards - as each of them will let you leave a secret message of your choice!
