Tears, Laughter & Leaving Presents...

Leaving presents can be difficult to get right, there is the happiness of having achieved something and moving on to the next thing, but also the sadness of what you leave behind. There is a fine balance to be struck between leaving a legacy, honouring the memories but moving forward with a smile...

We make leaving presents that won’t be forgotten...

Memories are the images we carry with us forever; yet sometimes they are captured in the solid & enduring things we leave when we move on to that next big adventure. Our leavers gifts tell a story and become part of the lives of those we say thank you to... Whether you are leaving school or somebody is retiring from work, we make the perfect mementos. Our unique, beautiful yet practical designs are not trinkets, but useful items that will be used every day.

We first started making our iconic leaving benches when my daughter left her prep-school, but the idea of engraving each slat of our parkland benches soon caught on. Very meaningful presents have been created by hand engraving hundreds of school leavers names on these solid teak benches, and one day these children will return to their alma mater with their own children, searching the grounds for their bench, finding their name. Some of the other names on the bench will still be a constant in their lives, some may have become famous and others you may just wonder where they now are...

I have seen, in person, the emotional presentation of these benches and just writing about it gives me goosebumps. I can only imagine how you feel being at the receiving end of one of these!

We can incorporate a large number of names, signatures, crests and logos, making them truly bespoke for your occasion.

So many of our designs lend themselves as leavers presents.

We can engrave something truly special and memorable for any occasion and any budget.
