Giving the Gift of a Poem



What our customers say…


Poems by Design takes pride in knowing that, using the details you provide, we are able to create and express a bespoke, personal message to be enjoyed, cherished and kept by each individual recipient.

Here are the thoughts from a few of our customers who have experienced giving, reading and receiving a personalised poem gift…


‘When I was asked to do a reading for a friend’s wedding I hadn’t a clue where to start until a friend suggested Poems by Design; They asked for some details and what style of reading I was looking for, and I was blown away at how well they understood me, my friend, and what I wanted. I didn’t need to make any amendments as the original version was perfect.

Best of all, I was confident in standing up during the ceremony to give my reading – which made my friends laugh and cry at the same time.’

Bethan, Llanelli

‘Poems by Design create fantastic presents which are very touching and personal. I’ve commissioned one as a christening gift and another for a 65th birthday.

They have been spot on every time thanks to Sophie’s insight and writing skills and I urge you to contact her when you’re looking for a really special gift. You won’t be disappointed!’

Kirstie, Cardiff

‘We ordered a poem for our friend’s new born baby and after describing our friends and providing a few details here and there, the poem turned out to be so accurate in every way. Comical, sweet and tailored specifically to them; it was a big success and will hopefully be remembered forever! The perfect gift! Thank you Poems by Design.’

Rhian, Cardiff

‘The poem written for my best friend’s birthday captured and summarised our friendship over the past few years brilliantly and also brought tears to our eyes. A perfect gift and one she has told me she will treasure forever. Thank you PbD!’

Julie, Hengoed

‘We were overwhelmed after reading the beautiful poem that my son and daughter-in-law presented us with on our 30th wedding anniversary. It was witty and made us laugh in places, but the sentiment was so heartfelt, we really were touched. What a clever and charming piece of writing – thank you!’

Karen and Colin, Chepstow
