So you’ve decided to get a personalised gift for that special birthday or anniversary. You want something that will mean something to the recipient, that can be cherished for years to come and that will remind the person or people receiving it of their special day. Here at Reza Wood Designs we offer a complete engraving service and we’ll work with you to create a personalised whisky barrel gift to be proud of. All our products are individually handcrafted and we take great pride in getting it right for every customer. Read on for our top tips on requesting personalisation and for some examples of our work.
Plan ahead - choose your gift
Have a browse on our website shop and have a think about the kind of gift you are looking for. The majority of the products we make can be engraved but some may require a bit of adaptation depending on the image or text. You are very welcome to contact us to discuss your requirements and we are happy to offer advice on what we think will look best.
Place your order in plenty of time
Many of our gifts are made to order and it can take some time to complete the laser engraving, in fact we advise our customers it will take around 2 - 3 weeks to personalise any of our products. Sometimes it’s a faster turnaround but the closer it gets to busy seasons like Christmas the longer you may have to wait. By ordering in advance the process will be smoother and you won’t be waiting for your delivery at the last minute.
Think carefully about your message
Over the years we have engraved all sorts of messages, logos and even a copy of someone’s tattoo! There really is no limit to what can be engraved onto our whisky barrel gifts and furniture. We may need a particular file type if you need an image engraved so it’s best to check before you order. Once we receive your engraving request we will double check the exact wording when we confirm your order so please do check that again yourself to make sure it’s accurate.
Laser engraving to suit every budget
There is an additional cost to get your gift personalised and depending on your request, prices start from £20. You are welcome to ask for a quotation before you order or if you prefer, tell us your budget and we can find something to match.
Laser engraving for special occasions
Over the years we’ve engraved our gifts for many occasions. Weddings are probably the most popular and we’ve engraved gifts for the couple’s parents, the father of the bride and the best man. Our whisky glass tasting trays are also popular wedding gifts for the happy couple, engraved with the date of their wedding. We can also organise glass engraving for you.
Business logo engraving
We’ve completed many projects for businesses both local and overseas who require their logo or brand name engraved. We have developed a strong reputation for reliability and we can be depended on to meet your deadlines, especially for events. We have worked with several distilleries to create bespoke whisky tasting trays for their whisky tours and we love the challenge of meeting our client’s demands. Creating something that matches their brand while meeting the operational demands.
Order now for Christmas
We're well into wedding season and as themed weddings are big at the moment, we’ve pulled together a wee guide on how to incorporate whisky into your big day. At Reza Wood Designs we make a range of innovative whisky barrel gifts and furniture which are sure to add a bit of individuality to your special moment. Scotland has a lot to be proud of and whisky is one of our most successful products around the world so we’d highly recommend adding a bit of Scottish heritage.
A personal whisky tasting session
If you’re not sure how your guests feel about whisky, this can be a gentle introduction. Set up a whisky tasting area so guests can try a range of drams. You could include your own favourite drams or make it a blind tasting with guests trying each one and voting for their favourite or guessing the distillery or whisky region. Add one of our whisky tasting trays as a display piece, engraved with your names and wedding date to make it even more memorable and we can even customise with your wedding tartan or Harris Tweed. Here's one we created recently with red Harris Tweed inserts and the couple's names and wedding date engraved.
The wedding Toast
If you are having a more traditional wedding and having whisky as your toast, you may wish to use a quaich, a traditional Scottish drinking cup and a symbol of friendship, used to share a dram together. Our quaichs are created from sustainable Scottish hardwoods, each one is individually made and makes a great keepsake of your first toast together as a married couple.
Attention grabbing centre pieces
You can take it from us that there’s nothing better than a nice peaty whisky aroma. So why not go a step further, as well as naming your tables after whisky distilleries you can add whisky barrel tealight holders to each table, we offer a range of sizes but would recommend our heart tealights for a round table or our long stave tealight holders for longer tables for a more intimate or smaller gathering.
Gifts for the wedding party
Continue the theme with whisky barrel personalised gifts for the wedding party or favours. Some of our most popular gifts for weddings are cufflinks, mini tealight holders or our whisky tasting trays. All can be engraved with a personal message like your names and the date of your wedding. For favours we would suggest our whisky barrel keyrings engraved as a permanent reminder of the occasion.
If you are thirsty for more then why not get married and hold your reception at a distillery? There’s so much history to discover at many of Scotland’s distilleries and a whole lot of atmosphere to soak up, not to mention great potential for some unusual wedding photograph backdrops. One of our personal favourites is Annandale Distillery near Dumfries which is available to hire for your ceremony and reception with the opportunity to have photos taken in the still house and even to have your own whisky cask painted!
