Mummy Mondays: My 1st Years Personalised Shoes Review

Since having Tyne, My 1st Years has fast become one of my absolute favourite online stores.....

This is because it combines my two biggest loves in baby products - personalisation and attention to detail!

Because I chose an unusual name for Tyne, it will always be difficult (if not impossible!) to find products off the rack with his name on them - so the bespoke services of websites such as My 1st Years are always going to be really useful to me!

And I'm sure I've commented previously on how much I notice and appreciate it when a company makes an effort with their packaging - I really do think it makes all the difference!
And My 1st Years do NOT disappoint on this front - all of their products come boxed inside beautiful boxes which remind me very much of Tiffany & Co boxes! - featuring their brand logo.

The boxes always have a crisp white bow on the corner - such a lovely touch! Attention to detail like this is so important when considering using a website to purchase a gift that you'll be sending by mail order - I know if ever I need to send a baby gift via post in future without being able to wrap it myself, I will absolutely be using My 1st Years!
So...what was inside the lovely box?!

A pair of absolutely lovely personalised high-top trainers!

These lovely high-top trainers are both on-trend and super cute all at the same time!

They are made from high quality canvas upper and a soft nylex lining, making them super comfortable for the little one wearing them!

The trainers are available in sizes 0-6 months, 6-12 months and 12-18 months and come in a wide range of colour options including purple, yellow, blue, pink and red.

You can choose the colour of the text, and can even choose to have different text on each shoe if you want - anything up to 10 characters - so you could have a first name on one shoe and a middle name on the other - or whatever you want basically!

We chose to have Tyne's first name on both shoes, and we chose the white shoe with baby blue text as this will match most of his outfits!

I am so thrilled with the shoes, they are absolutely stunning - and its so lovely to have something that you won't be seeing on every other baby you pass!

I think these trainers are an absolute steal for just £20.00!!

My 1st Years also offer FREE UK delivery on all orders over £30.00 - I will absolutely be taking advantage of this when my sister gives birth to my baby nephew in September! :) 

She is also going with a rather unusual name so I can't wait to pick some lovely personalised items out for him!
