About Us


We are Create Gift Love, formerly known as Made Lovingly Made. We create beautiful, personalised gifts made from ethically sourced wood, leather and stainless steel. From keyrings to cufflinks to coasters, we even make wooden bow ties. Everything is made to order in our little workshop in The New Forest, UK and all items are individually hand checked before being dispatched. Priding ourselves on quality and innovation, we love what we do and hope it shows in the products we create.

Started in 2012 by husband and wife duo, Tony and Emily Carr, we are now in the exclusive best seller’s list on Not on the High Street with orders being placed from as far afield as Australia. As a trained pharmacist, Emily started Create Gift Love by chance when demand for her handmade cufflinks began to soar. Outgrowing the shed in the back garden pretty quickly, we now produce over 300 individual products for all occasions.

This includes Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Weddings, New Home, New Baby and Christenings. Particular highlights include the Never Forget Range meaning important dates can always be remembered, the Photo Range is perfect for displaying your favourite images and our beautiful Keepsake Boxes to keep your most treasured memories in.

At Create Gift Love we not only love the products we produce but we love the environment too. It is paramount that only sustainably sourced wood is used in the manufacturing of our products. The wood that we purchase from suppliers is either FSC or PEFC certified. These two organisations account for some 98% of the world's certified forests and chain of custody certificates.

We recognise that we have a responsibility to the environment beyond legal and regulatory requirements which is reflected in the processes we have put in place. We look to manufacture most products in-house but should we ever need to outsource certain processes, we look to local suppliers to minimise our carbon footprint.

As registered members of The Woodland Trust, the UK’s largest woodland conservation charity, we are helping to offset our carbon emissions. We use approximately 1000kg of wood across our product range a year so we ensure trees are re-planted to compensate for this.
