About Personalisation Boutique

Our origins, our team and our philosophy

Personalisation Boutique is an online gifting boutique unlike any other. We offer a truly individual service, bringing a wealth of luxury personalised homeware gifts to your door, as well as offering a bespoke sourcing service for unusual or hard-to-find items.

Personalisation Boutique was founded by Benjamin Hornung and Neil Schwartz who between them have over 50 years’ experience in buying and product development for the gifting market and manufacturing industry - so we know a thing or two about sourcing the finest merchandise that brings joy to both the giver and receiver. We use our global connections to scour the world’s best producers to source only unique, premium products, often in limited quantities, but always exquisitely made and created with integrity.

I followed my grandfather and father into the manufacturing and selling of luxury products, so it’s definitely in my blood! Over the past 20 years and counting, I’ve been immersed in every part of the process, from the design studio through to the boardroom, overseeing production in the Far East - where I spent a memorable few years living in Hong Kong - through to logistics. When people buy a product, they are also buying an experience, and elevating and enriching that experience is at the very heart of our ethos.

I’ve spent several decades in the gifting and packaging world as a Senior Operations Manager, covering everything from planning, logistics, process management and manufacturing, supplying many popular high street stores and large retailers. Personalised products and gifts are so much more meaningful than a regular purchase, and the joy that comes with a more niche and individual experience is something I’m deeply passionate about.

I started my working life within the toy industry managing retailers’ stock and consumer orders, before moving into the role of a buyer. I was then drawn into the world of designer gifts and paper where I developed a keen eye for the uncompromisingly high product quality demanded by the luxury market. Over the last 16 years, I’ve built a reputation for superior customer service, and my customers know that, with me, they always come first.

Why shop in our boutique?

We believe that many people these days are dissatisfied with the products on offer from the main UK retailers and online stores. Personalisation Boutique was born out of the recognition that mass-produced, homogenous and poor-quality gifts usually end up in landfill once the initial excitement wears off. 

 So we only ever source and supply high-end luxury goods, often with a limited production run, that are as practical and long lasting as they are beautiful and unique. Gifts that everyone will love to receive and that we would reward ourselves with given the opportunity! 

Take a look at our online boutique, you’re sure to find the perfect gift. And if on the rare occasion you can’t, then get in touch and we will use our contacts to find it for you. The answer is yes, what do you desire?
