Welcome a new baby into the world with a beautifully written and presented bespoke poem. The perfect gift for a christening or naming ceremony, or for new parents from grandparents, family members or friends.
The poem will capture all the special wishes that you want to send to mark the arrival of a baby boy or girl - a gift that they will treasure for a lifetime.
After completing a short questionnaire, Lizzie our founder will write a completely original poem, based on the information you provide and the things you would like to say. The poem will then be turned into a stunning foiled print, embossed with our signature mark, professionally framed and beautifully gift wrapped with a ribbon and tag.
No formulas or templates are ever used in the writing of our poems. As Lizzie writes each commission with originality and passion, tuning in to what you would like to say, she does not set a word-count which might restrict the flow of her beautiful words. As a guide though, the poem will be around 28-48 lines long.
It’s absolutely stunning, I can’t thank you enough. It’s going to be such a lovely Christmas gift. I’m over the moon with it. Thank you again. xLouise Evans
How it works
Your original poem will be written personally by award-winning poet and artist Lizzie Mole.
Based on a simple questionnaire that will be sent at the time of ordering, she'll ask for the lowdown on the new arrival, family and anything that will allow her to create an affectionate portrait of the special little person.
A draft will be sent to you by email for approval and any small changes can be made to ensure you are happy with the final piece.
Your poem will be printed on the highest quality archival paper from heritage paper merchant GF Smith.
The fine-grain smooth art paper is 240gsm and has been selected specifically for foiling to ensure a beautiful finish. Simply choose from silver, gold or rose gold at the point of ordering.
The framed poem is approximately A4 in size, with outside dimensions of 24.2 x 30.3cm and depth 3.7cm
Our frames are handmade in Brighton by a highly skilled framer, specialising in hand-finishing. We've chosen a simple hand-painted white frame with a slight grain to complement our foiled poems.
The frame has been designed with a recess, which means there is a space between the print and the glazing. This allows the light to really catch the foiled finish, as well as creating a gallery-style look, only achieved by professional framing.
The frame is made from sustainably sourced pine and is glazed with picture grade acrylic.
Hello baby Martha,
and welcome to the world.
We’ve all been so excited,
to meet you baby girl.
For months I kept you safe and warm
all cosy in my tummy,
and now you’re here
I’m overjoyed, that I can be your mummy.
I think you might be like me,
I’m always running late,
you took your time in coming too,
well past your given date.
Your hair is blonde and wispy,
your eyes so big and blue,
your tiny fingers kill me,
and your tiny toes do too!
Daddy says you look like me,
I think you’re more like him,
he says you have my button nose,
I say you have his chin.
It really doesn’t matter
if you look like him or me,
we’re both just feeling truly blessed,
no longer two, but three!
I know this might sound funny,
but I think my heart has grown.
It’s filled with all this extra love,
for you and you alone.
So my darling daughter,
know I’ve loved you from the start.
You’ll forever be a part of me,
the best bit of my heart.
