A wooden plaque can be a lovely way to share a sentimental message.

It is 10 x 9.5cm and comes in a transparent sleeve with hessian twine for hanging.

Keyrings can be used with keys or as bag charms and this one would also make a good keepsake. It has two pendants on it and one is round and says ‘This Nanny belongs to’ and there is a rectangular one which can be personalised with a name. You can also change Nanny to another title such as Grandma. It is made from stainless steel which means that it is durable and will not rust.

Nans that like ornaments will like this elegant silver coloured rose. It is free-standing and has a heart on the base which says ‘Special Nan’.

Nanny’s that are sentimental will like this wooden box set. On the hinged lid of the box, there is a pretty butterfly wreath and inside it says ‘Nanny I love you here are 10 reasons why’.  Inside the box, there are ten wooden hearts which each have a lovely thing on which Nanny’s will do to make their grandchildren happy such as: your big hugs, your irresistible smile, you’re my best friend and you trust me and I trust you.
