Online personalised gift retailer

Getting Personal is a leading online retailer selling unique and personalised gifts. Established in 2005, the business started with just one product—a personalised calendar. It now sells over 4,000 items ranging from personalised cards, notebooks, mugs and chocolate to non-personalised items for general gifting.

Our investment enabled the business expanded its product range, increasing brand awareness and attracting more customers.
