With Valentine’s Day coming up we thought we’d focus on personalisation: a feature of many of our products from across the range.


We love working with mirror-polished stainless steel.  It’s a hard material, and difficult to work with, but you can get a uniquely sharp, crisp, engineered finish and a durable mirror-polish that makes it ideally suited to men’s accessories.  Another great feature of stainless steel is that it can be engraved: perfect for personalising a gift – even one you plan to give to yourself!


Some of our customers ask for initials, others for personal messages: depending on the engraveable surface area of the product, there can be room for up to 40 characters – not quite a tweet, but enough for a personal expression!  We can even do graphics: if you’re interested in having a unique graphic design engraved on something, just write to us at mailorder@dalvey.com.  The team are always happy to help.


We engrave everything in-house, using laser-engraving technology and a set of jigs that we’ve hand-built and accumulated over the years.  The technology’s quite impressive when you watch it in action – as you can see in this video, made by our senior engraver:





In specialising in design-led men’s accessories we’ve always had customers who tell us that we’re really useful when it comes to gift-giving occasions.  It’s true that finding a great gift for a discerning man isn’t always easy, but it’s something that we hope we can really help you with.  Our new site has a comprehensive gift-finder built-in: one of the sections of which focuses purely on personalisation: personalised-gifts.  Besides this tool, we’re always happy to hear from you, and to offer our suggestions if you’re really struggling to find the perfect thing for someone who’s not easy to buy for – just write to our Mail Order team at the above email address, or call us on +44 (0)1349 884 111.


Carbon Fibre Business Card Case.


For initials to be engraved on items that are used every day, some of the best products in our range are Credit Card Money-clip or “CMCs”; our understated but elegant Cufflinks; and our engineered Business Card Cases.  For longer messages, the perfect gifts can be found in our iconic flask collection.  There are plenty of options though – check out the personalised-gifts section of the site to have a look for yourself, and as I say, be sure to write or call if you’re looking for advice or have any questions.


All the best,




Neil Grant
