Since birthdays are all about celebrating the individual, you can create a personalised cross stitch of their name. It could also have a little motif of all the things they love. You can also choose their favourite colours!


Celebrate the union of 2 very special people in your life with a wedding sampler. You can incorporate their names and the date of the wedding. This will be a special way they can remember their day!

New Beginnings

This can be for people moving into their first home or a new home. There are plenty of "Home Sweet Home" patterns to be found. You can use colours they love or the scheme they want to use when they decorate their home.

Arrival of a Baby

A lovely way to welcome a newborn into the world is with a cute birth sampler. This traditionally includes the baby name, date of birth and weight. You can make it to match the nursery theme too.


You can stitch an anniversary card for the special couples in your life. These are especially great for the milestone anniversaries where you can match the theme. For example, Ruby Anniversary.

To Say Thank You

You can express gratitude for someone who has helped you. This is quite commonly done for teachers that have been special. 

Cross stitch gifts can carry a layer of sentimentality because they are crafted with love and care with the recipient in mind. These gifts not only celebrate moments but create lasting memories!
