Find the meaning of your surname:

Are you looking for gift ideas for someone who has everything? Some people are just hard to buy for. But don’t worry because Hall of Names can help! There are always people in your family or circle of friends that seem to have everything they need already.  For instance, we expect you’ve given all the traditional gifts in years gone by: The socks, the chocolates, the perfume or aftershave set, the book. We’ve all been there – wanting to choose something special but not knowing what to give.

Plus, nobody wants to give a present that others have already given or thought of. Without a doubt, finding gift ideas for someone who has everything can be a minefield! As a result, we have created a gift range packed full of ideas to help you. Here are some of our best sellers, plus other ideas to get you started.


Who are you buying for?


This is an obvious question, but it’s a good starting point. Think hard about what the recipient enjoys or likes. Let this be your guiding principle. In general, people often make a critical mistake: They buy gifts for others, which they would like to receive themselves. Alternatively, they make an impulse purchase and later end up regretting the waste of money. Try to put yourself in the recipient’s shoes.

For example, if you know that Dad likes brandy, then consider something connected to this. A personalised brandy glass makes a fabulous gift, and it will be used and treasured for years to come. Not hidden in a box and only retrieved for your visits! Above all, it will be truly appreciated.


Consider your budget.


Again, this sounds obvious, but it is easy to spend far more than you intended. For example, if you are buying for a work colleague, then you are likely to have a different budget than if you were buying a gift for your parent or sibling. Finding gift ideas for someone who has everything, while sticking to a budget is not as hard as it sounds. For instance, when you ‘shop all gifts’ at Hall of Names, you can set your budget. Our useful ‘slider’ allows you to specify how much you want to spend. This handy tool means that you only see personalised gifts that fit your budget. As a result, you won’t be disappointed with your purchase. Instead, you will feel confident that you are giving a quality gift, that is also great value.


What makes Hall of Names’ gifts so distinctive?


Each one of our gifts includes the coat of arms relating to your chosen surname. The heraldry is often incredibly beautiful and varies from a simple format to a detailed design. Do have a look at our dictionary of  heraldry meanings, which explains the meanings of the symbols. With more than a million surnames on our database, we often have the name you desire.

Heraldry symbols and what they mean



When you have confirmed that we have your chosen name, we then replicate it on your selected gift. In some cases, the coat of arms will be replicated in full colour. For example, our glass plaque with wooden stand or pin stand, our mug and keyring set, our bottle stoppers and cufflinks: These are just some gifts where the coat of arms is in full colour. Our crystal is expertly engraved onto the glass as an outline. It is entirely down to personal choice which style of gift you prefer.
