How do I let you know what and where to engrave on my personalised gifts?
When I first started LilyCraft we used to sell a stainless steel credit card sized bottle opener. I purchased them from China (before we started machining our own products), and left the supplier a note to "LEAVE AT FRONT DOOR", expecting the delivery driver to leave my parcel at the door.
It turns out my supplier engraved all 100 bottle openers with "LEAVE AT FRONT DOOR". I didn't even know this supplier was offering an engraving service, nevermind that they thought I had a 100 friends who wanted to take my bottle openers home with them.
We have been doing this for years. (Engraving, not throwing bottle opener parties) We're really good at deciphering what and where you'd like us to engrave. If we're unsure, we'd normally check back with you or send an artwork proof for you to check. We're quite good at noting which is instructions, and which wording you actually want engraved.
To make it easy for us you can use the following example:
Box Front: Dad
Knife Handle: Michael
Box Inside: Happy Fathers Day 2023
You don't need to put your wording in quotation marks, and I guarantee that I wont engrave your message Verbatim like my Chinese supplier did.
What kind of environmental standards do you uphold?
We prefer to employ more expensive natural chemicals to use in our production process that are non-harmful because we don't like to use any products or chemicals that negatively affect either ourselves or the environment.
We're proud to be powered 100% by Solar power - even our large 3 Phase Machines, Air compressors and Conditioners are powered entirely by solar.
We use rainwater that has been gathered on site in our production process, with natural vegetable based cutting oils.
Our timber and leather is sourced sustainably. Our timber is legally obtained timber from plantations, such as the rubberwood plantations in Vietnam. Every 30 years after they cease producing rubber, the trees are harvested, and a new one is planted in their place.
If you are looking for eco-conscious personalised gifts Australia-wide, LilyCraft has a wide range for you to choose from.

Do you do Wholesale or Corporate Personalised Gifts?
They're actually some of our favorite orders!
We have supplied to aerospace companies for their staff, to agricultural companies for their clients, and to many event companies for their promotions.
We most certainly craft our personalised products for corporate clients who need 50+ personalised gifts.
We are able to offer white label/ rebranding for large orders with your business logo and personalisation requirements.
We do offer quantity discounts for bulk orders, however we do steer away from all wholesale. It is too much work for too little profit to offer our personalised gifts for wholesale.
We dont craft cheaply made mass produced items. We put our souls into each product and do boutique batch manufacturing of products that you wont get anywhere else but here at LilyCraft.
Can you engrave my own Handwriting or my Child’s drawings?
Absolutely. We can engrave your own handwriting or child’s drawings on any of our personalised gifts at no extra charge.
We have added Grandma’s recipes in her own writing onto cutting boards, the families hand prints onto hammer gift sets, and hand written messages onto the inside of our personalised men’s leather wallets.
Just take a photo from your phone with good lighting of the handwritten message that you’d like us to engrave for you. To engrave your Child's drawing, handprint or footprint (tricky to get those newborn handprints!), just send us through a picture taken with your phone.
We get the best results if your photograph is clear with good lighting, drawn on white paper in a single colour, preferably black.
We do not engrave any photographs, but pictures of handwriting or a Child's drawing normally come out really well engraved on our personalised timber gift boxes.
If you’re unsure whether or not your image is suitable, just send it through to us and we can see what result we can get when we prepare it for engraving.
How do I care for my Personalised Wooden Cheese or Cutting Board?
What will make your timber cutting board to last the longest is not to let it soak in water, just use warm water and soap to wash it, then dry it off right away. When you notice the board becoming lighter in colour, give it a wipe with sunflower oil or processed coconut oil. Unprocessed coconut oil will leave a flavour on the food. Do not use olive oil - it becomes rancid.
All of our wooden cutting boards come delivered with a food safe and waterproof organic tung oil coating. This coating is self healing from cuts, and the underlying timbers are naturally antimicrobial. This is why wood is still the preferred cutting board material.
If you’d really want to treat your cutting boards and your nose, then use Gilly's food safe waxes. They smell amazing, and contain natural Carnauba and Bees waxes protecting your timber while making it look fantastic.
All of their products smell incredible. I believe you might be able to get a tin from Bunnings, some kitchen stores, or even order direct from Gilly's themselves. They are in Western Australia. Great bunch of people to deal with, and really great smelling waxes!
Mineral oil works well and is food safe, but it’s not a permanent coating.
I personally haven’t had problems with the occasional coat of sunflower oil, or processed coconut oil if that is all you have available in your kitchen, but for a permanent food safe coat, you can’t beat tung oil which will harden and waterproof the chopping board.
Can I pick up my personalised gifts order?
Yes! You're more than welcome to pick up your order from us in Brisbane if it was a last minute order, or you're worried about shipping times.
Please get in contact with us after placing your order and we will send you the address to our facility.
Please note that pickups are only from the dispatch area, and visits into the production facility by customers are not covered by our insurance, so we unfortunately cannot give you a factory tour.
If you'd like to take a peek into our production facility, check out some of our videos on YouTube.
Are your Gavels for actual use, or ceremonial only?
Our Gavels are in the mess halls of the Army surviving rowdy alcohol fuelled dinners. They’re in use with various air force squadrons, and we have sent out multiples to Naval bases. We have crafted Gavel gift sets that have been sent to Judges at the High and Supreme Courts of Australia, and Presidents in South America. We send them to Worshipful Masters of various chapters of the Masonic Lodge weekly.
Our Personalised Judge Gavels get pounded daily by numerous auctioneers across the globe and rest on retired Mayors and Judges desks celebrating their careers.
Our Gavels are made to be used. The handles are only crafted from straight grained timbers, and the gavels that need to take extra abuse strictly only use Merbau or Pecan Wood Handles – the only two legal striking timbers used for tool handles in Australia.
How do I keep my knife sharp?
It’s a bit of a process to turn some blade steel into a razor sharp edge.
We don’t expect you to have a linishing machine that grinds a blunt piece of Japanese steel into a precision edge.
We use many belt grits to remove the bulk of material, going down to finer and finer grits before finally finishing that edge off on a leather strop.
By the time you get your personalised pocket knife, all of the hard work has been done to the blade. You only need to maintain that blade edge now and then, which is best done with a diamond encrusted sharpening stone, a bit of honing oil and for the final touch, a leather strop. The backside of a leather belt will work just fine also.
You don’t want to remove any bulk material from your blade, that was done during manufacturing. You’re simply maintaining the edge now. A light hone with your sharpening stone on both sides of the edge, and a few swipes on the leather is more than enough to keep your blade crisp.
Premium blade steels will show surface corrosion if not kept dry and oiled.
Always dry your blade steel after cleaning and store them dry.
What is LilyCraft's Phone Number?
Because we're a small team, we preffer to keep all communication through messages and email.
We would be half as efficient if we were to be taking calls all day.
If there are any issues or concerns with your order, we contact our customers if they have left their phone numbers for us.
We have built our own internal order tracking system which keeps you up to date with all production steps, and send you photos of your finished products, as well as photos of your parcel once it has been packaged.
We keep you updated every step of the way, and we take care of you even after your order has been delivered should you have any issues. Just check out our reviews - those are real reviews from real customers - we really care about what we do and about our customers.
Can you Stain or Colour my Personalised Wooden Gift?
You know what? We never fake the appearance of our wood by using stains or artificial colors. That's just not our style.
We're all about quality here, so you won't find us using cheap, soft timbers like pine and then trying to make them look expensive with tricks. Nope, we're all about the real deal.
We go the extra mile to source quality solid hardwoods, and we do it legally and sustainably. In fact, we even track down some of the rarest timbers on the planet, especially those with vibrant colors and exceptional workability. We've got a soft spot for local Australian species too, because they offer some of the most beautiful and hardest woods on Earth.
What's truly remarkable is that some of these timbers grow in the harshest, driest places on the planet, making them incredibly dense and strong. And guess what? Australia takes pride in being home to the top 5 hardest woods on Earth.
So, when you look at your wooden gift boxes, personalized knife handles, and customized gift boxes, what you're seeing is the pure beauty and character of the timber itself. No two pieces are ever quite the same, and that's what makes each one special.
