Personalised Traditional Crossword Print With Clues

We design a custom crossword using your words and clues. Crosswords are an extremely personal gift to give to someone you care about - a totally unique creation directly from you to them.

You'll need to put a bit of thought into it but it's worth it! Whoever receives your gift will be in no doubt that you've put a lot of effort into their gift. Half the fun is coming up with the clues and answers you want to put on your crossword. The other half is seeing the recipient's face when they read it!

There are so many ways to use a crossword puzzle print. You can show someone's favourite things as answers and a description of them as clues (e.g. TV show, wine, book, movie, food, pub). You can show travel destinations as answers and dates of travel as clues. You can put people's names as answers and have clues describing them underneath.

We've seen our customers come up with some really inventive ways to use this crossword: people's names as answers and their dates of birth as clues (never forget another birthday!), people's names as answers and a phrase about their personality as clues (e.g. The Creative One, The Athletic One, etc - think Spice Girls!), a crossword about beers and breweries.

Who would love this print?

  • someone with a birthday - put all their favourite things on one print!
  • anyone who's retiring or leaving work - put a few words to remind them of their colleagues and time at work - ask your co-workers to add a clue and an answer each!
  • someone who likes crosswords - lots of people do newspaper crosswords every day so giving them a crossword of their own is a great way to show them that you care
  • a great gift for inventive, creative people to give to someone else, because it's a fine way to give a little bit of 'you' in your gift
