1. Pick your 2 My M&M's colours
There are 15 colours to choose from. We’ve gone for a patriotic red and blue.
2. Upload your personalised photo or graphic
I’ve uploaded a pic of myself looking rather cheerful at Glastonbury last year. The wife will be ecstatic. (Tip: close-ups against a white background work best).
3. Add your special message
‘Love the Monkey’ is my special message. It’s a long story, honestly.
4. Pick your packaging
It’s a gift box that shows her that “I’m thinking of you”. It includes 400g worth of Mat Toor M&M’s. She’ll be thinking of me soon. Yay!

The M&Ms have landed!
We paid a little extra for Express Delivery and BOOM!, our personalised M&M’s arrived in just 4 days. Note: Your postman may not make the same ‘Boom’ noise when he delivers your package.
We opted for the Thinking Of You gift box which is simply a cardboard box with a big mugshot of Red on the front. If you really want to make an impression we would recommend you package them up with a bit of imagination yourself. (Perhaps in an M&M’s mug with a spot of lace).
The printing quality on the M&Ms was excellent – you could really tell that the face was yours truly’s, and the text was clear and readable. One slight disappointment was that the M&Ms were decorated with either the mugshot photo or the message – not both.
My wife was delighted with the surprise gift and immediately set upon finding creative ways of disposing with my microscopic head. Crunching it between her teeth soon wore out its welcome. As did the “I’ve got you literally under my thumb,’ gag.
A quick survey of her Facebook friends soon provided the ultimate way to dispose of my likeness with a touch of style. Lay a trail of personalised M&M’s for Sid, our friendly local squirrel, to follow and nibble on. Until he settles happily on our patio, chomping away with both cheeks stretched to bursting point with M&Ms featuring my face.
My wife is in hysterics of laughter. She has an odd sense of humour.
My M&M's Review: The Verdict
This is the only present I’ve ever bought my wife which still provides her with satisfaction and amusement weeks after she received it. The creation process is simple and easy to grasp while the results are genuinely astounding. You really can print a recognisable photo of your face on the side of an 8mm piece of chocolate candy.
Whether it’s for wedding favours, a business gift, a birthday or simply a way to keep the missus happy, the quirky, personal touch of My M&M’s delivers the goods. A present that surprises and delights in equal measure. Thoroughly recommended.Shop now on My M&M's
