Meet Tina


Hi, my name is Tina Dudley.  I started A Personalised Place over 19 years ago while living in Atlanta Georgia in the USA. I immigrated to New Zealand in 2005 and brought my passion for Christmas decorations with me. I have travelled the world and most recently lived for the last 3.5 years in Japan. I am back living in Christchurch New Zealand as of 2017.

I started this business with a love to be creative and to make gifts for friends and family that would survive the test of time. All the designs are my original designs. Each ornament has a name and a story on how I developed the ornament and how it fit into my life.

 These ornaments are not just decorations but they are the story of my life. Each ornament was designed to represent a memory or milestone in my life or in a life of one of family members or one of my customers. All these ornaments have deep personal connections to me. I hope by purchasing an ornament from me that you will be reminded of a special memory or event or a loved one.

I hope you love these ornaments and make memories with me. I look forward to catching up with all of you soon. We are back in Christchurch New Zealand and will be accepting new on-line orders in September. My husband and I are building a new purpose build studio to create wonderful new designs and product lines. Stay tune for some exciting announcements and where in Christchurch you can stop by and catch up with me.

All The Best, 

Tina Dudley, A Personalised Place
