A race finished, a dream job obtained, a new house, a significant promotion, a minor triumph…One of life’s greatest pleasures is witnessing a loved one succeed in their goals after much effort and hope.

You’ll find ideas and advice for creating personalised messages in this guide for a range of congratulations occasions and recipients. Our ideas have been arranged according to what they say and how they convey it.
