When it comes to gift giving, especially at this time of year, we want to give something special, something that has meaning to the recipient. But we all have those people in our lives that are so incredibly difficult to buy for because they seemingly have “everything” already. If you are struggling to find the so called “perfect” gift this holiday season whether it is for a parent, relative, friend, neighbor, or coworker, personalizing is a truly memorable route to take. It can turn an ordinary gift into an extraordinary keepsake.
Personalized gifts can help you express not only that you know the person well, but also expresses how you feel about the person. Gifts with engravings of the person’s initials, a quote or a symbol can make a gift even that more special. Personalized gifts can be funny, sentimental or just plain practical. For example, for a relative who just got engaged and has set the date may cherish a mantle clock with the date of the wedding. In fact it may be the gift that they treasure for a lifetime. Or the family member who just got a promotion may love that you took the time to create a nameplate or business card holder with their name and position proudly engraved upon it. While these gifts may be practical they also have a touch of sentimentality that shows you went the extra mile to make the gift “just right” for that person.
Personalized gifts can also exhibit your funny side. Mugs, key chains, frames and other keepsakes can be emblazoned with a funny quote that happened last time friends were together or a date of the next Girls Camping Weekend can give friends something to look forward too. While these personal gifts can show off your funny, sentimental or serious side they don’t need to be bank-busters. All these personalized gifts really have to do is have a meaning or connection to the person you want to give it to. Isn’t that what you are really after this holiday season? Consider personalizing this season to make an ordinary gift extraordinary!
