NEW Stainless Steel Straw

Companies around the world have already begun removing plastic straws from their stores and one by one, cities have started banning them. Plastic straws have a negative impact on our oceans and marine wildlife since most do not get recycled.

Creative Gift Direct’s new stainless steel drinking straw set will help you reduce waste and be environmentally friendly. The set includes two straws, one straight and one bent, a cleaning brush and clear, water resistant pouch.

The straws are made of 18/8 stainless steel, are dishwasher safe, have rounded tips and are BPA free.

These sets make for a perfect gift or door prize!

The Tassel Was Worth the Hassle

Graduation is a major life transition for young adults who are ready to take on the world.

The Leatherette 2 Card Deck Set is great for grads who are moving into an apartment with roommates or for someone who likes to entertain. The leatherette top can be laser engraved with the engraving showing up as black.

Are you passing down a family heirloom or did your grad receive a pin during graduation? This charming 3.25” square box is a great piece to add to any jewelry collection to keep those cherished items safe. It has a lift off lid with beaded edging and is lined in a dark blue flocked cloth.

Add some personal touches to your mantel piece with this wood arch clock in piano finish. The area under the gold accented clock face has room for engraving with a graduation date, name or special quote.

Welcome Little Bundle of Joy


Is a wee little one about to enter your family? Celebrating with the mom-to-be can be so much fun! As the big day approaches hopefully family, friends, and maybe even co-workers will host a baby shower to help the new parents get ready to welcome their little bundle of joy. From diapers, to onesies, to keepsake items, they will need it all. If you are looking for something personal and unique, check out some of our specially designed baby gifts that will be cherished for years to come.

Some of our more popular items for baby showers are the adorable banks we offer. They come in so many fun styles including Noah’s Ark, a kitty, teddy bears, a puppy, elephants, trucks of all kinds, and, of course, the traditional piggy bank. There are a wide variety of looks to choose from such as brushed pewter, ceramic, or silver. As always, our keepsakes can be personalized with the name of the child, his/her birthday, or a monogram. You may even want to start the newborn off with something to fill the bank!

Babies mean that there are many milestones to come in the weeks, months, and years ahead. The first smile, first word, and first steps are among some of the much-anticipated landmark moments. In addition to these moments are the loss of the first tooth and the first hair cut. Our personalized Baby First Curl and Tooth Silver Box Set is a traditional keepsake gift featuring a raised Teddy with “My First Curl and My First Tooth.” The years will pass by quickly but items like this can be held onto forever.

Baby’s first photo will be a cherished item for years to come. Celebrate this moment with a “Hinged Baby Frame and Engraved Message” to the new little one. Include a short message, quote, or maybe even the baby’s name and date of birth. While there are many picture frames to choose from, this particular one has an adorable teddy bear and hooks that allow the piece to be hung on a wall as well.
