You may remember when you were a child that the only real way to personalize something was to sew it or use a permanent marker, unless you happened to own an industrial machine that would do it for you. There weren’t label makers and stores rarely offered personalization services beyond some simple sewing skills. Nowadays personalized gifts are all the rage because they show thoughtfulness and ingenuity that is often lacking in gift-giving. You can give a personalized princess gift to a little girl who fancies reading, eating and playing with anything royalty-related or a personalized growth chart to a developing little lad. Here are some more ideas to help you get familiar with all the new ways gift-giving has gotten personal:
For the Babies
If you are attending a shower soon, think personalized gifts for babies. It is one of the best ways to show your thoughtfulness and love for the new momma and her soon-to-be child. You can order personalized baby books and even buy a classic children’s novel and have it personalized for the little one.
2. Stuffed Animals
Get a stuffed monkey, bear or elephant for the little tyke and have someone professionally engrave their name on it. It’s a special comfort item that will be cherished for years to come, and won’t have to be handed down to younger siblings.
For the Big Kids
As you probably know, you can never have too many books. Encourage children to love reading by supplying them with personalized books that focus on important events in their lives, such as a big birthday, or becoming an older sibling. It helps the story come alive for them when they see their name in it.
2. Lunch Boxes
Instead of having mom or dad write their name on a lunch box in permanent marker, give them a stylish and cute new way to carry their food to school by gifting them a personalized lunch box.
For the Grown Ups
There’s a reason that books is on this list yet again, everyone loves them and they always make a great gift idea, no matter the age of the recipient. When you’re trying to think of a special gift for an adult, it might be a good idea to consider a personalized childhood favorite book. See if you can find a cherished book they read over and over as a child and have it personalized. It is a sentimental and beautiful gift they will always adore.
2. Phone Cases
For many adults, their phone is their whole life. Consider buying them a personalized phone case that is trendy, sleek and will help them to never lose their phone again.
If you haven’t bought a personalized gift before, then now is the time. They are a hit with almost everyone and you can add a name to virtually anything and make it special and unique, even something like a personalized princess gift for an exceptional little girl or a personalized baby book for the next shower you’re attending. Your gift is sure to be a hit when everyone realizes how thoughtful and considerate you were to go personal.
