Five Reasons to Give a Personalized Gift

The holidays are always oversaturated with mass market brands trying to convince you their gifts are the most special. If you’re buying into that, you’re bound to be disappointed – and so will the recipient. A gift is supposed to represent how much you care about someone, so giving them something mass-produced really isn’t saying much at all is it? That’s why this season, we say make every gift count. With a personalized gift.

A personalized gift is a gift that has something personal or unique engraved, carved or added in some way. This can be someone’s name or likeness, a business name, a special date, celebratory occasion, or it can be a saying or quote that person will understand and appreciate. Some brands go even further like using gorgeous calligraphy to personalize your gift. Giving a personalized gift is a great way to show how much thought and love you’ve put into their gift.

There are so many reasons it’s better to give personalized gifts this Christmas, here are some:

1.) It’s thoughtful

Whether it’s displaying their name or some other message they’ll love, they’ll be no question this gift was specifically chosen for them – and not something you randomly grabbed to check off a list. It shows you put a lot of thought into it. And the thought truly does count. Your thoughtfulness will make your gift that much sweeter and beloved when they open it.

2.) It’s emotional

Adding a personal touch, such as a meaningful date or message, gives your gift an emotional aspect other gifts just don’t have. The best gifts invoke good feelings all around and connect the giver to the recipient in a special way. Show me a mass-produced gift that does that.

3.) It’s sentimental 

The great thing about personalized gifts is they often become much more than just gifts. Your gift will become something the person treasures, reflects on and cherishes year after year. And because it’s truly theirs and only theirs, the attachment to their gift will only grow.

4) It’s creative (and fun)

There are so many great ways to personalize a gift, but it doesn’t have to be sentimental or emotional. After all, everyone is different, so being able to give your gift a specific feel that works just right for them makes all the difference. Things like inside jokes, family nicknames and a variety of other great ideas can make your gift deeply personal in the right way – and guarantee it’s something they’ll love.

5.) It’s original

The simple act of adding someone’s name or something meaningful to your gift instantly makes it special and one of a kind. In a world where it’s gotten harder and harder to find something truly original, your personalized gift can be as unique and one-of-a-kind as you want it to be. And when they see it, they’ll know your gift was created just for them.
