We have all experienced the overwhelming task of getting someone special a gift for a special occasion. ESPECIALLY when they are very hard to shop for or… extremely picky. You get to the point where 2 full weeks, 14 shops, tons of rejected options and a few headaches later – you still have nothing. That ultimately leaves you with a few choices:
- Give up on the idea of a gift and just give money
- Get something super generic that most people would like
- Bite the bullet and continue searching for the perfect gift
- Just don’t give anything
The thing is, if this person is truly important to you, you want to spoil them and give them something more meaningful than fancy chocolates or some hand cream. You want to give them something that symbolizes how much you care or something that you know they will truly treasure and appreciate. This is why personalized gifts are the best! There are personalized gift options for anyone and everyone, depending on how well you know them.
First, let’s look at what classifies as a personalized gift – it is the act of gifting where a seemingly ordinary gift can be turned into a memorable one based off processes/alterations/design that personalize the object or service with something personal related to a specific person. Examples – adding someone’s name or picture to an item, writing a short message, gifting something based off sentimental value or something that has a special meaning to someone in particular. Not only is it a great way of making someone feel special, but it also nurtures and strengthens relationships (if you messed up, hint, here’s your chance to make up for it).
Below, we have a look at why personalized gifts are the best:
Suitable for any occasion & event
Whether you need to buy a gift for someone’s birthday, wedding, anniversary or other specific life event or just want to surprise your significant other or spoil your mom, you can easily find a personalized gift suitable for whichever situation you find yourself in. With tons of available options to go with and several customizable choices to choose from, you can ensure that the recipient of your gift gets something special and straight from the heart.
Thinking about someone & making them feel special
When it comes to gifts, they usually say it is the thought that counts. This statement has never been truer when it comes to personalized gifts. It is a great way of showing someone that you put time, effort and care into getting something authentic in order to make them feel special. The perfect example is a piece of jewelry with their name printed on it.
Personal connections & healthy relationships
Giving someone a gift that is not only specially personalized but also speaks to them personally, is a wonderful way to show them how much you care about them. A specialized gift shows how well you know the recipient and how much effort you put into getting them something true to themselves and what they would specifically cherish or enjoy. It is more than just a gesture of appreciation, but a token of your personal connection and special relationship.
Cherished & memorable gift with long-term value
A personalized gift isn’t something you can go and grab off a shelf. It is something unique and one of a kind, often of special and sentimental value. The perfect example is a piece of art (we recommend canvas prints) that include a collage of photos and special moments together that can be cherished for years to come – providing touching memories of heartfelt moments throughout the years.
