Why buy personalised gifts
Over the past 10 years there has been a huge increase in the range of personalised gifts. There’s everything from engraving gifts, personalising jewellery, books, furniture, home accessories, office gadgets, artwork – the choice is seemingly endless. If you needed any convincing as to why personalised gifts are great, we’ve come up with our top 5 reasons to buy a personalised gift.
What makes personalised gifts so special?
Stands out from mass produced items
Many personalised gifts are hand made by independent sellers so are not mass produced. A lot of independent sellers are small solo or family businesses and many people would rather buy from micro-business rather than huge corporations. Smaller business can often be more responsive too and try to make the piece truly bespoke, just for the recipient to make them feel extra special.
The personal touch
A personalised gift is just that – it has a personal touch from you to them. It shows you’ve put thought often with a good dose of love into choosing something specifically for them. Once personalised it’s unique so no two are really the same.
Keepsakes – treasured for years to come
Whether you’re buying personalised jewellery, artwork, office or homeware gifts, they are often keepsake gifts so can be kept for years. What better than to have personalised gift adorning your house – every now and then you catch a glimpse and are reminded of a special event or a reminder of the person who bought it for you.
Boys or Girls
Personalising gifts is great for everyone and some gifts can be truly bespoke to that person. It’s often a great way to buy something for the person who you feel has everything or when you’re struggling with tricky occasions. I’m often asked what to buy for a boys christening gift more so than girls as people usually say there are more gift options for girls. That’s why we designed artwork for boys which can then be personalised to make an ideal gift.
Whether it’s a picture to decorate a bedroom, personalised gifts can be really useful and are a reminder for the recipient that they are being thought about.
Looking for a special personalised gift?
If you’re looking for a personalised gift to celebrate a special occasion, such as a christening or new born, then we can help. We create beautiful pieces of art and each one is personalised with a message from you, to let the child know you’re thinking of them.
You can include any message you wish to make it just that little bit more special. For example, popular messages over the years have included, christening or birth details such as:
Olivia Emily Anderson – born on 12th June 2019 at 4.35am, weighing 7lb 3oz
Wishing you a life blessed with much fun, love and happiness. All our love, The Smith’s xxx
