Gift giving is the most nerve wracking part of any holiday. We all know that feeling of suspense as you watch someone open a gift you’ve given them. Will they love it? Will they hate it? It can be impossible to know!
Whether you’re purchasing a gift for your parent, your sibling, your child, or your friend, picking out a gift can be extremely difficult. How do you find something that’s not just a great gift, but is also perfect for them?
If you’ve got an impending celebration and need a bit of guidance, we’re here to help. The answer is simple: customize it! There’s nothing more personal than a personalized gift. Here are a few of our favorites that they’re sure to love.
For Their Birthday
Birthdays are a big deal, and any gift you give should reflect that. Especially if they’re celebrating a milestone birthday, the gift you give should show how much you value them. Here are a few ideas for a gift that will make their day.
A Nameplate Necklace
The 90’s are back in a big way, and so are nameplate necklaces. Plus, their name will never go out of style! There are so many different nameplate necklace options to choose from, so you can pick the perfect style for them. Get that classic 90’s look by choosing a letter necklace in a lovely script. Or, opt for a stamped rectangular plate for a look that’s understated and cute. If they’re a little quirky, opt for jewelry charms that spell out their name, instead.
No matter which style you choose, opt for silver or gold plated. Not only will it show them you’re willing to splurge for them, but it will also ensure their gift lasts a lifetime.
An Engraved Wallet
If you want a gift that’s sure to please, opt for one they’ll be able to use everyday. A wallet is a great choice because it’s endlessly useful. It will be a constant reminder of your friendship, and one that’s sure to bring a smile to their face!
Choose a leather wallet in a style that works for them. It’s best to choose neutral colors like brown or black to make sure even the pickiest will love it. Next, have it engraved with their name or initials for that extra special touch. It’s the perfect gift!
For the Holidays
When it comes to the holidays, you get a free pass to give a gift that’s a bit less pricey. The holidays are notoriously expensive and they’re likely to have scaled their expectations down. We love a gift that’s sweet and practical for the holiday season. These are some of our favorites.
A Custom Photo Blanket
Who doesn’t love to cozy up during the holiday season? There’s nothing quite like drinking a mug of warm cider while curled up on the couch. Give the gift of comfort this holiday season with a soft and snuggly blanket!
Rather than gifting a generic plaid blanket, give a custom photo blanket that features a picture you’ve picked just for them. Fleece blankets with photos are a heartfelt gift that can be used all year round.
When it comes to choosing the photo for your blanket, there are a number of options to choose from. A favorite photo of the two of you can be a heartwarming gift; plus, they’ll never forget who it’s from! If they’re an animal lover, opt for a photo of their beloved pet instead. Or, choose a photo of the whole family to warm everyone’s hearts. There’s so many options to choose from; you simply can’t go wrong.
Stocking stuffers are a big deal. Take yours to the next level with custom socks! These are the goofiest stocking stuffer around. Gift them a pair of photo socks with their face on it—or go crazy and feature a photo of yourself! No matter which picture you choose, customized socks are sure to get a laugh from anyone who spots them.
