Give The Perfect Personalized Present This Christmas

November 17, 2015 at 07:12 AM

Michigan Personalized Christmas Gifts

As the Christmas season comes into full swing, we are swept back into the holiday routine of decorating our homes, hanging socks by the chimney, and of course, giving presents to people we love. Everybody loves receiving gifts; and giving them can prove to be even more enjoyable! All you need is something that will perfectly capture your sentiments of gratitude and unique creativity that will make the gift stand out from the rest.

What makes a gift meaningful and timeless? Here are practical tips on choosing the perfect gift this season.

#1 – Try not to look for presents in the mall.

Everybody goes to the mall to shop for gifts, so why shouldn’t you? If you’re the type of person who is intent on giving special gifts that you can’t find anywhere else, then it’s easy to see why the mall is the least likely place you should be shopping in. Don’t run the risk of giving the exact same thing other people might pick up during their shopping spree. After all, where is the meaningfulness in that?

The best gifts are those that take effort to get or make. If getting a gift is as easy as picking something off a bargain shelf, then don’t count on your gift being displayed or treasured for the rest of the year.

#2 – Think of something unique about the person you are giving to.

There is no better way to show how much you love and appreciate a person than by giving them something that will let their individuality shine through. Show the people you care about that you know them well by picking out presents that no one else would think of getting. The extra minutes of thought will often go a long way. You’re also minimizing the chances of your gift getting re-gifted because it is too generic, plain, or useless.

#3 – Don’t forget to personalize.

Do you already have a gift in mind? Take it a step further by getting it personalized! Coffee mugs, beer flasks, cellphone or tablet cases, penholders and even USB drives can become items of endearment when customized with the person’s name. It can even be a line from a novel or a favorite song lyric—anything that will add sentiment and value to an otherwise replaceable object.

#4 – Give them something to celebrate.

You don’t always have to give gifts that can be used because one can have too many mugs, cups, key chains, gadget cases, and the list goes on. Sometimes, the best gifts are things that give you something to be happy about, like a personal award or plaque of appreciation. Give your sister something she can display the whole year round like a “Best Sister” trophy that only she can have.

Do you have a lot of old photographs that are just lying around in old albums or shoeboxes? Give them new life by sorting them out onto personalized photo panels made of aluminum, hardboard, glass or even wood. Is there a special place your loved one would like to look at everyday? Frame it and put it up where they can see it! Do you have an adorable photo of your loyal pet? Turn it into a customized poster, coaster, or even a personalized plate.
