5 reasons to buy personalized gifts

Have you ever considered shopping for personalized gifts but are worried they might be out of your price range, take too long to arrive, or simply be too complicated to order?

Well, what if I told you they don’t have to be ANY of those things and can actually offer more than you think!

Here are our top 5 reasons why you should be shopping for personalized items for all of your gift-giving needs!

  • They are Unique

Never worry about bringing the same gift as another guest to your next wedding, birthday or retirement party. When you arrive with a thoughtful, one-of-a-kind gift, you can guarantee it will stand out from the crowd. Sure beats a generalized department store item and you’ll be the gift giving guru of the friend group for every occasion from here on out! 

  • They are Meaningful, Memorable & Sometimes Emotional 

Not sure how to show your friend that you care and value your friendship through a gift? Simply adding that personalized touch highlights the extra time, effort and thought that went into this customized gift that they will cherish for years to come! Not to mention, the shared gifting experience is another way you guys will be making memories together. 

  • They are Conversation Starters

Not all personalized gifts can be displayed, but if they can, they will most likely catch eyes and start conversations. Imagine walking into your neighbors home and seeing a beautiful, personalized plaque with their family name hanging above the mantle. Now that would catch my attention! “Where did you get that?”, “Where can I get one?”, etc. Then here comes the fanfare, the giftee gets credit for the thoughtful gift idea while your neighbor gets to boast about her personalized home decor, win-win! 

  • They Connect People

The past couple of years have been hard to navigate to say the least, and getting together with friends and family has been equally as important yet challenging for most of us. Not being able to gather for a friend’s wedding, birthday or graduation can feel quite isolating. Especially being such major life milestones that deserve to be celebrated in style! The perfect solution is to send a personalized gift so they can feel like they have a little piece of you during this special time and joyous occasion in their life. 

  • You’re Helping Support Small Businesses

Customized gifts are personal and not mass-produced. They are all handmade by another person who cares just as much about the quality of it as you do! Most times personalized gifts are the product of someone’s art and creativity. Therefore, they are going to put care, love, and time into everything they create. Not to mention the quality of work, the use of locally sourced materials, and the finishing touches of a hand-written gift note and gift wrapping! Shop consciously knowing your money is funding small business owners rather than major corporations. 

Next time you’re in the market for a gift for a friend, family member or colleague consider shopping personalized!
