You’re searching for a birthday present for a close friend, only to be faced with an all-too-familiar dilemma... What should you get? Should you find something that aligns with their interests, something unique, or something useful?
Gift-giving can be challenging, but in a sea of generic gifts,personalised gifts stand out effortlessly. They are a unique way to show your appreciation for that special someone, and nothing else comes close to saying, “I put a lot of thought into this gift, and it's perfect just for you”.
If that thought alone doesn’t convince you, here are four reasons why personalised gifts make for top-tier presents.
1. Infuse a Personal Touch
Gifts are inherently personal. In fact, gifts are a kind of love language for many people, meaning they either feel loved when receiving gifts or show love to others through gift-giving. When you present someone with a gift, it expresses your thoughtfulness and how you had their joy and happiness in mind.
You and many others might have the notion that gifts have to be expensive and luxurious in order to be appreciated. The truth is far from that, because receiving a gift is all about the experience associated with it. In the words of Mother Teresa, “It's not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”
To that end, adding a personal touch by giving acustomised gift shows that you cared enough about the recipient to make the extra effort! More than just ordering something online, you put thought into how this gift would suit the person and that solidifies the meaning behind the gift.
2. A Gift For Any and All Occasions
A personalised gift tells a story while being ideal for any occasion. As human beings, we resonate most with gifts that come with some sort of narrative or history. We celebrate hallmark occasions because they remind us of some milestones in our lives.
Whether it’s birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries or even Father’s Day or Mother’s Day, you can never go wrong with a personalised gift. It doesn’t even have to be a major holiday to warrant a gift. Is someone celebrating the start of a new job? Consider giving a Book Slim ID Card Holder Lanyard to hold their new company ID or access card, perhaps delicately monogrammed with the words carpe diem as a reminder for them to make the most out of every day.
3. Perfect for Both Him & Her
In most cases, you wouldn’t give the same thing to your hubby and your mum. Therein lies the beauty of customised gifts — they are ideal gifts for him and her, regardless of age, gender or background. Say goodbye to the headache of scouring the whole of Singapore to find individual gifts suitable for men, women, or everything in between. Take an elegant leather wallet like Gnome & Bow’s Gulliver Slim Cash Card Holder Wallet (RFID Waxed Leather), inscribe it with the receiver’s name and voila —you’ve got the perfect present. Smaller customised leather goods like passport holders or pouches are also excellent gifts for individuals who love to stand out from the crowd.
4. Offer Inspiring & Motivational Words
Regardless of item, the epitome of personalisation is best emphasised by a meaningful quote or passage shared by you and the recipient. Inside jokes, words of inspiration or even an epithet serve as powerful motivation when days get tough. Ultimately, these gifts should stir feelings of love and appreciation every time the recipient sees it — signifying your affection for them and embodying the pinnacle of the gift-giving experience.
Transform a simple passport holder with the spirit of adventure by engraving it with a bold statement. Imagine the words “Your Adventurer’s Logbook” embossed in silver print across the cover. Doesn’t that just make you want to get on a plane and jet set to a faraway land?
