Personalised gifts are a popular choice for birthdays and holidays such as Father’s Day and Parent’s Day. We’ve talked about Why Personalised Gifts are great, but the process can feel daunting if you’re not used to planning and purchasing personalised gifts. If you ever feel that way, don’t worry, we’re here to help! Here’s the 4 most important tips to guide you along the way.
One of the easiest ways to turn a run-of-the-mill, everyday item into a classic and lovable gift is to combine it with a personal photograph. Studies show that the human brain can process images 60,000 times faster than texts. Furthermore, Images have the ability to convey emotions and expressions which makes them more personal to the recipient.
Some popular photo choices include selfies, family photos, photographs of pets, or favourite moments during a trip. If you know your recipient well enough, include a photograph of you guys having fun together or doing something memorable. Do remember to upload high quality images as we want your gift to appear as beautiful as possible.
What’s the occasion?
Giving the right gifts on the right occasion tells your recipient that you really care about them. Think about your recipient and the occasion, would they rather receive gifts with a sweet message on them or a wooden print with a thoughtful photograph? Here are some of our recommendations you can take into account when you’re choosing gifts:
Gift for Weddings: A beautiful handcrafted wooden print with the couple’s photograph.
Gift for Housewarming: A cushion with thoughtful messages or photographs.
Gift for birthdays: A personalised face sock with silly faces or texts.
Gift for holidays: A “Best Dad Ever” mug for your father on Father’s Day.
Gift for baby shower: Wooden prints with cute baby faces on them.
Creativity is human’s best gift. Mix texts and photographs together to create a truly unique gift for your recipient. Think of silly phrases or puns that only you and your recipient knows. Personalised messages are a timeless and beautiful representation of relationships for your loved ones.
One thing that people often forget when designing personalised gifts is the color used in the gifts. For instance, if your recipient has a distinctive color scheme in their living room you might want to make sure that the color of your gift mixes well with the setting. Go with a colour that compliments their living room, bedroom, or work setting.
