Giving personalized gifts is a new trend in gift giving, because they solve a difficult dilemma for many gift shoppers.
For example, what do you get the person who has everything? Or, what can you buy the person who is just hard to buy for, is very picky or doesn’t have many interests? Unfortunately, those are a few questions that plague millions of Christmas gift buyers every year and can make the holiday gift buying season very stressful.
Do you aimlessly wander the local malls and aisles of department stores in search of an inspirational moment that will lead to the perfect gift? What do you get for someone who has a lot of money, does not really need anything, rather eclectic or has expensive hobbies you cannot possibly afford to support? What about the person who you do not know all that well, but whose invitation has left you feeling obligated to come with a gift in hand?
Many a time in the past, you have probably given in to giving a gift card. And you have succumbed to the promise of ease in gift giving by simply purchasing a little piece of plastic that entitles its bearer to purchase anything they like for the gift card amount. Sure, when your card was opened you felt a pang of guilt and a moment of shame at your open capitulation and admission that you could not think of anything that the recipient of your gift card would have enjoyed. Fortunately, there is a way out of this dilemma!
Personalized Gifts Have Distinct Advantage
Personalized gifts are a new trend in gift giving and there are so many options from which to choose. With just a little effort you can find something for even the most difficult gift recipients on your gift list.
Personalized gifts have a very distinct and unique advantage. They combine the mundane with the extravagant.
For example, a towel is so ordinary, yet a towel with the recipient’s monogram or perhaps even name embroidered on it is a rare gift. Sure, not everyone will enjoy receiving a towel for his or her birthday, but let’s think about it a little further. What about baby gifts! Did you know that a towel, blanket, and bib make for an okay gift, but have the child’s name embroidered on these same items, and now you have an automatic keepsake!
Golf balls are another good example. For the avid golfer in your family or circle of friends, a box of the best golf balls is still just a box of golf balls. But with his or her name or initials, and perhaps an anniversary date or retirement date engraved on them, suddenly this humble gift becomes one of thoughtful contemplation and a well wish all of their own!
The possibilities of personalized gifts truly are endless, and many a gift giver has already recognized the potential of this avenue. It is no wonder that these gifts are becoming so popular whether it be for holiday gifts, birthday gifts or any other gift giving occasion.
