Personalized Gifts Allow You To Excel In Your Gift Giving Without Breaking The Bank!

April 20, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 124

The first thing you need to understand when it comes to gift giving is the best gifts are not necessarily the most expensive - it's all too easy to fall into the trap of thinking, "if I spend enough money it must be a good gift" - that's not true, so don't waste your money!

Let me start by asking you a question - how many pieces of expensive jewelry does your wife own that spend their time in her jewelry box and seldom see the light of day?

If you're like most of us the answer is - too many!!

It's the same thing for men, how many "spare" leather wallets do they own? How about gold cufflinks that never come out of the box?

These answers should prove to most people, beyond doubt, that expensive gifts are definitely not the best gifts!

Time to enter the world of personalized gifts

While most people are familiar with personalized gifts, the overwhelming majority seem to under estimate the value they carry when it comes to finding a present for somebody.

Let's take a look at a few personalized gift ideas so you can assess them for yourself….

For women

If you created a handbag mirror personalized with photos of her children do you think she would keep it in her handbag? My guess is that more than 90% of women would - proving that a simple personalized gift that costs less than $10 would get more use than a $1000 gold bracelet!

The explanation is simple - the handbag mirror immediately becomes a cherished item because of the pictures of her children - plus, the gift giver gets a huge thank you for putting so much thought and effort into the gift.

It's a win-win-win situation - the recipient loves the present - it's an item that will get used - the gift giver gets a ton of gratitude for a gift that is very affordable.

For men

Let's assume he is a golfer - if you created some golf ball markers personalized with a photo of his children, his dog, or even his golf club logo, do you think he would use them? Another gift idea that costs less than $10 - isn't that a better idea than a $70 wallet that will spend its time stuck in the back of his sock drawer?

There are so many products available that it's impossible to get into them all here, so what I'm going to do is provide a few examples of the more popular products.

One of the best gift ideas around at the moment, for either sex, is a personalized iPhone case. With many millions of Apple iPhone users out there you are sure to know someone that owns one. The thing about iPhones is they all look the same, so a phone case featuring a personal design or photo gives it its own identity and separates it from the masses - you can be pretty confident it will get used too!

Another nice gift idea is canvas art - it's easy to take a person's favorite digital photo and convert it to a piece of classy canvas art - they are sure to take pride from hanging it on the wall in their home or office.

Popular personalized gifts for the home include blankets, pillow cases, shower curtains, doormats, coasters and ornaments - they are all gifts that will either get used or displayed.

Other fun personalized gift ideas include things like playing cards and jigsaw puzzles - the whole family will get fun from playing with them.

Hopefully you get my drift - you can easily find a custom gift for anyone, regardless of age and gender.

Personalized photo gifts make great gift ideas for birthdays, anniversaries, Christenings, graduations, valentines, mother's day, father's day, the Christmas holidays or any other occasion.

Should you need a little help on some DIY design ideas, some of the more popular designs include photos of babies, children, parents, boyfriends, girlfriends, brothers, sisters, dogs, cats, birds, horses and other pets. Also popular are pictures of cars, boats, house's, sports teams, logos and hobby activities like golf, bowling & fishing. Another popular DIY design idea is scanning children's drawings into your computer and creating gifts that feature kid's art - you won't find a better gift idea than this for loving parents!
