Tis the season! If you’re celebrating a holiday this month, we’re extending heartfelt and warm wishes to you and your loved ones. December holds many different holidays including Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanza. You can learn more about each of these in our 2022 holiday blog, and explore the traditions and significance of these festive occasions. 

Personalized Holiday Gift Giving

Holiday season = giving season, and this is where people struggle on what they should get for their friends and family… unless you’ve received a long list or PowerPoint presentation from your child who thinks you’re rich. 

But if you didn’t receive a list, you can’t go wrong with a personalized gift. Adding a personal touch to a gift makes the gift-giving experience memorable, as you’re perfectly crafting it just for the person. It’s unique, thoughtful, and heartfelt. It’s a great way to show someone they’re special, and that you care for them.

Here are some steps on how to select the perfect custom holiday gift -

Step 1: Take The Time To Understand The Gift Recipient 

Think about the person’s personality and interests. Try to remember conversations you’ve had with them where they may have hinted at something they liked. Take the time to reflect on this person and think of things that remind you of them.

Step 2: Identify The Occasion 

In the spirit of the holiday season, consider making the gift related to the celebration. You can theme the gift so they remember the time you gave it to them. 

Step 3: Reflect On Shared Memories 

Recall experiences you’ve shared with this person. Do you guys have inside jokes, or sentimental feelings to certain items? Have you had unforgettable experiences and adventures with this person? Is there something you love to do with them? 

Step 4: Explore Personalization Options 

There are so many ways you can personalize a gift! Whether it is adding their name, printing a saying that reminds you of them, monogramming their initials, adding a photograph to an item, adding a special symbol that represents them to something. The options are endless! 

Explore the many different options, and select the one you think they’d like the best! 

Step 5: Seek Inspiration

Sometimes we have a picture in our minds of exactly what we want, and sometimes we don’t. In both cases, it's good to do some research so you can see what’s out there, and be able to communicate your idea. Pinterest is a great platform to find inspiration, as well as other social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and Tik Tok.
