There’s no more exciting time than when a baby is born. The experience transforms us. How can we mark such a special occasion? One way is with a personalised gift. They are the perfect memento to mark such a special moment in our lives. Naturally, a gift with their new name is perfect. They have just received a brand new name, so it’s a great way to celebrate. Whether it’s for a Christening or first birthday, these personalised gift ideas will help make the occasion special. But what should you personalise? There are so many cute, cuddly, and special gift ideas for babies that are better when personalised. Imagine a bib with their name on it, an engraved silver spoon, a poster made just for them, a photo set to hang in their room, or a toy that is uniquely their own. Unlike most gifts that babies and kids receive, a personalised present is sure to be kept for, and last a lifetime.

Dads deserve great gifts. But there are too many generic gifts for him out there. For example, we’ve all seen those #1 Dad mugs that kids give on Father's Day. But who are they fooling?! However… A mug that says John Smith is the #1 Dad in the World—now that has some credibility. Or what about a gift with a photo of his kids on it? That’s something every father appreciates. And don’t forget an engraved pocket knife or personalised photo set—they quickly become the feature of his man cave. Remember, it’s the little things that make the difference for him. Men always seem like they don’t care, but deep down, they do. They appreciate the thoughtfulness of a personalised gift more than anyone. He will love these personalised gifts.

It’s always difficult finding a gift for grandparents. Why? Because they’ve already had so many birthdays and Christmases! They’ve already received dozens of sweaters, hundreds of socks, and enough flowers to fill the MCG. So after so many presents, you’re going to have to make something special to surprise them. Luckily, that’s what personalised presents are perfect for. Your grandparents may have received a sweater, but they will never have received a sweater designed only for them. Grandparents may have used ten thousand coffee mugs, but how many of them had their name on them? Not many, if any. And remember, if you add a photo of their grandkids onto their present—you can guarantee that it will immediately become their new favourite gift. In short, while Grandparents may have received thousands of gifts in their lifetime, they have never received any as awesome as a personalised gift.

Think of all the myriad of ways that teachers personalise their lessons for their students. She
explains a concept using dinosaurs to engage Timmy who loves the prehistoric period. He stays back after class to make sure Amy understands why her piece of art is so special. She creates new games, exercises, and projects to make a ‘boring’ topic into something fascinating for her students. Since teachers make such an effort to personalise our schooling, we can make the effort to personalise their end-of-year gift. So forget an apple on their desk. These personalized gifts are the best way to say thank-you. In fact, we’ve graded every personalised gift as an A+.

Our best friends know everything about us. Every story, every secret. So there’s nobody on the planet better to give a personalised gift to. We know what our bestie will appreciate most. Not to mention, what will make them laugh the most. We often share our deepest desires and grandest dreams with our very best friends, so we’re the person who can create a personalised gift that matches what they really want. There’s no other person or store that can do that. Quite often our best friend is also our partner, and that only makes those personalised gifts more meaningful.

That’s a pretty awesome gift, right? There’s no doubt that practical gifts like toasters, salad bowls, and silverware are useful. But for a truly magical gift idea that measures up to the magnificence of a wedding day—you cannot beat a personalised wedding present.

How do you make your employees feel special? A bonus is a great start, but it lacks a personal touch. And for all the rhetoric about a serious and professional corporate culture, we all know that in reality companies are filled with real people who share real human relationships. A manager sincerely appreciates it when their staff goes the extra mile, whether it’s solving a complex problem or following through on a tough project. That’s when a personalised gift is ideal, it shows you appreciate what they did, why they did it, and who they are as a person. Our employees are important, so it’s critical we remind them—such as with one of these personalised gifts.
