Personalised gift ideas for every occasion

By August 13, 2019News

To celebrate the big milestones in life, people often opt for a personalised keepsake. But customised items don’t always have to be linked with special occasions; if you’re looking to expand your business, a great strategy is to show your customers what they can do with everyday items, like phone cases, belts and passport covers. Here are some great personalised gift ideas for every occasion.

Wedding and Anniversary Gifts

Wedding gifts are a wonderful way to mark a special union. There’s lots of scope for unique and individual gifts bearing the initials of the bride and groom, or their new surname. Photograph albums made from leather or card will look amazing with a foil monogram. Don’t forget personalised paper gifts for a first anniversary and leather gifts for three years of marriage.

Moving into a new home can be a significant life moment, deserving of a special gift. Why not celebrate the occasion with a personalised leather keyring for their new house keys, or some special stationery printed with their new address?

A new baby in the family is a great cause for celebration. Many people choose to buy a gift that the newborn can enjoy later in life, such as a piece of jewellery inscribed with their initials or date of birth. Complete the package with a personalised box to put it in, and offer bespoke chocolate boxes for their parents to enjoy.

Milestone Birthdays

A “This is Your Life” style photo album is a great way to mark a milestone year, and it can be customised with a name, initials, date of birth or other details. Don’t forget the birthday card – hot foil cards look beautiful and can be personalised to include any text.

Valentine’s Day

Get romantic on Valentine’s Day with beautiful, luxury products designed to win hearts. Foil designs on cards, chocolate boxes, wine labels and photo frames add a real sense of luxury and care. Durable, personalised leather Valentine’s gifts will also stand the test of time.

Want to sell personalised gifts “just because”? These are a popular choice with a wide cross section of customers, and the good news is they’re not restricted to a particular season. For this reason, it’s good to offer a selection of personalised items all year round, to pick up the slack in quieter periods.

Phone cases, wallets and passport holders are all great candidates for personalisation with hot foil, because they’re important objects that people carry around a lot. But you don’t have to stop there! Why not branch out into a range of more unusual products, such as customised wellies, bags, belts and diaries?
