Buying a special gift for a special someone can be difficult, especially if they’re the sort of person who already has exactly what they want. What could you possibly get for them that they’d value and which they don’t have already? Well, be assured that if you’re a close friend, then they’ll treasure whatever you buy them.
The fact that it has come from you means it’ll always have sentimental value. But why not add to this sentiment by personalising it too? You’ll find this opens up a whole range of gifts you can buy, and there are multiple benefits to personalising a gift…
It adds creativity and surprise
One thing’s for sure, if you’ve never given a personalised gift before, your loved one really won’t be expecting it! And they’ll adore it from the moment they see it. Straight away they’ll be thinking about the effort you’ve gone to, and all for them.
They’ll know this is a gift they’ll want to keep forever because it’s something no one else could have bought them and is unique between you and them.
You’ll also find that it’s a fun and creative present to buy. Which picture do you choose that most emphasise your friendship? What message could only come from you?
They can help build personal connections
A personalised gift can enhance your friendship because it shows the recipient how much you care, and it adds sentiment to your relationship.
Picking a gift that suits their character will only add to this, whether it’s an engraved jewellery box, a ukulele with your name carved into it, or a special locket with a photo of the two of you inside. It’s a gift that’s powerful enough to change the way they think of you from now on, and it could help create a bond that’s never broken.
They can signify special occasions
If you want to bring a loved one straight back to their 21st birthday, their wedding day or another significant moment in their life, then a personalised gift given to them on that day will do just that. It will be something they can always see to remind them of that special milestone, and they’ll relive the moment you gave it to them time and time again.
Think about something your friend loves – it might be music, jewellery, chocolate perhaps. They might have that very thing, but they won’t have one with that photo, that message, that injection of creativity which could only come from a friend like you.
