Special occasions offer you the opportunity to give something beautiful to your loved ones. What we generally end up giving are store-bought gifts which are too generalized or universal although they may be practical. When gifting something to our family and friends, giving practical gift matters, but so do our intentions. Giving thoughtful, personalized photo gifts are right on trend.
New Trends Emerging in Gift Giving
Personalization, such as monogramming a home decor item or apparel is an excellent idea to make someone feel special. Customizing home decor items is popular because of its practicality – decorating the space and also displaying favorite memories.
To make a more unique and exciting gift, you can choose a photo gift and add a custom message to it. There are many stores online that can help you customize your favorite photos on products such as t-shirts, mugs, custom framed prints, etc.
Why Choose Personalized Photo Gifts?
Photo gifts can bring joy celebrating your personal relationship with people and are appropriate tor any gender or age group. If you are still trying to decide why to buy customized rather than store-bought gifts, here are a few reasons to consider:
- Signify Your Relationship
Receiving any gift makes a person feel happy, especially if the gift is from someone close to their heart. But personalized photo gifts take it one step further by making the recipient realize your personal connection with them.
- Show Exclusivity
A custom gift showcases exclusiveness since it is personalized with love, lots of memories and care. Giving someone something that belongs to them specifically helps them believe in your authentic relationship with them.
- It’s the Thought That Counts
Since we live in a very fast-paced world today, we are more inclined toward gifting something easy to find online or in a nearby gift shop without putting in much effort. But such a gift doesn’t have the aura and the hint of your creativity, thoughtfulness and time that a personalized gift does. To melt the hearts of your loved ones, you have to put some thought into selecting a personalized gift.
Some Photo Gifts to Consider
Here are some of the best personalized items for you to consider:
- Canvas Prints
When you can’t quite express something in your words, then print it on canvas. A stretched canvas print showcasing your photo(s) with the recipient will definitely speak a thousand words to them. Also, personalized canvas prints are more original than framed pictures.
- Rolled Canvas
You may want to gift an unstretched, rolled canvas with your favorite photos printed on it. This can still be hung on the wall, but can also be put away easily.
- Photo Mugs
These are probably the most popular photo gifts, but they will surely bring a smile to the recipient’s face! You can either print a single photo or design a photo collage for them on the mug.
- Magic Photo Mugs
Another variant to photo mugs is magic photo mugs which one can literally take a person by surprise. Magic photo mugs look like ordinary mugs, but have a feature that reveals a photo only when hot liquid is poured in!
