20 Sep Easy Customized Gifts To Give Your Loved Ones
Just in the last few weeks, the weather all over the country has started to take a turn for the colder, which means that the holidays are just around the corner. It’s never too early to start thinking about the holidays, and especially about holiday gifting. Handmade and customized gifts are often the ones that mean the most, which means that getting a headstart isn’t a bad idea! If you’re excited for the holidays in a few months, here are a few customizable gift ideas!
Screen Printed tote
The great thing about screen printing, is that it works with any textile. Which is why a tote is a perfect idea! It’s a functional gift to give someone you love, that they’ll use on a daily basis, but will be reminded of you constantly.
Who doesn’t need an extra throw pillow or two? A customized pillow doesn’t have to be something tacky or gaudy that they wouldn’t want to display. Unless they’d appreciate a photo of the two of you together on the front of their throw pillow, don’t feel obligated to go that route! Just a pillow cover that is handmade, that will match their home decor scheme, will let them know you are conscious of them, their decor needs and taste, and will be a gift that they cherish.
Dishes are functional and something everyone uses everyday. Mugs are a great way to show your goofy side, so don’t be afraid to slap an inside joke or goofy picture to the outside of a mug to show your affection. You could also decide to have a funny sentiment placed at the bottom inside of the mug, instead. This way, they see the message when they get to the bottom of their drink instead.
Think build a bear, but better and more personal. And more importantly, not grossly expensive. Get a generic stuffed animal and sew a few personalized patches onto it, or embroider your names, or a sentiment, onto it. There are so many ways to customize a stuffed animal to make it just a little bit more special. You can also put a pre-recorded message into it, and then give it to a child or partner, so they can hear your voice when you’re away.
