We all love to receive gifts and many with crafting skills love to create their own gifts for family and friends. There is nothing more personal that a specially created gift with its own meaning.
Personalised gifts are no longer the reserve of those with ability and tools to create them. Enquire among your friends and browse online to find specialised gift shops that provide a once off an individual order for that special occasion.
Let’s begin at birth for ideas for personalised gifts for all occasions and all life events.
Many maternity hospitals no ban flowers so consider a helium inflated, foil balloon with the name of the child and perhaps the mother or the date of birth.
A soft toy with a name, date of birth and image printed on a miniature T-Shirt. Baby bibs, towels, blankets, etc. with the baby’s name embroidered or printed are another option.
Birthday – Foil and latex balloons with the name are always a winner. Banners are great for older birthdays and engraved glasses for milestone years.
Sacramental/religious occasions such as Holy Communion / Confirmation, etc. can be marked with banners, balloons, customised icing sheets for the cake. Personalised invitations for these events are easily designed with the help of staff, adding photos to make it extra special if desired.
Father’s Day/Mother’s Day’s - Why not engrave a mug or a glass for the ‘Best Mom or Dad’ with a date.
Badges are a great idea for all occasions; just add a photo and a message.
Personalised placemats, mouse mats, coasters, bottle labels, bottle openers and moneyboxes are suited for any occasion even Christmas gifts.
You can find a whole range of custom printed sashes, badges, banners, balloons, t-shirts, etc for that upcoming hen-night/hen-party.
Luxury items such as embroidered towels and dressings are ideal for both wedding and hen night / party events.
Champagne flutes engraved with the couples names and date; are perfect wedding gifts. A customised unity candle with matching taper candles are ideal and welcomed by every couple.
All of the items listed above are perfectly suited for special occasions and anniversaries.
Acrylic cake toppers with your own message and engraved plaques are ideal for life achievements and retirement events.
As you can see from that long list, there’s a multitude of ways you can create a special gift regardless of whether you have the skills, the equipment or the time.
You can make someone feel very special with a personal gift regardless of budget, there is something in that list for every pocket.
Another factor to consider is presentation, even the most inexpensive item on the list can appear as a luxury item when nicely packaged with attention to detail - a little ribbon, a little tissue, some cellophane, a pretty gift box or gift bag.
At Celebrate It, you can buy personalised Irish gifts online for women, men and children or any special occasions. High end items such as balloon decoration for an event or a wedding requires a skilled balloon artist who can make the most of the space available through shape, colour, size and finish, use of organza, bows, and ribbon.
