Why should you give personalized gifts?
Every year when my birthday or Christmas rolls around, I get added for my dreaded wish list. Dreaded because I hate putting together a list of things that people can buy from with absolutely no thought involved.
Because honestly at the end of the day, I can buy all of those things (and often do) myself. I personally prefer gifts that are personalized, intentional, and have real thought behind them.
I’d prefer a thought out date (or something like this date night deck) to a gift card for me to go out. And I’d love to get a necklace personalized with my boys’ initials over a gift card to pick out my own.
For me, the best gifts are the ones with thought behind them because at the end of the day, I want to know that you were thinking about me when you picked out the gift, not just thinking you needed to cross me off your checklist. There’s a reason I’m giving my kiddo this monthly activity box.
I try to keep that in mind when I’m picking out gifts for my own family and friends. Let’s be honest, sometimes I end up getting a gift card or gift off a list because, well we all do at some point. But when I can, I try my best to make personalized gifts as much as possible.
