Personal Customizable Gifts

Some of the best, most memorable surprises are personal customizable gifts. Did you know? According to two decades of research from the National Restaurant Association, Mother’s Day is the top calendar day for dining, followed by Valentine’s Day and Father’s Day. If you really want to impress that special someone, here is a list of unique, personal customizable gifts that will stand above the rest. Remember: It’s the thought that counts.

Personalized Coasters

Two of the most popular types of customizable coasters are laser engraved or sublimated images. Have you ever wanted a picture of your family, pet, or vacation place on a coaster? Sublimation imprints a coloured photo or image directly into the coaster itself, while laser engraved coasters are perfect for patterns and text that are burned from wood and sealed with a varnish to protect from moisture. Sublimated coasters are flat while engraved wooden coasters have a 3-dimensional textured look.

Engraved Pens

A custom pen is one of the most personal and useful gifts that a person will use, reminding them of you. There are many different pens that you can have personalized. We recommend using a metal-based pen verses plastic as it gives a higher-quality aesthetic. Shiny is good.

Custom Cups & Mugs

We all know someone who can’t function without that first cup of coffee or tea. Customizing a cup or mug using sublimation ensures a long-lasting image. Sublimation embeds the photo or graphic into the surface itself, keeping it sharp wash after wash. Gift a mug that will remind them of you whenever they reach for it.

Pro Tip: If you’re not hand-washing, place the mug on the top rack of your dishwasher and as far away from the heating element as possible to preserve the image even longer.

Paper Gifts

Are you thinking of creating a custom Thank You card or wedding invitation? How about a one-of-a-kind box to hand out candy or chocolates? Lasering paper is one of the most elegant and visually stunning ways to have your gift stand out. Give a card or invitation that is personal and unique, something that would be remembered for its intricate details.

Engraved Wood Boards

Wood boards/charcuterie boards are one of the hottest trending gifts that wow an audience. Wood boards are a larger ticket item perfect as a wedding gift, anniversary gift, or house warming gift. These are often displayed with prominence or brought out on special occasions. We can engrave any pattern, text or shape that you want.
