Parents would sew or write your name in indelible ink into your school uniforms and schoolbags, even your pencil cases and stationary got tagged too!
But personalised gifts are not just a label anymore; they have become ever increasingly popular gifts to give. This is because there is such a huge assortment of fabulous gifts and gadgets available that can be personalised. Plus it doesn't matter how big or small your pockets are, as there are gifts to suit all piggy banks, from key rings to car registration plates and beyond!
There are two types of personalised gifts. You can buy gifts that already have a name or occasion (for example) already printed or engraved onto them. Then there are those which you get to choose the wording of.
You can personalise pretty much anything these days, stationary, clothing, home ware, silverware, glassware, mobile phones and cars too. You can even have personal 2D and 3D photos and images laser etched inside crystal blocks!
Technology has made personalising gifts so much easier. You can have your own photos printed onto mugs, t-shirts, calendars, or made into a jigsaw or mousemat in no time at all. For anyone who loves their literature you can even personalise popular novels.
You can rename both the title on the cover of the book as well as the fictional characters inside, by substituting them with your chosen names! And instead of your parents writing your name in your pumps, you can now design your very own trainers - all at a few clicks of your imagination and a button!
So you see there are gifts that can be personalised to suit all ages and tastes. So why not take the opportunity to make your gifts wonderfully unique. Give a personalised gift and label it not just with a name, but with sentiment too!
