When it comes to gift giving, studies have shown that the majority of Americans prefer to receive heartfelt gifts rather than generic items purchased at big box stores. This holds true even though the store bought item may be more expensive.
Memories last a lifetime
Giving a gift that fits a loved one's personality leaves a lasting impression in their mind for years to come. Two-thirds (66%) of respondents confessed to remembering personalized gifts more fondly than gifts purchased with little to no thought.
Gifts from the heart
The study also revealed that 62% of Americans believe that holidays should be about creating and cherishing memories, not obsessing over extravagant or expensive gifts. They overwhelmingly prefer the sentimentality in something more intimate or personal.
Gifts and Graphics
When that happens, share the graphic with them on social media, or better yet, order it for them!
You can even specify that it's intended to be a gift.
If these gift graphics speak to your soul, don't hesitate to treat yourself.
Finding the right graphic on the right product is really simple because all of the products are categorized by design, rather than by product type.
And, if you want a specific gift, but don't see it listed as available, let us know and if possible we can add it for you.
4 Reasons to give personalized gifts
Shopping for the perfect gift for one person is stressful enough, but what if you have to shop for multiple people at one time? You don't want to just run into the store and grab a bunch of gift cards, you want to make sure whatever you buy will be treasured, or utilized at the very least.
We all know how awkward it is to be the recipient of a bad gift. Not to mention, it would be worse to become known as an "ugly sweater" gift giver. So, what do you do?
Customized, personalized, and unique gifts are the answer for several reasons:
Humans are social creatures, and strive to build bonds with those we care for. When you give a custom made or unique gift to a loved one, your personal connection shines in the spotlight. As a result, they are able to materialize the relationship you share.
Everyone wants to be heard and seen for who they are. Personalized gifts are the perfect way to let them know you have been listening to them. By giving a customized gift, you establish a deep connection that you both are able to celebrate for years.
Thinking of you
Remember when you were younger and adults used the phrase, “it's the thought that counts”? At the time you didn't understand what that meant, but as time went on, you realized that having a physical object to remind you of a time when you were on someone's mind was a treasure to hang on to for as long as you could.
If your loved one is an avid reader, a custom bookmark might be more fitting than a bottle of hand cream. Or, maybe they really love a certain beverage. A new coffee mug, or tumbler could be something they use daily, alternatively, reminding them of YOU every time they take a sip.
Perfect for almost any occasion
For many people, giving a personalized gift is less stressful than trying to find something special in a big store. You almost can't go wrong when you give a gift that's been tailor made to your specific loved one.
Whether it's for a birthday, Christmas, or just because, a customized item is the perfect gift because you know they'll appreciate the effort you put into finding just the right gift for them. It's less stressful knowing they'll love it rather than wondering if they'll even use it.
Online shopping is becoming more and more normalized every day, and holiday season shows a 50% increase in online shopping habits. Almost a third of those shoppers want the option to buy unique and customizable gifts.
Just imagine sitting on your couch and picking out gifts for all of your friends and family, while wearing pajamas. No waiting on people chatting in the aisles of the big box stores, no asking if it comes in a different size, color, or shape. You know exactly what you're getting without the hassle of rubbing elbows with everyone in town. What could be easier?
