5 Surprising Reasons Why a Personalized Gift Makes a Lasting Impression

In a day and age of getting anything you desire at the click of a button, have you ever stopped to think about how great of a feeling you get when you get something that was made just for you?  Even those advertising pieces that come in the mail from time to time, and happen to include personalized return address labels as your "free gift" can bring you a happy feeling.
So, why aren't we trying to make everyone feel great about the gifts we are giving?  Can't anyone walk into the store and grab an item from the registry?  The answer really is yes.  And, the reason more people don't give personalized items is usually the time it takes to order and receive them.  The second most common objection to gifting a personalized item is, well, the fact that they can be so personal.  How do you know the recipients taste or decor style?

We're going to give you some surprising reasons why you should go the extra mile and make the effort to give a personalized gift at the next wedding, baby shower, or event you attend.

  •  Most people don't take the time to get something personalized as a gift.  This is probably the single most important reason you should do it!  Especially for weddings, a personalized gift becomes an important keepsake for the bride and groom.
  • A personalized gift sends an invaluable message of love, respect and friendship.  Personalizing something for someone takes thought about the person.  This thought is obvious to the recipient from the moment they open the gift, and something they will remember every time they see the item.
  • Personalized gifts such as our personalized family wood sign (used for the header of the this post), is something that will be in the family forever.  It is a symbol of their special day, and something they will proudly put on display.
  • It doesn't have to be expensive.  Consider this, the average cost of a wedding gift from a friend is $70, while the average cost of a wedding gift from a family member is $129.  For comparison, our personalized signs start at $32!  That really goes to show that a personalized gift doesn't have to break the bank.
  • Weddings are becoming a form of expression for the bride and groom, with personalization of weddings at it's peak.  Many couples are creating their own cocktails, deserts, or special ceremonies that are representative of them.  This trend shows the attachment to personalized items, especially for weddings.  We want something that symbolizes who we are.

  • The next time you're in the market for a gift, we hope you'll consider giving a personalized keepsake.  Vital Bridal Keepsakes has many pre-made and custom designs to choose from.  For options and ordering information, check out our Etsy store!
