The Beauty Of Personalised gifts.

by | Jul 25, 2019 | Gift Guide, Inspiration

Gifts are an expression of love which holds an important part in making a recipient feel special and appreciated. If you are one of the people who love giving gifts as much as you enjoy receiving them, then you definitely know the struggle of finding the perfect and thoughtful gift for your loved one.

With that said, how many times have you experienced receiving generic gifts such as chocolates, teddy bears or books on any of your special occasions? If you think to yourself, “yeah that’s what I receive as a gift most of the time,” then your first reaction when you received the gift must be – “Aww that’s so sweet!” Or “OMG I love it!” with a  grinning face right!

But let’s get real, although you like the gift they gave you, don’t you sometimes wish they had put more thought on it? Well, that’s something you should think of as a gift-giver too, and maybe it’s time to consider personalised gifts. So Pixapals! In today’s blog, we hope to enlighten you about the beauty or benefits of giving personalised gifts such as photobookphoto pillowtumbler or any other relevant personalised products that would make a great gift for anyone!

Strengthen Personal Connection.

When it comes to gifting your loved one, a personalised gift will be the best choice to shine through the special bond you have with them. We all love being special to someone! So giving a personalised gift which has some tiny little things about them, photos or something that reinforces beautiful memories, will make the recipient feel that you’ve put some thought and care into your choices. This will ensure the connection and bond you have with them becomes even stronger.

Just imagine, you’ve just received a gift from your close friend and with full of excitement, you untie the ribbon, unwrap the gift to reveal a photo pillow with your favourite photo on it. How do you think you will feel? For sure you’ll have a thought like,“Wow, how nice of them to think about me, to love me enough to get such a thoughtful gift for me!” or “How sweet ! they really know me well. ” Don’t you think it’s an amazing feeling?

This is the kind of feelings that will make you more connected to the gift-giver, and this is what those who receive a gift from you should be feeling as well. So, as you can see, a personalised gift has a sentimental value that can make you be attached to someone and strengthen your personal connection to them.

A Perfect Gift for Any Occasion.

Every special day we celebrate with our loved ones, be it a birthday party, wedding event, graduation party, festival or any other occasions. It is incomplete without the joy of gifts. But have you ever been a little baffled of choosing a perfect gift according to an occasion? If ‘yes’ then chill out pals! That’s totally normal in choosing a gift for someone. By the way, why do you have to handle the pressure of picking up the best gifts for an occasion, when personalised gifts can be a perfect gift? (never thought about it before? never mind think about it now!)

As a matter of fact, of course! Considering an occasion to choose a gift is quite important because not all gifts are appropriate to be given to someone on certain occasions. For instance, giving a vacation souvenir as a gift during graduation, a self-help book during a wedding event or a strange showpiece item for festivals are indeed a terrible idea! And the receiver for sure not going to appreciate it either. The only response you’ll get from the gift receiver is a fake smile.

But giving personalised gifts such a photo pillow, tumblernotebookphoto puzzle or anything that you can add the recipient’s favourite photos, text or designs are perfectly suitable to be given on any occasion. This is because personalised gifts are something which is highly related to a person’s sentimental touch and about the genuine thought of giving something special. Therefore, when you have a personalised gift as an option, you don’t need to be worried about choosing a perfect gift for any occasions hereafter.

Best Way to Please Someone.

Anger, disagreements of opinions and fights are a very common thing in a relationship with our loved ones. Whether it involves a familyfriendship or romantic relationships, putting a full stop to end an unpleasant situation with  “sorry” is the best way to show that you value them in your life. But sometimes, saying sorry does feel awkward, hard and seems to be not enough to console someone. This is the moment when gift plays an important role in pleasing your loved one.

Let’s say, you’ve had a fight with someone really close and they don’t talk to you for one week, because they’re angry with you. How will you console them? Will, you just wait for them to approach you and end up singing “is it too late now to say sorry”, just like Justin Bieber? Well, that’s a really bad idea and you know that right! Instead, buy a meaningful gift that will help you to please them easily.

If you decide to buy chocolates, teddy bear or fresh flowers as a gift to please them, maybe they’ll be consoled. But just think of it, do those gifts express your feelings for them, how sorry you are or gives a special feel for them? Without a doubt, it will just be a generic gift that everyone receives and it won’t flatter them that easily. Giving a personalised gift, such as photo printspostersphoto mugs or photo pillow with an ability to add a sorry caption, photo or any text you wish you can easily flatter or please your loved one. It is not just because of the gift, but it is about the thought of getting something meaningful for them.

Gives a Sense of Ownership.

As a gift-giver, we all are used to focus too much on getting the recipient’s favourite or highly-desirable gifts to make them happy. But we, perhaps, weren’t all aware that the gift recipients expect to receive are something that is more meaningful and valuable while they own it just for themselves. In this case, giving a personalised gift to someone will ensure that they have a sense of ownership to the gift which eventually makes it really special for them.

If you’re a sentimental person and you love having a gift that you would like to enjoy one and all, then you definitely know the disappointment of people using the precious gift you received. For example, you’ve just got a beautiful wrap-around dress and you find your sister wearing it the next day, your friend hugging a teddy bear which you received as a gift from someone, a guest who visits your house is drinking with the mug that has been gifted to you. “Argh”! Isn’t that a little frustrating? As if it’s just one day gift and the other days it doesn’t belong to you anymore!

So with personalised gifts, such as photo mugphoto prints, photo key chains and some other personalised products, you will have a sense of belonging and a soul authority on it which will make you proud. In addition, the personalised gift which has your photo or text that has been imprinted on the gift to ensure that no one else would want to meddle with it.

Will be a Unique Gift.

Nothing feels better than receiving an unusual and unexpected gift on a birthday bash, graduation party or any other special occasions. Even though there are plenty of generic gifts that can make you feel happy receiving it, getting personalised gifts are far more impressive and make your gift, stand out in a crowd.

Okay, just “picture this”!, It is your sister’s birthday; you hit the mall with a hope to get a thoughtful gift, and inevitably walk out 4 hours later choosing a dress as a gift for your sister. Just when you are going back to give her the gift, you found that your grandma bought the same exact dress for her.“Aw”! what a disappointment and awkward moment it is. The surprises, joy sequel and the excitement that you had expected to create on their birthday turned out to be a total disappointment right! This is because generic gifts are something that can be purchased by anyone, anywhere and most importantly it doesn’t have any personal elements that can make someone feel so attached to it.

But if it’s the case that you’ve bought a personalised gift and used your creativity to add photos, designs, quotes or scrapbooks, on anything whether a mugposter or tumbler; can you imagine the happiness on your sister’s face when she opens the gift you gave her? She would feel special, as she received a unique gift that differs from everyone else. Also, by personalising a gift that you gave them, you can show the effort and time you took to create a perfect gift for them. 

Treasured Forever.

Gifts that make some of the nostalgic moments come flooding back are worth to be treasured forever. Whether you want to give it to your friendfamily or spouse, try giving a gift which will be remembered, adored and treasured forever. Come to think of it, isn’t it great to have something sentimental that reflect back your memories? If the answer is ‘yes’ (we’ll even take a ‘maybe’ at this point), then the personalised gift will be the best choice for gifting.

Giving a personalised gift which has the gift recipients’ initials, favourite quotes or their favourite photo with you, on something like tumblers or any other things will absolutely make them feel attached to the gift and help them to walk down memory lane every time they see it. Certainly, they’ll treasure it as the most precious thing they’ve ever received. Apart from that, receiving a personalised gift will also remind them of you every time they look at it.

Let us suppose you’ve received a photo pillow as a gift. The photo was imprinted with the best moment you had with your friend during a vacation and with a “best friend caption” on it. Don’t you think you’ll be immersed in a nostalgic sea? We’re sure it will remind you of at least one of the best moments during the vacation. It might be the beautiful sunshine you came across, fun with friends, the wind with a seaweed smell or something that makes you feel enjoy about the day.

The moments may have passed but you can still look back to the memory through the pillow/tumblers etc, doesn’t it sound great! Well, when someone had put their effort and time to give you such a nice gift can you just forget them? For sure you can’t because the pillow will surely remind you of them every time you look at it. Having some special elements that bring back your memories will obviously make you take care of your gift and treasure it forever.

Yes! that’s the beauty of personalised gifts, it would allow you to give some importance to the product ie some sentimental elements and personal touch to it. If you can feel great about receiving a personalised gift from someone, then being a gift-giver will also give you some joyful experience and satisfaction for giving the best things to someone you care. After all, you made them happy with your gift!


To wrap it all up, creating an extra special gifting experience with personalised gifts are an incredible, creative way to show someone how much they matter and what they mean to you.
