Finding Christmas presents can be hard. Especially when you aren’t really sure of what it is you’re supposed to be looking for. But do you know what isn’t hard? Showing them you care.

If you really want to show someone how much they mean to you this Christmas, then you should get them something personal.


Custom engraving gift ideas for all the family

The best thing about getting a custom engraved gift for someone is that it isn’t just for Christmas. It’s forever. What’s more is that you can be as creative as you like – the opportunities are endless.

There are engraved gifts for men, women and even your home. They can remind you of a funny moment you once shared, an important occasion, or even highlight your favourite quality of theirs.

Here are 6 of the best custom engraving gift ideas that you should consider buying your loved ones this Christmas:

A gift for mum… A chopping board with your favourite recipe

The great thing about this gift is that it’s secretly a present for you… but don’t tell mum! A personalised chopping board is both handy and thoughtful, as it can help bring you both closer together. So if you have a favourite recipe that you both enjoy there’s always a friendly reminder waiting for her.

A gift for dad… A personalised tankard.

Christmas is time to be merry and take a load off – and if that means having one or two drinks then who are we to argue? Buy dad his very own personalised tankard this year and he will always have something to be thankful for. Better yet, you can even engrave his favourite brew on the side too.

A gift for your brother… His very own phone case

Keep calm and personalise your phone case. Whether he’s into football, superheroes or fancies himself as the next James Bond, there’s a laser engraved engraved phone case out there just waiting to be bought. Add your own personal message or even have his name engraved onto it so everyone knows who owns it.

A gift for your sister… Customised jewellery

There’s nothing more your sister likes than her jewellery, so why not go one further and make it something truly her own? Adding a custom engraving will make it a unique gift that she will love and cherish. It could be her name, her favourite band or even something to remind her of you.

A gift for the grandparents… A picture frame of all the family

Your family is important and that includes your grandparents too. Remind them how much they mean to you by getting a custom picture frame of all the family for them to enjoy. Add your own custom engraved message to add that something extra special.

A gift for yourself…  An extra-special pen

Because why not? It’s Christmas after all and you’ve been very good this year. Treat yourself to something special like a custom engraved pen, because you deserve it more than anyone! Put a little extra thought into your Christmas cards.
