Custom Gift Ideas for the Holidays

16th Jan 2017

In this new age of social media and smartphones, our interactions with others, even those we care about most, often come via highly impersonal cyberspace. Texting, emailing, Facebooking—these are all acceptable forms of communication with friends, employees and loved ones, but they cannot replace the thoughtfulness and significance that comes from old-fashioned human contact and connection in the material world.

A thoughtful, personal gift to a friend, co-worker or employee is an unmistakable sign of caring and effort and carries significance far greater than the dollar value of the gift. Here are some terrific and affordable custom gift ideas that will make it clear you care—and isn’t that what the holidays are all about?

                                                                                          Personalized Leather Gifts

When it comes to custom gift ideas, you cannot beat leather. Durable, luxurious and elegant, personalized leather gifts, tailored to a loved one or employee, say so much—and don’t need to be expensive. There are personalized leather gifts suitable for every holiday or occasion, including birthdays, Secret Santas, and employee appreciations.

Leather beverage holders keep drinks cool and hands warm. A practical, fun and inexpensive custom gift, perfect for secret Santas, gift bags or promotional giveaways, they can be imprinted with an image, logo or artwork of your choice. A leather checkbook cover can turn the mundane task of banking into an exercise in elegance, while a leather wine bag can keep the party going all throughout the holiday season.

So many commonplace items truly pop when done in leather: Desk clocks, plaques, picture frames, eyeglass cases, coasters and, of course, wallets—the options for personalized leather gifts are endless! Personalizing these adds a touch of warmth—and all are available in a wide selection of colors.

                                                                                   For Barbecue Enthusiasts

Barbecuing is so much more than throwing hamburger meat on a grill. These thoughtful  custom gift ideas for the barbeque enthusiasts in your life are a great way to show your appreciation for their hard work—and will even make their grilling a little easier.

Grab a Bamboo BBQ Gift Set , which contains all the stainless steel tools the pitmaster in your life needs to barbeque with the added special touch of a customizable case.

For Family and Valued Employees

Personalizing a gift with your own artwork or engraved thoughts says so much more than a generic wrapped present. Customizing a wallet, picture frame or bible cover shows that you went the extra mile and truly care. A  personalized gift creates a bond and a lasting positive impression.

Going the extra mile need not cost more money (many of the custom gift ideas shown here cost less when ordered in bulk), but it will absolutely pay extra dividends. A close family member, friend or valued employee will be touched by your effort to show your appreciation with a personal touch.
