Now before we go any further, we must confess...
We believe personalised gifts are a superior choice, yes, we are biased but we have good reason to be so.

Let’s be honest, what will they remember in 10 years’ time?
A unique product with personal messages, memorable photos created especially for them and made with love or will they remember an empty box of chocolates, old pair of socks, or outdated iPod if you catch our drift….
Personalised gifts show you have gone out of your way to make it theirs alone, they show you care more.

Personalisation is rapidly growing and when it comes to Birthdays there are so many personalised gifts on offer. That old saying ‘it is the thought that counts’ stands true and is one of the most important factors behind a great gift that feels amazing to give and even better to receive.


To help you create the best personalised gifts for birthdays, our experts have come up with this bullet proof 5 star method.

1. Gift Considerations

A few things to consider when searching for perfect personalised birthday gifts are your relationship with the recipient.

  • How well do you know them?
    Are they family, your partner, a friend or a perhaps a work colleague.
  • What experiences have you shared with them?
    Do you know them inside out and have memorable photos from your adventures together to prove it? or have you only known them for a brief period. 
    If so, it’s time to get your inner detective, pull out your magnifying glass and turn to social media for some clues.
  • How old are they turning, is it a milestone age?
    16th, 18th, 21st, 30th, 40th 50th, 60th, 65th, 70th, 75th, 80th.
    (For some crazy reason after 60 milestone ages go up in 5s)
  • What are their interests and what do they like?
    You want to make sure you gift something they will treasure.
    For example; Using a memorable photo to create a personalised photo mug for a coffee lover versus gifting a personalised wine glass to someone that doesn’t drink.. you get our point here!
  • What emotions do you want them to feel when opening your gift?
    Should it be something funny, sentimental, romantic, or perhaps something thoughtful…


2. Something Exclusive And Special

A great gift has meaning and makes someone feel special in the best possible way. This is the beauty of personalisation, it makes this super easy to do. It shows you have put extra thought into creating exclusive personalised gifts just for them. Try to create something touching, something that reminds them of a beautiful memory or something relatable between you and them.

3. Avoid The Stereotype Gifts

In selecting the right gift, you must steer clear of the stereotypes. Generic mainstream gifts do not make the recipient feel special enough.
They show lack of thought and are just plain boring!
Make sure you remember this; focus on how you can deliver the gift to them and always try to be creative with your ideas. This plays a monumental part and will say a lot about your efforts.
