The art of gift giving; it really is a science. So many occasions, so many expectations, so little money in many, many cases today. How do we fulfill obligations without breaking the bank? It’s simple: keep it simple, get back to the basics. Very, extremely simple items can be spruced up and made impressive with a little something called personalization.
Personalized gifts can vary widely, can be appropriate for any gift, for any occasion. Personalized gifts are most definitely the way to go for any budget. A snapshot on your camera printed, framed and personalized are priceless and better yet can be done for less than $10. Think about the options for this particular gift: birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas and the list really goes on for that one. Baby gifts: bibs, burp cloths, blankets. Again, keeping it very simple but add baby’s name and voila! It’s a cherished simple gift and again can be accomplished at a modest price of less than $20. Buying for a teen? Think embroidered head band or personalized laptop sleeve. Buying for mom? Mother’s jewelry in so many forms, different price points appropriate for any budget…think do-it yourself, family project. You don’t have to be super crafty to get the job done right. Think of any occasion and the money saving gift answer can be found by way of a personalized gift.
So with Black Friday less than a month away, with shopping madness set to begin, take a deep breath and remember to just keep it simple. Come up with a list of who you need to buy for and ideas for each. Do a little research, a little digging. You don’t have to spend a fortune to bring smiles and warm memories.
