In a digital landscape pockmarked with stores and gift options, it can be overwhelming to find the perfect gift. Studies show that many people struggle with choosing the right gift, and two-thirds of gift givers rely on gift cards when they can’t find the right gift. Narrowing in on an optimal purchase can be increasingly difficult depending on the holiday. Birthdays, anniversaries, reunions and other celebrations each present a unique challenge. How personal should the gift be? Do you really know the recipient well enough to purchase something related to a hobby?
Before you get more overwhelmed, take a breath! It doesn’t have to be that difficult. Consider a custom gift. Personalized or custom gifts have become increasingly popular, as people seek ways to connect with others beyond a material purchase. Custom or personalized gifts offer an opportunity to create something unique. Everyone likes to feel special! Thankfully, the days of relying on a custom gift kiosk in the mall are over. Online stores make it convenient to design a personalized gift for any occasion.
Looking for inspiration? Here are some gifts to consider for each occasion in your life!
Birthdays: Give them something cozy that will remind them of you every day!
Reunions: Whether it’s a class reunion or family reunion, custom apparel is always a hit!
Business or Corporate Gifts: Show your appreciation for their hard work with a gift they can use every day!

What can you customize? Consider adding the recipient’s name, school, business, or hobby. Write a personal message or maybe even a joke only the two of you share. The possibilities are as limitless as your imagination!
No matter the occasion or celebration, one thing remains constant: thoughtfulness is the best gift of all.
