Whether it is someone's initials or a special message, personalized items are the perfect way to make any object one of a kind. Since they must be purchased ahead of time and specially ordered, rather than picked off of a store shelf, they show that the gift-giver put forth some extra thought and effort. Due to the uniqueness of the item, the recipient will easily remember both the present and the person who gave it to them. To make something identifiable as belonging to a specific individual, add their initials or name. To offer something whimsical and fun, imprint items with an icon of a favorite sport or symbol.
In addition to the pride and enjoyment of having customized accessories, adding a child's name to a lunch bag, backpack or pencil case is also practical. Children often misplace things or forget objects in the lunchroom or on the school bus. When this happens, the person who finds the personalized items will know the identity of the owner so that it can be returned. Adults will also benefit from embroidering their name or initials on their duffel bag or attaching a custom designed luggage tag to all of their suitcases. They will be able to quickly recognize their luggage in a busy airport or bus station terminal.
Personalized items, like a clear glass jar or ceramic jar, are a fun method of encouragement to save for a vacation. After the trip is over, display memorable photographs in an engraved picture frame or personalized photo album.
