I love my friend’s kids. They range in age from two up to ten. They have every toy imaginable. It is not that they are spoiled it is that there are four of them. Gifts at Christmas and birthdays are getting more and more challenging each year. Because they are so important to me I often go out of my way to let them know I took my time finding something they would enjoy. One way I do this is by purchasing personalized gifts for them.
One year my “niece”, I hope I am not the only one who calls my good friends kids niece and nephew, was really into glam. She loved having her hair done, getting manicures and pedicures, the whole nine yards. I went into the local craft store and bought a storage container and constructed a themed top just for her. I used paper, glue, glitter and stickers to create a design that I knew she would love and that would match her room so that when it was stored it still looked pretty.
Photo jewelry is also great as gifts for family and friends. Instead of buying your girlfriend a plain old bracelet, you can adorn it with pictures to add a special touch and make it one of a kind. You don’t have to spend much on it at all because you can make everything by hand. Some people are allergic to certain types of metal, so make sure you get them a piece that will not make them break out. If you already make your own jewelry and sell it, you can start adding photo attachments to them so your customers can customize their orders.
Personalized jewelry is also a great option. Giving someone a gift that has their initials or name on it (especially for a child) makes them feel like you genuinely put a lot of thought into their gift. Armenian gifts are special and especially considerate. Whether it is having your flower girl’s initials engraved on a heart pendant or her name embroidered on the satin handbag, your little friend will be delighted. You can even have her name engraved on a cuff bracelet or on a lovely jewelry box that she will treasure for years!
Another great idea will be to go for brother photo frames. You can buy a single window photo frame. Then find a childhood photo of you and your brother from the archive and get a printout of that. Attach that to brother photo frames. Write something on the reverse and wrap it up in a beautiful paper. Buy your brother’s favorite flower and present it to him. I am sure that will bound to make him happy. You can get multi window brother photo frames too. Get some pictures of your brother from childhood till present and attach them as you feel. You can include some of your photo or your parent’s photo to it too. Making him feel special will not be a big task you see.
How much to spend on a wedding gift also depends on where the wedding take place. If the wedding is in a nice hotel with elegant dinner and open bar, the guests usually spend more. If it is a more causal wedding, people usually spend less on gifts.
There is no right or wrong thing to have embroidered on a burp cloth. Embroidery shows the extra time and effort put into a gift which puts it into a class all of its own. Whether you choose to have funny sayings, names, animals, or days of the week, your embroidered burp cloths promise to be truly special and unique gifts.
