Personalized Gifts: Why You Can’t Go Wrong

RedCityStateFamilySignWe can’t help it. We love a personalized gift. And also, people love when we give them a personalized gift. So it stands to reason, that between us and them, just about everyone appreciates a gift that has been made to represent or reflect them in some way.

Quick disclaimer regarding this post title: Yes, you CAN go wrong. Before you order a personalized gift, be sure you know the gift recipient’s correct size! If you can’t get their size, try to find a non-size-specific personalized gift. And if you’re buying something for a couple, be 100% certain that you know how to (correctly) spell both people’s names and/or last names.

Okay! Time to our 3 favorite customizable gifts (no sizes required!) that you can have engraved or personalized with names, initials, family names, dates, and more!

City & State Family SignPersonalized City & State Canvas Sign – This is a gift for the whole family, or maybe just mom and dad (the kids might not appreciate the lack of toys with this one.) Unlike a lot of the state signs out there, you can actually customize this with the city, including a marking on the graphic and the city written out under the family name. Sweet!

Customized NFL GlassesPersonalized NFL Engraved Pint Glasses – This one is mostly for the guys, but we aren’t discounting the rabid female football fans out there! These pint glasses pull double duty, with the gift recipient’s favorite NFL team logo on one side, and their personal initials on the other! We love the little sculpted football on the bottom of the glass, too!

Push Presents: The Latest Pregnancy Trend

Pregnant Woman with GiftMaybe we shouldn’t call it a ‘pregnancy’ trend. After all, Push Presents are all about the end of pregnancy, when the mom-to-be does the honorable task of pushing her little bundle of joy out into the world. Either way, push presents are definitely the latest trend in gift giving.

Push presents are gifts that expectant fathers give to their counterpart – the soon-to-pop mom – around the time of the baby’s birth. As the name suggests, push presents are intended to acknowledge the mother’s hard work during childbirth.

There is no hard-and-fast rule about when to actually give a push present. Dads can give push presents either a few days before the baby’s scheduled due date, upon arriving at the hospital, in the delivery room, or shortly after the birth of the baby.

Unlike most gifts that the expectant mother will receive while pregnant, a push present is meant to be something special just for her, not for the baby. Here are our favorite push present ideas:

Sterling Silver Mother & Child Locket. This heart-shaped locket features an engraved image of a mother and child. Perfectly appropriate, beautiful, and can hold a photo of the new baby.

Multi Crystal Tennis Bracelet. A sparkly, colorful bracelet that both mom and baby will adore.

Sterling Silver “Family Promises” Bracelet. The charms on this bracelet represent various aspects of life, love and faith.

Mother & Child Diamond Stud Earrings. These 14k yellow gold earrings are simple yet symbolic of the powerful bond between mother and child.

Sterling Silver Mother & Child Necklace. A slightly more modern version of the mother & child. This necklace also comes in a two-child version, for the couple that is welcoming their second child to the family.
