Gift giving is all about putting a smile on someone's face and the warm glow of satisfaction we all feel when a gift does the job it's intended to. There's not a better feeling in the world when you give the right gift, but often, unfortunately, our gifts do not get the response we hoped for and we miss out on that wonderful feeling of satisfaction. |
If that happens to you more often than you'd like, there's no need to despair; there is a way to choose the right gift almost every time - all you need to do is make your own design, depicting photos and words that you know are close to the recipient's heart. Do this and you will nearly always experience that warm glow of satisfaction we all get when we give the right gift!
Choosing the right gift becomes far easier when it is to be customized - for example, if you buy a basic blanket for someone you will get the customary smile, a thank you, but after that, there is a fair chance the blanket will end up in the back of a cupboard.
Alternatively, you could buy a customizable blanket and personalize it with a meaningful photo and perhaps a few carefully chosen words - how do you think a mother would react to a personalized blanket featuring a picture of her child, with the child's name, the date, the event etc. emblazoned on it?
The second example is the same actual gift as the first, the only difference is the personalized design you have put on it - the personalized blanket will be met with a really broad smile, a huge thank you and maybe some hugs and kisses - the chances of the personalized blanket ending up in the back of the cupboard are almost zero - the recipient is ecstatic and you, the gift giver, are assured of that warm feeling of satisfaction!
You see, when you make your own design and apply it to a customizable product, the product takes on a completely new demeanor; assuming you choose a suitable customization design, a personalized gift will always mean more to the recipient than one bought straight from the shop shelf - a custom personalized gift also expresses the thought and effort you have put into your gift giving - so it's always a win-win situation for both parties.
The guidelines for successful personalized gift giving
First and foremost, always be sure to choose a suitable base product. It doesn't matter how good your personalization is, if the underlying product is something the person doesn't need or want it will not do the job!
Secondly, once you have identified a suitable product, be sure to personalize it with the appropriate designs, designs that are meaningful to the intended recipient.
Get these two things right and your family and friends will soon give you the reputation of being a great gift giver!
