The Benefits of Custom Gifts Instead of Generic Store-Bought

The Holiday season is upon us, which means you probably have at least one person on your list to buy a gift for. Trying to find the perfect gift for someone, or suggest to others what to get you, can be overwhelming and may take a lot of time, which none of us have enough of right now! Instead of running to the store looking for a gift, this year consider purchasing or asking for custom gifts instead of generic store-bought items.

So what’s so special about custom gifts? I’m so glad you asked! Keep reading to learn a few reasons why you, or the people you are shopping for, will be so excited to get such a thoughtful gift.

They’re Unique

Sure, you can go to the store and buy a gift that has been mass-produced… Or you could purchase a one-of-a-kind custom gift that is made just for you, all while supporting a small business! Custom gifts are unique, and the recipient of the gift will be sure to love that you thought outside of the box and purchased something for them that was specifically created for them. Even small and low-budget items, like a custom ornament or cup, can mean so much more than a more expensive “big” gift.

What’s even better about custom gifts? When you buy a custom gift, you avoid the chance that the receiver already has it, or someone else is giving them the same thing. How awkward is that?! The receiver opens the gift box and is like “ohhhh, thaaaanks?” I know I haven’t been the only one to receive something I didn’t really want or already had! And I’m sure I’m not the only one that has seen that look on someone else’s face at a party! So stand out from the crowd the next time you need to buy a gift instead of buying a traditional gift from the store.

The Possibilities Are Endless

One of the great things about custom gifts is that there are so many options for what can be created. Since personalized gifts are for everyone, they can work for anyone you are shopping for, regardless of their interests, age, gender!

For example, if you have a sports lover, you can have a custom shirt, mug, or hat created for them featuring their favorite team. Likewise, if you have someone in a specific profession that they love, such as a nurse, firefighter, business owner, or teacher, you can get a custom gift made for them that relates to their profession. Have a friend that owns their own business? Entrepreneurs LOVE seeing their log on items! How about an ornament, wine glass, or coffee cup with their business logo?

The ideas are truly endless! First, take time to think of the people you are shopping for and the variety of interests they have. Then, use those interests to help you purchase a custom gift that they are sure to love! Make sure to reach out to Sarah (owner of Bella Rose Design) and she can help you tackle even the hardest gift!


Custom gifts are great gifts to give no matter the time of year or occasion. From Christmas to Birthdays, to Anniversaries, and Weddings, there are no limits to when you can give someone a personalized custom gift! Even the loss of someone special can be turned into a special memorial instead of sadness.

Personalized gifts also make wonderful keepsakes and can be treasured for years to come. Custom gifts tend to be highly valued over other gifts by the recipient because they know it was picked out and created just for them. Sarah can even turn handwriting into beautiful memorable pieces of art! Thoughtful and personalized gifts will be treasured forever and will evoke happy memories. Handmade gifts also tend to be very high quality which helps them last longer than some other gifts do. For instance, a custom coffee cup may be made with higher quality than one that has been mass-produced, meaning the custom design will last longer.

Choose a custom gift the next time you are shopping for yourself or others and become a part of a cherished item and maybe even something that is passed down in the family!
