If you spend your Saturday mornings trawling garage sales, flea markets and second hand stores, you know you will always find at least one personalized gift which leads you to the thought, ‘Why buy a personalized gift when only one person can use it?’ That’s exactly why you should buy and engraved gift. Everyone has important events in their life and they need to be marked with something that has a personal touch, and will bring back memories of that wonderful event. Traditionally you buy an engraved gift for a wedding, graduation or christening, and they do remain a treasured possession as you may find personalized gifts, but never find engraved gifts in a second hand store. If anywhere, you find them in the treasured china cabinet, along with the engraved items passed down from your grandparents.
Engraved gifts are a thoughtful present that shows the person you give them to that they are important and that you care. Engraved favors at a wedding leave a memento for each guest to look back and remember you, an engraved retirement gift shows how valued and well missed the colleague would be, and an anniversary gift with a message to your sweetheart expresses more than just words. There are so many occasions you can give an engraved gift, and so many gifts that can be engraved that the choice is unmatchable. Engraving also turns an ordinary present into something special that will be admired and treasured for a life time.
Most people think that engraving a gift is very expensive, but the reverse seems to be true. Indeed there are many expensive engraved gifts, but there is a good selection starting under $10. Sometimes the length of message has to be curtailed and different engravers charge varying rates. Shop around and see what the retailers charge for their services, some have the engraving charged already in the price, and others charge per line or letter. Either way you usually have enough letters to put a name, initials or short message. You do need to organize your gift if you want it engraved as it takes some time for the work to be done. But it’s worth the wait.
The internet gives you many ideas of what can be engraved and options of fonts, and ideas of where and how to have it engraved. You can choose almost any style from traditional to contemporary, but all are bursting with style and panache. There really is no need to be worried about giving engraved gifts as the time and trouble you put into thinking of the perfect message and choice of font and item, will ensure your gift is treasured for years to come.
