Many people are just plain difficult to shop for. Their interests may be expensive, or they do not give any lists about things they would want for their birthday. One of the best ways around the conundrum of hard to shop for gift recipients is to get personalized birthday gifts.
Birthday gifts fall into categories based on the intended recipient. There are Her birthday gifts, His birthday gifts, Kids birthday gifts, First birthday gifts, and Teen birthday gifts. There are a ton of gift options within these categories, including albums, clothing, jewelry, and more.
Gifts for her are much easier to shop for than most other recipients. They can be accessories, albums and frames, bed and bath, coffee mugs, cookie jars, desk and office, jewelry, kitchen, art, bowls, glassware, and platters and trays.
For her, there are some popular gifts that are personalized. A bookmark with a tassel and her name inscribed in it can be a great gift for the avid reader. Women who love to be the hostess may like a wood tray that has their name or initials burned into the wood. This is a striking piece.
Getting her personalized crystal is a striking and beautiful gift. Wine glasses made of crystal can be personalized with her initials or monogrammed with her and her significant other’s initials. Jewelry boxes are also a popular gift choice for women, along with soft and comfortable bath robes with her name or initials monogrammed.
For kids, great presents can include albums and frames, backpacks and luggage, furniture, room decor, cups, plates, bowls, clocks, sports gifts, robes and towels, sweaters, toys and playthings, and wall decor.
For a first birthday, the gift is more for the parents and for kids to look back on when they are old enough to appreciate it. Presents include albums and frames, wall decor, cups, plates, bowls, furniture, nursery clocks, room decor, robes and towels, sweaters, toys, and wall letters.
There are many popular gifts for a first birthday. Babies can get a wood toy box with their name personalized on it in rainbow letters. Designs can also be added depending on if the baby is a boy or a girl. Instead of a wood toy box, a cloth or mesh toy hamper can be personalized with the baby’s name embroidered in thread.
A piggy bank with the baby’s name is another good gift. It can also be personalized with designs whether they are a boy or girl. An infant to toddler bath robe can be purchased for a boy or a girl. Hand painted rocking horses, chairs, stools, and rocking chairs can also be great keepsake gifts.
Guys can be the most difficult to shop for. Each guy has varied interests. Common gifts include barware and accessories, BBQ and outdoor gifts, grandfather gifts, jewelry and accessories, picture frames, poker sets, sports gifts, and travel and leisure gifts.
Arguably, teenagers are the most difficult to shop for since their age is difficult. Teenagers can get personalized photo albums that commemorate their sweet 16 or simply have their initial or name printed on the album so they can add their own pictures. Both boy and girl teenagers can get a personalized keepsake box for whatever their treasure are, from car keys to pocket knives and jewelry.
Bath robes and towels can be personalized for teenagers, perhaps as a subtle reminder to keep showering during their very hormonal age. A very cool gift is a large bean bag chair with a wide selection of fabrics that can be personalized. This will be a long term talking piece for the teenager and their friends.
