With Christmas behind you and New Years Eve soon to pass – its onto the next big holiday where choosing the perfect gift is a must and all the stores will be abuzz with Holiday Decor and specialty gift ideas to help you make the right decision.
Here at Ornaments And More.com we are preparing for this big day too. But we want to start off on the right note. We know your bank accounts are depleted and this Holiday won’t be as generous as Christmas was. So… we have some Personalized Valentine Gift Ideas that WON’T Hurt Your Wallet. …
Ready for this…
We all feel that extra sense of being loved when we receive a personalized gift from someone because the giver went through great lengths not only to pick the perfect gift for us, but also spent the time to choose the absolute best words to personalize our gift as well. To make them even more special, we know that personalized gifts are usually given a little extra care by the recipients too – so that many can and do remain in the family for years.
Some personalized gifts are even passed down from generation to generation (if they are in the family name).
Yet, even though they are part of a multi-billion dollar industry, personalized gifts still seem so rare in households across the globe today. Think about it? How many personalized gifts do you have at home (that you didn’t purchase yourself – and don’t include trophies)? Why are they so rare? Unfortunately – most personalized gifts are expensive; sometimes way too expensive to even contemplate.
In a bad economy, even the “better off” seem better off spending less. Gift giving at Valentines Day is no different. If you are on a tight budget and you have to choose your gifts a little more wisely – personalized gifts may take a back seat.; especially if you are going for some of the most common of such “rare gifts”.
Among your options for some of the better, more common personalized Valentines gifts you have:
- Handmade Gifts (such as sewn items with special messages on their labels (such as jackets, vests, quilts etc), knitted items (winter scarves, winter hats/toque’s), scrapbook albums, handmade cards, baked goods etc.). The materials or supplies for such items may be more affordable than buying such an item, finished from a big box department store – but the TIME investments involved with handmade gifts are still way up there. This is fine for the well prepared – and well-timed crafters, but as we all know Valentine’s Day is full of events and adventures that can take our time away. Even the best planners / romantics can be left with unfinished crafts and doing last minute Valentine’s shopping.
- Etched or Engraved Gifts (such as photo frames, plaques, door knockers, cutlery, glassware, glass ornaments etc). As stunning as these gifts can look among your home décor, etching and engraving gifts can run anyone’s bill up to hundreds of dollars per item. After all, you need to choose high quality materials so that your etch work or engraving won’t chip away and ruin the gift. There is no wiggle room here. No one wants to give a “cheap personalized gift” that will deteriorate over the years, nor does anyone want to receive one.
- Embroidered or Screen Printed Gifts (such as jersey’s, bath and hand towels, pillow cases, fabric calendars or other wall decor, table linens etc.) are always a nice gesture. BUT unfortunately they are not the most precious of personalized gifts to everyone. They don’t make a lot of sense on a day like this. Yet, embroidered gifts can fall under the $50 per gift range which is always nice. With some retailers you will be allotted a specific letter count with purchase and then every additional is $0.50 – $2.00/letter depending on quantity, size and color etc. A great option for a nice gift at the end of the day and that extra sense of love you want to pass along will be received regardless of the word count.
