Before we know it the holidays will be here. Retailers will be vying for our money. This year skip the chaos of Black Friday. Whether you are shopping for your grandchild, niece, nephew, friend or your own child consider a personalized gift. Not only will you save yourself the hassle of navigating a retail store during the busy holiday season but you will provide your loved one a gift they will love and cherish for years to come.
Think about the gifts you have given in the past. Does the child still enjoy them or were they a fad that has since passed? Many gifts that are advertised during the holiday season are enjoyed for a short period of time and then forgotten. This year attempt to select an item that will special for years.
Think back to the gifts you cherished as a child. Were they personally made for you? Maybe you still have a blanket someone knitted or a handmade book. With technology available today you have the opportunity to provide a special gift that doesn't require knowing how to knit. A personalized book will likely be saved by a child long past the time they can only read picture books.
Personalized puzzles, books, placemats, and wall art are all fun, memorable gifts. So many gifts for children require batteries these days. The toys do the playing while the child just presses a button. Kids grow and learn from toys that make them think or solve a problem not from toys that do all of the work for them. In addition, personalized placemats and wall art can provide kids an opportunity to recognize their name, study the letters, and learn about letter order.
Avoid the crowds and purchase a memorable, personalized gift for the children in your life this year. You will be glad you did!
