When should I buy a personalised gift?
Honestly, any time is a brilliant time to buy someone a personalised gift, but here are a few ideas:
- Newborn babies deserve some spoiling so a personalised gift is always a really thoughtful gesture upon meeting them or hearing of their arrival. Just double-check the spelling is correct before ordering, baby names can be tricky!
- If your pregnant friends have already publicly announced their chosen name for their baby, personalised gifts are perfect for baby showers.
- A personalised gift is also perfect for celebrating a naming day, a christening or a baptism and depending on the gift is a keepsake they can keep and cherish forever.
- Not strictly for babies, personalised gifts make super sweet gifts for toddlers and older kids too. First birthdays or a first Christmas are also brilliant opportunities for a sensational personalised gift.
