Festivals, birthdays, gatherings, no matter what the event is, gifts tend to sweeten things up! With the ever-increasing variety of choices out there in the market today, we are looking at an initial decision phase of whether we should be getting mass-targeted products or personalized gifts that mean something to the person receiving it.
Personally, I don’t mind receiving mass-targeted products such as iPads or Starbucks pre-paid cards as gifts. However, gifts like these do not mean much to me and probably will end up in a permanent slot within my cabinet for a long time to come.
Personalized gifts, on the other hand, have more sentimental value to me. It can be as simple as a wallet with my name etched onto it, or a photo frame with a signed picture of my idol, I tend to value these gifts much more compared to the mass-targeted counterparts.
Out of all the personalized gifts available in the market out there, I find personalized mugs to be the best one-gift-idea-fits-all you can get for your loved ones. It’s practical, it’s sweet, and your message can be totally unique. The best thing about it is you don’t have to break your own piggy bank just to get one for your best friend. I was looking around online for e-commerce stores that were selling these sort of gifts and I came across this lovely personalized mug with a message saying: “Singaporean Mum Only Because… Full-Time Multitasking Ninja is Not An Actual Job Title“. I immediately felt that my best friend will be more than delighted to receive this personalized gift from me.
There are quite a few more types of personalized gifts on this website that I found while researching online, like tote bags, tee shirts, posters, and more! The interface was really easy to use and I highly recommend checking out their stuff. Just type in “5amily.com”, hit enter and you are there.
At the end of the day, if it was a good friend, a family member, or a loved one, I personally believe that a personalized gift will outshine mass-targeted ones anytime hands down. What’s your own preference?
