How do I make a gift more personal?

Making A Gift More Personal

It is no secret that most women like jewelry. It tends to be the standard choice for a gift for girlfriend, fiance or wife. But simply buying a new piece of jewelry every holiday or birthday may start to seem clichéd and impersonal. So how do you turn it into a more personalized gift?

Places like Things Remembered and Zales have coupons and discounts all the time for engraving. Put a thoughtful inscription on the gift you plan to give. A line from her favorite song or poem. An anecdote from your past. A special date to remember. It can be just about anything, depending on the person.

Try picking out a ring or necklace with her birthstone in it. It shows that you took the time to make the gift more specific for her. Or maybe you go an entirely different route. Here are some ideas for inscriptions or engraved gifts, both jewelry and non-jewelry.

  • Keepsake boxes
  • Clocks
