One of the best ways to show you care is by finding just the right gift for that important person in your life. Gifts don’t have to be expensive or elaborate to be exciting. A personalized gift takes it up a notch, allowing you to find the perfect gift while also showing them how much you know them.
If you’re ready, Birthdate Co. is here to give you some tips. We’ve got a list of our favorite custom gifts for any female-identifying person in your life. Need a personalized gift for her? We’ve got you. Here are five personalized gifts for her, and why we think they’re so great.
Idea #1: A Personalized Photo Album
Times are changing. With every year that passes, we get further away from the “old school” ways of doing things and more sucked into technology. When was the last time that you used a camera with film that needed to be developed? Or even a digital camera that you had to upload to your computer? The idea of having a physical photo to hold and look at is becoming more of an oddity in today’s society.
That’s why, if you’re looking for great personalized gifts for her, you should strongly consider getting a photo album.
Studies have shown that photography can actually help to cultivate a deeper sense of mindfulness and gratitude. When used correctly, it can help remind you to stop for a second and take in the world around you.
It can also help you recognize the important moments so that you can capture them for life. As long as you don’t experience all of life through the lens of a camera, the photos that you take can be precious, important family heirlooms for generations.
An excellent way to make the most of that, while still giving your giftee the personalized gift that she truly deserves, is to create a custom photo album. This really can look like anything you want it to, and take all of her likes and personal aesthetic tastes into account.
If you’re not the creative type, there are plenty of websites out there that can help walk you through the process. All you’ll have to do is upload the photos you want to feature and let them do the rest. It’s all of the excitement of a personalized photo album without having to make it yourself!
It’s a winner every time.
Idea #2: A Personalized Robe
Do you have a woman in your life that loves being cozy? Help her ramp up their comfort by getting a gift with her in mind.
To this end, a personalized robe is an excellent way of showing her how much you care. It’s perfect for use after the bath or just to stay warm when the weather starts to get colder out.
They’ll probably love it so much that they’ll put it on as soon as they get out of bed in the morning, or right after they get home from work in the evening! It’s the gift that keeps on giving all year round.
There are plenty of companies that offer monogrammed robes, so the decision really comes down to your giftee’s personal preferences. Consider their preferred fabrics (or if there are any that they just can’t touch) and favorite colors.
You’ll also want to subtly find out if they have a preference for length, as robes can be floor-length or shorter. The end goal is to create one of the most useful and memorable personalized gifts for her that she’s ever gotten. She’ll think of you every time she wears it!
If you want to make it an even more exciting gift, put the robe together with other self-care items that remind them to stop and take time for themselves. Luxury bath bombs, moisturizing lotions, nail polish, face masks—all of these things are perfect for a self-care gift basket. You can even throw in gift cards that she can use to get a massage or a facial.
Idea #3: Astrology-Based Gifts
One of our favorite types of personalized gifts for her is astrology-based gifts. Nothing says I love you and I want to know more about what makes you tick than getting them a gift that revolves around their specific zodiac sign. We have two ways that you can do that!
The first one is by buying them one of our Birthdate Candles. We’ve designed one for each day of the year, with that specific astrological sign in mind. Every candle was created with a custom scent meant to match the inner spirit of someone born on that day.
The outside of the candle has a wealth of information, including numerology and tarot-based insight. That way, once the candle is burned down (which will take around 80 hours), they’ll have that insight for years to come.
The other personalized gift that we offer is our Birthdate Book. If you know your giftee’s time of birth, we’d be happy to create a custom horoscope book filled with 70 pages worth of unique, specific insight into who they are and where their life may take them.
We do the research for you and find out exactly where the planets, stars, moon, and sun were located at the precise moment that your giftee was born. From there, we do a detailed analysis of what each of them may mean.
Both of these options are a great way to make sure that they know just how important they are to you, and how much thought you put into giving them a personalized gift. You can even use that insight to learn more about what they are like on the inside so that you can relate to them on an even deeper level.
Whether they’re a Libra, an Aquarius, or any sign in between, you can’t lose.
Idea #4: A Personalized Recipe Book
If you have an extra sentimental woman in your life that you’re purchasing a gift for, consider creating a personalized recipe book for them. Whether they are an avid cook, just getting started, or somewhere in between, recipe books are always a great option.
However, when you go one step further and create a personalized recipe book for them, you can turn a thoughtful gift into a mind-blowing one. We all know how important it is to sit down with our loved ones and have a family dinner. In fact, so many family and personal memories can be traced back to memories we’ve made around a dinner table. Food is family, and vice versa.
Creating a personalized recipe book that is filled with family recipes is a great way to honor that connection, as well as your connection to the person you’re giving it to. This is an especially thoughtful gift for occasions like Christmas and Mother’s Day or Father’s Day but can be given all year round.
Collect as many recipes as you can, from appetizers to main courses to desserts and everything in between. You can even surprise them with a batch of cookies straight out of the book to go with it!
Idea #5: A Custom Pet Portrait
If the person you’re gifting is the type of woman who absolutely loves her pet, we’ve got another great personalized gift for her! While loving your pet is one thing, there are people that take that love and care to a whole other level.
To help honor that person, as well as the special, unbreakable bond that she has with her pet, consider having a custom pet portrait commissioned for her. These paintings truly are one of a kind and are created on-demand using a picture of the pet.
There are plenty of different companies out there who make these kinds of portraits, and all you’ll need to do is give them that picture and an idea of what kind of portrait you’re looking for.
The best part about custom pet portraits is the number of ways that they can be customized. You can choose to have their face painted on a classic renaissance portrait, a sport player, or a niche comic book character. The sky's the limit, and you really can create one of the most unique personalized gifts out there.
While these gifts are excellent for any occasion, they are also thoughtful gifts if your loved one has experienced a recent loss of their special pet. It’s a great way to pay your condolences in a way that takes their unique personality into account, too.
Personalized gifts for her? Look no further than our complete guide, full of ideas sure to please anyone on your list. Birthdate Co. prides itself on creating custom gifts that are as beautiful as they are insightful. You don’t have to settle for just any old gift off the shelf. Blow their minds with a gift that is just as unique as they are.
