Here at Noted in Style we like to keep our eyes peeled for anything new in the world of personalised gifts, and this year has seen a large number of retailers join the trend. The gifts on offer this Christmas take a step up in quality and integrate names, initials or messages into your chosen product, using branding methods similar to ours, to give it that extra special bespoke touch. No more will the fruitless search through the names on mugs for yours (spelt the right way) leave you disappointed at the end of the shopping trip.
We’re thrilled that the world has embraced the choice that personalised branding gives you and we have picked our top three choices to show you just how special a gift can become. We love each of these items as the product is beautifully made in itself and the personalisation is an integral part of the item, not simply a sticker or label added on. So why not ditch the Christmas cards this year and get straight to the point with one of these gift ideas:
1) See your name in lights.
Well, amongst them anyway. This year Selfridges have made it possible for you to have your loved ones names printed onto a range of eye catching Christmas ornaments. Say it in sparkle with a glitter covered bauble or consider a chocolatey Christmas favourite wrapped up in a glass bauble.With their name printed across it in an elegant frosted script, this makes a thoughtful festive gift which will re-appear every year to adorn the tree.
2) Message on a bottle.
Selected Boots Emporium stores will put your name on anything with a flat enough and large enough surface, but we’re going to highlight perfume because it’s probably already on your Christmas list and this will just make it extra special. If your intended recipient is anything like me, then they’ve probably built up quite a collection of them over the years so this gives you an opportunity to make yours stand out! With your choice from a sensational collection including Gucci Bamboo, Yves Saint Laurent Mon Paris and the new Si from Giorgio Armani, it sounds well worth the additional engraving cost of £3, and with your heartfelt words permanently etched into the glass it makes a very memorable gift.
3) Make a personal call.
If you feel like indulging this Christmas, check out HB London’s range of premium quality personalised items by designer Chloé Janina Priestman. For something truly unique and on-trend, take a look at their stunning phone cases. Not only are these probably some of the most beautiful phone cases around, you can get your (oops we mean the person you’re buying for…) initials foiled in gold onto their luxurious leather range. Bold, bespoke, beautiful – we love them!
So there you have it, our top three personalised gifts for 2016.
Don’t forget, personalisation on a product is not limited to one offs. If you’re holding an event and want a large number of products personalised for all attendees give us a call. For example, pick one of our engravable pens and we can put individual names on each one – at no more cost than a standard engraving. Or want all members of your team to have a lovely personalised Moleskine notebook – we can add your company logo and their own name to the cover – to help them feel a sense of belonging to the Company.
