Giving the gift of personalization is something some people are incredibly good at and something with which others of us struggle. Being that this week I am in crunch mode for the only local craft show I am doing this year, I'm going to take time to just give you some ideas from my portfolio of projects that have personalization. But, please keep in mind that the deadline to order anything personalized for Christmas deadlines is November 23rd! (That's this Saturday!)
While I have not updated the album in quite a while, I do have many many more projects that can be viewed inside this Facebook album called Portfolio of Wooden Signs and Wall Art.
I'm going to show you lots of personalized gifts that include names and dates. However, that is not the only way to show thought! So let's get started.
How about a round sign? These can be done in 15, 18 or 24-inches and OH MY GOODNESS, I have done so many of these!
Okay, so round isn't your thing? How about giving the gift of personalization with a planked sign?
Keep in mind that gifts of personalization do not have to actually have names and dates. While I (along with my team) do a ton of those, there are plenty of sayings that people love - they, too, make great personalized gifts! Bible verses, lyrics from songs, or even something like this Irish blessing can show that you put some serious thought into giving a gift that can last a lifetime.
Maybe a custom tray? They come in both round and planked, smaller and larger...
Round trays look great as a table centerpiece, on a coffee table, or even propped up in an easel. Set one on a guest bed for a welcoming feel! I've even done several that have served as a wedding "guest book."
Perhaps something simpler can be your gift of personalization this year - a single board can be a beautiful gift - framed or unframed!
I am in love with our newest items! These farmhouse shelf signs look great in an entry, mudroom, kitchen, laundry, bathroom...somebody stop me!
These make great housewarming or wedding gifts and, once again, they do not need to have a name to be considered a gift of personalization!
I could go on forever but I think I will close with our farmhouse clocks...oh, goodness I love these so much, too (insert bias)!
I hope that gives you some ideas for giving the gift of personalization this holiday season! And, if you'd prefer to create one of our kits yourself, you can learn how to create a white washed effect in last week's post or stain your background whatever color you'd like!
