Custom Gifts

July 11, 2017


Whether you’re trying to find the perfect item for your bridesmaids & groomsmen, for the happy couple, or to give your future spouse, customized gifts are one of the hottest trends right now. Our friends over at BP Laser Engraving, a local custom gift creator, gave us some tips on a few of the wedding items that are hot right now.

  • More rustic style gifts for both men and women, think leather & wood materials.
  • For bridesmaids & groomsmen try personalizing beyond names, look to custom designs for each person based on hobbies or interests. The one size fits all gift for the groomsmen or bridesmaids seems to have gone by the wayside, the trend is for a different gift for each person, more specific to their taste. Custom hangers & wooden wine tags are also popular for bridesmaids.
  • Creative & practical wood & leather items- picture frames, wine tool kits, leather wrapped travel mugs, luggage tags, coaster sets, money clips, cutting boards, etc. Try customizing it with the couple’s monogram or wedding date!
  • Personal keepsake reminders- Message cards or wallet insert cards are becoming more popular. This can be a sweet gift with an engraved message, especially great for Father’s of the Bride & Grandpa’s too! And you can have an image engraved on the backside as well.

Another wonderful idea for your future spouse or as an anniversary gift is to have your vows or a sweet message engraved, either as an artwork piece, on a picture frame, or on a keepsake box.

They also mention to make sure to allow a little extra time when ordering custom items, with typical turnaround time being 1-3 days and roughly 2-3 days shipping. It’s definitely something to plan ahead and put thought into beforehand.
