(BPT) – As much as your loved ones mean to you, gift-giving can be challenging. If you want to make an impact with your gifts, consider making an impression by customizing them. Personalized gifts speak volumes about the thought and care that went into choosing the gift.

Here are some ideas on how you can make a personal statement with your gifts.

Name it

You can put initials on just about anything today. Whether you want to give someone a frame, bathrobe, bag, linens or jewelry, chances are you can find a company online that will put your loved one’s name or initials on it. There are so many options, and if you find a local resource, monogramming could be completed in days.

Pictures speak a thousand words

Share special memories and life events with the people you care about with a one-of-a-kind photo present. Thanks to Kodak Moments, you can create a variety of meaningful gifts sure to bring a smile to their face.

It’s quick and easy to customize photo and décor panels that can be ready in one day. First, choose your favorite image or images on your phone. Then visit a Kodak Moments Kiosk or visit CVSphoto.com to create a variety of photo panels with one or more of your photos. Photo panels are suitable for display or hanging on a wall. Décor panels can even be customized with text that you choose, and you can order them in store or online for pickup that same day.

The Kodak Moments Kiosk workflow is so easy to use that your kids can create gifts for family members. Your child can choose photos to showcase favorite memories with Mom and Dad, or Grandma and Grandpa, to make into a fun — and unique — gift they are proud of and that the favorite people in their life will cherish.

Craft it

If you’re handy with any type of craft, whether it’s painting, woodworking, clay or knitting, most people love to receive a handmade gift. Even if it’s not perfect (or maybe because it’s not), a handmade item shows your time and effort in thinking about them and creating something special just for that person, with your own hands. From painted rocks to needlepoint, you can create something that reflects your individual style and interest.

A gift that keeps on giving

Subscription boxes are all the rage, mostly because they allow you to show not only that you “get” your special person, by understanding what they enjoy, but also that you want to surprise them month after month. Everything from consumables like coffee, tea and treats to books, household goods, beauty and self-care items can be found in subscription boxes online. Most services allow you to choose a limited subscription if preferred, such as three months, and you can customize what types of items your gift recipient will enjoy.

The best way to show your loved ones you care is to give them a gift that’s tailored just for them. Choosing a personalized gift will touch their heart, and they’ll remember your thoughtfulness for years to come.
