AD | I love buying gifts for people. I love it when someone’s birthday is coming up because I thoroughly enjoy spending time and effort finding the perfect gifts for them. We all know that it’s the thought that counts and intentional gifts are the way forward but sometimes you do want to buy someone some physical items and that’s fine too.

I always try to include a personalized gift when it’s a special occasion, like a birthday or Christmas. As well as something practical that they need or want, everyone deserves a little surprise of something nice and personalized gifts is the perfect way to do that.

Almost anything these days can be personalized, if you look for it. Jewellery, pet products, accessories, stationery, artwork, sports books and more. So there really is a personalized gift out there for everyone. Even those who have everything!

So if you have an occasion coming up that you’re going to be buying gifts for and whether you’re looking for gifts for daughter or a Christmas gift for your partner, here are some convincing reasons to buy a personalized gift for your loved one!

It’s completely unique

I love the idea that the gift I’m giving someone is unique to them and it’s HIGHLY unlikely they’ll ever bump into anyone with the same thing (unless they have the exact same name?)

It’s really special

Personalized gifts are always more special than anything you can go and buy in Boots. Personalized gifts really show that you care, love and understand the person and that you thought deeply of them when coming to buy their gift.

It supports small businesses

Most of the personalized items I’ve bought for people over the years have been from smaller businesses. The same goes for my boyfriend; he’s found a lot of people on Etsy who create personalized gifts which he has got me over the years (he’s very good at gift finding!)

With the economy as it is and especially after COVID with so many businesses having gone under, I think it’s so important to shop small where you can and support smaller businesses and shops. The wonderful business to introduce you to today which sells beautiful personalized jewellery is JoyAmo.

Joyamo Custom Name Necklaces and Jewellery is made up of two words ‘J oya’ which is Spanish for Jewel and ‘Amor’ which is Spanish for love. Their Infinity Cut Out Name Necklace with Birthstones is what’s pictured in this post and I absolutely LOVE this piece of personalized jewellery.

The necklace is available in Sterling Silver, 18CT Gold Plating or 18CT Rose Gold Plating. I am totally a rose gold kinda gal, so I had to go for that one. You can also choose your size from 35cm (child’s size) up to 55cm. The necklace can have two names and each name has it’s corresponding birthstone, based on that person’s date of birth.

I really love how my necklace turned out. It’s quite a big infinity pendant, so that’s definitely worth keeping in mind in case you were looking for something a little more dinky. But with the names, any smaller and it may have been unreadable.

Their selection of personalized products really is unmatchable. From necklaces, rings, bracelets and more there’s a piece for everyong, whatever type of jewellery they prefer!

It’s a gift that connects you

If you buy someone a blender for Christmas, let’s face it, anyone could have bought them that. That’s not to say blenders aren’t good gifts – they are! – but they’re not personal. A personalized gift will connect you and your loved one through that little item.

It’s worth the money

I think personalized gifts are always worth the money, based on all the reasons above. They’re extra special and unique and I think that is a good enough reason to pay the money for something that someone is going to cherish so much.

Over to you! Do you like personalized gifts? Do you like to receive or give them?

  1. Wow, these pieces are absolutely beautiful! I just love the fact you can personalise them as they always feel more special personalised. Thank you so much for sharing this brand with us lovely, I haven’t heard of them before but I’ll defiantly be checking them out! Xo

    Elle –

  2. It is nice to give and receive gifts that someone has put a lot of thought into. A personalized gift is almost always cherished over something else. Even tote bags with a person’s initials are appreciated over one without those initials. A locket with a name engraved on the back is suddenly an heirloom piece to pass down over the generations. It does make a difference! (The necklaces are beautiful with the gemstones!)

  3. My god this looks gorgeous! How adore and a the perfect gift. I may have to get this for my friend as a person gift for her getting married.

  4. I love buying gifts for other people as well! I like the process of finding out what people want and need.

    Personalised gifts are a great option; as you say, they are unique. I like the idea of someone looking at a personalised gift and thinking of the gift giver. One thing I love about Twitter is that I’ve discovered so many small businesses that usually go above and beyond your expectations.

    That is a stunning necklace! Thank you for sharing! 😊

  5. These are all so true, something about a personalized gift just means a little bit of extra thought has been put in – and I love that! 😆

  6. That is such a beautiful necklace! I would definitely get one and have my children’s names engraved! I absolutely love personalised gifts because I find them very thoughtful and shows that the giver spent time thinking about it. Thank you for sharing this, I’ve been looking for something like this.
