Gift Guide: Personal Gifts to Engrave

Lulu Rose - April 15, 2019

The age-old phrase ‘it’s the thought that counts’ has been used so many times it has almost lost its meaning completely. It’s often used a joke, or a way to respond kindly to a gift that you don’t really like. Yet a small gift with lots of thought behind it is means so much more than something that cost lots of money or comes from a popular brand. That’s why personalised gifts are so amazing, especially when there are so many incredible online options.

            In particular, engraving gifts has been growing in popularity more and more. There is something elegant and classy about an engraving, something that suggests permanence. An engraving won’t rub off or fade over time, and as such is a gift with longevity, a gift that will make someone happy for years. Though engravings can be done on all sorts of items, such as plaques, tankards, or keychains, there is something special about a piece of jewellery. For men and women, jewellery is very personal, and often reflects your personality and sense of style. What better way to show someone you care about how well you know them than choosing a piece of jewellery and personalising it even further.

            Even then, what kind of jewellery? Necklaces, earrings, rings… the options seem endless. However, engraved bracelets seem to be a popular choice; perhaps because they don’t need any special requirements (like having your ears pierced), they easily can be gender neutral, and go with any style of clothing. Of course, it isn’t just about the type of bling you choose. The material, and the style are all key to selecting the perfect personalised gift. Often, the options are limited to silver, gold, and rose gold, though sometimes a leather or matt metal bracelet can really make a statement. Style-wise, there are so many different types of bracelet to choose from: classic link bracelet, or a chain, or even a composable style. They all have their benefits, and as such it’s important to consider all aspects before buying that special gift!

            Browsing online is a great way to find out what options are available. Research is the name of the game, especially when buying for someone special. There are so many great sites to compare options, though Nomination Italy is one of the up and coming favourites. It has a great variety of engraved bracelets to suit all your personalising needs, allowing you to capture a memory or a sentiment in something lasting.
