Custom Gift Ideas for Friends and Family


Whilst you can go and buy a gift off the shelf for a dear friend and family member on their birthday, it means more when the gift shows there has been more personal thought given to its giving. A custom gift does this because it is one that can be modified or customized in a way that makes it unique for the receiver.

Custom Cards with Building Designs

Marisa Seguin produces custom illustrations of buildings and other visual items that can be depicted on a card and sent in the mail. She will need to be sent a picture of the cabin, favorite location or another residence to work from and then she can draw up something that will evoke this memory for the receiver of the card.

Executive Nod Chair

This is the Executive Nod Chair, in pink, for kids who want to be the boss. This version of the Nod chair is larger than the previous version and includes the own design by Michelle Romo. Each chair used removable covers that can easily be washed when a drink is accidentally spilled over it. The child’s name can be switched into the chair fabric (maximum of 12 characters) and the surrounding fabric is adjusted to make the name more readable.
