Everybody likes gifts, including people who say they don’t. Nevertheless, a gift means different things to different people. Many believe that a true gift is one that has something unique to it; something which separates that particular item from the rest. In other words, whether you are gifting a new pair of earrings to your wife or buying a bottle of single malt for your husband’s birthday, the gift needs to have a touch of personalization to it that reminds your husband of the celebration and love it represents.
To help you seem more romantic than you usually are, here are 9 awesome personalization ideas to make your next gift to your husband seem that much more special.
Put a Message on It
Everything from jewelry to watches can be customized with names, messages, initials and so on. The most romantic way to put letters on your special gift would be by engraving a message that means something only to you and your partner. You can take the route of putting names, initials and the generic “I love you” messages of course, but it never hurts to be a bit creative if you can, because that’s what really sets it apart from every other piece of the same item that’s out there.
One of the best gifts for men is a shirt. It’s also the perfect gift where you can put a message on it. T-shirts with text prints and graphics to define your message are special.
Examples include a pair of couple shirts for you and your husband (with your names imprinted) and a Papa Bear shirt for men. Choose a soft, quality shirt fabric that your husband can use outdoors and indoors for a comfortable feel. Moreover, choose an absorbent, moisture-wicking shirt he’ll love to wear while woodworking in his workshop or repairing his motorcycle.
You can buy a special card and put your message on it, alongside your photo as a couple. While this practice is traditional, it’s good to receive one once in a while, especially during this digitally-crowded era. Other cool gifts where you can imprint or engrave a message include mugs, compendiums, bags, car keychains, and more.
Whatever gift item you prefer, ensure you choose quality materials for longevity. Make your message short and sweet and strike a balance between aesthetic messaging elements and functionality. In addition, you can personalize your gift with the help of local print shops or retail custom gift suppliers in your area or online. If you order online, do it early to make it on time.
Gift Coordinates Jewelry
Coordinates jewelry refers to bracelets, rings, necklaces and pendants that carry the latitudinal and longitudinal coordinates of a place that’s special for the couple. The coordinates could be of the place where you met for the first time or where you had your honeymoon, or just about any place that means something to both of you, or at least has special significance to the person you are gifting the jewelry to. We’d recommend checking out this collection from Sincerely Silver which features some beautiful pieces of coordinates jewelry and choose a piece that perfectly captures the occasion you have in mind.
The Astrological Connection
Whether you believe in astrology or not, it can make for fabulous memorabilia nonetheless. Jewelry that’s customized to resemble the constellations of your husband’s birth or an engraving of the person’s zodiac sign behind that Rolex could be a great way to customize any present. Just make sure that the end result looks beautiful and the design isn’t something generic off the internet.
The Number Game
Numbers on special gifts can be implemented in multiple ways and it’s actually a great idea to consider a bit of numerology too while you are at it. The numbers themselves can be in any language of your choice or even the
Birthstones for Luck and Prosperity
It is believed that birthstones specific to a person’s birthday, birth year and zodiac sign can help them overcome problems and obstacles in their lives. As mentioned earlier, whether you believe in astrology or not, this would still make for a special gift because birthstones like blue sapphires, rubies and emeralds can be absolutely beautiful to look at. Beware though,

Tattoo His/her Name?
If you have heard that tattooing your partner’s name is a bad idea for more reasons than one, then you have heard right! And yet, there’s nothing that matches the feeling of seeing your own name tattooed on the body of your lover. Consider it as one of the great guilty pleasures in romance, but here are a few things to be aware of if you are really planning to gift your lover the special gift of well… yourself!
- Do not tattoo your lover’s name if you aren’t married or are unsure about the relationship’s future.
- Keep the tattoo small and beautiful, because you might need to remove it in the worst-case scenario.
- The tattoo doesn’t have to be his/her name; it can be something less obvious and more personal too.
Make Something for Them
Not all of us are creative enough to actually make something that can be given to our husband as a romantic, special gift, but just in case you do have the talent and the expertise, very few things can be more flattering than getting a present that has been handmade only for that person by his/her own lover. It doesn’t have to be a masterpiece, as long as it’s made by you, because that’s the main gift here!
You can’t go wrong with any of these nine awesome gift ideas, but also feel free to mix a few of them together if you want to. After all, it’s all about personalization, so it makes all the more sense if you can conjure up something even better by combining a few of these together.
