While thinking of what gift to buy for a child in your life, you’ve probably asked yourself, what do kids even like? It’s hard to answer that question without generalizing; some kids love nothing more than getting dirty outside, others would rather sit inside and work on an project or pretend to be a chef. But if you’re not planning to take the kid on a trip to Disneyland or buy a truck full of ice cream, one thing all kids seem to love is stuff with their names on it. These personalized gifts for kids are so special because they feel like they were made just for them... and they were.
I still remember how exciting it was to get one of those books where I was the main character in an adventure story. It felt a little like magic. Never underestimate how awe-inspiring it can be for a kid to open up a gift and see their name on it (especially if they have an uncommon name). Whether it’s monogrammed luggage or a water bottle with their name written on it (so much cooler than Sharpie written in mom’s handwriting across the Hydro Flask), a name necklace or bracelet, or a custom blanket made just for them, these personalized gifts for kids will be a hit. And when the gift’s a hit, so are you. Win-win.
