You Don't Need an Occasion to Surprise Your Loved Ones with Engraved Gifts

Posted by The Engraved Gifts Company on December 12th, 2014

In most cultures, gift giving is reserved for very special occasions. Birthdays for one, merit presents, especially when celebrating important milestones like a friend's 18th, 21st, 40th, or 50th birthday. Giving birthday cards is also a common tradition in addition to giving presents. Chocolate eggs are a common sight during Easter celebrations. They are either given out to children or hidden in places for them to find, in true Easter tradition.

Christmas celebrations also call for gift-giving, which helps spread holiday cheer. Households and offices often do 'Secret Santa' where everyone is assigned a person to buy a present for. Children also receive stockings-full of Christmas presents.

Traditional gift-giving is also observed during other special days like Mother's Day and Father's Day, where people usually buy flowers or a small gift to their mothers, grandmothers, fathers, and grand dads. Even losing a tooth merits a small present from the Tooth fairy when a child puts the fallen tooth under his or her pillow. Christenings also call for traditional presents like china or lace, although money for the baby's future is more commonly given these days instead of the traditional items.

House-warming gifts are also commonly given to celebrate a person's or a couple/family's new home. A plant, some flowers, or anything that will go nice with the home is a good choice for a house-warming gift. It is also customary to bring small presents when you are invited to visit someone's home. A dinner invitation in a friend's home calls for traditional gifts like a bottle of wine, some chocolates, or some flowers, but you can also bring something for the home, especially when staying for a longer period. To send a thank you card after your visit is also customary to show gratitude to your host.

Gift-giving during weddings have changed a lot over the years. Today, gift registries are widely used, helping both wedding attendees decide what they want to give the couple more easily. Gifts to the bride and groom's mother, the bridesmaids, and the ushers are also given at the wedding reception. Wedding anniversaries are also great times to buy presents for close friends and loved ones. Traditional items for each anniversary are often bought as gifts, although they are not always followed.

However, you don't always need an occasion to make someone feel special and present them with lovely gifts. Personalised engraved gifts are perfect for showing people how much you care for and appreciate them, even when during ordinary days.
