Custom Gift Ideas for Moms, Dads, and Grads

April 8, 2020

While the CDC may be recommending social distancing [thanks, Coronavirus], the calendar isn’t paying attention, and holidays aren’t changing their dates! I’m talking Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and Graduations. Whether we’re going to be celebrating them in person or taking advantage of technology to see one another, it’s still a time to celebrate those we love! Rather than going the traditional off-the-shelf route, we thought it’d be fun to share some of our favorite custom gifts, from places like Etsy, Shutterfly, and Minted! Personalized gifts add a little something extra, and this year, that’s something we could also use a bit of. So take a peek at a few of our favorite ideas for the moms, dads, and grads in your life, and remember, custom gifts take a little more time to produce, which is why we’re sharing these ideas sooner rather than later!

Gifts for Moms

Stacking Name Rings: Customize each ring with the kids’ names, hearts, and more, and then stack them tall!

Custom Calendar: Looking at the calendar has never brought such a smile to her face!

Custom Vintage Spoon Keychain These can be customized to say anything! This one says “A Thousand Yellow Daisies”

Custom House Portrait: Bring on the memories with a custom house portrait from an existing house, or a house that brings on some nostalgia, like the home your mom grew up in! This is also a great gift for dads!

Additional ideas for Mom:

Gifts for Dads

Family Picture Puzzle: Give family game night new life with your own family photo as the masterpiece!

Custom Playing Cards: Who is the real Ace of Spades? That’s you, dad. Love, your family on the backside of these cards.

Custom Name Beer Opener: Cheers, dad! We’ll never question whose beer opener it is again!

Desktop Canvas: Perfect for the office, nightstand, or wherever!

Desktop Plaque: A thinner version of the canvas print, we love this desktop plaque!

Additional ideas for Dad:

Gifts for Grads

Personalized Notepad [plus several additional options]: Send the grad off to their next stage with somewhere to write their goals, to-dos, and big ideas!

Clear Acrylic Name Keychain: Who doesn’t love a cute custom keychain?

Custom Quote Library Card: Have your library card created with whatever custom quote you’d like to have! Then frame it, stick it, or stand it somewhere!
