6 Unique and Cost Effective Custom Printed Gift Ideas for All Occasions

When it’s time to give someone an extraordinary gift, it’s easy to agonize over how to find something that perfectly embodies both your love and respect for that person and their own unique personality. If you don’t want to settle for a generic gift or branded products, custom printing offers opportunities to transform your photographs into one-of-a-kind gifts that are loaded with personalized pizzazz.

Here are a few different ideas to give you a sense of what kind of unique gifts are possible with custom printing.

Custom-Made Keychains

If you’re looking to give someone a gift that helps them show off their love of family, advertise their personal brand, or carry around an artifact that makes them smile throughout the day, a photo printed keychain is a simple, inexpensive way to create something personal and portable. A custom-printed keychain provides a great conversation piece that helps that special someone introduce their unique flair to others and even find their keys more quickly when they’re hiding down the back of the couch or deep inside a purse or handbag.

Fun Photo Puzzles

Puzzles are fantastic gifts because they appeal to people of all ages and provide both a beautiful picture and hours of a fun, challenging, relaxing activity. When you give someone a custom-printed puzzle, though, you’re also sending them a highly personalized work of functional art that they can assemble and display proudly. You can create a puzzle from any sort of picture that special someone would appreciate: a landscape of somewhere memorable to them, a group photo of all the friends and family who adore them, or maybe even a visual joke that they have to put the puzzle together to see – the options are endless!

Rugged Metal Prints

If you’ve got a family member or friend who spends a lot of time in the garage, basement, or any other form of "man cave" or "she shed" a custom metal print is a great way to help them decorate and show off their personality and interests in a way that still feels suitably rugged and DIY. You can quickly turn that picture of them posing with their favorite car, proudest project, or closest family members into a printed aluminum panel that looks vibrant and tough. These metal prints are especially great gifts for people who already collect metal signage, such as gas station or soft drink memorabilia.

Custom Mouse Pads

For folks who spend their workdays sitting at a desk or like to relax after hours and surf the internet, a photo printed mouse pad brightens up that computer area and injects great personal flair. Help your friend or loved one show off with a picture of their favorite family get-together, sports memory, or adventure that took them far away from that desk. Photo mouse pads are the perfect blend of practicality and sentimentality, as every computer desk needs a mouse pad, and every soul trapped in the office needs a reminder of what they’re really working for.

One-of-a-kind Bookmarks

In this digital age, it’s easy to forget that millions of people still love reading print books and magazines. If you’ve got a reader in your life, a custom-printed bookmark gives them something they can use every day that’s made out of durable material and will last for decades of reading. They’ll finally be able to toss all those musty old paper ones they hoarded before their favorite book store closed! Bookmarks are an excellent opportunity to get fun or whimsical, so pictures of pets, kids, and quirky nature scenes all work great.

Totally Unique Tote Bags

Regardless of job or gender, everybody needs a really great bag from time to time. With custom printing, you can give someone their dream beach bag, teacher tote, diaper dispenser, sports sack, or whatever else they want to call it or use it for. Custom tote bags are one-of-a-kind accessories that help whoever you give one to show off a little bit of personality wherever they go while packing a ton of functionality.
