Personalization is everything these days. You can look high and low for the best addition to your home, or the best gift out there, but be sure to pull it off with a touch of customization for the person on the receiving end of the gift giving experience! The words “personalized” and “customized” are all the rage these days. With the mass-production systems today, many of us are looking for something that has a touch of uniqueness or the “tailored-to-fit” quality. Weddings, anniversaries, engagements, even milestone birthdays, and great achievements are most notably remembered with personalized gifts. Especially when you are buying for someone else, a personalized touch shows that you care like few other gifts can. At Wendell August, we strongly value the element of personalization in our products. While every product of ours is not personalized to each buyer, we do have a vast number of products that are open to be personalized. Of course, our goal is to get our products to reach those special moments or events in life. This week we are thinking especially of this "personalized" topic as we are launching three new products, all of which are decorative trays for the home that can be personalized for your loved ones. We have the Home Small Oval bowl, which is a personalized gift tray that is designed in a classic oval shape with a contemporary twist. This piece is perfect for the perfect housewarming gift for new home owners you know of, or maybe even for your own new home! Add your new address or the coordinates to the place you call home. The Home Oval bowl allows you to be creative with the many possibilities available for customizing this handcrafted piece. See below for a picture: Another product launching this week is the Love Story plate which is also a personalized item. The piece is a perfect gift for a new couple or a couple celebrating a milestone anniversary. The front center can be personalized with a special message to the couple that would be remembered forever. Creativity with what you would like on the tray is always encouraged. See below for a picture: And for the touch to your (or someone else’s) vanity that serves as the perfect spot to collect all the accessories you wear on a daily basis, let us introduce you to the Happily Ever After accessory tray, also launching this week. Our Happily Ever After accessory tray could be exactly the right heartfelt gift for the story book couple you have in mind. On the front, the tray reads “…and they lived happily ever after.” This piece can also be personalized with a lasting, special message to the couple. See below for a picture: Whether you are giving a gift from Wendell August or somewhere else, we encourage you to add a touch of personalization, if possible. Personalized pieces are much more likely to emotionally connect with the gift receiver, and serve as an artifact of the moment you shared with that loved one for many years to come. So there you have it! Don’t always go with the products that lack your own personal touch. Switch it up sometimes and add a piece of yourself into it!
