Personalizing any gift with names, initials, or your special message changes just another present into a lasting momento. Instead of spending more on gifts, why not select a gift they’ll really love and add engraving to make it more memorable?

Engraved gifts are automatically more unique. Your choice doesn’t have to be an expensive gift as long as it is carefully chosen. Engravable items range from inexpensive jewelry, business card holders and desk items to name brand watches, clocks, 18k Gold and Platinum jewelry, and a wide range of business and personal items.

Here are some key reasons that our favorite online store for engravable gifts is ExecutiveGiftShoppe.com:

  • Huge Selection – their engraved gifts are priced from under $20 to $1650 for solid 18K Gold jewelry. They have so many items that we’ve tried to give you an idea of what they have with the suggestions below. We’re sure we’ve missed some interesting items so browse for a while or plan on visiting several times. You may even be able to finish your entire holiday shopping list at this one online store!
  • Personalized Service – owner operated – small enough to give each order special attention
  • Free, Accurate Quality Engraving – many of their testimonials mention how pleased they were with the engraving
  • Fast Shipping – they often ship the same or next day even on engraved items! They send accurate updates on when items are shipped.
  • Last Minute Orders can be expedited – and they’re one business you can count on to deliver on time.
  • Site Search makes it easy to find items when you already have an idea what you want
  • Categories and Shop by Designer make it easier to browse when you don’t know what you want yet

Their site is easy to use even if you’re new to shopping online. Best of all, if you select multiple items they only charge one shipping price because all of their items ship from one location. (This is NOT true for many online stores that drop ship from multiple locations.)

Here is our plan for giving more gifts carefully chosen for more people while spending less this year than any other year:

  1. Make a list of everyone we want to gift including friends, family, co-workers, and people with whom we regularly do business.
  2. Add columns to the list for selected, purchased, and shipped.
  3. Write in gifts we’ve already chosen and check off the appropriate columns.
  4. Think about anyone on the list you would like to send a personal message. What do they like? What could the use? Keep reading below for some specific gift ideas.
  5. Browse the site using the ideas below to find the perfect gift for each person.
  6. Decide what to have engraved based on the amount of room on each gift. Don’t worry about selecting the correct font; they’ve already done it for you on many products and can assist you on others.
  7. Be sure to schedule plenty of time to get your gifts shipped by the 2008 Holiday Shipping Schedule.

GIFTS FOR BUSINESS OWNERS and EMPLOYEES:

  1. If anyone on your list is in business and sits at a desk, you might consider one of these business accessories – something useful they can remember you for every day.
  2. Who do you know that carries business cards? This may be the perfect inexpensive yet classy gift, ideal for personalization with their monogram, name, your personal message or possibly more than one. Executive Gift Shoppe has one of the largest selections of business card holders we’ve ever seen anywhere. They range from traditional and innovative designs in silver, gold, leather, colors (even pink!), plus Designer business card cases and even Swarovski crystal – that we’ve seen anywhere. Every person who carries business cards could use one. Some styles lend themselves to longer engraved messages. (Many under $20 starting at $10.95 up to over $200.)
  3. If you have a larger budget and prefer initials to longer messages and leather to metal, you can’t go wrong with the luxurious leather briefcases. (From about $150; mostly over $200.)
  4. Not only do they have leather laptop cases, but they have separate sections for men’s laptop cases, women’s laptop cases, and laptop backpacks. (From about $150.)

IDEAS FOR PEOPLE WHO TRAVEL:

  1. Coffee and Tea Travel packs with insulated stainless steel thermos bottles in totes, duffels, or travel packs. (While these don’t show engraving options you could ask if they could be.  They were a good idea for those who commute so we’ve included them here anyway.)
  2. Eliminate the time and stress of changing between time zones with an Atomic Radio Controlled Travel Alarm Clock that changes itself for you. They have a nice selection starting at only $24 with three Atomic Travel Alarm Clocks that can be engraved.
  3. While actually embossed rather than engraved, someone who travels will appreciate quality leather toiletry bags and travel grooming kits.
  4. Make the hassle of airport check-in easier with Passport Holders and Airline Ticket Holders.  ($27 and up)
