As we grow older year by year, do you have the feeling that not only is it difficult to think what the other person would want for his or her birthday but also what you would like as your own birthday gift? Then it feels like most birthday gifts end up in the form of a meal or money packets.
With the pandemic around, birthday gifts got even harder and it would just be what Grab or Foodpanda could deliver to the recipient’s house and while all that is nice, birthday gifts lost their touch of personalisation and customisation.
If you ever felt that way, then well, fret not! We have the best list of unique birthday gifts that you can personalise and customise to make it memorable for your family’s or friends’ special occasion.
THE BEST 11 PERSONALISED BIRTHDAY GIFT IDEAS THAT THE BIRTHDAY PERSON WILL CHERISH
USB Of Songs & Memories
We’ll start it off simple. Get a USB, plug it in and dump all the good stuff in it. You can upload pictures, videos, a playlist of songs, notes and everything else into it. The best part? Your friend or family member can then use the extra space for their own documents. You can get a USB anywhere these days but we’ll recommend the SanDisk Cruzer Blade for its reliability and price.

A collapsible cup makes a perfect gift which the birthday person will definitely appreciate. First of all, it’s collapsible which means you can easily construct and deconstruct it anywhere at all. It also comes with a straw which is great for smoothies or cold drinks and it’s also heat resistant which makes it perfect for holding hot drinks too. The Everyday Men (which can also be given to women!) goes the extra mile and let’s you customise the cup by putting a name on it. This birthday gift will make sure nobody ever mixes up cups anymore with the birthday boy or girl.
We know that not everybody owns Airpods but if the birthday person uses it every day, then this is one stylish way to encase them. Dainty Co sells the Harper AirPods Case which is customisable with the initials of the receiver. This is a premium-looking case that is handcrafted with genuine calf leather in Mock Croc print alongside a strong polycarbonate frame to protect the AirPods. Now that’s what we call a classy way to keep your classy AirPods.
A BIRTHDAY GIFT THAT IS PERSONALLY PREPARED AND DELIVERED
A birthday gift is especially hard to think about especially in these times when you’re constantly contemplating whether you should go out of your house and be potentially exposed to dangers of the virus. At the same time, you’d think it’s worth it because you want to make your gifts as personal as possible to show your honest care towards the birthday person.
That’s why Holiday Tours & Travel takes care of all those problems for you from having the birthday gift available for online purchase as well as making it customisable with a personal message to delivering it straight to the birthday person with no trouble at all. We believe every birthday gift shouldn’t lose its touch of personalisation even in the current situation that we’re living in.
