Personalised Gifts: Perfect For Mother's Day 2023


On the 14th of May this year, Mother’s Day is approaching. We believe right now, the question on everyone’s mind is “What should I get that is unique and meaningful?” 

This special day is widely celebrated around the world and according to a survey conducted by the National Retail Federation, 84% of respondents said they plan to celebrate Mother’s Day in some way and that consumers are planning to spend an average of $274.02 on their celebrations. 

Gifts like flowers, special meals, and greeting cards are considered the traditional or classic ways of celebrating Mother's Day, often referred to as the "tried and true" methods. However, for those consumers who prioritise customised gifts instead, what are some ways they can show their love and appreciation for their mothers in a distinctive manner?

What are some of the unique gifts that can be customised?

Home and living products:

Products like photo frames, mugs, and keychains are cost-effective and offer a high level of personalization. 

These gifts are ideal for adding a heartfelt touch to a mother's daily routine, especially when they are using them. Select a picture that features you and your mother and personalize it by imprinting it onto the products.


Customise a beautiful necklace or bracelet by engraving the name, initials, or a loving message. To make the gift even more special on this special occasion, consider pairing it with a customizable gift box.

Why should I allow product customisation?

With Mother’s Day being around the corner and how 47% of shoppers prioritise finding a gift that’s unique or different, you should leverage on this to increase your sales and conversion during this festive period.

A helpful tip to keep in mind is to establish clear terms and conditions, as well as return and refund policies, before offering product customization. This is essential in case of any conflicts or disputes that may arise from customers, as customized products are often unique and cannot be resold to other customers.
