Gifts for the Spring Season

The snow has melted, the sun is shining, the grass is growing...it must be springtime! And with the warmer weather comes a wide range of gift-giving occasions, from Mother’s and Father’s Day to graduations and weddings. Consumers will spend billions of dollars on these holidays and events, and now is your chance to capitalize on the growing popularity of personalized gifts to celebrate those special occasions.

Make Mother’s Day and Father’s Day Special

Two of the biggest holidays of the spring are Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, with American’s spending nearly $40 BILLION between them each year. That’s more than DOUBLE what consumers spend on Valentine’s Day. These two holidays are perfect for customized gifts, whether it’s a personalized tumbler or photo of the family.

Celebrate Graduations

After a unique year when traditional graduation ceremonies were modified or cancelled outright, it’s time to really celebrate graduates everywhere from both 2021 and 2022. Offering your customers personalized gifts is a great way to set yourself apart from traditional big-box retailers. From drinkware to leather-like notebooks and pen sets, there’s something for every graduate as they take the next step in their career.

Drinkware for Everyone

Whether it’s a personalized 11oz. mug for Dad, a trendy engraved tumbler for Mom, or a can insulator for a college grad, drinkware is one of the most popular gift items this spring. There are multiple options available for all forms of personalization technology, including sublimation, heat transfer, laser engraving, UV-LED printing, and vinyl.

For the dad who likes to fish, a great gift idea is to customize one of the new Simply Drinkware 10oz. Coffee Mugs. These powder-coated mugs can be personalized with laser engraving or UV-LED printing and come with a locking lid to prevent spills.

These tumblers are available in four trendy colors and come with a locking lid and reusable stainless-steel straw making them perfect for those on-the-go moments or while just relaxing around the pool.

Graduates will appreciate the personalized touch with our new 12oz Skinny Can Cooler.

Decorate and Commemorate

Home décor items not only spruce up a living space, but when a touch of personalization is added they turn into a treasured keepsake. The spring season and its associated holidays are a great time to offer your customers customized décor items for inside and outside the home.

The new White Keepsake Box is a perfect way to commemorate a graduation, First Communion, or wedding. The sublimatable insert offers outstanding image reproduction for full-color photos, logos, and names, making this a great customizable gift option to offer your customers. At nearly 3” deep, you can suggest your customers use this as a gift box for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day. It’s great for concert or sporting event tickets, jewelry, and so much more.

Offer graduates and their parents a unique memento of the special day with a customized photo frame. With options available for sublimation and heat transfer, UV-LED printing and engraving, there’s something for every customer and every budget. Personalize the frame with a graduation date, school name and colors, and allow your customers to add a photo from the day for a home décor item that will be proudly displayed for years to come.

Let your customers personalize their outdoor space as well with fun garden flags or yard stakes. Customize with sublimation with a family name, house number, or inspirational quote.
