Unique Custom Engraving Ideas

ROSEWOOD FINISH 5 PIECE WINE SET WITH 2 GLASSESEngraving gives you the opportunity to make custom gifts that go above and beyond craft projects you can do yourself, and look incredibly classy doing so. Adding that extra element of personalization can make a huge difference in the sentiment behind a present. There are a ton of possibilities you can come up with, but here are a few ideas to provide some inspiration.


Design an ornament to remember something special every holiday season. Glass ornaments come in all shapes and sizes and you can get text or images engraved on them. Choose an image of a favorite pet, vehicle, or destination to put on an ornament, or pick out a quote from wedding vows. There is no limit to how special you can make this kind of gift. These could be given for a wedding, anniversary, baby gift, or for many other occasions.


Get someone a set of unique glasses that they can use all the time. You can choose any style depending on what they would use the most. Enhance regular drinking glasses for the whole family, or something for more special occasions such as wine, beer, or HI ball glasses. This could also be expanded to flasks, growlers, or leather drink holders. Have initials or a family crest engraved so that the items are incredibly unique, and it will add an elegant touch to any home bar.

Household Items

Other everyday items can be engraved as well. Some options are jewelry boxes, cutting boards, and office items. Design a sign for someone’s first home to welcome everyone through the door. Add a sentimental quote to a piece for jewelry so the recipient will always remember how special they are. Engraving is possible on many different surfaces and can be used to make any gift stand out. Even get engraving done on pet bowls and tags for your furry companions.
