10 Unique Ways to Use Laser Engraving for Personalised Gifts

Did you know that early humans gave each other presents like animal teeth and uniquely shaped rocks to strengthen social connections and show their appreciation for others in their tribe? Quite a random fact, but this shows that the practice of giving gifts has existed since the start of human civilization. 

Today, we carefully choose and offer gifts to our loved ones on special occasions like Christmas, Easter, anniversaries, birthdays, or weddings. The gift we choose and the way we present it says a lot about our relationships and us. Personalised gift items generally strengthen our connection with our loved ones and give them something to remember us by.

Laser engraving has opened up many possibilities for personalised gifts. From mobile cases to glassware, any object can be customised with an engraved name, special date, or symbol. With so many options, you might struggle to find a gift that will leave a lasting impression on your loved ones.

No need to worry, though. We have done the legwork for you and compiled a list of unique laser engraved personalised gifts. 

1. Engraved Jewellery 

Jewellery is highly customisable. You can find or create amazing pieces representing a loved one’s style, personality, or colour preference. Add a personal touch to one of the special pieces of jewellery by having it engraved with a unique phrase, word, or date. Engraved custom pieces of jewellery will show your loved ones how much they mean to you. 

2. Personalised Wine Glasses

If you are looking for the perfect gift for a special someone who means a lot to you, you cannot go wrong with personalised wine glasses. The old-school version of the personalised wine glass was made of pottery, and bright stones and jewels were used to decorate it. Engraved wine glasses today may not have jewels, but you can personalise them with beautiful designs, names, or logos. Pair them with the recipient’s favourite wine, and you have the perfect gift. 


3. Custom Engraved Yeti Mugs 

Yeti mugs and cups are extremely popular as Christmas presents for all ages, family, and work colleagues. Considering getting these engraved with the initials of your loved one to make them more personnel. The quality of Yeti mugs and cups is exceptional, and engraving them for a personal touch will make them all the more special. 

4. Laser Engraved Keychain 

Keychains are a sweet gesture of affection for another person. With laser engraving, you can have a keychain customised according to your specifications. You can add a sweet saying or a meaningful date to make it more special. It will be an amazing gift for the person who holds the key to your heart, and they will cherish and remember the good times you have spent together every time they use their keys. 

5. Engraved Wood Cutting Board 

A custom wooden cutting board engraved with an awesome design could be the perfect gift for someone in the family who loves to cook. You can even add your favourite quote or poem on the board or include the recipient’s favourite dish. You have a lot of room for customisation since cutting boards are basically an open canvas. 

6. Wooden Charger Dock 

A wooden charger dock could be an elegant addition to any Apple or Android user’s desk or nightstand. It supports wireless charging and allows them to keep all their devices powered up in one place. You can have a wooden charger dock engraved with a custom logo, name, or recipient's initials. 

7. Engraved Liquor Bottle 

Get that special someone their favourite drink to boost their spirits, and make it special by engraving their name or a special message on it.

However, you can even gift it on its own if you are short on cash and don’t want to put a dent in your wallet.
