What Makes a Gift Meaningful?

Meaningful gifts are gifts that are selected with serious, important, useful, or purposeful intent - meaning that the needs, desires, and aspirations of the recipient (gift-receiver) were carefully considered by the gift-giver. These are the gifts that mean the most. 

Any gift that you give should have meaning to it. The true questions should be: How do you make a gift meaningful? What are some of the qualities to consider when making a meaningful gift for a loved one? 

Read our list of top reasons you should choose a meaningful gift with customized messages this holiday season.

  • Thoughtful - You pay attention to them and things that matter to them. If your gift is thoughtful, it will make you feel great, too.  That “helper’s high” of the powerful happiness chemical, oxytocin, will leave you buzzing in the right way.
  • Make the Recipient Feel Loved -  Honor them in a way that shows you care.  When you formalize your love in a printed book and include your own custom messages, it makes the recipient feel loved in a way that is tangible and meaningful.
  • Customized and Unique - Make a message that is customized to fit the gift you are creating. Custom and unique gifts are always more meaningful than a standard purchase from your local department store.
  • Surprising - A surprising gift can be a way to make your gift meaningful. Shock and awe leaves a lasting impression for all. If this is your first time making a custom gift, Keepster is the best way to start.  We’ve worked on the ultimate process to optimize the ease of creating a personalized book from your messages and photos and we offer multiple customization options. 
  • Inside Joke - If you have a legendary, special inside joke or two, those can be the most meaningful messages to turn into a custom gift.  Pull from moments that you’ve had together that made you chuckle, or where you “really had to be there.”  Help make them smile or smirk every time they see their personalized reminder of fun times.
  • Strengthening Memories and Bonds - Sharing the moments between the two of you in a gift is one of the best things to keep relationships healthy and encourage ongoing communication. In an increasingly digital world, our communications with loved ones can drop off.  By sharing a custom book with photos and text messages memories, you encourage your loved one to keep that line of communication open and flowing by illustrating just how much their messages mean to you.
  • Keepsake from a Loved One - Life is short. That special, last text from a loved one is one of the most cherished keepsakes we can have. Help socialize the memories of treasured family, friends, and furry companions so you can share their special impact with people who want to multiply and magnify the glory of their light in this world. You can use your stored texts, chats, and photos in a meaningful way to create a custom storybook your loved ones will never forget.
