Custom Gift Boxes for Any Occasion
With graduation season and Father’s Day just around the corner (and let’s assume you’ve already secured your custom Mother’s Day gift), it’s a good time to look into custom gift box ideas that will not only make a memorable presentation but also be a meaningful part of the gift itself. CustomMade artisans can create gift boxes for any occasion.
Grads and Dads
Grads and Dads alike might enjoy a good read in a custom decorative box that can also display and protect. Custom made boxes by Vicki L. Lee Bookbinding can be sized to fit an individual book and even include drawers or other additional compartments. The boxes can be created from cloth, paper, leather, or a combination of these materials. Get in touch with Vicki Lee and have her bring her expertise in bookbinding and conservation techniques and traditions to your gift box project.
How about a custom gift box designed for dear ol’ Dad’s favorite pastime? For the fly fishing enthusiast, McGuire Woodworking can create fly fishing boxes in small, medium, and large sizes from wood scraps reclaimed from his cabinetry workshop. Contact McGuire Scroggins and custom order these attractive and practical accessories.
Help Someone Make The Digital Leap
Know anyone who has recently made the great leap forward from the photo albums of yore to digital media? It’s hard to replace the momentousness of bringing out a carefully collected volume of precious photographs and passing it around a circle of visitors. A memory box by Yoder Furniture Design, however, can help mark retrieving discs filled with digitized photos as a special moment. Contact Richard Yoder and discuss adding photo images or other personalized designs to your custom box.
Year Round Occasions
Weddings and housewarmings are always in season. For groomsmen, a gift like this cigar box by Wooden-It-Be-Nice, made from maple, walnut, and cedar with a verdigris copper inlay and custom sized to include cigars and a lighter, would be an excellent choice. For the married couple, a display case for showcasing wedding memorabilia would be much appreciated. This handcrafted display case by DWF Gallery Hardwood Designs proudly displays an engraved wedding cake utensil set.
Small but striking, something that turns the mundane into the marvelous makes the perfect housewarming present. This utensil box by Bearkat Wood is made from black walnut, poplar, purpleheart, padauk, and ebony and will add some “Old World” charm to your friend’s kitchen counter. A stained glass tissue box cover and matching nite-light by Krysia Designs, together or separately, would be a thoughtful and gorgeous gift.
Get in touch with Brian and Kitty Noel of Bearkat Wood or Krysia Napiorkowski of Krysia Designs for these or other custom housewarming gifts.
