Have you ever heard of the book The Five Love Languages?
It’s an amazing glimpse into what makes people tick.
The basic premise of the book is that we all have a love language—or a way that we show love to other people.
There are people who show love through Words of Affirmation (hello KariAnne I’m looking at you).
There are people who show love through Acts of Service (this is my husband).
There are people who show love through Quality Time (this is my mother).
There are people who show love through Physical Touch.
And then, there are the people that show love through Giving Gifts. If this is how you make people feel special? This is the post for you. You see, these are not your ordinary gifts. These gifts are special. And unique. And one-of-a-kind. And creative.

These are 10 of my favorite things.
If you saw my post yesterday you know I am a dog lover.
So I know this is the perfect gift for someone whose pet is a part of their family.
You upload a photo of the dog’s silhouette to this site and they will make a personalized pet silhouette necklace.
I would have given anything for a candle like this when I lived in Kentucky.
There are 50 candles in this collection—one for each state. And they are designed to smell like the state.
It’s the perfect gift for someone who is far away from home and wants to feel like they came back for a visit.
Remember when there used to be card catalogs in the library?
This gift is a little like that.
It’s an 8″x10″ art print of a work of literature with the Dewey Decimal printed on it.
There are dozens of options to choose from and if your book is printed before 1923 you can design a custom card from that book.

Why not make your own reel viewer?
You just upload your photos to the site and they’ll create your very own reel viewer of your photos.
It’s an old school gift with a 2019 twist.
You can make a bracelet or a necklace out of someone’s handwriting.
All you have to do is load the handwriting sample to the website and they will create your very own piece of jewelry from the handwriting.
I’ve designed a recipe wall before, but I’ve never thought of designing a recipe tray.
You can design your own from a family recipe.
Simply upload your recipe to the site and they will design a tray with the handwritten recipe on it.
Looking for a gift for a new couple or someone celebrating an anniversary?
Design your own one of a kind intersection.
You can personalize this artwork with individual names and dates.
When I saw this gift idea, I almost clapped.
How many times have you cooked Kabobs and the vegetables fall off?
These Kabob grilling baskets would make the perfect gift for all the grillers in your life.
We all need to drink more water and this is the cutest way to do it.
I actually gave this to one of the twins last year and it’s really cute in real life.
And for the person who has everything?
Why not a cheese AND crackers board?
I am all about a serving tray that’s a conversation piece at the same time.
PS I’m going to be sharing some of my best handmade gift ideas next week, too.
So many love languages.
So little time.
