Custom Personalized Gifts IS Who We Are...

Making your Personalized Gifts "Truly Memorable" IS what we do...

Inscriptions are sometimes very personal, a memorable quote, a statement of affection or one of appreciation; these are best left to you, your feelings and the occasion.  Be creative, and take advantage of our generous FREE engraving.  If your message just won't fit on the special gift you've selected, send us a note or call us: 281-286-7199.  One of our gift counselors will happily assist you with any options that may be available. 

Most often, personal inscriptions are designed to capture the memories and emotions of an occasion or event.  These occasions generally revolve around a day or a date.  Most often, simply engraving the recipients name, initial(s) or monogram and the date of the occasion on a gift is sufficient to trigger memories of that special day for many years to come.  Weddings, anniversaries, graduations, retirements, birthdays, the birth of a new baby, are all such events.

Below we have compiled a list of gift ideas, common occasions for gift giving, and inscription suggestions for your special events.

Albums and frames are good anytime gifts.  An engraved album or frame is the perfect gift to complement the photo(s) taken of a special occasion.  Everyone who views the gift will vividly remember his or her favorite memories of the occasion.
