Think of sentimental value over commercial value. An amazing, personalized gift will not only cover the specific tastes of a loved one but also elements of their life. Honor, celebrate and cherish the memories of the past with your gift-giving. You are also preserving an essence of their life. Try to consider the practicality of a gift, too. If you know a loved one is in need of or wants something they may not necessarily buy for themselves, that is a fantastic opportunity to get them something personalized that they’ll use all the time!

To create the most impactful gift, try thinking about the story you want to tell your loved one with your gift. Do you want to commemorate an activity or trip the two of you shared? Do you want to honor the memory of someone who has passed? Or, perhaps, do you want to create something that reminds them of you? The possibilities and stories are limitless! 


The holiday season is not only a time to celebrate the love you have for your family and friends, but it is also a time on which to reflect and show gratitude towards the time you have spent together (and possibly apart). Giving is about more than a price tag and reindeer wrapping paper. Giving is a thoughtful act of love, compassion and tenderness. To give your loved ones personalized, unique gifts is to give the gift of memory itself. No matter what story is being told with your particular choice, you will know that your gift is embracing the true magic of the holidays.


If you’re looking for a unique gift idea for this holiday season, a MemoryStitch t-shirt quilt or pillow is a warm and wonderful winter gift to show your loved ones a more personal kindness and compassion.
