When you want to make an impact on someone important to you by gifting them with a present that they will truly love and not just put somewhere and forget about it, it can be stressful to come up with just the right thing to purchase. But with over two billion people (and rising!) in the world using smartphones, a phone case is easily a good choice!
The dilemma now is what kind of phone case to get them. What you think is the perfect cover may not be quite their taste. And what you think is gaudy and ugly may be just what they would have loved.
The good news is you don’t have to be caught between these two potential no-win situations. Instead of shopping off the rack at a store with limited variety, try going online and doing a little research into creating an elegant custom phone case for that impressive next gift.
Why an Elegant Phone Case is Always the Perfect Gift
When you see someone randomly who has a custom phone case, your interest is automatically piqued. What is that on their case? How did they get it on there? How can I get one, too?
Those are almost always the thoughts that go through most people’s minds when they see someone lucky enough to have a phone case with their favorite picture, logo, or image on it. Humans are by nature curious and a custom case has even the most introverted person intrigued. And you can do that for a special person so that they can be the envy of everyone else, as well.
Just like any other phone case, custom cases are designed for most of the common phones used today. Your imagination is the limit when it comes to the design of your phone case because it’s customized to your preferences – or, in this case, the preferences of the person you are giving it to as a gift.
There are many reasons why custom phone cases are quickly rising in popularity as the go-to gift for that special person. When flowers and candy are to cliches, and the person you are trying to impress has higher tastes and standards than the mundane gift-giving experiences, a custom phone case is an answer to your needs.
Give the Gift of an Elegant Phone Case
Sure, you can wait until the last minute and run to the grocery store or department store for a gift card or box of candy and flowers, but just about every person who gets those as a gift can see right through them. These gifts say, “Hey, you weren’t important enough for me to take time out of my schedule to find a good gift for you, but here’s something I got last minute. I got you something, though, so that should count!”
If that’s the message you are trying to send, then great. Go for these old standbys and go about your busy day. But if you are trying to send a message that says, “You were important enough for me to note that your important day was coming and I even planned ahead to get you just the right present,” then designing a custom phone case is the right path for you.
The thing about a custom phone case is that while most people would absolutely love to have one, so very few of them are willing to spend the money on it themselves. They may consider it frivolous and feel guilty about buying it. They may not be able to afford what they consider to be an extravagant gift for themselves, but they don’t mind spending the money on others. Or they just plain don’t have the extra cash at all.
But you probably do or you wouldn’t be wondering what gift to get them in the first place. So why not spend your money on something they would definitely use and appreciate?
Custom Phone Case Gifts are From the Heart
When you get someone a custom phone case, you not only are showing that you took the time ahead to plan for their special occasion, but it also is a great gift for many other reasons. Here are just some of the ways that an elegant custom phone case makes the perfect present.
1. Every phone needs protection from damage. For most phone cases off the shelf, you have to choose between getting one that is aesthetically pleasing or one that is durable. Many of the cute cases available are not made to protect the phone, just to complement your style or wardrobe.
Phones are not made to be handled roughly or dropped, but it happens. For some people, it happens regularly. When your screen or edges crack, it can leave your phone susceptible to water damage and other, even worse problems. But fixing the screen can be pricy, even with an insurance plan to help pay for it. A good phone case is a solution to most of these problems.
The right custom photo phone case is not just made to look good. It’s durable and well-made to protect your edges from impact and help keep the screen from cracking. Giving the gift of this custom phone case can actually help the receiver avoid paying out large sums to fix their phone.
2. It shows you care. When you take the time to design an elegant custom phone case for someone, there are so many levels of great things that this says without a word that it’s almost impossible for the receiver not to love it.
First, you cared enough to remember their special event. It may seem like common sense to you, but many people don’t notice or pay attention to upcoming events. Then, you cared so much that you started planning ahead to find them the perfect gift.
But also, and most importantly, it shows that you understand them well enough to know that they would be able to use and appreciate a good phone case, and you know their favorite likes enough to be able to design a custom case that has exactly what they’d want to see every day, every time they used their phone.
3. It’s a great accessory. Phone cases are not just a necessity anymore. They are now considered to be an important part of your wardrobe. In fact, many people interchange their phone case to go with their clothing.
So by purchasing a custom photo or designed phone case for your loved one, you are helping them reach the pinnacle of fashion and keeping them from having to change their case since a custom case goes with everything!
4. They’re really not expensive. Yes, you want to give the perfect gift, but if money were no object, you’d likely be taking them on a vacation somewhere or buying them a new car.
If you are like billions of other people in the world, you want to give them a fabulous gift that they’ll cherish forever, but…you’re on a budget. Custom phone cases meet this requirement and won’t make you bust into your piggy bank to be able to afford one.
While they are not as cheap as a standard, off-the-shelf case may be, they are also not expensive and the quality is just as good or better. You get more variety, too. Giving the gift of a phone case means you get to give someone a high-end gift on a low-end budget.
5. They can be personalized beyond a photo or design. Monograms and motivational sayings are all the rage now. You can incorporate the person’s initials as a beautiful monogram or add their favorite inspirational message. You can even add your own personal sayings or simply put their name on their case so there’s no question of who it belongs to.
Whatever form of personalization you choose to use, you’re making the custom phone case extra special to the individual you are giving it to and creating a unique gift that is truly one of a kind.
6. If it breaks or they get a new phone, it’s no problem! So the person you gave the case to absolutely fell in love with it and wants it forever…but they want to upgrade to a new phone. Or, they are accident-prone and dropped their phone and cracked the case. There’s no need for tears!
With most one-of-a-kind gifts, they are literally irreplaceable. But if a new case is needed for any reason, you can just go back to the company that made the first case and order a new one – the same exact one you already ordered, or one adjusted for the new phone they want to get.
It’s a Gift That Keeps on Giving
Every time they use their phone, it will make them feel good just to see their favorite picture or design. And this feel-good feeling will make them think of you, too. It’s a win-win situation, and it’s a gift that will keep on giving the joy of the perfect present for the life of the phone case.
