We were taught to hand-make gifts
Recall when in elementary school we handmade Christmas and New Years greeting cards for our family? The straw stars for the Christmas tree? Baked salt cookies that had the only purpose to save as decoration on the tree? It taught us to think about what the person would like. It served to develop our creativity and appreciate someone else’s having a different taste.
It wasn’t called customization, back then. It was called make it personal for XYZ, where XYZ is a placeholder for the person who will get the gift. You were proud of your customized hand-made products. It made the person happy and you were happy about it.
Custom-made is important
Personal style is so important! It’s about you and/or the person. Remember Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World with 200 clones of the same person? What a terrifying imagination of a world full of people like oneself. It would be so boring, right? One would never be surprised, not confronted with new ideas you didn’t have already. No thoughts spend on others. You would know what they think because you think it. Nothing would be personal anymore. Everyone would have the same.
Thanks goodness our World is not like that! We still appreciate hand-made, unique, personalized items. We still have the ideas, but often lack the time for putting them to become reality.

Customization is the business word for making it personal. PurpleTrail is a leading custom stationery company based in Seattle. They produce hand-made planners and other custom printed products according to your ideas! This means you can make your ideas of great hand-made gifts reality at a fraction of the time you would need for just shopping for the material.
The hard to shop for relatives and colleagues are no longer a reason for holiday shopping stress. Who doesn’t like a fully personalized planner, or content planner?
They also custom-make invites and other products that are all handmade from start to finish. They offer a full range of customization on high quality handmade products you want to gift, but you don’t have the time for to make them yourself. Not to mention you couldn’t make them for such an affordable price as they offer you.
Thus, why to stress out to find time for handmade items in your already tight and/or over-committed schedule, when you could as well have someone else make them according to your ideas?
Why can hand-made in the US be cheaper than DIY?
Time is money, right? they have high skilled experienced crafts(wo)men. Experience means high quality and needing less time to make a product compared to a person who does something once in a blue moon. Buying material in small amounts like you would need for your DIY is more expensive than in buying material in large bulks. Moreover, for some crafts you need special tools you don’t have and would have to buy too.
Since they at PurpleTrail make all items themselves from start to finish, there is no added delay. You can get your items in as little as one business day!
