Be it a birthday, graduation, an anniversary, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or just because, finding the perfect gift can be a challenge. If you’re in search of something unique, personal, and special, glass might be your answer. The applications of glass are truly limitless, and glass is longer-lasting and better for the environment than most of its alternatives. Additionally, with Techni-Glass’s Infinite Impressions digital glass printing services, you can print any design or image onto glass.
Again, the possibilities are infinite, but here are 5 ideas for custom glass gifts to get you started.
1. Personalized Coasters
Everyone uses coasters all year long, making them the perfect gift for any occasion. Add a custom design or print to your glass coasters to turn them into a unique, one-of-a-kind gift.
2. Glass Portraits
Portraits are such a sweet and special gift, but it’s time to start thinking outside the frame. Our portraits are created with state of the art digital printing equipment using ink that is burned into and bonded to the glass for a permanent print that will not scratch off. Because of the way the ink is burned INTO the glass, the portrait is visible from both sides of the glass. This makes glass portraits perfect for hanging on the wall OR placing on a desk or shelf as a stand-alone item. We can also drill holes in your glass portrait so it can be hung from the ceiling to display both sides at once.
3. Custom Cutting Boards
Glass cutting boards are a perfect gift for the baker in your life. Glass boards are ideal for cutting cookie dough, rolling out pastry or pie crust, and kneading dough. Additionally, glass cutting boards are more scratch resistant and more sanitary than plastic and wood cutting boards. You can take this gift even further with a custom design or print. Both functional and aesthetically pleasing, this gift will be put to good use regularly AND will be left on the kitchen counter for decorative purposes even when not in use.
4. Glass Cornhole Boards
Cornhole is a summer staple. You’ll find boards at every great BBQ, but how often do you come across glass cornhole boards? Here are some reasons you may want to consider being the first to kickstart this emerging trend in your neighborhood: Glass cornhole boards are sturdier, easier to clean, and more weather and scratch resistant than wood cornhole boards. Additionally, despite what you may be thinking, glass cornhole boards are not heavier or harder to transport than your average wooden cornhole board. Not to mention the endless customization opportunities!
