How personalized gifts are my X-Wing for the 21st century

I’ve always been lucky when it comes to receiving good gifts. Even as an adult, I have been pleasantly surprised at what my loved ones have thought on my behalf. They obviously know me very well! But it’s some of the gifts I received as a child that really stick with me.

The first one dates back to the mid-1980s and is arguably the biggest toy franchise of all time. I loved it when I was a kid, I’m not ashamed to admit I still love it now, and as for movies… don’t even get me started. Then as now, my favorite Star Wars character was Han Solo, but my favorite ship? That award went to the X-Wing, hands down. It was fucking great! And so it was during Christmas 1985 or 1986 that, with battle damage decals on the sides, my newly acquired X-wing and I walked up and down my grandparents’ hallway in an attempt to recreate the epic attack of the rebels. on the Death Star. I did this for hours, pushing down on R2’s head to spread his wings into his attack position, while he yelled “Red Five waiting…”, or “Cover me, I’m coming in!” Happy Days.

The second featured giveaway was equally innovative. It was Christmas 1990 and thanks to Paris-based family friends, my parents were able to get hold of it ahead of its UK release. I had been desperate to get my gloves on one and had searched my parents’ room everywhere in an effort to find my own little Excalibur. I was unsuccessful, but Christmas morning came and I knew I was in luck: a perfectly sized, perfect weight, rectangular shaped box was under the tree. For the rest of the day, my eyes were glued to the portable bundle of joy, as the Tetris theme played throughout the house. It probably got pretty annoying. Not that I gave a damn, I had a Game Boy!

Adults and teenagers tend to be the most difficult. They’ll give you a junk list, insist there’s nothing they really want, or give you some ideas that would shred your credit card within an inch of your life. Do the bells ring? If so, personalized gifts could be the answer to your prayers. Today there are websites that specialize in allowing you to easily personalize gifts, usually with a name and message. And they also give you a variety of goodies to choose from. Below are some ideas you might want to think about.
