Artisic and Custom Gift Ideas
Giving gifts such as personalized tote bags is an expression of thoughtfulness – giving something, well, personal and functional, for a special person in your life. Or, as a gentle reminder, a gift to yourself. At Laurel’s Originals I love to do custom work painting textile art, creating unique products for our clients. Such work keeps my creative juices flowing and exposes me to new ideas and new art.
Some clients have a much defined idea of their preferences, including those for custom, personalized tote bags. Such was the case with our client Sheila, an interior designer in Costa Rica. With a clear vision for design and color, so armed with several photos off of our websites in both canvas totes and canvas rugs, she was able to show us exactly the “feel” of her own personal style.
For a personalized tote bag order, Sheila provided her business card with a logo idea along with a brochure for a color scheme for the logo. Her custom tote bag was not only a beautiful mix of artistic design but it show-cased her business information in an attractive and creative way.
If you have a gift in mind for someone, friend or family member (or you!), who has a particular passion for anything, butterflies, bugs or music for example, we can create personalized tote bags that reflect that passion in a personal way. The recipient will receive a useful item (canvas totes, beach bags, clutch or messenger bags) with their passions pronounced, talents displayed, milestones remembered! Such a personalized gift acknowledges individualism and celebrates passions.
Have Tote Will Promote
Incorporating color and design for personalized tote bags together with a logo creates a whole new dimension in advertising a business…in an artistic way. It carries so much more than a small card, oops! Was that a pun? Laurel’s Originals canvas totes and bags are large and roomy – holding a lot of whatever it is that needs to be carried!
We have found that our canvas weekend bags have just the right dimensions for certain businesses to carry their goods for personalized tote bags. One physical therapist says her electrode machine fits perfectly when she goes on house calls. Another client uses hers to tote natural tinctures to clients and lectures. These ladies’ personalized tote bags advertise their services in a unique manner to and fro. But of course, they work just as well for men!
Whether you have a clear idea or need help with formulating some creativity in the design department for a hand painted custom tote bag we can create the perfect customized gift.
