11 Gifts Made with Kid's Handwriting and Artwork

Kid's Handwriting and Artwork

Early childhood is a time of many sweet milestones that come and go so quickly. Examples include laughing, talking, and walking. A child’s first attempt at art and writing is another important developmental milestone.

As parents and grandparents, we plaster our child’s artwork and writing samples all over our fridges and walls, marveling at the new skills our kid is learning.

It’s too bad most of these written and illustrated kid masterpieces aren’t made to last, because kids quickly outgrow that adorable “wobbly” phase of writing and drawing. Parents and grandparents preserve paper and ink as best they can, but many of these treasures are lost over time as they fade or get covered up by new layers of artwork.

What if we told you we could make your kid’s most priceless scribbles into long-lasting keepsakes?

It’s true!  Love, Georgie can, indeed, turn handwriting into gifts!

These make terrific presents for grandparents and parents on Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas, and birthdays.

Let’s take a look at these awesome engraved gifts that use your kid’s actual handwriting or drawings.

Handwriting Jewelry

Who doesn’t love jewelry? We can engrave your child’s artwork or writing on a variety of necklaces, bracelets, or rings. We offer many of these in sterling silver, 14K gold, 14K rose gold, and stainless steel.

Bangle bracelets are a favorite choice. Our variety of sizes means you can get a bracelet that fits any woman on your gift list. Imagine Mom’s delight when she sees a custom engraved bracelet featuring her 7-year old son’s first drawing of a family pet.

Some of our engraved jewelry pieces can be engraved on both sides! We can engrave your child’s artwork or handwriting on the front, and put their name and age on the back, as we’ve shown on this 14K gold plated bangle bracelet.

A necklace with artwork or handwriting engraved on the pendant is another great choice! We have a variety of pendant sizes and shapes available.

This example shows a round silver pendant engraved with a great drawing of a girl and her ball. Is it a basketball, soccer ball, or volleyball? Maybe it’s a ball of yarn. Who knows? The mystery is what makes kid art so fun!

Here’s our first example of a kid’s handwriting turned into an engraving. This girl’s handwritten “Nana XOXO” engraved on a rose gold pendant is going to make Nana happy for sure. Wouldn’t this make a great Mother’s Day present for Nana?

Let’s not leave out rings! Our wider bands will accommodate very small drawings or kids’ signatures. In this example, two girls – Emily and Grace – have their signatures engraved on our 8mm stainless steel ring. This size looks good on men and women. We’re certain that Emily and Grace’s father loved getting this ring for Father’s Day!

Dads also like our custom engraved dog tag necklace. There is plenty of space on the 1.5 x 2-inch dog tag, so it’s a great choice for engraving kids artwork, multiple children’s signatures, or a longer piece of handwriting.

Handwriting Engraved On Accessories

We can also engrave kids’ handwriting and artwork on a number of useful accessories! Money clips are a popular gift choice for dads, uncles, and grandpas.

For the money clip shown here, we engraved a kiddo’s handwritten nicknames for their uncle. It doesn’t get any more original than “Pickle Baby’s Favorite Hugger”, amirite?

Likewise, the family man who wears a lot of suits and dress shirts will be delighted to receive a pair of collar stays engraved with his child’s actual handwriting. Space is limited on these, so we suggest choosing a short message or a child’s signature.

Almost anyone in the family will love receiving a custom engraved Christmas ornament featuring kid artwork or handwriting!

Sarah, Age 7, drew a fantastic Santa Claus that her parents turned into a gift for Grandma.

And Max wrote such a nice note to Santa that Mom thought she’d turn it into a family heirloom. (We sure hope Max got the bike!)

We want to point out two more nifty ways to immortalize a kid’s handwriting as a gift. The first is with this custom engraved guitar pick. Lila’s Dad ROCKS, and so does her handwriting.

If the gift recipient is a golfer, we know they’ll find this gift useful. It’s a golf ball marker engraved with a short message. Wouldn’t a child’s drawing of a golfer also be fun on this?

How to Get a Perfectly Sized Engraving of Your Kid's Handwriting and Artwork

For best results, keep the engraving simple and short. Our pieces vary in size, with the smallest ones able to handle the least amount of text.

  • Items with a large area for engraving: money clips, bottle openers, leather bracelets.
  • Items with a compact area for engraving: rings, necklace pendants, most bangle bracelets.

The longer the message you ask us to put on a piece, the smaller we’ll have to engrave it. For that reason, short phrases work best!

You could choose something as simple as a child’s handwritten signature. What nana wouldn’t be thrilled to receive a necklace that had a pendant for each grandchild’s engraved signature?
