Personalising your hip flask

"I love you a little more each day, T xx" - Anonymous, Engraved on a SWIG in 2015.

One of the best gifts you can give someone is something personal. Something they won't find anywhere else and something that will always remind them of you and the moment you gave it to them. That's why, at SWIG, we offer engraving on our flasks. We give you the pages, you write the story. 

I've always loved to see what people are engraving their flasks with. I understand that at moments like Christmas, stress can take over and inspiration may not be at its best. For that, today I thought I'd show you some great ideas for engraving messages, based on what our customers have asked in the past.

Hope this brings you inspiration for making your gifts much more personal.

 

 

1. A date

We all have special dates that have marked our lives. A first date, a wedding, a birthday or even a graduation day. Engraving a date on your gift is a beautiful way of immortalising those days and having a constant reminder of happy memories. 

2. A name

Again a very obvious one, but sometimes the simple stuff is what makes a difference. Either their name, the name of their hometown, or the name of a restaurant or cafe that holds a special place in your heart. 

3. Coordinates 

This is a very creative one we've seen more and more of lately! People ask to have the coordinates of the place where they got engaged or married at. Besides a nice and warming swig of whisky you'll always know the way to a happy place. 

4. A wedding message

We have lots of people buying SWIG Hip Flasks for weddings. Naturally if you do, you won't want to engrave anything else other than your wedding or a love message. Include the names of the couple, the wedding date, and a quick message such as "Wishes of eternal happiness from your groomsman"

"I love you. I am who I am because of you. You are every reason, every hope and every dream I've ever had, and no matter what happens to us in the future, everyday we are together is the greatest day of my life, and I will always be yours. You are my best friend as well as my lover, and I do not know which side I enjoy most. I treasure each side, just as I treasure our life together.
With all my love on our anniversary" - Anonymous, Engraved on a SWIG in 2015.

5. A joke or a pun 

These are our absolute favourite! Some of the puns make us crack up here at the Swoffice and I'm sure they'll make the gift receipient smile every time they use their swig flask. I've curated a few of the office favourites, should you need inspiration :)
