Are you looking for handwriting gifts as a special keepsake, or wondering where to get memorial gifts made from a loved one’s writing? You’ve come to the right place. A handwriting present is one made from actual writing: a loved one’s note, letter, or birthday card can be transferred onto a gift, whether made into jewelry, engraved onto metal, or transferred onto a dish.
On this list, you’ll find functional + heartfelt handwriting gifts for her, him, and for couples. We’ve found wedding dress labels for the bride, handkerchiefs, tie patches for the groom, and sweet recipes-turned-handwritten-gifts for the couple to use in their kitchen. These gift ideas aren’t limited to weddings alone: you’ll find treasured handwriting jewelry and home decor you’ll love, all right here.
We’re kicking off this list with our favorite (and probably most tear-jerking) handwriting gift: a handkerchief designed for the bride with her father’s handwriting. This is such a sweet and bittersweet gift idea and is available exclusively at HookandHoop.

You can get a handkerchief made from a loved one’s handwriting, as shown in this example. The bride carried her father’s words down the aisle with her and had it close-at-hand for wedding day tears. By Hook + Hoop.
As you can see, ‘Dad’ is taken from a handwritten note and transferred onto a hand-embroidered handkerchief.

Although this doesn’t count as one of the gifts made from actual handwriting (it’s a font instead), it is written with your favorite heartfelt words.

4. Cuff Links Made from Your Handwriting
Gifts made from handwriting aren’t just for memorial gifts; they make incredibly sweet and personal wedding gifts, too. The bride can give a pair of cuff links to the groom with a handwritten note, such as, “I’ll love you forever” written in her actual writing. I love this idea! By GeorgieDesigns.

I know because Andrew has a Zippo and LOVES it. :) By WoodPresentStudio.
