Personalized Gift Tins Make Great Gifts and Party Favors

Updated on April 6, 2013

Personalized Gift Tins Aren't Just for Weddings

Customized gifts and favors are always a great way to celebrate an occasion, and personalized gift tins are a good choice because they can be saved and used again to store candy, pills, or small treasures. But if your idea of a custom tin is a wedding favor with two names and a date printed on it, think again. You can now get personalized gift tins designed for everyday occasions such as birthdays and the holidays, and many can even be customized with your own photos. Whether you're buying for a baby shower, a graduation, a birthday, or just to say, "Thank you!" there's a personalized gift tin for every need and budget.

Personalized photo mint tins are great for weddings, birthdays, graduations, or any occasion where you want to include a photo to remember the big event. Most stores offering wedding favors, such as My Wedding Favors, will have a few options that allow you to add your own photo. Many times you can repurpose the "wedding" favor as a favor for another type of party, such as a graduation, while other times the design of the tin or the personalization options will make it difficult.

Some personalized gift tins will leave the text and design up to you so they can be used for any occasion. That means you can have fun designing your favors for graduations, birthdays, baptisms, or other events.

Not everyone likes mints or cookies. Or perhaps you just want something a little different for your tin. How about a container of personalized Jelly Belly jelly beans? The great thing about ordering from Jelly Belly is that there is NO minimum. So if you just want to buy a single tin, you can. They also offer a lot of options for customization, from your choice of a regular rectangular tin or a jelly bean-shaped one, to your choice of background image or text. You can also upload your own photo.

Baby showers are another occasion for which people offer buy personalized gift tins. In addition to choosing individual mint tins as favors for the guests, other options include buying one large container filled with goodies such as cookies or choosing other types of personalized favors such as travel tin candles.

Just because you're sending a gift tin doesn't mean it needs to contain something edible. These personalized puzzles come in their own tin showing the same photo used to create your custom puzzle. The large rectangular-shaped puzzles includes 252 pieces and can be created with horizontal or vertical photos.

This tin of mints is a little different from the usual tins sold for showers, weddings and other special occasions because you can personalize the box AND the candies inside. The round window tin is filled with sugar free peppermints that can be customized with a full color picture or message. You can also personalize your tins with the bride and groom's name or a special short phrase.

Personalized birthday gift tins can be used to keep reminders of the big day and save mementos from the entire year. You can personalize tins such as the ones shown here with text and photos and then fill them with whatever type of candy, cookies, or birthday gift you wish.

Mints are great for baby showers, wedding or parties, but if you want a gift rather than favors, they're not the best option for filling your personalized gift tin. Chocolates, on the other hand, are sure to be a hit with any of the chocoholics in your life.

At Dan's Chocolates, you can send an chocolates in a box personalized with any photo you upload. Choose your recipient's favorite flavors - assorted, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, all caramels, caramel pecan clusters or sugar free/low carb.


These personalized holiday tins are great to send as gifts during the holiday season. They can be personalized with your name, photo or even cartoon characters representing your family, and then you can fill them with your own home-baked holiday cookies, brownies, candies or other goodies.

Most personalized gift tins are round, square or oval. But if you want something a little unusual, you can also find shapes such as these - a star or a masquerade mask. Or check out Jelly Bellys for jelly bean-shaped tins.
