11 Unconventional & Thoughtful Gift Ideas

3D engraved crystals give you a rare opportunity to present someone with a thoughtful and unique Christmas present that can hold a message or memory close to their heart. Not only does it demonstrate your creativity, but it also freezes a memory in time and lasts for generations. 

3D crystal gifts can give your holiday season just the right sentimental touch. Here is our list of 11 unconventional and thoughtful gift ideas in the form of 3D crystals for Christmas season!

  • Gift a Customized Family Portrait

Present your parents with a laser-engraved 3D crystal with a 3D rendering of a family portrait, creating a beautiful keepsake for the ages! Pick a design and shape of your choosing and watch as it comes to life in the form of a 3D engraving right in the middle of a glorious crystal. The crystal prestige design is a highly popular choice for a customized family portrait. 

  • Choose a Pet Lovers' Gift

There is always someone you know who is a die-hard fan of their pet. It's always a head-scratcher to find something for such a person. Well, you can hit two marks with one stone with a 3D crystal tower containing a rendition of your friend's adorable pet! Whether a cat, a dog, a hamster, or a turtle, you can simply choose your dear one's favorite pet's picture and capture a 3D image of the beloved pet. This way, your friend's pet can be with them when they carry their unique Christmas gift around wherever they go!

  • Commemorate Wedding or Anniversary Memories

Getting married on Christmas day can take away much of the limelight from your special anniversary. The holiday season steals your thunder, in a way. But why let that refrain you from commemorating a perfect memory? Pick a clear, high-resolution picture of the two of you that you love the most and get it etched into a crystal hear. You can choose a picture from a memorable time together or a wedding photo that you wish to memorialize in this unique Christmas gift.

  • Immortalize a Baby's First Moments

A baby's first moments are as precious as anything, especially for the new parents. You can commemorate the birth of your friend's new baby by presenting them with a 3D crystal engraving of a picture of the baby along with their date of birth and name. Another new trend is to immortalize the baby's footprints or hand prints. This will definitely be the perfect departure from traditional Christmas gifts. 

  • Create a Star Map Crystal

Another unique Christmas gift in the form of a 3D crystal can be to get an etching of the night sky's configuration on a special date or location. This could be the night your partner proposed to you, the night of your first date, the night of your child's birth, or any other memorable event. Choose a clear crystal brick that can really bring out the engravings, and opt for an LED base that can light the "night sky" from the bottom! 

  • Choose Customized Christmas Scene

Design your unique Christmas gift in the form of a 3D crystal engraving depicting a picture of a cherished Christmas memory. This could be a picture of the family opening Christmas presents around the tree, a winter wonderland scene, or just a shot of a happy couple ice-skating in the rink, holding hands. Customized Christmas 3D crystals are a classic and always hit the right mark when aiming for unique and thoughtful Christmas presents. 

  • Use an Inspirational Quote

Got a friend who is down on their luck or a fan of a famous writer? Choose an inspirational quote or their favorite line from a loved book and get a 3D imprint of the same in crystal! This personalized gift will be the perfect conversation starter and provide ample opportunity for your friend to give a backstory, adding depth to your gift exchange! 

  • Memorialize a Special Location

Celebrate the memory of an exceptional location, such as a childhood home or a favorite vacation spot, in the form of a 3D crystal! You can choose a clear picture of the recipient's favorite place or a picture of the two of you in a location that holds special significance for both. This way, the happy memory of that place will always be with your loved one in the form of a unique Christmas gift. 

  • Sports & Hobbies

We all have a family member or friend who is a crazy loyal fan of some or the other sports team. Then what better gift for them than a 3D crystal engraved with their favorite sports team's logo? Create a memorable and unique Christmas gift by featuring your dear one's best-loved sports team or player, and watch their eyes light up as they unwrap the present on Christmas morning! 

  • Graduation or Academic Achievements

Christmas is the perfect time to celebrate anything and everything, including graduation and academic achievements. Gift a recently graduated niece, nephew, or God-child a 3D crystal with a picture of them as a graduate to celebrate their accomplishments and make them feel ardently loved. 

  • Personalized Names or Initials

Last but not the least, choose a 3D crystal shape and design a stylish and personalized gift by getting the receiver's name and initials engraved inside. The holiday season can be the perfect time to present this unique Christmas gift to give your loved one an idea of how special they are to you. 


Mass marketing and fast fashion have made it quite challenging to create unique and thoughtful Christmas presents that truly speak to your friends and families. 3D crystal gifts offer a way out of that problem and allow you to make your Christmas gifts truly special. 

Personalization is key to presenting a thoughtful gift, and your efforts are sure to be appreciated once your loved ones unwrap the brilliance of their beautiful 3D crystal gifts.
