Compact Mirrors: A Gift for a Lifetime

Feb 15th 2015 at 10:51 AM

Compact mirrors are fool-proof gift ideas for the ladies. These are very practical gifts that can easily be customised as you please. In fact, there are many ways by which you can make a compact mirror more unique and exclusive to the recipient. These small trinkets are perfect as mother's day gifts as well as for giving out to your bridesmaids as a thank you for their presence and help during your wedding preparations. Here are some simple, but awesome customisation ideas that you can do to make your gifts more unique and special:

  • Bejewel it! You can spice up a plain compact mirror with the help of glue or some strong adhesive and a few rhinestones or sequins. The great thing about these materials is that they can be designed and shaped into many different things, from letter shapes to artistic patterns, and other interesting designs, making the formerly bare space into an elegant piece.

  • Spray painting the back of the mirror with a faux finish paint or a metallic colour is also a good way to create a new look for a plain old compact mirror. You may also use crackle paint or use stencils to create unique patterns with paint.

  • Using hot glue and some fake flowers, you may also make the mirror look more feminine by adding fanciful floral patterns on the back of the compact.

  • Beading the mirror is also a good idea, if you want a more versatile material to decorate with. Small beads can be used to create more interesting designs and patterns and add a more colourful touch on your gift.

  • Use decoupage paper to add animal prints or other unique patterns on the mirror.

  • Adding a few of the recipient's favourite objects onto your design is also a great way to add more sentimental and personal value to the gift. This can be anything from shells to stamps, buttons, and other small trinkets.

  • Lastly, you can have the compact mirror engraved with the recipient's initials, name, or a special message to make the custom design more permanent and lasting. Engraving gifts is a great way to add a personal touch on different types of gifts. Compact mirrors are the most popular gifts people choose to engrave, as they are the perfect blank canvas for short and sweet messages.
