Engraved Tankards: Affordable Personalised Gift and a Perfect Keepsake

Feb 15th 2015 at 10:52 AM

Tankards have a long history—reason for their varied styles and looks. The ones you often see used on a daily basis are more straightforward designs, created for utilitarian purposes, but they also come in decorative styles, which are more geared towards displays and collections. Engraved tankards are definitely an affordable gift option and a great keepsake to remind you of milestones and special occasions. When selecting tankards and hearty beer mugs to buy as presents or keepsakes, remember the following tips and guidelines:

  • Mug and tankard materials vary in strength, quality, and visual appeal. The most popularly used materials for tankards these days are glass, stone, and pewter, although wooden versions are also available, albeit quite rare. Of these materials, glass is arguably the most common option, especially for engraving, as glass can withstand the process and hold the engraving much longer.

  • Tankards are very practical gifts, especially for someone who enjoys drinking "like a man." Because these large mugs are something that your friend or loved one will definitely use for a long time, quality is one of the most important things that you should get right when shopping for tankards. Look for a quality finish and know the perfect size that your friend or loved one will like.

  • Pewter is the most popular tankard material available, next to glass. However, pewter tankards are more of a novelty nowadays and are commonly used as a decorative ornament than an actual drink ware. Nevertheless, pewter tankards are still very beautiful and are perfect for use as keepsakes during special occasions. If you want a unique memorabilia for a bachelor party or any other type of celebration, engraved peter tankards are awesome choices.

  • There are many things you can choose to engrave on a personalised tankard. It can be anything from a special message to a funny limerick, the recipient's initials, or your family crest or insignia.

  • Souvenir tankards and beer mugs are very popular keepsakes. Specialty gift stores offer them in many forms, from high-class and expensive pewter and crystals to inexpensive plastics. These are perfect blank canvases for all kinds of engravings. Commemorative mugs and tankards are perfect souvenir items for different occasions, ranging from birthday parties to special celebrations, bachelor or stag nights, and even for corporate events. These kinds of keepsakes are also great additions to anyone's collection.
