Items with engraved sayings can be a truly personal gift or keepsake. There are a number of different items that can be engraved as well as many different sayings to use. Depending on the occasion, finding the right item and saying can take some thought and creativity. Once you decide, the engraved saying will be there forever as a reminder of the occasion.


Many people choose a piece of jewellery to have engraved. Metals such as gold and silver are often used for engraving. Whether it's a birthday, Christmas, an anniversary or another occasion, the name of a person, the date and a personal message can be used for a pendant, a charm, a bracelet or on the inside of a ring. Some pieces already come with engravings such as "I love you", or "Happy Birthday," while other pieces can be custom-made with any saying you want.

Toasting Glasses

Toasting glasses are another item that can be engraved with sayings of some sort. An idea that can be engraved on glasses is something such as "L' Chaim", which means "to life" in Hebrew, or another suggestion is "Toast to Life" or "Celebrate Life." Having some kind of celebratory saying on toasting glasses is appropriate for the use of the glasses and a reminder of a festive occasion.

Keepsake Box

A keepsake box can be engraved with a saying to make it more meaningful. For example, quotes from famous writers or prominent figures such as Oscar Wilde, who wrote "Keep love in your heart," or Marcus Tullius Cicero, who wrote "Life is nothing without friendship." Keepsake boxes typically come in wood, ceramic and silver and can be engraved with any saying you want. If you want something romantic, keepsake boxes often come in the shape of a heart.

Desk Accessories

Other items that people will have engraved are desk accessories such as business card holders, envelope openers and pens. Often these types of items will have sayings that have to do with success like "Failure is a detour, not a dead-end street" by Zig Ziglar, or "Victory is sweetest when you've known defeat" by Malcom Forbes. "Happiness is the key to success" is another saying written by Herman Cain that would be an appropriate saying for a desk accessory.
