Stepping stone gifts are decorative, unique and designed to last for many years. It's a great idea to look for stepping stone-themed gifts to commemorate important milestones in a person's life, such as a graduation, wedding, or new baby or grandchild. If you're searching for a gift for an avid gardener, stepping stones themselves will be a welcome addition to any backyard haven.

Engraved, Personalized or Monogrammed Stepping Stones

Retailers that carry items for home and garden will frequently sell stepping stones, with the option to carve an engraving or personalisation into the material. These stepping stones are usually made out of a durable, natural and attractive material like slate. Engraving the stones may cost extra, but you can include designs that are unique to the individual or a personal message that will commemorate the occasion forever.

Souvenir Stepping Stones

Souvenir stepping stones can be a great alternative to the run-of-the-mill postcard. Look for souvenir stepping stones to give as gifts once you return home from your holiday destination. Many areas famous for their beaches, gardens or other natural settings will have many different stepping stone souvenirs available. These may include an illustration or embellishment illustrating the particular time and place.

Naturally Occurring Stepping Stones

If you're a collector, it's worth your time and effort to try gathering stones and rocks that will decorate someone's bathroom or garden. Stones that you find in local wooded areas or on day trips may not be stepping stones in the traditional sense, but they can be beautiful and functional for the gift recipient. Look for large pieces of flint or stones with unusual stripes of colour or different textures. Don't lift with your knees!

Themed Set of Stepping Stones

Give a set of stepping stones united by a theme. For example, if the gift recipient is fond of poetry or writing, give a refrigerator magnet poetry set on stones, like the set available from Craft World. Or order a set of stepping stones in which each stone has been engraved with an inspirational word or brief proverb -- a welcome addition to any healing garden. Consider the individual tastes of the recipient and the reason for the gift when selecting a theme.
