The holiday season is in full swing, and we’re in the gift-giving mood. Just one problem…why is it so hard to find gift ideas that are meaningful, useful, and affordable? Lucky for you, we’ve rounded up a few of the best ideas for you to use when creating custom bracelets for your friends and family.
Looking for a stocking stuffer? Simple, but effective gifts for friends and family? How about a fun themed addition to a gift basket you’re putting together?
If you need a gift idea, keep reading, and get inspired.
For the gamer in your life.
Choose a popular phrase or video game theme and create something unique for your gaming enthusiast. Do they love Tetris 99? Design a t-spin inspired bracelet. We even have fun video game clipart options to choose from! The options are endless, so do a little digging and let your artistic side come out.
If you’re not feeling so creative, we also sell a contra code bracelet you can purchase. Choose to customize the second side or leave it as-is for a classic gift for your gamer.
For your sentimental loved ones.
If you’re looking for an extra meaningful gift idea for your sentimental loved one, you’re in the right place. Draw on one of their favorite memories or phrases to make something they’ll cherish and love to wear. Choose to add the coordinates of a location that is near and dear to their heart. Where you met, their hometown, their wedding venue, etc.
Add a special phrase that is meant just for them, and you’ll be sure to impress with your custom gift!
For your sporty and athletic friends.
For your sporty friends and fitness fiends, add a motivational message to help them crush their workouts and daily routine. Messages are powerful, so this inspirational band is a gift that keeps on giving throughout the day. When things get hard, your gift will help them push through and reach their personal best!
Whether your loved one is just starting their journey to the healthiest version of themselves or they’ve been on the path for a while, your uplifting message is a loving reminder that you believe in them.
For the outdoor enthusiast.
Leather bracelets are a popular choice for jewelry among men and women alike. We offer four different bracelet styles for you to choose from, so pick out a new favorite bracelet for your gift recipient! Made from genuine leather and hemp, this adjustable bracelet is one-size-fits-all, and matches with everything.
From outdoor lovers to those who prefer simplistic, neutral jewelry, our rope craft bracelets are sure to please!
For your significant other or closest friends.
Show your significant other or closest friends how much you care with a personalized, wearable message of affirmation! Add a cute quote like “two halves of a whole” or “partner in crime”, or a simple “I love you!” for a unique gift. Customize your gift even further by selecting from our free clipart library.
Friends and family will appreciate this simple, thoughtful gift, so add this gift idea to your repertoire!
For the person who has everything.
Let’s face it, some people are just hard to shop for. Whether your gift recipient has very specific tastes, or they seem to have everything, a motivational bracelet with a personalized message will bring a smile to their face. Everyone has bad days, so give your loved ones something to help them through theirs.
If none of these gift ideas seem quite right, customize a silicone bracelet that will fit the bill with our easy-to-use band builder. The possibilities are endless with custom wristbands, so find your creative side and get gifting!
You go through this every year. You’ve tried all the usual things, from the basket of lotion and body spray for your significant other, to the high-cost gizmo that you think is the coolest thing since the moon landing. Often times, your gift recipient is merely “whelmed” by your attempt at a kind gesture. Maybe he or she is the person who has everything, or maybe they’re just too darn particular. What’s a person to do?
You’ve learned from your missteps, you’ve tested the waters of gift-giving diversification. You’ve spent more money than you care to admit on presents that just didn’t rock the socks off them. Maybe now you think you’re a more discerning and seasoned giver of gifts. Perhaps this time, you can find that million-dollar idea without spending an amount equal to the national debt. And, just maybe, that laughably affordable gift can actually mean something and be (dare we say it?) creative, and thoughtful! If any of this sounds familiar, read on. This is worth the scroll.
Boatloads of people have found the “secret sauce” of gifting. It’s affordable, classy, and it’s creative. You can buy it without leaving the chair, and you can customize it without needing a degree in graphic design. Any guesses?
We know what you’re thinking: “Aren’t those the LIVESTRONG wristbands everyone wore like 10 years ago?” Well, you’d be correct. But what you may not know is that thousands of couples, boyfriends, girlfriends, husbands, wives, cave trolls, etc, take to the depths of the internet every month to seek out a personalized wristband for him/her to profess their undying love in a colorful and unique way. These rubber bracelets are easy as pie to design from the comfort of your computer or smartphone. Speaking of which: they aren’t actually rubber, they’re silicone, but it’s a lot easier to describe them as rubber to the uninitiated, so in our book the two are synonymous. They have that “rubber” feel, but they’re latex-free, so extra points go to you for thinking of a touching gift that won’t trigger any allergies. You’re just all kinds of considerate.
“I don’t feel that creative. How would I personalize a bracelet for my true love?”
Well, first of all, don’t be so hard on yourself—you’re great. Secondly, this post is for everyone, not just youthful people caught up in twitterpation and boundless passion for life. You may need a personalized wristband for your girlfriend or boyfriend, or maybe you drew names for your family Christmas gift exchange and you got your younger brother, Kenneth. You’re going to need to come up with a snarky quote for a wristband that’ll put that little weasel in his place (in a loving way, of course).
Whether your gift is for someone you love platonically or hopelessly, we’ve got an arsenal of ideas for you to use to make your wristband a home run. We’ve been doing this a long time; since 2004, to be exact. You can imagine the phrases and sayings we’ve seen on silicone wristbands over the years. Some of them have made us laugh, some have made us swoon, and some of them we can’t really repeat out loud.
With our online bracelet maker, you can put just about anything on your wristband, or many wristbands, if you like. That way, you can make it be one of those cute couple silicone bracelet sets so you can wear your heart on your sleeve (you might even consider adding the coordinates of a meaningful location, like where you first met, for an extra special touch).
“What should I write on my wristband?”
Ah, the possibilities… For starters, some of our most popular sayings and messages for silicone wristbands are ones like these:
“I love my girlfriend”
“I love my boyfriend”
“True Love Waits”
“I Love You”
I mean, that last one isn’t that original, but why break with the old standby, right? Combine that with some lovely color styles and slide that wristband on and it’ll be super-effective! Additionally, we often see phrases like “I Love Basketball” or “I Love Football”. We get that. Sometimes all you need is the warm embrace of the pigskin to console you from the harsh realities of life. No judgment here.
“What are some different ways I can use custom wristbands?”
Great question! Beyond the aforementioned ideas, there are myriad ways to let your creativity burst through in the form of glorious silicone bracelets. Since we’re on the topic of couples and love, here is just a sampling of ideas for uses:
Bachelorette/Bachelor Party Favors
Matching His and Hers Wristbands
Bonus:Check out our new Luxe dog tags necklaces on Amazon. They’re also perfect for your boyfriend/girlfriend, significant other, or your dog, of course. They’re based on our same design, but with our signature, velvety-smooth Luxe coating added. We really did try to think of everything.
Hopefully, you’ve learned some things about rubber bracelets, and maybe even yourself. Either way, you should be primed and ready for delivering an impactful gift or show of love with a nice-looking wristband! We’ve got plenty more ideas for you over at Reminderband, so take a look while you’re contemplating how to be the most considerate person ever. Or maybe you just want one of our awesome tire-tread wristbands for yourself, because hey, you’ve earned it.

No matter who you’re buying for, you can choose a wristband color and font that they’ll love. Even the pickiest of gift receivers will enjoy a personalized memento designed by a loved one. Add a simple “I Love You” and a heart to the second side for an extra-special touch.

Personalized gratitude bracelets are the perfect fall accessory to brighten your mood this November and holiday season. Create one for yourself, or order one to gift to a loved one for a positive reminder that no matter what, we can choose to see the good.
In the U.S., it’s estimated that 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer during her life.1 While a cancer diagnosis will turn anyone’s world upside down, our customers have found a few uses for custom breast cancer bracelets to make this life-changing event a bit easier to digest.
October is breast cancer awareness month, so it’s the perfect time to build awareness on this important cause. Providing extra support during a cancer warrior’s battle can make all the difference, so read on for the best ways to use custom silicone wristbands to aid in their journey!
Creating custom breast cancer wristbands can help unite friends and family together as they look for ways to provide support to their newly diagnosed loved one. As Kathleen found, a simple wearable reminder can help you keep loved ones in your heart, mind, and prayers when they’re struggling.
Providing additional support to a cancer warrior’s circle can help strengthen them throughout the difficult times ahead. Add a personalized hashtag to show your support, and a comforting phrase to help build a mantra of strength and courage. Many customers choose a hashtag with their last name in it for their breast cancer bracelets, such as #SmithStrong. These custom rubber bracelets are often given to the group of individuals supporting the patient’s journey.
Some examples of common phrases used on breast cancer bracelets for support include: #TeamMadison, #KellyStrong, Cancer Sucks, No One Fights Alone, or phrases such as Sarah’s Warriors. These messages are often accompanied by awareness ribbons, heart clipart, or other graphics from our free art library.
It’s no secret that medical expenses rack up quickly, especially with something aggressive like breast cancer that requires multiple treatments and doctor visits. Joseph, along with many other customers, has found that designing and selling breast cancer awareness bracelets is a great way to build awareness for breast cancer while simultaneously raising funds.
Whether these funds are designated to help pay for medical bills, support families and individuals in need, or fund additional education and research, custom bracelets are a great choice for a fundraiser due to their affordability and versatility.
There are many fundraisers that benefit from using custom wristbands. We often hear about events such as races that are held to raise money as well as smaller-scale fundraisers that primarily sell the wristbands. No matter what method you try, it’s easy to create a breast cancer bracelet for the event.
Common phrases to include on fundraising wristbands for breast cancer awareness are: Find a Cure, #IRunForSydney (or other event hashtag or name), or messaging indicating what the funds are being raised for (research, support, etc.).
Motivation & Inspiration
It’s extremely easy to lose hope when life throws a curveball like breast cancer at you. As Cas and her family found, custom cancer bracelets can help provide another source of inspiration and give you hope for the future as you look to your ‘circle of strength’.
Everyone has favorite words and quotes that inspire and motivate them when they’re feeling down. Find out the favorite inspirational messages of your loved one and have them engraved on a set of wristbands to show them that no matter what, they are not alone in the fight.
Common phrases to include on inspirational breast cancer bracelets are messages like: Hope, favorite scripture verses, inspirational quotes, and personal messages from loved ones.
Education & Organizational Support
Supporting your work family during difficult stages of each member’s life is part of what makes your work family a family. Gustavo’s company ordered breast cancer bracelets to do just that, support a coworker in her time of need.
Businesses, nonprofits, and other organizations often create custom breast cancer bracelets in the fall for educational events to build awareness. How far the cancerous cells have spread at the time of diagnosis is critical, so providing a reminder of how important it is to follow recommended safety precautions and check for abnormalities could be life-changing. This is just one reason why custom breast cancer awareness bracelets are a great addition to an educational event, class, or assembly.
Common phrases to include: breast cancer awareness, supportive phrases, and personalized hashtags like #KendraStrong.
Whether your loved one is newly diagnosed, receiving regular treatments, or is now cancer-free, having a comfortable medical ID is crucial to ensure proper treatment is received during emergencies. Judy ordered an eye-catching medical wristband for her mom so she could have peace of mind that medical professionals would know her mother’s pre-existing medical conditions in an emergency situation.
Common info to include on a medical ID bracelet: information about past surgeries, stage of cancer, treatments or medications currently being taken, and any underlying medical conditions that would affect the treatment given.
Gifts & Survivor Bands
Another fan-favorite use for our silicone bracelets is breast cancer gifts for women, typically in the form of gifts for survivors, or remembrance bands. Edith and her sisters wear their wristbands as a tribute to the fight they won and the blessings they’ve received in that victory.
We offer multiple styles to choose from when designing your custom silicone gift or remembrance bracelet, including our pink awareness ribbon keychain. You can choose from multiple fonts and clipart options for your custom message to create a personal gift or survivor memento.
Leigh created her custom breast cancer bracelets to show thanks for the support she received during her battle. She loved being able to hand out the wristbands as tokens of her appreciation to her support system for being with her through the thick and the thin of her cancer journey.
Some of our customers’ favorite phrases to engrave on gifts or survivor bands include: Cancer Warrior, I Beat Cancer, Cancer Free, and survivor hashtags such as #JennyBeatsCancer.
If you have lost a loved one to breast cancer, you can create custom bracelets to hand out as memorial favors to help others remember their life and wear as a keepsake. Celebrate the strength they showed and the battle that was valiantly fought to the very end. Alan created a memorial bracelet for that very reason, to remember his best friend and what she means to him.
The loss of a loved one is irreplaceable. Creating something special to remember them by is one way to help in the grieving process. Wear your memorial bracelet with pride as you remember the amazing person symbolized in it.
A few common phrases to engrave on cancer memorial bracelets include: Never Forgotten, Forever Loved, #ValiantlyFought, Brave, or other personal hashtags and phrases.
With 1 in 8 women (and 1 in 1000 men) being diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime, it’s important to find ways to make the situation a bit easier on patients and their families. Custom breast cancer bracelets can be created and used in multiple ways, including support, fundraising, and motivation, to name a few. If you have any questions, please reach out to our friendly customer support team so we can help you create bracelets that you’ll love!
We see hundreds of creative bracelet designs come through each and every day. This season, we’ve noticed a spike in popularity with three designs in particular. From single wristbands to bulk orders, here are the up-and-coming custom bracelets design trends!
1 – Social Distancing Bracelets
A new bracelet design that has been a big hit this fall is color-coded event wristbands. The red, yellow, and green color combination has been the most common choice for events as they function as social distancing indicators. Guests can feel more comfortable as they choose the wristband color that fits their current level of social distancing and are able to easily communicate this level with other guests. We offer both blank and personalized rubber wristband options!
If red, green, and yellow isn’t your style, we have multiple color options to choose from. Add an event hashtag, slogan, or personal message to create a fun keepsake for guests to take home. You can easily create wristbands for a wedding, fundraiser, party, bridal shower, family reunion, or any other type of event!
2 – VOTE Bracelets
Michelle Obama’s VOTE necklace has made its way through the jewelry industry, and we’re now seeing orders for similar bracelet designs roll in. This election year you can share your message with the world in our eye-catching silicone bands. We believe that everyone’s message matters, so design something that will help you express yours!
3 – Coordinate Bracelets
Your favorite vacation spot. The city where you grew up. Where you met your significant other.
Our most cherished memories are tied to specific locations. The coordinates of the locations that are most near and dear to your heart make a great addition to a bracelet. Design one for yourself or to give as a gift that is both thoughtful and meaningful.
Coordinate bracelets are also a popular option for couples bracelets or anniversary gifts! You can add the coordinates on the front and a personal message on the back to make your wristband even more unique and special. Choose from our available styles and layouts to make the perfect memento.
Runner Up: WW_D Bracelets
While the “What Would ______ Do” wristband isn’t new, its demand is growing and, therefore, deserves the runner-up title. Starting with the ever-so-popular WWJD (What Would Jesus Do) band, we’ve seen more and more customers ordering bands with their own initials and meaning.
One of the most frequently ordered acronyms is “WWMD”. Whether the ‘M’ represents ‘Mom’, ‘Meredith’, or some other name, each acronym has its own meaning. Give meaning to your wristband, and add a source of inspiration to your day, by adding the first initial of your favorite role model.
The possibilities are endless with custom bracelets. Stick around to see more trends and exciting ways to share your message. Whether your message is intended for the world, a friend, or just yourself, wear it proudly!
