With Easter soon approaching, and parents everywhere looking for new ideas to fill their kids’ Easter baskets, we thought we’d throw together a quick idea list for some unique Easter basket stuffers and gifts. An easy go-to is candy, but there’s only so many sweets we can logically give our kids without going overboard. Whether your child has a nut, dairy, or other allergy found in most types of candy or you’re looking for non-candy items, you’re in the right spot!
The sky is the limit with customized bracelets! Create a bracelet for each of your kids with a motivational phrase, message of love, or favorite quote. Try adding their initials or meaningful coordinates for a cute, trendy bracelet in the color of your choice. You could also order matching bracelets for the whole family with a special message, or maybe a family hashtag.
Whether you use your religious bracelets as Easter egg stuffers or standalone gifts in Easter baskets for you kids or grandchildren, they’re a small but meaningful gift that will help everyone remember the reason for the season.
If you’re filling Easter eggs or shopping for prizes for a large group of kids, blank silicone bracelets or wholesale wristbands might be the way to go. Kids love the fun, bright colored silicone bands, making them the perfect children’s accessory. Of course, you can always go for customized bracelets instead, choose one phrase for all of your bracelets to make ordering a breeze.
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. Oftentimes, 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 your 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. Custom made bracelets 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. Second, 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 custom bracelet 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 personalized 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 customizable bracelets 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 custom bracelet 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.
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: If bracelets aren’t your jam, we also sell customizable dog tags! They’re another great option, perfect for your boyfriend/girlfriend, significant other, or your dog, of course. 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.

Some people think that “rubber bracelets”* and “silicone bracelets” are the same — but the terms are not interchangeable. Rubber and silicone are very different and while the results may look similar in the form of the wristband, the two materials yield very different results in terms of flexibility, durability, and long-term wear.
Silicone is stronger and longer-lasting than rubber, meaning that silicone bracelets are stronger and last longer than rubber wristbands or rubber bracelets of comparable size and thickness. Rubber bracelets wear out quickly and break much more easily. Silicone is also recyclable at certain recycling centers. At Reminderband, we make wristbands out of 100% industrial-strength polished silicone.
*not to be confused with rubber band bracelets, which are something else entirely.
