If you’re a fan of keys, you’ll love getting your hands on a custom keychain. There are so many different ways to personalize one that makes the perfect gift for any occasion or any friend that has everything. Keychains have become extremely popular in recent years, and we’re happy to see that people are taking their love for keys and making them into something beautiful and personal.
If you aren’t familiar with keychains yet, they’re small charms that usually contain a special message or logo of some kind. The design will often be printed on one side while the other side is made up of plastic or metal so it can be worn as a necklace, charm bracelet, lanyard, etc. Not all keychains are the same though; some of them may be rather plain while others might be completely customized to match your friends, family, and work ID perfectly. You can find unique designs made by various companies such as tools, knives, cribbage boards, wine corkscrews, lighters…the list goes on! So without further ado: here are eight awesome options for making your own custom keychain!
1. Keychain with personalized message
Keychains are perfect for adding a personal touch to any gift. You can choose between several designs that can be personalized with your friends’ or family’s names, addresses, or birthdates.
