1. Knives are actually useful.
How many times have you received a present like a nice set of cufflinks or a stuffed animal only to see it waste away on top of a dresser collecting dust? The thousands of ways a person could use a knife for everyday tasks makes it one of the most useful and functional gifts out there. Knives, depending on the type, can be stored in cars in case of emergencies or carried on the belt to help open boxes or slice fruit. Other types of knives, like throwing knives, can be used for sport and entertainment.
2. Knives can be personalized.
Take a look around the house at all the gifts you've ever received. While you might actually enjoy a fair amount of the gifts still in your possession, you've likely forgotten who gave them to you. With knives, you can inject some meaning and lasting memories into the gift by getting someone a personalized knife. At Knife Depot, nearly any of our knives can be personalized with an engraving or logo of your choice. When your friend looks at his knife in a decade, he'll know exactly who got it for him.
3. They make unique gifts for anyone.
Decorative sweaters and socks are staples of the holidays and birthdays. Even though these are gifts anyone can receive, they're the opposite of unique. Not only are knives great gifts for anyone from well-known outdoorsmen and jack-of-all-trades to women and responsible teenagers, but they're also unexpected. With a knife, you can put the surprise back in your presents.
