How to choose an animal design to match personality


One of the best things about engraving and printing is the variety of designs you can choose from, and one of those is choosing animal motif images. A great idea is to get an animal motif that suits the personality of the recipient - this is not only a thoughtful present, it’s also a fun one! 
If you’re looking into animals, it is important to know that animal totems can actually play an important role in our lives as they capture our imagination and help us on the path to self-discovery. If there is a particular animal you’ve always been drawn to, it’s likely this is your animal totem and there is a reason you’ve always felt connected. It’s an interesting concept. 
If you’re not sure what animal the recipient of your gift likes most, choose one that you believe represents their personality. Here are some ideas for animal motifs, and the meanings: 
BEAR: The bear is both a tranquil animal, and a powerful one. It represents strength and offers support during difficult times. The bear is a symbol of bravery, peace, motherhood, duality, fearlessness, confidence and courage. If your gift recipient has these qualities, there are some fantastic bear motifs to choose from (and if you’re looking for a child who you want to grow up having these qualities – you might choose a teddy bear for fun!). 
CAT: A cat represents someone who is good at keeping secrets. Someone who is astute, intelligent, adventurous and independent. They are resourceful and represent the need for change. This is a great idea as a gift for someone who is just graduating from college or who has been going through a difficult period lately. 
FROG: If you are drawn to frogs, it could mean you are able to face difficult situations with ease. You don’t hold onto anger or bitterness, instead wanting to release those emotions so you can enjoy life. Frogs guide people to take better care of themselves, physically or mentally. If you are hoping to cheer someone up, a frog motif is a great idea. 
DOLPHIN: If you want to wish someone good luck, a dolphin is a great motif to choose. For centuries, sailors around the world have thought of dolphins as good omen when travelling the seas. Dolphins are playful, protective and peaceful and are ideal if your recipient is self confident, has good morals and great inner strength. 
FISH: The fish represents someone who is fiercely independent and who has the ability to adapt easily to a range of circumstances. This is a great motif to give to someone who is graduating or moving on into a new role. It will help to give them the courage and strength to take on their new challenges. 
BUTTERFLY: Butterflies are amazing creates. They start as a caterpillar, build a home for themselves, and then emerge as an endearing creature that everyone loves. If you’re considering this as a motif for a gift for someone, they are ideal as a symbol of personal transformation and change. It stands for life cycle change and renewal. They are great for wedding gifts, birthday presents, graduations and for a grieving gift to help someone move forward into the next step of their life. 
HORSE: A horse motif is fantastic for someone who loves adventure and who is about to embark on a new phase in their life. The horse represents a drive for success, someone who is passionate and motivated. It helps people to achieve their goals in life. 
DOG: The dog represents someone who is loyal and intelligent, resourceful and protective. To the Chinese, dogs are considered to be a harbinger of friendship. A dog as a symbol shows you have a lot of love to give and that you have no problem succeeding in the background, while someone else takes the spotlight. If someone needs a little extra love or support, or is a great friend, this is a great motif to choose. 
Whatever symbol you choose as the motif for your next gift, try to think about the recipient and where they are in their life. Your choice could help them along the way.
