What are the fun ways to gift aluminum this holiday season?  When we hear the word “aluminum,” the first things that come to mind are those busy construction sites, a stretch of beautifully designed and elegant windows in city buildings, that stylish sports car you saw on the road one time, or the thin metallic wrapping on your favorite sandwich (or that cold six-pack waiting for you to get home). Aluminum is everywhere and it has shaped our world in many ways.

And as you may have already known by reading our past articles about aluminum here at Taber, the applications are only limited by our imagination. We know that it is pliable – lightweight yet strong, rich in properties, and highly recyclable. Wouldn’t it be awesome to gift your loved ones something made in aluminum this holiday?

I bet you didn’t see that coming from us here at Taber – but as the holidays draw closer, we want to help you explore these gift ideas, so you don’t have to wait for that traditional 10th-anniversary aluminum gift.

Smart Watches/Wearable Technology

Most smartwatches in the market today use aluminum and even aircraft-grade aluminum

casing for their wearable devices making them elegant and durable. Help motivate your loved ones on their fitness journey with style.

Yes, the first thing to consider when purchasing a laptop is its specifications or what is under the hood. But laptop chassis or casings made with aluminum are more durable than plastic making it safe for the internal components inside.

Aluminum Cookware

Cookware made from aluminum is widely used in the restaurant business because of its durability and it distributes heat well making them cost-effective.

At the bottom left corner is two hands reaching to grab two water bottles colored black and white on their sides on a white sheet. And the photo on the right shows aluminum pans in a row hanging on hooks on a wall of a kitchen.

Water Bottle Tumblers

These are great vessels for your hot and cold drinks because their ability to retain temperature makes cold drinks stay cold longer and hot drinks stay warm.

Luggage Bags

Light yet durable, this is the reason why most luggage bags are manufactured using aluminum. They can be resistant to liquid, are professional-looking (but stylish at the same time) and are easy to secure.

Aluminum Photo Print

They are light and easy to hang, making them appropriate for large-scale designs suitable for both indoor and outdoor spaces.


When aluminum is anodized, it allows the absorption of dyes and paints into the material making stunning and unique effects.

On the upper right is a portrait of a person, both hands holding the jewelry on their head and wearing a large aluminum bracelet on one arm. The third photo in the lower right corner is a portrait of a person on the dark background with headphones. The image is created with lines of vibrant neon colors signifying music and art.

Aluminum Guitars

According to Hoxey Guitars, an aluminum guitar exhibits a very full-frequency tone with a piano-esque low end, a detailed midrange, and a complex treble brilliance that lends it a chorus-like three-dimensionality.

A Romantic Sound Wave

A company like Soundwave Art makes aluminum soundwave art by sandwiching a black, solid plastic core between two aluminum sheets. Your Soundwave is printed and attached to the aluminum.

Kitchen Appliances

While stainless steel might be more durable than aluminum, it’s also heavier in exchange, and aluminum is a much more lightweight material to work with and handle. You can learn more by visiting this link.

These are only some of the general ideas that make ideal gifts made from aluminum that you can consider this holiday season. Isn’t it surprising to know that aluminum can be a unique, elegant, and thoughtful way of showing your loved ones how you took the time to give them something to enjoy this year?
