Personalized gifts are on another level of gift-giving. Not only are you hunting for something your recipient likes, but you’re also altering it so it’s custom to them. However, not all personalized gifts are created equal. The last thing you want is for your loved one to open the wrapping paper and give you a frozen smile that reads, “This is going straight to the back of the closet.” That’s why we’ve put together this gift guide, which includes 21 vetted personalized gifts that they’ll be eager to display or use. And all you have to do is click to order. It’s a no-brainer.
It’s easy to find a variety of personalized items these days, but what you’ll find here goes beyond tried-and-true options like engraved champagne glasses or monogrammed cufflinks. Instead, here you’ll find unique but practical gifts that will likely be used and appreciated, like personalized AirPods, tote bags or a cutting board decorated with their initials. We also know that something whimsical and fun can be equally awesome — a photo puzzle, for instance, or even a beverage tub for holiday parties. Pet portraits, personalized jewelry, or celebrity video messages are special options for those you know well. Whatever you choose, adding that extra special personalized touch is sure to bring holiday cheer.
