Are you a fan of personalized gifts? I am. I like to look for the more unusual personalized gifts and thought you might benefit from my research. Someone should, right? Just kidding, I like to think my gift recipients benefit too! I’m featuring some family name gifts and a couple for individuals, so hopefully your gift list gets covered by one of them. If you are looking for something specific, let me know, I may know where to find it! Did I tell you I spend a lot of time trolling the internet?
I love how different these pillows are from your typical family name choices. I could see these sitting on a bench in an entryway or on a couch in a family room. Something they will love forever.
I guess I must have entryways on the mind today! Again, a gift they will use forever and think of you every time they see it.
Who wouldn’t want to receive one of these custom family portraits? You can choose from individuals, couples, families, combined families, whatever fits your situation. Don’t have a photo of their family? Buy a gift certificate from the shop and they can provide the details.
Have a teenager on your list? Or maybe your basic suburbanite like me on your list? Then this personalized phone case is your go to! You can go with first name or monogram. Lots of color and pattern choices.
Glitter and even better your name in glitter? Sign me up. As someone with an unusual name, I never, ever find things with my name on them so I always have to go the custom route. This bag would make me mega happy and make me forget all the times I couldn’t find my name! I can see this working for many women in my life and I am sure your life too.
So this collection is definitely not cheap and way above the price point I usually target for my gift guides. I feel like it’s so special I had to talk about it. I haven’t seen anything else like it before and I feel like there are a lot of people who would love to get this. It comes in rings, earrings, and necklace versions. You could go with their name, their child’s name, their pet’s name or their significant other’s name. You could also go with a word they use as a mantra, company name, the possibilities are endless. This could be a really special gift.
What do you do if you’ve missed the cutoff to order a personalized gift?
My first question is, when are you planning on giving the gift? Sometimes you won’t get the item before Christmas, but you may still be able to get it very soon after. If you aren’t planning on meeting up with the recipient until later in the season, you should still be okay.
If you are planning on seeing them earlier in the season, you could always order a gift card from the store and put it and a description and photo of what you planned on ordering into a gift box or card for presentation. This is also a good idea if it is something that requires photos, or a lot of description that you do not have on hand.
Third option is to go ahead and order and just provide them with a photo of what the end gift will be with an apology. All of these gifts shown above are so cool, I personally wouldn’t mind receiving mine after the holidays!
I’d love to hear about any personalized gifts you like to buy in the comments!
