With pandemic-related shipping delays anticipated for the upcoming holiday season, now is the time to write your list, check it twice, and decide what you’re giving to the naughty and nice. In fact, it would behoove you to avoid the lines and order early online so you’re not gift-less come December 25.
Regardless of what you purchase for loved ones and friends, though, there’s no better gift than one that celebrates the positive memories of the relationships we enjoy. Personalized gifts do just that!
We’ve taken the overwhelm out of gift-hunting by creating a holiday gift guide with the seven best customizable options.
1. Custom Puzzles
Creating a custom jigsaw puzzle has never been easier. Made-to-order puzzles, which are a fun and thoughtful gift idea for loved ones of all ages, allow you to preserve a beautiful moment or memory beyond just an image on your phone — to an activity for one or many to enjoy indefinitely. Minted’s custom puzzles arrive in a patterned drawstring pouch, nestled in a keepsake box. Enjoy multiple design options for your custom puzzle.
2. Coffee Mugs
They’re for more than just your daily dose of caffeine. In fact, coffee mugs can act as planters, toothbrush holders, pen holders, and more. You really can’t have too many mugs, especially the personalized kind. Inkyandindigo sells quality customizable mugs for that special loved one in your life. Choose images in their likeness to set their mug apart from all the others.
Socks and underwear aren’t necessarily on the top of everyone’s gift wish list. Then again, they’re not only practical but, when personalized, can also add a bit of charm to your stockpile. Even better? Socks emblazoned with photos you’ve handpicked for that special someone. The possibilities are endless and full of potential hilarity. My Photo Socks will take your photo and design the perfect socks for your loved one.
Whether adorned on your car, laptop lid, water bottle, or the back of your smartphone, stickers offer a great opportunity to showcase someone’s unique personality. StickerMule is well-known for its high-quality stickers. With a variety of options for sizing, shapes, and quantity, and a proofing system that aims to please, you can’t go wrong. Plus, where else can you buy stickers and hot sauce?
5. Custom Gift Boxes
A box compiled with your loved one’s favorites is a fantastic way of saying, “I know you!” Plus, they’re oh-so-fun to receive! Not sure how to get started on this gift idea? InkCourage is a small business that supports local artists and nonprofits, all while providing high-quality gifts for countless occasions. Not only that, but 5 percent of each purchase supports local causes.
Decadent and delightful sweets will always serve as a great gift that doesn’t take up shelf space and tastes amazing. Many companies offer customizable chocolate wrappers (or even stamped chocolate). Want to give a gift but don’t know what your recipient likes? SugarWish lets recipients choose what sweets they get as part of their gift experience! Indeed, your gift is guaranteed to be something they love.
Albeit necklaces, earrings, bands, or bracelets, fine jewelry is an extension of one’s personality, as demonstrated through their style. But it shouldn’t end there. The best kind of jewelry is the kind that tells a story. Bryan Anthonys offers meaningful designs so that customers can always share and express who and what matters most. With stackable pieces, you can create a set of jewelry just as unique as your loved one.
One-Of-A-Kind Gifts Are More Than Just Stuff
While there are many opinions on when to begin decorating for Christmas, it’s never too early to buy your holiday gifts. This year is no exception. 2021 hasn’t been a one-size-fits-all kind of year, and neither should your gifts. Indeed, this is the perfect opportunity to demonstrate your love and adoration for those special people in your life through thoughtful, one-of-a-kind gifts. Whether it’s a custom puzzle or a made-to-order custom box, one or more of these gift ideas is sure to stand above the rest this holiday season.
