Having a hard time figuring out what to buy everyone on your list this holiday season? Want your gifts to be unique and special? Whether you’re buying something for your beloved grandmother or your daughter’s favorite teacher, we’ve compiled a list of some personalized gifts at varying price points that you can truly make your own.
Say goodbye to those impersonal flannel pajamas and say hello to these one of a kind options:
Picture Puzzles - Young, old and in between everyone loves puzzles! They offer hours of fun and boost brain power and logic. You can purchase your picture puzzles for beginners with only 20 pieces or up to 300 pieces for the expert in your life. Give friends and family a gift that comes from the heart with puzzles designed from your original works of art or treasured photos. Picture puzzles can also be framed and transformed into beautiful wall art. Use your personal photos or hand-made design to make it truly unique!
Custom Coffee Mugs - Grab a gourmet bag of your favorite coffee beans and pair it with a custom coffee mug that you designed. Old and young alike can design mugs with their original artwork, photograph or funny saying. Great for tea and hot cocoa drinkers as well, just swap the coffee for organic loose tea or rich hot chocolate.
Mouse Pads - Even your toddler uses the computer! Custom made mouse pads are personal gifts that you can present to colleagues, friends, relatives and teachers. They are inexpensive and also make terrific stocking stuffers!
Personalized T shirts - If you’ve been on a cruise or to Disney, you have seen those families walking around with personalized t shirts that read “Miller Family Vacation”. Don’t wait for a vacation getaway to get your family custom t shirts. Order individual t shirts that express each family member or friend’s personality. Whether it’s a funny photo or favorite motto, they are truly unique gifts that are fun to wear.
Photo Buttons - If you have more nieces and nephews than you can count or you are a teacher who wants to surprise her students with a little something special, photo buttons are just the thing! They say “I’m thinking of you” without doing major damage to your holiday spending budget. Whether they are traditional pin back buttons, mirrors, key chains or coasters, they are fun and can also serve as decorations for your gift boxes. Another great idea is to add photo button coasters to a gourmet basket or mirror buttons to a spa basket.
Monogrammed notepads - Small gifts can be the perfect add-on to gift baskets or paired with an engraved pen and stationery. Monogrammed notepads are just the thing to add a personal touch to complete a package. Great extras for teachers and your employees.
Prints on Canvas - When it comes to buying gifts for those near and dear to you, it can be difficult to find something that expresses how special they are to you. Prints on canvas allow you to highlight a memorable moment in time that they can adore for years to come. Your photographs become museum quality masterpieces!
Calendar Magnets - Probably everyone you know has gotten a calendar for Hanukkah or Christmas at some point in their lives. It’s a great gift to ring in the New Year. Calendar magnets are a terrific alternative to traditional paper calendars because they are customized using your designs or sayings. Make them funny or festive. Great for home or office.
