Holiday Gift Guide: Personalized Gifts

Custom Gift Ideas for Her, Personalized Gifts, Holiday Gift Ideas for Her

As much as I love fall, the time has come to shift this blog into holiday mode. It feels like this year is flying by — and I’m a little later than usual to kick off my holiday content.

For the first holiday gift guide, I wanted to share some “custom gifts” (aka, items that you can personalize) since these gifts take the longest to produce. It takes about 2-3 weeks for monogram or custom orders to come in, so if you’re thinking about a personalized gift for a loved one, the time to order it is now. Shipping cutoff dates are rapidly approaching for custom pieces, so don’t procrastinate!

If you’re looking for an extra special gift this year, here are some personalized picks you should consider!

Holiday Gift Guide: Personalized Gifts

Stoney Clover Classic Large Pouch 

For the traveler or the organized friend, the iconic Stoney Clover Large Pouch would be a perfect gift. I love the customization options you have here — you can add as many patches as you’d like to the pouch in all different colors and fonts. And you can even add icons to their bags as well. The possibilities are endless!

Cuyana Travel Jewelry Case 

A couple of years ago, I bought myself an older version of this travel jewelry case from Cuyana, and it has held up so well throughout all my travels. And folks, I’m on a plane 1-3 times a month, so yeah — it gets the job done. You can monogram this jewelry case for a bit of a personal touch. 

Rifle Paper Co. Personalized Flat Notes 

I invested in custom stationery last year for the first time, and folks — it’s such a game-changer. In the digital age, there’s something so special about a handwritten note. For your friend who’s a stationery addict, Rifle Paper Co. offers several personalized flat notes that are timeless and beautiful.


Custom Home Portrait House Illustration 

Looking for a sweet gift for a parent or an in-law? You can commission a custom water illustration of their childhood home (or any building of significance!) and support a great small business at the same time.

Lucky Marble Monogram Serving Board 

For the host with the most, you can get them a personalized serving board that will sure to wow. Depending on the letter, this board will either come in white or black.

L.L. Bean Boat and Tote 

Who knew this preppy staple would make a massive comeback in 2022? This year, there’s been a huge trend of people ordering the Boat and Tote with ironic sayings, and it’s taking over social media. Think of all the possibilities here — get one for your bestie, and have an inside joke monogrammed on it!

Vegan Leather Passport Case 

Having a chic passport case at the airport makes a long travel day much more manageable. No need to fumble for cards or travel documents — having a passport case is one great way to keep everything together. For this case, in particular, you can opt for several different types of foil-embossed monograms.

Leatherology Meadow Large Satchel 

Leatherology bags are stunning and offered at a very affordable price point. Many of their bags have the monogram option, but I love how unique this embossed monogram is on their Meadow bag — which is offered in different sizes.


Baublebar Custom Pisa Bracelet 

I just got a custom bracelet in the mail from Baublebar last week, and I have been wearing it nonstop ever since. They’re crafted so well, and they look so much more expensive than they are! As of 11/17, you can enjoy 20% off all of their custom gifts.

Weezie Monogrammed Robe 

Oh, this robe is divine, and it feels so luxurious and has held up well for me while washing. You can’t go wrong with gifting a Weezie robe or their plush, monogrammed towels

Block Font Custom iPhone Case 

You can never have too many phone cases. This custom case, in particular, has been a best-seller for years. What makes this so special? Each case is custom cut and is set by hand, yet it’s well under $100.
