As I ease in to the thought of Christmas and Holiday Gift Guides myself, I thought that it would be a good idea to start off with an early bird guide to all things personalized. Since the lead times are usually longer on personalized gifts, you really do need to start thinking about ordering them within the next week or so to ensure a Christmas delivery. I scoured my favorite site for handmade and personalized pieces (Etsy, duh) and found 17 pieces that I adore for everyone on your list. Personalized gifts always seem just a little more thoughtful to me since you really do have to think ahead and order early to pull them off, on top of that I love that ordering through Etsy supports lots of small businesses during the Holidays. Here are my top picks…
1 | Personalized Golf Ball Set
For the guy who has everything, these make the perfect gift. Whether he displays them in his office or sinks them within the golf course lake (like my husband), they make an awesome gift regardless.
2 | Monogrammed Dopp Kit
These leather personalized dopp kits are so awesome for guys, especially ones who travel often or maybe going back and fourth to college. I think that they are so handsome…
3 | Personalized Watch Case
I got my hubby one similar to this for our Anniversary a few years ago and not only does he love it, but so do I. It actually looks like on his nightstand and there are no watches strewn all over, instead they are neatly organized.
4 | Monogrammed Wine Glasses
These are so great for newlyweds or even single gals who are trying to get their bachelorette pads in order. A couple of these paired with a bottle of wine also makes a lovely hostess gift, too!
5 | Monogrammed Golf Towel Set
Oddly enough, this is one of my favorite gifts on the list. I love how classic this towel + monogram is and think that it makes a great gift for guys of all ages and even the ladies who golf on your list. It clips right on to their bags and you won’t believe the price!
6 | Custom Family Portrait Illustration
Another favorite on the list! Since this illustration ships out within 1-2 weeks (double check with the seller closer to Christmas), I love the idea of taking Holiday cards you receive with family portraits and then having them made into custom illustrations to surprise those families with at Christmas!
7 | Monogram Necklace
You can’t go wrong with a good monogrammed necklace…they span all ages ranges and most styles and this one is a wonderful price!
8 | Monogrammed Crossbody Bag
Out of all of my searching, this was my favorite new shop to find! Her handbags + monogram combos are so on trend and adorable and I will be crossing off a lot of my list in this little shop. You really have to check it out!
9 | Monogrammed Earrings
Another fun monogrammed gift for the lady in your life. A great everyday option and something that I actually lack in my jewelry assortment, so I will be adding these to my own list for sure.
10 | Roman Numeral Rings
Aren’t these cute?? You can personalize them with special dates and I think that they are so cute stacked together or even worn with other jewelry.
11 | Personalized Cutting Board
This makes the most darling hostess gift or even a gift for newly weds or new homeowners on your list.
12 | Custom Wooden Puzzle
I know that these have been around, but I wish that I had gotten one for Landry last year when she was SO into puzzles. Not only does it help with motor skills but also letter and name recognition.
13 | Custom Look-a-Like Dolly
This little mermaid dolly can be completely customized to look just like your little princess, isn’t that adorable??
14 | Custom Donut Felt Food Tray
I love felt food for kids’ play kitchens and of course this donut set caught my eye right away! This shop also has a full assortment of darling felt food!
15 + 16 | Personalized Hero Capes
I mean how cute?! What kid doesn’t want their own cape? This shop makes lots of options for boys and girls and I think that Santa should bring your whole crew one!
17 | Personalized Wooden Bowling Set
I love this precious and classic personalized wooden bowling set. Hours of fun setting up and knocking these guys down and could also be used to display on a shelf in a little boys room.
Pin for later…
