Holiday gifting is just around the corner so I’m rounding up some gorgeous personalized gift ideas for her… whoever she is. In this case, these custom gifts are so pretty I might buy them for myself ;)
You guys know I love customizing everything I get my hands on. When it comes to gifting- I love to have that option available as well. That’s one of the reasons I love Etsy so much. When I first bought from Etsy more than 10 years ago, you bet it was for custom handmade items! This year when they asked if I’d like to work with them to curate some of my picks, I knew one of my gift guides would have to be personalized pieces.
So today I’ve rounded up 10 custom items I’m drooling over right now. They make the perfect gifts for a loved one, good friend or… yourself. Which honestly, is who I’m shopping for right now ;)
LEFT TO RIGHT / TOP TO BOTTOM
ONE: These lovely pouches are such a sweet gift idea- for a sister, a bridesmaid, a dance teacher… yourself. I love the delicate gold lettering that matches the gold zipper.
TWO: Back in the day… like in 2013, I put together this round up of custom address stamps from Etsy. I purchased that first one but have yet to get one for our new place since moving last year. It’s about time! This is the one I’m currently eying– I love the sans serif font of the address. I’m thinking about seeing if they can totally customize one… with my lettering. Wouldn’t that be rad?!
THREE: It doesn’t matter what Matriarch Handmade makes… I’d probably buy it. It’s all so darn good. But this custom pennant? Is precious too. A perfect hand written note you cherish? Put it on a handmade pennant for the best gift ever.
FOUR: One of the features I love about Etsy is that you can search by shop location! I put in my location and found these gorgeous little constellation necklaces made just a couple hours down the road from here! Since having twins, I love the Gemini constellation so even though that’s not my sign- I’d probably choose that one!
FIVE:I love embroidery, but honestly… it doesn’t usually jive with my home decor. But this modern floral monogram? It’s PERFECT! You can pick your colour but this brown is totally calling my name so I’d probably go with that!
SIX: I’ve been following Sun Poured over on Instagram for a while- she’s literally a ray of sunshine. And one of the things she shares- these custom hand lettered bibles she paints for custom orders on Etsy. Aren’t they darling? What a precious gift this would be to someone.
SEVEN: How sweet is this watercolour portrait? You can send in your picture… you, your family, your pets… even a travel destination you’ve been to and have a custom portrait painted! It’s such a beautiful keepsake.
EIGHT: This cute shop has a whole bunch of personalized ornaments- from the colour to the lettering, but since this is a gift guide ‘for her’ I thought this new grandma ornament was too good to leave out!
NINE: I have this mouse pad in my cart right now. It’s leather and that modern design is so aesthetically pleasing. You can customize the engraving on the bottom which is why I haven’t checked out yet. What should mine say? I need to order soon before my new office is done! This would be a perfect gift for an entrepreneur.
TEN: Last year I put together a similar roundup and the ring I’d chosen (and bought for myself, might I add) isn’t available any more! So goodness knows I needed to find a new one. This one is maybe even more gorgeous than the last– with a dainty band and rough cut stones. You can get any two birthstones you like so it would be such a perfect anniversary gift! Or a sisters ring… or a mother daughter ring… or just two stones you think are pretty.
Phew! That’s a bunch of beautiful gifts… isn’t it?! The only problem with making these guides is it makes me want to order them all for myself… ha!
