Personalized Gifts for the Holiday Season
The best gifts are those that show you’ve gone the extra mile, whether they’re just particularly thoughtful or completely personalized.
With Christmas and the holiday season coming up soon, it’s time to start thinking about the gifts that will blow your family and friends away. Whilst usually we’re all about saving money where you can, it can be fun to splash out for a super special gift that you know your loved one will appreciate, so here is a little shortlist of some luxurious gift ideas to get you thinking.
Smythson Bags and Stationary
Starting with style, Smythson is a London-based stationary and leathercraft company that has been making quality products since 1887. Steeped in history and recognized throughout the world for their quality work, Smythson supplies some of the best stationery available and includes a personalization service that can give your gift that little extra something.
Starting with their leather bags and jewelry cases, Smythson offer gold stamping with a loved one’s initials or symbol to help you tailor your gift in every possible way. On the other hand, Smythson’s bespoke stationery service requires you to get in touch with them to create the perfect motif and design. They’re incredibly versatile but also quite expensive, so keep that in mind if you’re considering Smythson products as a gift option.
Tateossian Initial Cufflinks
On a slightly more affordable note, Tateossian initial cufflinks are an easy way of giving your loved one a really personal addition to their formal outfit. Each of the cufflinks comes with a different letter of the alphabet, allowing you to tailor your selection to whoever you’re giving your gift to. Each cufflink focuses on a classic look and is made using a combination of gunmetal plated metal and black mother of pearl to add a little uniqueness to the overall style. You really can’t go wrong with these as a thoughtful holiday gift.
Personalized Xmas Stockings and Calendars
Focusing on the holiday theme, personalisedxmas are another British-based company that specializes in personalizing all things Christmas. They stock Christmas item you could possibly need, from baubles to stockings. Offering multiple different styles and fully customizable text options, these gifts are great for the little ones in the family (and very affordably priced!)
Wonderboy’s Personalized Books
Wonderboy is a leading book publisher that specializes in offering unique and personalized storybooks targeted towards children. They ship across the world within 48 hours and in a dozen different languages.
Their children’s books vary in style and approach from a Where’s Wally style to more conventional fantasy tales but all of them let you pick a character to feature within the story based on your child’s appearance. Similarly, the story is designed to be tailored around your little one (or young gift receiver) and so the child’s name is also featured within the story.
A good example is their bestselling Lost My Name book, where the main character of the story (your child) loses their name and has to go on adventures to rediscover it. The website also comes with a preview mode, allowing you to see exactly what the book will look like and include before ordering. So even if you’re not sure about the idea, it’s easy to take a look and decide.
With this mix of luxury expensive items and lovely, more affordable options, it should be easy to think up a gift idea that your family or friends will fall in love with. Just remember to start thinking about it sooner rather than later, because the holidays tend to creep up on you if you’re not careful.
