‘Tis the season to start thinking about holiday gifts, if you haven’t already! Personalized gifts are always thoughtful and clearly let the recipient know that it was something ordered just from them, not fresh from the gift closet….but they do need lead time, so get them ordered before Thanksgiving.
Loving this custom illustration by Inslee, that can be personalized with a monogram, name or favorite phrase. Perfect for the “girly-girl” in your life. (Inslee by Design, $100)
I don’t know about you, but I am a “coffee on the go” kind of gal. I always have to have my hot cup of coffee when I’m driving the boys to school . These monogrammed coffee cups with lids give Starbucks a run for their money…and no debate on what’s on the outside. You decide! I got gold to go throughout the season. (LB Originals, $56 for set of 50)
I’m starting to see more custom monograms and personal crests, but the original was by Patricia van Essche of PVE Designs. She made mine for me years ago and I still use it on stickers and stationery. If you know someone’s favorite flower or color, this is something they can use in so many ways! (pve, price depends on scope of work).
Initial charms for necklaces have been around for a while, but these are so well priced and I love how the letters are all different shapes and sizes. Makes it fun to combine the letters…by designer, Monica Vinader. (Net-A-Porter, $130)
Lists are always more fun when they’re on a colorful pad of paper…with your name on it! Leave it to the gals at Haute Papier to continue creating fun paper products. (Haute Papier, from $21)For the family that likes to play together…a double set of playing cards, in a variety of color options. (Mark & Graham, $49)
Hopefully, this gives you a few ideas for the people on your list this year. Make the list and check it twice!
