While it seems like an impossible task to find gifts for your loved ones that are: a) unique and personal, b) actually useful, and c) not insanely expensive, we found the answer to your gift-giving problems. Though you have to admit receiving any kind of present is a great feeling, there’s something extra thoughtful about a personalized gift. The easiest way to check all these boxes? Choose a gift that can be customized in some way, whether that’s a simple initial monogram or personalized photo gift.
As someone who loves a good custom piece (I’ve personally purchased multiple items on this list), I can attest to how special it feels to own something with a personal touch. But custom doesn’t always mean a ton of $$$ — from gifts under $20 to more luxurious presents your mom might appreciate, here are the coolest personalized holiday gifts on the market right now.
P.S. I fully support you buying a gift for yourself, while you’re at it. No judgement here. 😉
