The holidays may look a little different this year (though hopefully a bit brighter than last), but that doesn't mean you can't make loved ones and friends feel special, whether celebrating near or far. I think we can all agree that one of the best ways to make someone feel loved is to offer personalized gifts.

So we gathered gifts take your thoughtfulness to a new level—some even allow customized colors, fabrics and textures. There's truly something for everyone.

Here are our favorite customized gifts for everyone on your list—kids and adults alike:



1. Pine & Pink notecard set

Is there anything better than pretty personalized notecards? We love this set by former Vogue editors Lucinda Chambers and Serena Hood that’s on a warm white paper with a matte eggshell finish. Gorgeous!



2. Personalized Pet Portraits

The family pet deserves some wall real estate too! We just adore the personalized modern pet portraits from Animalist. Choose from line, form or abstract renditions of over 90 dog and cat breeds (along with color and size) to create a stylish piece of artwork that looks gorgeous in any room of the house.


3. Customizable Loafers

Preppy with a dash of personality, the leather driving loafers from Riomar are a wardrobe staple. Not only do they instantly class up any ‘fit you throw together, but the colorful bearings are totally swappable. They offer a wide collection of colors, collegiate options and even custom monograms to create a look that’s one-of-a-kind–just like the lucky giftee.

8. The Zip-Top Transport Carryall

We’re living in times when most of us rarely venture outside, so why would anyone want to invest in a handbag? But if she’s simple and timeless, she’ll love having this tote around even if it’s just to run errands around town. This leather bag has three interior pockets, including one with a zipper to keep her keys and phone at the ready.
