Cute & Customized: The Best Personalized Gifts
AHEIRLOOM CUTTING BOARD
State pride doesn't have to be cheesy – that is, unless you want it to be. Slice brie, arrange grapes or serve up some local fave fare on these adorable state-shaped cutting boards. Our favorite part? The teensy heart carved to mark your loved one's hometown.
MINNIE & EMMA IPHONE CASE
Ensure you'll be bumped to the "favorite contacts" list by gifting one of these pretty, preppy Minnie amp Emma iPhone cases. (Hilary Duff loves hers, and we've got them for half off!) Whether you opt to do just initials or splash her whole name across the back, she'll love the personal touch (not to mention the protection from the inevitable phone-onto-pavement incident).
WEST ELM CHAMPAGNE BUCKET
Is she the hostess with the most-est? Show her how much you love her soirees with this festive champagne bucket. The high shine and elegant monogram makes it look like you dropped megabucks, plus the classic design goes with any décor. Also ideal for the girl who likes to know which bottle of champagne belongs to her.
Our style director (and former beauty editor) Andrea swears by this cult-fave gadget for girls who take skin care seriously. Treat your own beauty guru to the only thing better than a Clarisonic: a Clarisonic in her favorite color embossed with her name.
ARIEL GORDON NECKLACE
GIANNA ROSE SOAP
Skip the standard soap-and-lotion gift set in favor of this luxe, beautifully wrapped bar engraved with her initial. It looks like you spent lots of time picking it out just for her – though we won't tell if you keep one of each letter stashed in a closet for emergencies.
SILHOUETTE BLUE STATIONERY
We spend all day on email, so now more than ever, it's so nice to send and receive handwritten notes – especially when the stationery is as lovely as Silhouette Blue's vintage designs. You can even splurge on two sets of the cards – they're half off with our exclusive deal!
ESTEE LAUDER COMPACT
She'll feel like a glamorous movie star when she pulls this glossy engraved compact out of her purse to reapply her lipstick. Inscribe up to twelve characters free – plenty of space for a nickname, inside joke, or even "Hi Pretty!"
C. WONDER GLOVES
Our December issue is packed with amazing C. Wonder picks (see page 220 for the whole rundown) but the ones we're coveting most are these adorable, touchscreen-sensitive monogrammed gloves. As if we couldn't love the celeb-fave (oh hey, Katie Holmes) store any more, they're offering 20% off with our exclusive code "PSWHOL".
It's impossible to resist shopping for yourself while browsing the personalized pieces in this trendy, well-priced online jewelry boutique(Taylor Swift is among the many celeb fans). We love this dainty bracelet for a mom or grandma – it's a sweet way to stay on her mind.
The gift that (literally) keeps on giving: a subscription to an "of the month" club. Save the beef jerky and beer for the boys and treat your girlfriends to something a little more feminine. MeUndies are guaranteed to put a smile on her face every time she opens up the box with the lacy little things customized to her undergarment preferences.
Fact: everything looks better through an Instagram filter. That rule applies to wristwear too – just check out these clever watches. Pick your favorite Insta pic for the face, select a band to match and give a gift that invokes fond memories (or gets a giggle) whenever your friend checks the time.
