CUYANA TRAVEL CASE
You get two Argentinian leather zip pouches (perfect for keeping small stuff organized in your bag or toting toiletries), one of them monogrammed in gold letters. We'll be giving the bigger, personalized one to top tier friends and the smaller one to B-list friends. (What? We're just being honest.)

We recently showed this to a roomful of editors and practically every single one shouted, "Where do I get that?!" And we can't really blame their rabid enthusiasm. The bracelet is engraved with the exact coordinates of a special location (first date, place where a child was born, proposal spot, etc.) on the front and a personalized message on the inside. This editor has already dropped a hint on her boyfriend.

YELLOWSMITH CHARM NECKLACE
Get someone a necklace with her name on it and you risk that she already has one just like it. Get her a necklace with a personalized hashtag or charm (you can send the company a photo or item – anything! – and they'll turn it into a piece of jewelry) and you guarantee she doesn't own it.
