How are you planning to celebrate the holidays this year?
Are you earmarking recipes and pulling out decorations as you plan a big family gathering? Traveling to a holiday bash? Or are you more of the cozy-up-at-home-for-the-holidays type?
No matter how you choose to celebrate the holidays this year, chances are you're looking for special gifts to give to the important people in your life and show them how much you care.
And while it's totally fine to give golf clubs, skincare sets, and socks year after year, sometimes you want to prepare something truly unique.
That's why we're bringing you 7 of our favorite personalized Christmas gift ideas that work for absolutely everyone on your Christmas gift list.
These are our best-selling items year after year, and our customers write in to tell us how much fun they are to give as gifts.
First up, we have the best last-minute gift and a perfect gift for anyone on your list: the personalized tumbler.
#1 - Personalized Tumbler
Perfect for Everyone Else On Your List
Name a person who doesn't drink water, coffee, or soda on a daily basis. Go ahead, we'll wait.
You'll be hard-pressed to find a person who doesn't need a tumbler in their life. But plain tumblers just don't quite cut it.
Enter the personalized tumbler. You can choose a size, color, and design that perfectly matches your recipient.
Better yet, you can order the entire family matching Christmas tumblers as a memory of your 2023 holiday get-together.
If cooking is more your gift recipient's style, this next gift idea is perfect for them.
Great for the Avid Cook in Your Life
There's nothing like receiving a gift that's both useful and beautiful.
And for the person in your life that loves to cook, a well-crafted cutting board engraved with their name ticks both of those boxes.
We have not one, but two beautiful cutting board designs to delight the person on your list who loves to cook or entertain.
First up is the wooden cutting board, customizable with over a dozen personalized designs for an individual, couple, or family. These come in your choice of bamboo, walnut, or maple wood.
Or choose the olive wood resin serving board with beautiful sea-blue resin set inside rustic, live-edge wood. This board also features several design options and space for personal details.
Your gift recipient will not only love the gift the moment they open it, but they'll cherish it as part of their kitchenware collection for decades to come.
A Surprise for Your Christmas Party Host
This next gift gives your recipient two surprises: first, they’ll enjoy the delicious charcuterie spread you've prepared for their holiday party, and second, they’ll realize that the board itself has been personalized just for them.
This beautifully-made marble charcuterie board features three ceramic serving dishes, three small wooden serving spoons, and four cheese knives for the ultimate party spread.
With multiple designs to choose from, and the option to add names and special dates to the engraving, this gift idea will make a lasting impression on your holiday party host.
#4 - Engraved BBQ Set
For the Guy Who Loves to Grill
For the men (and women) on your list who love to grill, this next gift idea will take their love for cooking to a new level.
Everything they need for grilling is neatly packed into a maple wood box, engraved with their name. Make your recipient laugh with fun designs like "King (or Queen) of the Grill" and "The Grillfather."
And when we say it has everything you need to grill, we mean everything. Inside, you'll find a spatula, tongs, brush, fork, knife, 4 steel skewers, and one heat glove, all with loops to make it easy for your recipient to hang and organize their tools.
Nurture an Adventurous Spirit
A good pocket knife is a trusty companion you can rely on wherever you go.
This personalized pocket knife kicks it up a notch with an engraving of the gift recipient’s name.
So who on your Christmas list has a love for adventure? Consider picking them up one of these handy knives in a natural wood, rosewood, or black finish.
Each knife includes a built-in bottle and can opener, serrated blade, seat belt cutter, and belt clip. With this, your recipient will be able to stay safe no matter where they tread.
#6 - Engraved Memory Box
Capture a Year of Memories for a Child
Every year of a child's life contains special memories, milestones, and achievements. They're fun to look back on and remember how much the child has grown.
But as the years go by, those memories fade. It becomes difficult to remember the highlights of each year, or the special seasons you went through.
And that's why we love memory boxes, like this one in dark walnut wood engraved with the recipient’s name.
Fill these boxes with letters to a child, memories of a year, baby keepsakes, and more. What a special way to celebrate someone at Christmas time.

#7 - Personalized Whiskey Decanter
A Sophisticated Holiday Gift
The decanter adds a sophisticated look to any kitchen, office, or home bar, perfect for relaxing evenings at home or holiday get-togethers.
Choose from more than a dozen designs and personalize with an initial or name for a special gift that won't be easily forgotten.
