Personalized Gifts to Buy Early this Year

I never have been and never will be a last minute holiday shopper. Instead, I like to do most of my shopping in November so I can sit back, relax and enjoy holiday season rather than stressing about who I'm buying what for. For the special people in my life, something personalized always adds a really thoughtful touch.

As a rule of thumb, I always tackle any personalized gifts early since monogramming and/or embossing can take a few extra weeks. I rounded up a list of my favorite handpicked personalized gifts if you need some ideas!

When it comes to gift giving, I always try to be really intentional with who I'm buying what for, and while I create these guides to give YOU thoughtful gift ideas, I also create them for me and end up shopping off of each list for family & friends! I hope these are helpful!

Embossed laptop case | Travel case trio | Nameplate phone case | Keyring charger duo | Leather travel case set | Delicate nameplate necklace | Canvas zip-top travel tote | Stoney Clover travel pouch | Tech folio | Mama sweatshirt

We get so much use out of our LL Bean Canvas zip-top travel totes and always use them for long weekends or road trips. It's an under-$50 gift that can be customized and even filled with some smaller gifts for something a little extra special!

I got this monogrammed canvas pouch set for my assistant last year for my assistant which she loved! Great for travel or everyday storage.

If you're looking for a (just) under $50 gift, this diamond pouch is a great option.

This is one of my favorite initial necklaces. If you're looking for a more budget-friendly option, I also love this one.

If you need a cute couple gift for the dog-lover, this is a perfect option.
