With Cyber Monday deals starting well before the actual Monday (and Amazon wishlists being amassed year round), it’s easy to just one-click your way to seasonal and mass-produced items to gift during the holiday season. But according to the Deloitte Consumer Review, 36 percent of consumers, including 50 percent of millennial and Gen Z shoppers, are interested in purchasing customized products.
It's clear that people crave a more personalized approach to gifting, so consider putting a special touch on your purchases this year. From framed photos to monogrammed blankets, personalization isn’t a new idea, but new advances in custom printing technology make it easier than ever to create hyper-specific items that recipients will not only use, but also cherish. Whether you’re seeking a festive hostess gift that goes beyond a basic bottle of wine or an original method of displaying children’s artwork, there’s a beautiful and tasteful way to give a truly personal present. Here, a roundup of the most unique customized finds for everyone on your list.
