An inkling of personal touch goes a long way. It can be the difference between an average gift and a special gift. Christmas is rolling down the turnpike, making it crunch time for those sans gifts for loved ones. Here are 13 ideas for man, woman and child.
Your Photos on Canvas from Canvas Discount
There are normal pictures, and then there’s canvas art. For struggling boyfriends, this is a safe and easy bet. You can choose different size variations, and it’s a guarantee the creation will be within budget: Canvas Discount is knocking down their prices by 65 percent, and you can knock those prices down further with a 30 percent off code and free shipping (with orders over $75).
Solitaire Birthstone Ring from Red Envelope
Guys, all it takes is remembering your girlfriend’s birthday. But you could ask a family member as a last resort. Head to Red Envelope for this treasure. A powerful statement with both a cushion-cut birthstone and her name within, the quality and meaning should exceed the price point, which is the goal of any serious gift-giver.
Personalized M&Ms from My M&Ms
The stereotype is that women love chocolate. In this case, the stereotype will ring true. You can accompany your primary gift with a baggie of personalized M&Ms. They carry little messages on them—kind of like your name on a grain of sand, except you can actually read these. You can even include images and clip-art from your computer. Little charming messages will bode well, and you will satiate two urges: the need for chocolate and the need for something sweet.
Mod Circle iPhone 5 Wood Cell Phone Skin from Personalization Mall
Your lady is glued to her iPhone for indefinite, lengthy periods of time anyway, so why not protect it with her name engraved on a wooden veneer? For only $12.95, you can support her smartphone obsession with this pretty and practical addition. Personalization Mall is offering 20 percent off at the moment, dropping the price down to a cool $10.36.
Set of Four Red Wine Glasses with Monogram from Things Remembered
She lives and dies by the red. Glasses come and go, but a uniquely personalized set will be remembered. No, it’s not narcissistic to have your name engraved on your glass. It’s important to stake your territory with something as vital as vin rouge. Four glasses for $40 is a bargain, but you can drop the price to a mere $34 with a 15 percent discount.
Pocket Knife from Personal Creations
A sturdy knife should bolster his manhood and engraved initials on a wooden grip will give a sense of ownership. A popular pick from Personal Creations, it comes in a case and with the low price of only $19.99. Utilizing a code could get you 15 percent off (available for one more week).
Warning Sign from Personal Creations
His solitude is important to him. He’ll love it and put it up right away. The sign measures 12” by 18” and Personal Creations will add up to 15 characters. You can change the word ‘garage’ to suit any sort of man cave your guy spends inordinate amounts of time in. Only $24.99, it’s an exclusive to Personal Creations.
Golf Flask + Accessories from Red Envelope
You’re supporting his love of golf and his love of an occasional swig. A flask is always a welcomed gift to any man, but one with a leather casing and a message, year and location will score you a hole in one. If you purchase now, it’ll arrive Dec. 18 with a signature gift box included.
Hat Template from Zazzle
You can add a picture from your first date, a special memory, or his favorite art on this stylish trucker hat. You can add text and choose from four colors—white, yellow, blue and black. From Zazzle, the damage is just $14.95, but with a 25 percent discount (ending tonight), you can shave the price down to $11.25.
Personalized Playing Cards from Snapfish
Game night just got a little bit sweeter. Traditional-style cards can be customized with personal photos. If your guy likes to play a round of Poker every now and then, this makes an awesome gift. For just $19.99 a set of 52 comes with a clear plastic case.
A Call from Santa from Portable North Pole
It doesn’t have to be just a call—Portable North Pole can also send a video of Santa himself talking to your loved ones. As personalized as it gets, you’ll bring the magic of Christmas closer to your kids, going beyond just the excitement of presents. Digital products are available for 10 percent off with a code.
Rag Dolls from Personal Creations
Ninety-six percent of people rated these positively, and you can enter a name up to nine characters and have it embroidered on the doll’s dress. A perfect and gentle companion for your little girl, eschew the voluptuous Barbie and go with something classy. Get an extra 25 percent off your order today from Personal Creations and take the price down to a manageable $22.50.
Personalized Book from Pottery Barn
Your little guy or girl can be the star of their own fictional narrative. Simply enter a name before checking out and they can read about pirate ship adventures or princess fairy tales with them as the protagonist. There are dozens of alternatives depending on your son or daughter’s preference, and each one hovers around the price of $40.
