Holiday Season is my favourite time of the year. This means Holiday Gift Guide time. I can really have fun with creating and purchasing the perfect gift for someone I love and buying presents for someone else is, in my opinion, more enjoyable than for yourself.
I didn’t do any Holiday gift guides last year, and I really wanted to do them, so that’s why I’m going to do them this year. The first Holiday gift Guide is about Personalised Gifts. I’m a big sucker for everything personalised but I also really love to give it to somebody else. Personalised gifts are so thoughtful and unique. In this post, I will show you a few of my favourite personalised gifts.
1. Home decorations – Mapiful
I have been working with Mapiful since last month, and I had the change to create my own Mapiful. I think this gift is unique and thoughtful and a perfect way to implement a personal story or place in your home decor. You can choose between a Classic Mapiful and a Star Mapiful. After that, you can create your design and pick out your favourite frame. Because it’s the holiday season, they have 25% off when you buy three or more items.
2. Bags – Roocy The Label
I met the amazing girls from Roocy the label on the ‘Mode Fabriek’ last Summer. They immediately inspired me with their story and products. They make personalised bags. The products are all handmade in Marrakesh and personalised here in the Netherlands. I got one of their bags, ‘The Envelop bag’ and use it all the time. They just launched a new model, ‘The Moon Bag’. If you are looking for a personalised fashion item for your girlfriend, sister, mother or colleague, this is the one. I linked all the designs down below. Oh, and if you subscribe to their newsletter, you get 10% off your first order.
3. Phone Accessories – Coyé
I recently found a small Amsterdam based brand on Instagram with high-quality and personalisable accessories for your phone, headphones and laptops. The brand is called Coyé. With their products, your device becomes a personal accessory, and they are also really elegant and luxurious. The perfect Christmas gift. I linked a few of my favourites designs down below.
4. Jewellery – Rosefield
When I think about personalised gifts, jewellery is something that comes to mind right away. I think that jewellery is a personal gift even if it’s not personalisable. For me, jewellery is something with a story or meaning behind it. This is why jewellery is always a personal thing for me. But you know I’m a sucker for everything personalised, so if jewellery can be personalised, I love it even more. Rosefield has some gorgeous pieces that who can, like necklaces and rings. I linked my favourite pieces down below. They all come in gold, silver and rosé gold.
5. Health – Chilly’s
Water is so important. Drinking enough water can make you feel so much better. This makes giving a water bottle as a present a thoughtful and healthy gift. What makes it even more fun? Personalisable water bottles and Chilly’s has them. I linked a few of my favourite designs down below.
Make your own Personal Gift
If you are not able or if you agreed with your loved ones not to buy presents for each other during the holidays, but you still want to do something then I have a few ideas for you.
You can make or buy a postcard and write a personal message. You can also craft a Christmas ornament with a special message or craft one that has a story behind it that only the person you made it for understands. I also love to design a family game that you can play during the holidays, think about games with questions or a quartet. You can make the sets with personal memories, accomplishments, quotes and things like that.
What are you going to do with the holidays and what is on your wishlist? Let me know in the comments down below. I would also love to know if you liked the first Holiday Gift Guide?
