Racking your brain trying to find the perfect gift for someone really special, worrying no choice can convey exactly how much you care?

As the saying goes, it's the thought that counts. And nothing says "I thought long and hard about this" like a personalized gift.

Whether it's a photo calendar or necklace, these customized gifts are so unique they could only be for that special someone.

When we release our gift guides, we make sure all prices are current. But prices change frequently (yay, deals!), so there’s a chance the prices are now different than they were the day of publication.

Personalized Gift Ideas for Her

  • 1. Personalized Portrait Stationery, $35, Etsy

For the woman who loves the art of the handwritten note, she'll especially appreciate this custom stationery set printed with illustrated likenesses of her and the whole family.

  • 2. Boombox Personalized Memory Box, $100+, Boombox

Boombox was created by Christina Geist, Willie Geist's wife, when she was looking for the perfect personalized gift to celebrate a friend's birthday. The idea behind the box is that you can fill it with notes from loved ones before giving the sentimental surprise to Mom. The company's platform makes it really easy to invite friends to participate in the gift, so it's the perfect present to share.
