Personalizing your gifts is a fun way to add a special touch. You don’t have to use someone’s name – you can use their initials, their nickname or a fun phrase from one of their favourite movies or books.
Although the gifts take a little bit of extra preplanning, they are ideal presents for people who have almost everything they already need. Here are some online shops that offer personalization services:
