It’s hard to believe the holiday shopping season is already upon us! I’ve been curating our selection of gift ideas for the past couple of weeks and today I’m so excited to share our first gift guide with you all.

First up is our roundup of customized gift options. From a scallop trim notecard set, to a sweatshirt with custom collar lettering, to a customized book for the kiddos in your life, there’s something for everything here.

I hope you enjoy scrolling through my picks. Stay tuned for our next roundup of budget-friendly gifts this Friday!

I think the idea of gifting custom stationery is so meaningful. It’s one of those things we don’t usually think of until we need it, and having beautifully designed stationery at the ready whenever there’s a “thank you” or “just thinking of you” note to be sent would make a world of difference. I loved this notecard set from Papier so much as I was gathering products for this year’s gift guides that I ordered a set for myself!

P.S. Papier is having a sale for 15% off everything right now! It ends end of day today, November 3.

The cursive lettering on this sweatshirt is so beautiful and dainty. It’s such a versatile gift for anyone on your list! That goes for kiddos too—they offer a toddler-sized sweatshirt as well.

Joe and I have a couple of these zip top totes and love them. They’re so handy to have on hand for transporting odds and ends (and make a really sturdy grocery tote too!).

The price is $31 with an additional $8 for monogramming. BUT if you order today, you can take advantage of the current Lands’ End sale—the navy color bag pictured above is half off!

This customized doormat would make a great gift for anyone who recently moved or is looking to freshen up their entry. It comes in a couple of different styles, so be sure to browse the options on the Etsy shop! AND it’s currently on sale for 15% off.

This book would make the sweetest gift for the kids in your life. The book will be printed with your name preference on the cover and on each page. Story time is about to get a lot more meaningful.
