Christmas will once again soon be upon us, and that means it’s time to start thinking about what to buy the loved ones in your life. Unfortunately, gifting in the festive season can so easily lose its meaning, dissolving into an exercise in consumerism instead of demonstrating gratitude and affection. The good news is that by opting for more personalized gifts you can reclaim the true meaning of Christmas. You’ll even find suggestions for some of the best personalized Christmas gifts for 2021 in our post below.
Monogrammed Memory Box
Monogramming is a simple and classy way of making any gift more personalized and can be achieved on just about every item from towels to iPhones. (They engrave the back). However, one of the most meaningful ways to give a monogrammed gift is to choose something that will grow in significance over the years. In particular, we are talking about a memory box, which is a container used by the recipient to keep their most precious items and keepsakes safe. This means every time they go to look at their most valuable possessions they will be reminded of your and your connection.
A Cameo Message
A thoroughly modern twist on the personalized gift is to use the platform Cameo to request a video message from one of your loved ones’ most favorite celebrities. Indeed, beforehand you can ask the celeb to use the name of the person the message is for as well as include a personalized greeting such as ‘Happy Christmas.’ Many of the celebs which include a wide range of people from film, TV, and social media will also say their catchphrase or something they are well known for making it even more fun and customized to your needs.

A personalized book
There are many options for personalized books on the market, the first of which is to get a photo book created.
