There’s something fantastic about a product with your name on it. Think about it — how many of you had a novelty license plate from your family beach trip in the summer? Or, a keychain with your name on it? Even companies like Land’s End and L.L. Bean know the importance of a well-placed monogram. When something is personalized, you know it’s yours and yours alone.
Personalized gifts can be beneficial as an adult, as well. If you just moved into a new home, personalized items may be just the reminder you need that this place is officially yours. And if you happen to like your name, all the better. It’ll help any product stand out.
If you’re still on the lookout for that perfect gift, why not get your recipient something personalized? With sites like Etsy, it’s easier than ever. You don’t even have to spend a ton of money. And selfishly, it’s something you know they won’t straight-up return. Even though you want everyone to love the gifts you give, there’s always a weird feeling when you have to include a return receipt. Because a holiday gift should be something you really envisioned them loving. If they’re going to return it, you might as well gifted cash.
Etsy has always been a reliable place to get merchandise that’s much more special than something you’d find in a chain store. Here are 11 of the best-personalized items you can find on Etsy, all priced at under $50.
