If you’re looking for unique personalized gifts to give this year, look no further than this post. I’m partnering with Minted to share my favorite gift picks from them this season. From photo gifts to personalized stockings, you’ll find something for everyone on your list.
Can you believe that we are already in the thick of the holiday season? I swear this year really went faster than other years, especially since last year seemed to last a full decade.
Every year I publish an interactive gift guide magazine, and one category that’s often requested is for personalized gifts. So this year, I’m dedicating a full post to great personalized gifts you can find exclusively on Minted.com.
If you’re not familiar with Minted, here’s the 4-1-1:
They’re an online marketplace with curated stationery, art, and more from independent artists from the US and beyond. When you purchase anything from Minted, you’re also supporting the business of the designer that designed your item.

My Favorite Unique Personalized Gifts from Minted
Personalized Art Gifts
Personalized Heart Photo Gift
This heart art print is a great gift for parents, in-laws, or grandparents. It would also be a cute gift for newlyweds or new parents.
It’s made up of tiny individual photos printed to look like Polaroid pictures in the shape of a heart.
Whether you share photos from a specific trip or just memories from years past, this is definitely a unique, personalized gift with an extra-special touch.
Choose various print sizes and if you want the art framed or not.
Foil Map Art Print
A great gift for new homeowners, newlyweds, or anyone who has recently moved.
I think that this foil map print is such a cute, non-kitschy or overdone way to display love for a city or state.
Customize it as broad (by country) or as narrow (major cities) as you want, then select between gold, silver, or rose gold foil.
Available with or without a frame, in multiple sizes.
Personalized Bags and Linens
Customizable Snap Tote
I love this snap top tote for literally everyone. I’m giving this to my mom for her yoga mat and water bottle.
Since tote bags are so versatile, this is a safe personalized gift for friends, co-workers, and family members (including teens).
You can find a generic tote anywhere, but this tote from Minted takes things up a notch. There are a ton of different prints to fit the personality of whoever you’re gifting, and you can add a personalized leather patch with their name on it.
At under $35, it’s budget-friendly with a big impact.
Duffel Bag and Dopp Kit
Revenge travel is back! People are craving travel and re-connecting now more than ever, so why not have your recipient travel in style?
Just like the tote bag above, this duffel bag comes in a ton of different prints with a leather patch if you want to add a name or initials.
Add a matching dopp kit for a complete travel set.
I got this for myself and took it for a long weekend to the mountains. It carries quite a bit!
Printed Apron and Mitts
Printed oven mitts and coordinating, personalized aprons make a great gift for the foodie, chef, or hostess in your circle.
If your gift recipient has little ones, you can also find coordinating children’s aprons to match.
Personalized stationery is always a chic gift for moms and BFFs.
Call me old-fashioned, but there’s really something I love so much about receiving a hand-written letter. Remember pen pals? I think we should bring that back. Snail mail is fun, people!
