One way to give the perfect gift is to personalize it. Whether is something you make or something you buy, it’s always more fun when it’s something just for them.

There are great shops for your personalized items, like Christmas gifts from Getting Personal, an M&T Sponsor. Kids always love to have their names pop up in all kinds of ways. You can create a personalized storybook with their name all throughout, super cool.

Or maybe you want to make a handmade pillow or bath towel. You can add that special touch by embroidering their name or initials. Maybe you want to make some tile necklaces with paper that has their initial on it.

Here’s a fun gift idea from Desirée of The 36th Avenue. I love these personalized clay necklaces. They look so easy and fun to make. Perfect for little girl friend gifts!

Any way you do it, I highly recommend personalizing your gifts this Holiday season. It can show those you love you spent a little more time trying to make them feel special.
