I love picking out unique personalized gifts for people on my gift list. Here, you’ll find both personalized gifts for him and monogrammed gifts for her, as well as budget personalized gifts under $25!
Being from and living in the South, I can appreciate a good monogrammed or personalized gift. You know us Southern girls – we’ll throw a monogram on just about anything we can!
I love giving personalized gifts for Christmas because they are are both unique and meaningful. Don’t get me wrong, I also love giving useful gifts and gifts that will spoil the gift recipient a bit too.
If it wasn’t already obvious, I’m a lover of all kinds of gift giving.
I’ve compiled a list here of unique personalized gifts for him, her, kids, couples and also personalized gifts that are under $25. And don’t worry, not every gift on here has to be personalized with a monogram – I’ve got some variety for ya! Either way, these gift options will show the gift recipient that you really went the extra mile for them.

Cheap Personalized Gifts Under $25
Personalized Hand Stamped Key Necklace
I love the not-so-fancy feel of this personalized necklace from What on Earth. The key adds a special touch without it being too “froo-froo,” shall we say? This item would be a special gift for a guy or gal! It doesn’t have to be personalized with just initials either! You can also customize it with a word.
Custom Colorful Name Keychain with Tassel
This one is for those gals in your life who love a touch of color and a fun tassel. I can’t think of many gals on my own gift list who wouldn’t like one of these! Customize it with their name, monogram or a word of your choice.
P.S. – What on Earth (where the key necklace is from) is a new-to-me store I discovered this year and I absolutely love them! They are a great source for unique gifts!
State Jumbo Mug
Personalized gifts don’t always have to sport a name! Make a gift personal by giving them something that nods to their home state or one of their favorite states to visit! These mugs do a fantastic job of depicting characteristics of each of the 50 states and at only $6 a piece, they are a steal!
Horoscope Secret Message Necklace
Another great out-of-the-box personalized gift here – a horoscope necklace! Each necklace sports a pull-out bar that is inscribed with their sign and three characteristics of that sign. The sleek style of this necklace would work with just about anyone’s personal style.
Customized Pop Socket
These little gems are great for keeping a comfortable grip on your phone and now you can get a customized one with a photo of your choosing on it! How fun is that? As you can see from the photo above, these are perfect for pet lovers!
Personalized Leather Bracelet
For the more rugged guy or gal on your list that isn’t into all that bling, here’s a great gift option that’s still sentimental – a personalized leather bracelet. You can decide what message to put on it and if it just goes on the inside of the bracelet or outside!
This flask can be customized in a variety of ways. Opt for the monogram shown above (my personal favorite) or have the monogram put into a different style, font, single initial, their name and more.
This keychain is less than $10 and can be customized with any coordinates you want. This is a great gift for a kiddo who’s about to fly the coop or for a friend who is moving away.
State Tie Bar
You can get one of these State Tie Bars starting at $15. Opt for the gift recipient’s home state or maybe the state where they went to college. You can also put a personalized hidden message on the back of this tie bar.
Leather Monogrammed Bracelet
One of these leather monogrammed bracelets will set you back about $23. I love how the leather paired with the fancy monogram creates a kind of leather and lace feel. Does that make any sense at all?
Monogrammed Turkish towel
I love Turkish towels because they are great bath, beach and pool towels. They’re even better when they come with a gorgeous monogram on them! This one is only $27 and comes in a variety of colors and monogram styles.
Personalized Gifts for Kids
Crayon Name Set
This is such a fun gift for kids! Even I want a set of crayons that spell out my name! The multi-colored effect these sport will always leave them creating colorful masterpieces as well!
My kiddo actually got one of these books last year and she loved it. It puts your kid right there in the story! And they think it’s so cool that there’s a book written all about them!
Fun meets learning with this one! This gift is perfect for toddlers and preschoolers on your gift list. They’ll learn letters and how to spell their name at the same time!
Personalized Gifts for Him
Engraved Gifts for Men on Your List
Authentic Personalized Ammo Box
This ammo box is a real, used military ammo box. It might have a few scratches and dings, but that will only add to the character. This is a great gift that can perform double duty by giving your gift recipient a great place to store special mementos instead of that falling apart shoe box they are currently using.
Walnut Striped Valet Tray
Help the man in your life remember where they put their wallet and keys with this striped and initialed valet tray. Monogramming is included for free and you can choose from the green and navy stripe or a navy and white stripe for a more nautical look.
Monogrammed Wood Watch
If they are a bit on the rugged side, this wood watch might be the perfect gift for them. You can have it personalized with their initials on the clock face and then with something else, if you prefer, on the back.
Leather Watch Case
How about giving them a great place to store their watch, tie clips, cuff links and everything else they typically just throw on top of the dresser? This watch box (a male’s version of a jewelry boxes 😆) can be personalized with their initials and even comes with a key.
Personalized Leather Wallet
Leather wallets are always a great gift for any guy on your list. This one will keep him from having bulky pockets, while still holding his cash and cards. Get it personalized with his initials as well.
Monogrammed Tie Bar & Cuff Links
A shiny monogrammed tie bar and matching cuff links will never go out of style and will always keep him looking sharp. You can get this entire set for right around $30.
Monogrammed Gifts for Her
A few personalized gifts for the women in your life…
Monogram Leather Tote
This is the tote that will work with any outfit and any style. The classic faux leather style will never date. It can work as an everyday handbag, for work, running errands and more.
Birthstone Stacking Rings
I love this take on birthstone rings. This is a perfect gift for any moms on your list and even if she has 6 kids – these rings will still stack beautifully together on her finger!
Monogrammed Tissue Box Cover
I adore this monogrammed tissue box cover and officially want one for every single box of tissues in my house. You can choose from different materials, monogram fonts and colors.
This canteen is perfect for those gals who are always taking their water or coffee with them. It keeps drinks cold for up to 24 hours or drinks hot for up to 12 hours. Have this canteen personalized with a special message, a person’s name or monogram!
State Heart Necklace
I love this take on state necklaces. This is a perfect gift for those gals who like to keep reminders of home close at heart. You can choose the color of leather the heart is wrapped in as well.
Monogrammed Cocktail Napkins
These monogrammed cocktail napkins will never go out of style. Just as with the tissue box cover, you can choose from different colors of napkins as well as styles and colors of monograms!
Personalized Gifts for Couples
Knock out two people on your list with one gift….
Family Name Sign
This one is perfect for younger and older couples alike! It makes a great gift for new couples celebrating their first Christmas together or for older couples to remind them of all the years they’ve spent together.
Customized Wax Seal Stamp
Call me old school, but I adore a wax seal on an envelope. Treat a couple on your list to one of these wax seal gift sets. Customize it with their monogram or initials! Lots of different styles to choose from!
Personalized Night Sky Star Map
Now this one is really cool. Select a date that’s special to the couple on your list (wedding date, first time they met, a child’s birth, etc.) then have this art made that depicts exactly what the sky looked like on that day!
Personalized Home Ornament
You guys know I’m all about giving a nod to special homes whenever I can. This is of course perfect for folks who’ve just purchased a new home, but putting a picture of their first home on it would also make a great gift!
Super Sentimental Personalized Gifts
These might require tissues…
Don’t give this gift without a box of tissues. Write a letter to someone special on your holiday list and then have it put on a blanket where they can literally wrap themselves up with your words.
Handwritten Recipe Platter
You’ve seen the cutting boards with the handwritten recipes on them, here’s the platter version. Honestly, I think this one might get more use than the cutting board. Let’s be honest, most of us wouldn’t feel too good about cutting into Grandma’s recipe.
This engraved handwriting bracelet might cause the gift recipient to need a tissue or two after they open it. With this bracelet, you can send in real, actual handwriting and have it put onto a bracelet. This is perfect for someone who has lost someone close to them recently or for mamas and daddies to have their handwriting put on a bracelet for a teenager whose about to leave the nest.
Will you be getting anyone on your list a personalized gift this holiday season?
I hope this list helps you find the perfect item just for them!
