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 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!

Cheap Personalized Gifts (Under $25!)
For the Wine Drinker
This wine glass from Things Remembered is just two ounces shy of holding 30 ounces of wine. That’s a lot of wine. It can be engraved on both the front and back and best of all – it’s dishwasher safe! We all know how long it takes something around here to get washed that isn’t dishwasher safe. 😉 This oversized bad boy also has really great reviews! The cost – $10! You can snag an extra 10% off through 11/14 with code A242!
Classy Initial Tote
This classic black and white tote from Photobook will never go out of style! You can opt to have it personalized on just one side or both and with or without the gift recipient’s full name. For me, I think I might just go with the last name initial and maybe just the full initials of the gift recipient underneath it. Totally up to you though! Either way, this tote will only set you back $18, but right now it will only set you back $11 when you use the code NOV18 to get 40% off!
This flask can also be customized in a variety of ways. You can opt for the monogram shown above (my personal favorite) or you can have the monogram put into a different style or font, a single initial, their name put on it and more. You can also choose to have the flask engraved on just the front or the back.
This one might require tissues.
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. This bracelet is $20.
Remind them of their roots.
This coordinates keychain is less than $10 and can be customized with any coordinates you want. Again, this is a great gift for a kiddo who’s about to fly the coop or for a friend who is moving away. Use code MIA2018 to get 15% off these keychains or anything in this shop!
A nod to their home state.
You can get one of these State Tie Bars starting at $15. You could 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. The Texas bar is here and there are more states available here.
Classic Monogram with a Rugged Twist
One of these leather mongrammed bracelets will set you back about $20. 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?
Personalized Gifts for Him
Keep him classy.
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. Use code LIFESTYLE to get an extra 10% off this set and anything else in Tipo’s Creations Etsy Shop.
A Unique Way to Store Mementos
This ammo box is actually a real, used military ammo box. Yes, it might have a few scratches and dings, but that will only add to the character. This ammo box 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.
A Snazzy Drop Point
Help them 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. Find it here.
Bye bye to bulky pockets.
Leather wallets will always be a great gift for any guy on your list. This one will keep him from having bulky pockets, while still holding all his cash and cards. You can get it personalized with his initials as well.
Wood you happen to know the time?
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.
Speaking of watches…
How about giving them a great place to store their watch, tie clips, cuff links and everything else that they typically just throw on top of the dresser? This watch box and storage case has great reviews, can be personalized with their initials and even comes with a key.
Monogrammed Gifts for Her
The towel that does it all.
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 monogrammed Turkish towel is only $26 and you can choose from a variety of colors and monogram styles. I have one of these myself from this exact same Etsy shop and absolutely love it. If you’d rather go with a smaller hand towel version, they have those as well right here for less than $15!
Classic Initial Pillow
Again, you can never go wrong with black and white. I love this pillow because it could go with practically any decor and you can customize as you wish. As with the bag, I think I would do this pillow with the large single initial as shown above, but then underneath, I would do either the gift recipient’s monogram or make it a couple gift and put the couple’s monogram there – remember it goes lady’s first initial, last name initial, man’s first initial. 🙂 At least, that’s how Martha says you’re supposed to do it. Get 40% off this pillow with code NOV18 – that makes it just $21 right now!
A reminder of home.
This is a perfect gift for those gals who like to keep reminders of home close at heart. You can have the heart cutout placed anywhere on the state. The Oklahoma necklace shown above is here, but the rest of the states can be found here.
Blowing their nose in style.
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 here! Use code 10OFF to get 10% off the tissue box cover and anything else in this shop!
Keep ’em toasty with a scarf.
This blanket scarf is a whopping 50″ x 50″ so there will be countless ways your gift recipient can wear it! All the different colors used in the plaid design will make it work with multiple different outfits as well. Have the scarf personalized with their monogram! Get 10% off through 11/14 with code A242!
Drink in style.
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 and well as styles and colors of monograms right here! Use code 10OFF to get 10% off!
Keep it cold or hot, but always personalized.
This canteen is perfect for those gals who are always taking their water or coffee with them. It keeps cold drinks cold for up to 24 hours or hot drinks hot for up to 12 hours. Have this canteen personalized with a special message, a person’s name or monogram! Use code A242 to get 10% off through 11/14!
For when they’re monkeying around…
Aren’t those monkeys just so fun? I love the bright pop of color and the fun touch the monkeys lend to this basic tote bag! Choose from different styles and colors here! Use code 10OFF to get 10% off!
