Holiday Gift Guide 2015: Personalized Gifts

You know I love giving beauty gifts, but sometimes it’s fun to give something different.  Personalized gifts let the recipient know that you are thinking about them so much you made something just for them!

Below are three great ideas to make online and have printed and sent to you. is a really cool website that makes custom products easy for anyone to create.

I received codes to create gifts for my honest review.  I have made two projects so far and really enjoyed creating them.

Above are the two projects I have completed.  The first one is a 50×60 fleece blanket.  I placed photos of my family and pets on it.  The photos ended up arranged differently than I wanted,  but that was probably user error.  It’s very cool up close!  The project on the right is a photo album.  It is so pretty, the photos look amazing in it!

I highly recommend this site.  Plus, when you visit it, you get a coupon for 60% off of your first purchase.  If you buy something, you also get great coupons by email.

I received a free code to create this and it was so easy.  I just had to put in the name I wanted to use and then a dedication.  I received it and it’s really nice.  My recipient will enjoy coloring it!


AwesomeBox is a fun new twist on group gift-giving that will surprise, delight and warm the heart of someone special. AwesomeBox captures those moments that no one can buy — the best memories, stories and photos packaged in a one-of-a-kind printed gift that everyone creates together.

Invite friends, colleagues and family to share unique memories of your someone special — photos, inside jokes, poems or moments — that when put together, paint wonderful stories. They can upload tributes, memories, messages and photos, and AwesomeBox turns those into beautifully printed cards that weave a personalized tale of your memory, vividly showing the recipient just how special they are.

It’s easy to start and takes just minutes to make! Friends and family upload messages and photos — even from Facebook — AwesomeBox then transforms those favorite moments into colorful double-sided cards that are then stacked in a stylish box and shipped to the AwesomeBox recipient.

I haven’t seen one of these in person, but I think it’s a very original idea. I don’t think it would take too long to make and the person receiving it would love it forever!
