The best personalised Christmas gifts to give this year
Let’s get straight into it! Here are all the top personalised Christmas gifts, so you can wrap up your present-giving this year.
Personalised Christmas stockings
OK, so strictly speaking some might not consider this a gift – more like a fancy gift wrapping, perhaps. But it is something that many people really want for Christmas. It helps decorate the house, and provides a lovely place to put all those little gifts. After all, they are called stocking fillers.
There are lots of personalized Christmas stockings to choose from. You might also like a bigger personalised Santa sack – instead or in addition to the stocking. Personalised Xmas stockings come in various sizes and designs, from bright red and green to more muted patterns. So they’re ideal for adults as well as kids.
They’re great to give as a personalised first Christmas gift too, as they could even be used for the recipient’s entire life. Whoever you have in mind, a personalised Christmas stocking makes a great present. They also double up as personalised family Christmas decorations to brighten up the home.
Personalised Christmas tree decorations
Again, this is one of those personalised Christmas present ideas that doubles up as a festive decoration. As it can be used year after year, it acts as an annual reminder of the person that gave this gift.
You can buy personalised Christmas decorations in the form of baubles bearing a single name, or there are personalised tree decorations suitable for couples or families, as they can feature a number of names. Often these feature cartoon type characters in Santa hats, with the name of each person displayed on the headwear trim.
There are some pretty snowflake-shaped personalised Christmas ornaments for the tree too. Or for an alternative take on the tree and decoration theme you could even opt for a family tree wall chart, cushion cover or print. These items can be displayed in the home all year round.

A personalised notebook
Stationery always makes top personalized Christmas gifts for friends who like to scribble or doodle. In the technological age we live in, it can be a refreshing change to write something down using a pen and paper. Just as so many generations have done before us.
A new notebook will always be well received by any stationery fan – and there are lots of them out there. Emblazon their name across it and they’ll probable love you for life. Especially as no one else at home or work would have any excuse for using it.
There are some pretty pink options ready to be customised with the name of your choice – pick a heart pattern or a marble print with gold initial and name. Whether they prefer horses, graphics, flowers, slogans or something super simple, there is literally a notebook out there with their name on it.
Personalised wall art
Kids in particular love to see their name in print. So why not grasp that theme and find the perfect piece of wall art to make their bedroom really feel like a space to call their own?
There are several types of custom wall art to choose from. You can order a canvas decorated with their name in a range of rainbow colours, or opt for a wall decal featuring their favourite movie, TV or book character. As well as their own name, of course. Perfect for anyone who dreams of becoming Batman or an Avenger.
Other kinds of personalised wall art are also available – especially for new parents. They make great Christmas gifts for those whose homes would welcome an injection of colour and character.
A personalised T-shirt
A custom printed t-shirt makes a good change from the festive jumper. Especially when you live in Australia and Christmas happens right in the middle of summer.
You can add anything you like to the front of a t-shirt, and can also select the right size. There are various colours to choose from too. Whether it’s a treasured photo or a slogan that sums them up perfectly, why not let your imagination run wild?
There are existing slogan ideas for various people too – from cricket fans to retirees, little sisters, dog dads, gamers and more. A customised t-shirt is one of those Christmas gift ideas that can be enjoyed all year round.
Personalised dog collars
It might not be for everyone – but if someone who know is devoted to their doggy then a new collar makes a great gift to pop into their personalised dog Christmas stocking.
The number of people who search for items like personalised dog tree decorations might really surprise you. If you think you may know one of them, then they’d definitely be delighted to receive a gift for their pooch.
If there’s any truth in the laws of supply and demand, then you only need to take a look at all the personalised dog collar options on Amazon to see how popular these items are. There’s pink or flowery collars for females as well as plenty of more masculine or understated designs.
A custom dog collar makes a great gift for the dog owner who has everything. Or even to give to the animal themselves – though they might need some help when putting it on.
A personalised cheese board
Yes, custom cheese boards are a thing. Instagram fans in particular love them, as they can personalise every image of their latest culinary creations by making sure the cheese board – or chopping board – is in shot every time.
As it’s an item that often stays out in the kitchen – whether that’s because it’s drying, between uses or being deliberately displayed – it gives the home that personal touch too.
Pick between styles with and without handles, and in all sorts of shapes and sizes. A ‘Mr and Mrs’ version can make a particularly good Christmas gift for newlyweds, or go for your own choice of name, slogan and date.
Why not gift a personalised choppoing board or cheese board this year? If you’re feeling generous, we love the ‘Picnic at Ascot’ set. It’s the gift that can bring culinary pleasure all year long.
