One of the biggest gifting trend we’re seeing is customisation and personalisation. Gifts tailored to an individual or group are incredibly thoughtful, as they usually show you spent time organising and planning the present well in advance of the day.

Most importantly, though, in my opinion, personalised gifts mean the recipient has basically zero chance of regifting them, unless they happen to know someone with their same name or initials, that is.

Customised and personalised gifts make great options for presents this holiday season. So, from luggage you can get customised with your loved ones’ pet’s face, to a pendant you can personalise with their fingerprint, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite gifts you can get tailored for friends and family this holiday season.

The Dairy Personalised Phone Case, Starting at $69.95

Phone cases make great gifts, so it’s worth the effort to find out what kind of phone your loved one has. Then, hop on The Dairy’s website, select the model and design their new favourite phone case. They make cases for iPhones as well as Samsung Galaxy and Google Pixel phones.
