What sites do you recommend for personalized gifts?
December 15, 2015 6:31 AM   Subscribe

I'd like to put in a bit more thought present-wise this year for my friends and family, and have been scouring the net for a site that lets you personalize gifts with custom-made images (memes, cats, artwork, etc). I've found a few, but there's not many reviews so I'm not sure which are reputable. Does anyone have some gift-personalization sites that they could recommend? I'd also love to learn of any sites that personalize unique gifts other than the usual coffee mugs and t-shirts.

Zazzle has great customer service, frequent sales, and offers everything from decanters to coasters to flasks and phone cases. I've ordered wrapping paper, map posters, and mugs and been satisfied. I discovered a printing error on a mug (it happens) and they're shipping a replacement- I just had to send in a photo.

Madewell will monogram any of their leather goods (mostly purses and keychains) with three initials. West Elm also monograms some of their products, like keepsake boxes.

I have had good results getting personalized doormats from personalizationmall.com.

Not on the High street is great, but it is UK based... not sure where you are.

I've used photobox.co.uk to make personalised calendars and placemats for friends and family, as well as mugs, and they've usually turned out well.

I've also had good luck with Zazzle. I got my dad a cute mug with an inside joke on it as a birthday gift once. I also use a Zazzle mug every day at work.

For future reference, you can use stitchtagram to use instagram stuff or your other photos into pillows, bags, ottomans, etc..
