Personalized Gift Ideas For Every Member of Your Family

If you want to take your gift-giving to the next level, know that sending personalized gifts is both thoughtful and unique. Moreover, customizing a gift shows the recipient you care about them, and they no doubt will be pleased to receive a sentimental keepsake.

Of course, shopping for those closest to you isn’t always easy, but there is a personalized gift out there for every member of the family. Here are some top picks for moms, dads, sisters, and brothers alike:

For Moms: A Photo Calendar

Personalized photo calendars are the perfect gift idea for moms — and she will feel especially proud to showcase her calendar, particularly when each month is filled with memories of her children or grandchildren.

Photo calendars are a fully customizable gift idea, giving you the opportunity to change the color scheme and size, upload photos, and add special occasions to dates throughout the year. When you present your mom with a photo calendar full of past memories, it’s easy for such a gift to become a new yearly tradition.

For Dads: Photo Art

Whether they’re fickle about or indifferent to receiving gifts, we all know it can be difficult buying something for dad. Instead of yet another pair of boring socks this year, get your dad something more meaningful, like a customized framed photo or piece of artwork that he can hang in his office, man cave, or other favorite space. 

There are specific “dad” designs to consider, with room for photos of his children, and you can customize the artwork by modifying color schemes and adding text. Alternatively, your dad might have a proud moment you want to celebrate, such as the time he caught a big fish or won a tennis trophy. Consider a black and white print for a timeless finish.

For Sisters: Carry-All Slouch Tote

Do you have a sister who likes to get out and about? Or, perhaps she’s artistic, academic, or athletic and needs somewhere to store her gear? If the answer is yes, a personalized carry-all slouch tote or duffel bag will be the perfect gift idea. Look for a bag with a print that suits her look to achieve the ultimate fashion statement. Your sister’s name can be custom embossed onto the tag to give it a more personal touch. Or, if you’re feeling creative, purchase a blank canvas bag and experiment with waterproof fabric pens. 

For Brothers: Monthly Planner

Help your brother get organized in style with a personalized monthly planner or notebook. The cover can feature a custom print or photo to make it more fun, sentimental, and/or artistic. Mix it up by swapping color schemes and fonts while choosing between a calendar or pages that are lined, blank, or gridded. 

The inside cover can include a family recipe or photo with a quote or funny saying, and you could add special dates (such as your birthday) that you want him to remember. Suitable for any age, younger brothers will be able to use this for school, while older siblings can organize their work or study schedule.

A Gift for Every Member of the Family

When deciding on gift ideas this year, consider something more personal in nature, as these gifts tend to come from the heart and are suitable for every member of the family. Mom will love a photo calendar, while dad will smile every time he looks at his framed photo wall art. Meantime, your sister will feel spoiled when you gift her a personalized bag and your brother will no doubt be more productive with his own stationery or planner.
