Savvy gift-givers know: a thoughtful present goes a long way, but a thoughtful present that you dreamed up weeks (or months) in advance takes gift-giving to another level. On Etsy, there’s no shortage of ways to show you really, really care — from custom cuff links that enclose vintage maps of a favorite vacation spot to a hand-painted ring modeled after 18th-century “lover’s eye” charms. Sellers are already taking custom orders for the holidays (and the wait lists will eventually fill up), so if a personalized present is on your mind, start scrolling now.
Commission necklaces, rings, bracelets and more with the recipient’s name, initials, signature, or portrait.
Order up a custom clutch, embossed-leather guitar strap, or an embroidered pencil case.
