Say my name: the best personalised and monogrammed gifts

Why are Christmas presents such a struggle? It always seems like everyone on your list is so hard to buy for and already has everything they need. Then, when you do find something, it just doesn't feel thoughful or personal enough.

But what could feel more thoughtful and personal than a present with the giftee's name emblazoned on the front?

Personalised gifts are one of the biggest Christmas trends this year and it's no surprise. Whether it's a jar of Nutella or a beautiful clutch, everyone from the ages of 8 to 80 loves a present that's just for them. Thanks to the popularity in personalisation, many of our favourite stores have come on board with their own form of customisation.

Here are some of our favourites you can shop right now, so you can finally tick off that never-ending Christmas list.

For Mum

Mum is finally easy to buy for! Choose between jewellery or bag charms with her initial, or go one step further with a 2019 diary, coin purse, phone case, pyjamas or a beautiful handbag – all of which can be monogrammed at different stores this year.

For Dad

Treat your dad to a set of pyjamas with his name embroidered on the front, a cardholder that he'll use every day, a luggage tag for all of his work travel, his very own skin care (so he can stop stealing yours) or a keepsake watch that can be engraved. Then there's personalised Tim Tams. How can you possibly go wrong with personalised Tim Tams?
