One of my favourite ways to gift is by creating a personalised treat for the presentee (gift receiver, doncha know?). It’s such a simple yet thoughtful way to create a present that they’ll hopefully treasure forever and it’s just something a little different from the usual. I’ve hand-picked a selection of personalised treats that are ideal for your loved ones, just read on.
Maison Margiela Replica Fragrance – Selfridges
The iconic Maison Margiela Replica perfume is beloved across the fashion landscape with each scent evoking a particular memory or scene. They’re oh so luxe and this season, Selfridges are offering a service where you can create your own custom label, featuring the recipient’s name and a personal memory. Honestly, wouldn’t this be the absolute dream?!
The Slender Blend (£19.99) – Protein World
Although protein shakes and drinks are a little controversial, Protein World’s offerings seem to be pretty great with a whole range of blends depending on your health and fitness goals. For Christmas, they’ve released a personalised label service where you can create your own label to pop on their popular The Slender Blend. The drink comes in several flavours and is ideal as a post-workout snack with 24g whey protein and 25 vitamins and minerals. It’s vegetarian-friendly and gluten-free, too!

Paperback Photo Album (£17) – Cheerz
You’ll already know of my love for Cheerz’s photo printing services, so when I spied their Paperback Photo Album, I just had to put one together as a gift to my sister. The online service (do it through their website or app!) allows you to drag and drop photographs from your personal files, Facebook or Instagram accounts and arrange them in beautiful formats along with your very own captions. You could get creative and write a story for your little one, narrate your own love story for your other half, or, create a stunning photo travel album. I popped some photos from our sister vacay to Copenhagen in one and can’t WAIT to show her. PS. Delivery is oh so speedy which is a bonus!

‘All The Things I Wish For You’ Children’s Storybook (£18.99) – Papier
A few years ago when my baby cousin was just beginning to learn to read and in the throes of his Thomas the Tank Engine obsession, I gifted him (or technically my auntie and uncle) a personalised storybook. You simply add the desired name and you’ll receive a glossy picture book that’ll be a dreamy keepsake. There are plenty out there but this year I wanted to recommend the Papier offering here. Too cute.
Monogram Leather Top Zip Bag (£31) – Warehouse
I included the cardholder version of this in my gift guide for her last week but couldn’t resist adding the bag to this one. Warehouse’s monogramming service is so affordable, allowing you to add initials in debossing, gold or white to small leather goods. This zip top bag looks and feels luxe and with a little monogram to it, will be a special addition to their accessory kit.
Personalised Hessian Santa Sacks – Harrow & Green
Last but not least, I wanted to include these hessian Santa sacks from Harrow & Green. I had one of these made for Harvey last year and it went down SO well on Instagram and so here is your reminder to pick one up! They run a little service at Selfridges on their Christmas floor as well as their own website AND an Etsy store with prices starting at around £8 for a little stocking and £25 (I think) for a traditional Santa sack. The quality is absolutely incredible and they look so special underneath the tree.
