Personalized- A personalized gift always feels extra special. You can take any photo and put it on about anything these days. Mugs, shirts, pillows, printed art, coasters, candles, koozies, the list goes on. Or, get their initials monogrammed on cuff links, key chains, golf balls, whiskey glasses, even phone cases. Giving something with such a personal touch makes them think of you the instant they look at it. Lindsay loves Shutterfly and right now they have up to 40% off.
