Holiday Gift Guide: Meaningful and Personalized Gift Ideas

We all have that one relative that’s impossible to buy gifts for. Full of unique and personal items, this holiday gift guide is for those that are hard to please!

Perfect for the Storyteller of Your Family

StoryWorth makes it easy and fun for family members to share stories with loved ones, with weekly emailed story prompts – questions you’ve never thought to ask. At the end of the year, they’ll get the stories bound in a beautiful hardcover book. Strengthen your bond as you get to know them in a whole new way!

Plus, all Blurb users score $20 off instantly when they buy this holiday season. Get started!

Relive the Past Century Through Photos

Life Magazine Staff Photographer Bill Ray created the ultimate coffee table book that takes us from a small Nebraska town to New York and Life Magazine assignments, covering movie stars, presidents, wars, Elvis, Andy Warhol, Muhammad Ali and more.

Display Your Greatest Treasures

Minted is one of our go-to sites for creative holiday gifts! Their line of pinboards is a great way to display holiday photos, notes, and more. Plus, it makes the best gift for everyone on your list. Choose from adorable pre-styled designs or create your own custom pinboard.

Sweet and Meaningful

Framebridge takes the headache out of custom framing. Personalize their “mini” with gold or silver foil-printed text right on the mat. We love this gift idea for special events or meaningful quotes. Add a monogram, hashtag, birthdate, or message to a 5×5 photo in a 11×11 frame with a 2.5″ mat.


Give Them All The Feels

When I stumbled upon MadeByJade’s Etsy shop, I fell into a dreamy gift haze and wanted to buy something for everyone on my list. My top pick is the Custom Family Tree. It’s made from quality white card, mounted on a colored card of your choice and finished in a frame color of your choice. You can choose from white, black or wood. Jade hand cuts every piece, making your holiday gift extra special!   

Make a Memoir Book
