Personalised Christmas gifts Australia
Enter the world of personalised gifts to make a heartfelt moment this Christmas.

Christmas shopping can be hard at the best of times, especially if you don't know what to get someone. Don't even mention Secret Santa.

So if you're stumped with ideas on what to get people you love or are wanting to add something a bit more special to a gift in mind, we have the perfect solution for you.

Personalised gifts have always been a mark of care and thoughtfulness, adding the personal touch to an item that is specifically designed for the recipient making it completely unique and one of a kind. 

While it's not a new style of gifting, its heartfelt value has become a popular trend with friends, families and loved ones with more people than ever wanting to make their special someone feel like the only person in the world. 

From jewellery to glassware, to clothes and stationery, we list some of the best personalised gifts you can present this Christmas.


Jewellery is always a safe option for your loved one and makes custom pieces easy. Necklaces are the most versatile option suiting most people, with chains available in gold, silver and rose gold. Opt for a simpler, minimalistic approach with one initial from Kirstin Ash at The Iconic or their whole name in your choice of cursive at Olive + Piper. Looking for something smaller? You can also shop initial earrings from Karen Walker available from David Jones.

Personalising special glassware is a fun and meaningful way to gift your loved one something they'll never forget. While you can choose anything from wine glasses to steins, we recommend going smooth with a scotch set with each glass engraved of their initials. Opting for the decanter as well? Why not choose a quote that means something to both of you, so you can share in the moment together. Shop Myer to scour their wide range of quality crystal from Waterford and sets from Luigi Bormioli.

Bags and clutches

With the silly season well on its way, why not gift the perfect accessory for the much-deserved night out or afternoon tipple with friends? Add a unique element to a chic clutch from Olga Berg by adding your loved ones' initials on the clasp and monogrammed on the side. Available in black, navy, cream, beige, cream, pink and gold, this clutch is perfect to make your special someone feel cared for and loved. Plus, you'll be able to find it should it ever be misplaced! We've all been there.

Phone cases

Perfect as a Secret Santa gift, personalised phone cases are a fail-safe gift for people of all ages. From personalised colours, text and designs to monogrammed initials, you can let you creativity run wild at Casetify. Simply choose the phone you're designing for and begin your design, choosing every element to represent your person in mind. You can even choose the level of protection the phone case offers should it be dropped. It really is a very good gift.

This one's for the techy in the group who is ALWAYS losing stuff. There's always one. Make the subtle (or not so subtle) hint this Christmas with a personalised Air Tag from Apple. You can not only add initials to the Air Tag but emojis as well, or both! The Air Tag uses a secure Bluetooth signal that can only be detected by the owner to track keys, phones, bags - whatever it's attached to. Plus, they're only $45 which is a steal from Apple. There's even a posh Hermes tag cover, if you want to up and ante. But you don't have to stop there. You can organise to have headphones, laptops, ipads and a range of other tech personalised for two gifts in one. Why not?
