It's not too late!
Despite our best intentions to get all of our holiday shopping done by October, December has a way of sneaking up on us. But if you think your plan to get special, personalized gifts for everyone on your list is nearly impossible now, think again. All of these gifts come with customized touches that will make it look like you commissioned them months ago—yet they'll still arrive in time for Christmas. Monograms, personalized hand-lettering, and custom engraving guarantee these gifts will make a great impression.
For the guy who has everything and wants nothing, give him a classy wooden tray for his change and keys that will spruce up his minimalist entryway. For an extra-special gift, present the tray with a monogrammed leather keychain.
