We’ve got nothing against tried-and-true customized gifts—cuff links, wine glasses, pet portraits, or a monogrammed phone case, to name a few—but the very best personalized gifts are unexpected.

But a pick from our list of the best personalized gifts that’s made just for them? That’s going above and beyond. Whether you’re shopping for wedding gifts, a next-level birthday gift, or Christmas gifts, you’ll find more than enough reasons to skip the gift cards this year.
