Or it can be a home accessory or even a gadget that can be personalized in some way. Regardless, there are options for personalized gifts for every type of person and every age range on your list. Here are some ideas:
Let’s face it, kids can be tough to buy for. They probably want toys, but how do you know what toy to get them? That’s the issue, especially if the child is not yours or you are not especially close to them, such as with a friend’s or acquaintances child. This is where a personalized gift can be ideal. A personalized gift shows you went the extra step to have a gift customized just for them. For kids, a fun and appropriate gift would be a silicone bracelet with their name engraved on the side. You can choose options in blue or pink depending whether they are a girl or boy. A silicone bracelet is ideal as a gift for even smaller children, since it is durable, inexpensive and quite cute. They’ll be ecstatic to wear a bracelet with their name on it to school!
For teens, there are many more options in personalized gifts. For girls, consider a personalized necklace. There are many options when it comes to personalized necklaces.

For senior women, consider giving a personalized jewelry box.

Medical ID jewelry is available in a surprising amount of styles, from bracelets to necklaces with pendants. Both styles can be appropriate for senior men or women. You can choose a more masculine style in stainless steel or leather for the men. For women, there are more feminine styles, some even in pink!
