Personalised Christmas presents that won’t break the bank


From a monogrammed reusable water bottle to waterproof speakers you can customise, these personalised gifts will show you really care.

Christmas is the best time of the year, but it’s deciding on gifts that can turn you into a bit of a Grinch. Don’t worry, we understand, which is why the body+soul editorial team is presenting you with our ultimate Christmas Gift Guide collection. Whether you’re buying a gift for a family member, friend or colleague, we’ll be sharing the best ideas you need to know about – you might even find a few things to add to your Santa wish list.

Yeah, a normal gift is a nice gesture, but add a touch of personalisation to it and it’ll take a mere “thank you” to an excited “I love you!”

But because we know you don’t want to be breaking the bank trying to be the most thoughtful gift-giver with your personalised gifts, we’ve rounded up ones that are reasonably priced. Just make sure to order them now so they arrive before Christmas.

Why: Sleep is the key to good health, yes? So show them you really care with a silk sleep mask from the brand that’s loved by A-list celebs (think Drew Barrymore, Hilary Duff and the Kardashians).

Why: Firstly choose from three different coloured water bottles, then pick from five different fonts and finally choose what letters you want added. Its double-walled stainless steel design and vacuum-insulated feature means this fancy BPA-free bottle will keep your liquids cold for 24 hours – and hot for 12.

What: Ultimate Ears myBOOM3 ($199.95 at Ultimate Ears)

Why: It’s completely waterproof, has a 15-hour battery life and produces a 360 degree sound. You can add custom text, colours and even fabric to this speaker that will turn your average Christmas pool party into a par-TAY.

What: Jasmine and Will Linen Short Pyjama Set ($149 at Jasmine and Will)

Why: You can get up to 12 letters monogrammed on the front pocket (or 6 for the cuff). And because linen is highly absorbent and a good conductor of heat, it’ll keep you (well, your gift receiver) cool all summer long.

What: PHILÉ Home Cashmere Blanket ($350 at PHILÉ)

Why: This one is definitely more on the expensive side, but nothing speaks love more than a gift made from 100 per cent Mongolian cashmere. You can choose to add up to three upper case initials from seven different thread colours. It’s the gift that’ll keep that special someone warm all year long.

What: The Daily Edited Clear Travel Case ($99.95 at The Daily Edited)

Why: From the gym bag to the luggage, they’ll be sure to have this beauty case on hand wherever they go.
