Ah! It’s the season of gifting again, and also the season of wrecking our brains thinking of what to get for that special someone – be it a partner, best friend, or parents.

Everybody loves a personalised gift, and no, we’re not just talking about monograms. Here are five best customisable gifts that you’ll be able to purchase and get it on time for Christmas. And while you’re at it, you may want to get one for yourself.

Burberry monogramming services

More than just on leather goods, Burberry has expanded its personalisation options for its cashmere scarves, small accessories, trench coats, and rucksacks. For their world renowned trench coats, customers can add up to three initials, with a selection of 15 thread colours. Monogramming services are available in-store, and online, with no extra charge.




Rejoice sneakerheads, for NikeID is finally available in Singapore. Gone are the days where we’d have to head to Hong Kong or USA to get our favourite steppers customised. Available online, the NikeID platform allows customers to select  colours, materials, and even midsoles to the brand’s popular models such as Air Max Zero, Flyknit, and Roshe One. You design it, they make it, and get it delivered to you in three to five weeks – just in time for Christmas!


Personalised Lego figures

Know someone who loves Lego, and would possibly love a Lego version of themselves? Here’s the fun part: you can either upload an image of your friend if you want something more personalised (a tattoo, a specific outfit, etc.), or simply choose different components to build your special Lego figure. Custom orders take two weeks to dispatch for a delivery fee of just £3.95 (S$6.85).


M.A.C custom palette

This one’s for make up junkies who love having a wide range of eyeshadow shades at their disposal. For a customisable palette of 15 shades at US$101 (S$141), customers can choose from over 100 colours and finishes on M.A.C’s website. Now, here’s a test to see if you know which colours your special someone prefers.



Guerlain personalised perfume

Labeled as the ‘Haute Couture of Perfume’, immerse yourself in the luxury of creating your very own fragrance at Guerlain’s exclusive perfume-only boutique at 392 rue Saint Honoré in Paris. For €33,000 (S$50,515), you’ll receive a Baccarat crystal bottle of 500ml, 20 glass quadrilobé bottles of 60ml, and 3 glass quadrilobé of 30ml.
