Christmas Gift Guide 2022: 11 Bespoke Gift Ideas They’ll Really Love | Knowledge and joy

The season of Christmas gifts is upon us! I am so excited to start sharing this year’s Wit & Delight Christmas Gift Guides. We’ll be sharing the rest of our gift guides over the next week so you can have them all handy for reference as you start your Christmas shopping. First and foremost: custom gift ideas!

I love giving a meaningful, personalized gift – whether the recipient is someone I’ve known for years or someone I’m just getting to know better. This kind of gift can be tailored specifically to their personality, or it can be a monogrammed item that brings a simple, personal touch to a classic piece. Custom gift ideas are also a great way to include an inside joke you share with the gift recipient.

Below I share eleven custom gift ideas in a variety of categories and price ranges.

Stay tuned for more of my handpicked Christmas gift ideas in the coming days!
