How to win Christmas? By taking the time to seek out a personalised gift. Nothing says "I really took the time to pick something I thought you'd love" than choosing something with an initial, custom colourway or a special message. Besides, getting involved in the creative process is really quite fun. Also, leading a gift's artistic direction is rewarding and makes handing that gift over even more pleasurable.
Many brands and retailers have been getting in on the personalisation act. At the top of anyone's list should be Chloé's Nile bag, which is available with a choice of three different letter styles adorned on it. But there are much more affordable options to be discovered, such as Papier's almost inexhaustible range of pretty notebooks and jewellery options. So get scrolling to create a stylish gift this year.
