Personalize it

December 22, 2010

I always feel badly for folks who share a birthday with Jesus.  Some of my very favorite people in the world are born this month and yet, everyone gets so caught up in Christmas and New Year's Eve that these birthdays can get pushed aside.   Getting them something personalized means in the middle of the holiday chaos, you thought of them.  It takes more effort to do one of these gifts but they're worth it.  Here's a few things to consider...

Monogrammed vase from's etsy shop. 

Custom silhouette image from Jenny Lee Fowler's etsy shop also charm me. Sure, silhouettes have had their day but she does modern takes on this traditional art at a great price point.

Another way to say "I didn't forget you, Miss December birthday" is ordering up some of these yummy cookies from Flourpot cookies  Adorable, to hand out at a birthday lunch.  

Or a personalized wooden bangle or bowl from Paloma's Nest.  (Don't worry, year can be excluded if you stop counting at 30).  

Or consider a custom watercolor of their home, if that is their pride and joy.  

Or of their beloved pooch from Doghouse Pet Portraits.  This artist's work feels fresh and captures each dog's spirit.  

Or personalized stationery from Rifle Paper Co.

Now go order the cake...
