A Custom Gift Guide for Everyone on Your List

It’s so exciting to come up with the perfect holiday gift for everyone on your list–but it’s never one size fits all. So how do you find something that makes everyone feel like you picked it out just for them? Go custom! Here at Custom Ink, we have so many t-shirts, accessories, face masks, and unique products that you can make one of a kind. To help you get started, below is our custom gift guide for everyone on your list.

Friends & That Special Someone


Keeping it classic is always a good idea–so one gift we love is a t-shirt. Personalize some for your friend group, book club, or one for your boo with a romantic saying or graphic. We have to nod to the Hanes Nano-T (it was our group tee of the year for 2019). It comes in so many great colors, is super soft and comfortable, and is available in sizes to fit everyone on your list.

Wine gift set

Tis the season for libations! Keep the party going well after the holidays by gifting the Laser Engraved 4 Piece Bamboo Wine Gift Set. It has a wine stopper, foil cutter, bottle opener, and pourer. Your foodie group or wine-loving friends will be so excited for this gift. And the laser engraving gives it a chic, high-end look.

Pom pom beanies

You can never have too many hats in the chillier months, and a pom pom beanie is the perfect accessory for matching style with function. The New Era Fleece Lined Pom Pom Beanie has heather stripes and a dual-colored pom. Its warm fleece lining will keep you warm while hunting for a Christmas tree or for smooching your love at midnight on New Year’s Eve. Give these to your group of best friends in your fave color, or put a festive graphic to represent your group’s favorite sports team.




Receiving a hoodie for the holidays will give anyone the cozy vibes. We’d curl up by the fire in a New Era Sueded Full Zip T‑shirt Hoodie. It’s lightweight but still great for laying with your other favorite holiday apparel. It has a lived-in softness with a vintage look that anyone would be happy to get. Give these to you fam for your cookie baking contest or for gathering together to watch a holiday movie marathon.


All the holiday celebrations mean lots of drinks around. Give a gift that’ll keep on giving long after the party is over. The Laser Engraved Black Marble and Wood Coaster Set is a classy gift, crafted from marble and wood. The laser engraving elevates the look and we could totally see your family initial or crest on these. They’re perfect for everyone to take home to be reminded of their loved ones throughout the year.

Wine tumblers

Sensing a theme here? We just have so many great drinkware picks this season! The Laser Etched 12 oz. Insulated Tumbler Gift Set includes four wine tumblers made from 18/8 grade stainless steel. One of these will keep your drink cold for 24 hours or if you choose to use it hot, for six hours. It even has an easy sipping push on lid for if you want to take your drinks on the go. This is a great gift to personalize with your last name or initial. We could see these at your next picnic or, if your family is outdoorsy, camping or outdoor event!


Coworkers & Gift Swaps


It seems like everyone’s got a cool watch nowadays–so make someone feel extra special and give them a watch that’s one of a kind. The Gunmetal Watch with Nylon Band is a classic style with a hint of sport thanks to the band. It’s water resistant and has a Japanese quartz movement. This would be a great choice to gift your coworkers so you can all match. Or, personalize it with an artsy design for your gift swap.


Everyone is stoked when they unwrap a scarf, so imagine how great it is when it’s a custom scarf? The Sportsman Solid Knit Scarf comes in tons of great colors like pink and heather royal. It’s soft and since it’s one size fits all, it’s an easy and thoughtful gift for your group of coworkers.

Stuffed animals

Is there anything more “holiday” than toys? Make someone feel like a kid again by giving them a personalized Gund Baby Bear. This little guy has an embroidered nose and eyes and your design can go right on his t-shirt–which comes in a bunch of fun colors. We could see him wearing your company logo, or a funny work saying for all of your colleagues.



Wood cutting board

Show your employees you care with this sharp looking gift. The Laser Engraved Black Marble and Wood Cutting Board is such a unique pick this holiday season. It’s classic with natural materials like wood and marble, and your laser engraved logo will add extra flair. Your employees will love this gift–especially if you’re in the food or hospitality industries.

Commuter tote

We swoon for the Field & Co. 16 oz. Cotton Canvas Commuter Tote. This trendy bag has a main compartment for all your commuting necessities, with a patterned lining and a pocket to protect your laptop or tablet. The shoulder strap even adjusts to fit anyone, and the stylish colors are the perfect backdrop for your logo. Your workers will be saying “best employer ever” all year long.

Pen set

Something your employees will want to hold on to? The Laser Engraved Cutter & Buck Midlands Pen Set. This set has a ballpoint and a roller ball pen with black ink. The brushed nickel finish is a classic canvas for your laser engraved logo. The only issue with these is that everyone will love them so much, they’ll have to hide them in their desks to keep them from getting swiped!

Custom face masks

This year, the holidays might look a little different, but it doesn’t mean you can’t customize a thoughtful and useful gift. There’s so many different options for face masks out there, and we’re big fans of our Customized Super Comfort Cotton Face Mask. It’s lightweight, reusable, and comfortable. It has a tailored fit with adjustable ear toggles, a moldable nose bridge, and soft elastic ear loops to make it a great fit for anyone on your list. It even has an antimicrobial finish and a pocket for adding a filter. This mask really does it all and with your custom design, would make a great gift this year.

      Can we still order sweatshirts and hoodies that were done for Saving Grace Animal Rescue of MD last year during a fund raiser

    • Lissa Eckert

      Hey Carolyn! It doesn’t look like Saving Grace is running a Fundraiser at this time, but we can absolutely help you with a custom design! Would you like me to pass your information along to our Sales Team?
