Forget DIY! Planning personalized holiday gifts is much easier than it looks! We're giving you a jumpstart with this holiday gift guide of personalized jewelry that can be ready and wrapped in minutes.

We may be biased, but we think fine jewelry is the perfect holiday gift, especially for last-minute shoppers. You can select thoughtful pieces that become infinitely more than an accessory when they reflect your loved one's personality or special milestones and memories. 

Whether you have a few weeks to plan or a few days to pick up a gift, visit your local jeweler for the perfect personalized holiday gifts.

How to select the most personal last-minute gifts:


Birthstone jewelry is a simple holiday gift option. Choose a jewelry piece that accentuates the stone. If you aren't sure what birthstone to get, visit our Birthstone Jewelry Guide. Your local jeweler will have birthstone jewelry for everyone on your holiday gift list.

Personal Messages

Jewelry that is already engraved with words of love or display a special sentiment are a no-brainer for personalized gifts. Just select a piece that says it right ("Love," "Mom")  and you are out the door. Some jewelry engraving is not a timely process; many jewelers will feature pieces in store that are ready to be engraved on the spot or within a couple days. 

Initials & Monograms

Initial jewelry is a great last-minute gift for anyone because it feels custom and made just for them. Her initials, both of your initials, or initials that stand for something meaningful to your loved one are easy to find and very personal. Alex Woo has a great collection of "mini" and "little" letters that come in yellow gold, sterling silver and diamonds.

Personal Charms
Gifting a personal charm that has special meaning to her -- or to your relationship -- is extremely thoughtful. If you want to give a personalized holiday gift but are not sure what she will like, give her a piece of fine jewelry that she can customize after she receives it. Charm bracelets are a classic and stylish gift idea. Start her off with a bracelet and few charms that you think represent her. Over the years, she will be able to add on more charms of her own, so it's the gift that keeps on giving!
