Do you know any kids with unique names? I gave my three kids unique names, and I absolutely love them. It means, however, that they don’t often find ready-made things with their names printed on them or hear their names in books or movies.
This makes giving them personalized gifts so much more special. Since they rarely see their names printed anywhere – they get extremely excited when they do!
Christmas is one of the best times to give personalized gifts, not just to kids with unique names, but to all kids. At a time of the year when everyone is exchanging gifts, getting something personalized means someone put a little extra thought and effort into that gift to make sure it was right for you.
Etsy.com has some of the best options for personalized gifts. Here’s my top ten!

1. Name Puzzle
This name puzzle from JandPWoodProducts on Etsy would make a great gift for a toddler or preschooler! It’s not only a great find for kids with unique names, but for anyone, as it helps kids identify the letters in their own name. As they get older, this would be a beautiful bedroom decoration and keepsake.
I LOVE these personalized fidget necklaces from QuinnandLane on Etsy! Kids have a nasty habit of putting things in their mouths and these silicone necklaces are designed for just that. My daughter loves to chew on her hair, and my son, his nails, but with one of these they’ll be able to fidget safely and not develop any bad habits.
How much would your kids love to see their name in lights?! These adorable light up letters from SimplySpecialBoutiq on Etsy would make the cutest night light that kids could cherish forever! It could double as a decoration feature for their birthday parties and with so many sophisticated color options, it would still look great enough to take to college! A great gift for kids of any age!
With winter comes hoards of gear that often gets lost in the shuffle. My kids are currently wearing generic hats and gloves with a sticker label on the inside in the hopes that I can find them again in the lost and found box. This set from BrunchMom on Etsy is a much nicer option. The delicate embroidery is so classy and luxurious, any kid would be happy to sport these all winter long…
With three kids in my house, everyone is always fighting over their favorite color cup. Personalized cups might be the solution! These tumblers are so modern and classy that they make the perfect little gift for kids with unique names. PreppyPinkPineapples on Etsy offers so many different color and font options that each child will be able to get exactly what they want while still coordinating. They would make a great gift for the entire family, or an entire set of grandkids or cousins!
Another item my kids often fight over is which color towel they get after bath time. Imagine how much more special bath time becomes when they have a towel with their name on it! They’ll use them at swimming lessons, on beach days or pool parties and always know which towel is theirs! I love these ones from ItsSewDanielle on Etsy because there are so many different options for customization (it’s even offered as a towel and washcloth set).
7. Library Bag
This book bag is adorable for little readers! Our kids recently got their first library cards and my son loads up on his maximum limit of chapter books (because he can blow through one in just a few nights). He definitely needs one of these bags to carry his stash in! If your kid isn’t particularly into books, then ZoeysAttic on Etsy offers all kinds of personalized tote bags for just about everyone, no matter what you’re into. There’s one for dance class, football practice, or the beach!
8. Santa Sack
We invested in personalized Santa sacks for the kids several Christmases ago and it’s been such an awesome addition to our Christmas tradition! The kids LOVE seeing their special sacks under the tree on Christmas morning and it makes the magic so real. When they’re older and have outgrown the Santa tradition, it will be a wonderful keepsake for them!
9. Story Book
I bet a book that has your kid’s unique name in it will easily become one of their favorites! I remember my sister and cousins and I getting personalized books from our favorite aunt when we were kids and I still remember every word of the story because of how often we read it! There are so many options out there but these ones from MyMagicNameBook on Etsy come with a unique story for each child, so no two will ever be alike!
And lastly, why not just get their name on an awesome rubber stamp set!?!? Now they can put their name on anything and everything they choose!
