The 6 Best Personalised Gifts for Kids
Children can be both the easiest and the hardest people to shop for. On one hand, they’d enjoy receiving just about anything if it’s a present – even an avocado! But on the other hand, kids grow and they grow fast! It won’t be long until they outgrow cute outfits, tricycles, and teddy bears. This is where personalised gifts come in. Not only is it a break from the ‘cookie-cutter’ style, mass-produced gifts for kids, but the children themselves know almost instinctively that the item being gifted is both special and indisputably theirs.
And trust us, if the child has siblings, something with their name on it is like a BIG DEAL.
So getting back to the point – with a little creativity and a few favourite photos, here are six (6) of our top picks on the best personalised gifts for kids.
Just for me mugs
Once your little ones see their photo and name printed on this personalised enamel mug, they’ll want to use it for every meal. Light enough for even a toddler to handle, the darling designs made available for the enamel mugs will surely delight anyone who lays their eyes on it.
Additionally, the enamel mug is also very easy to clean and is shatterproof – so parents can rest easy.

Put my name on it stickers
What kid doesn’t love stickers? They’re visually appealing, fun to peel and stick onto things and places (plus- kids love sticky things!) and it gives the little ones an excuse to accessorise, decorate and express themselves in their own way.
From a parent’s standpoint, sticker name labels are a fun and easy way to keep track of all your kid’s wayward belongings. You can, for example, identify all of your children’s books, toys and necessary materials for school or kindergarten.
The beauty of the stickers provided at Pixajoy is that we have them with all kinds of shapes, designs and configurations! From durable and waterproof ones with matte or gloss finishes to ones that have a writable texture or re-stickable, customise a set for your kids and watch as they brighten up with glee.
Note: If you’re looking for stickers that are dishwasher & freezer safe and scratch resistant, we recommend going for the White PP (Gloss/Matte) type of stickers.
My dear diary notebook
Diaries and journals have been kept by people for hundreds of years. They’re a way to keep track of moods, records of events, and provide insights on peoples, places and things. Some diaries can even become historic treasures – like the diary of Anne Frank.
Although the chances of your kids writing a diary that the world may want to read one day is low, they will enjoy the activity of noting down their day and creating logs for daily events that they themselves find interesting.
By giving your child a personalised diary notebook, you’ll encourage them to create lasting records that they can look back on with fondness and introspection. Additionally, diaries will also give your kids a productive outlet for when their emotions run high; which is very helpful – especially if your kids feel overwhelmed and find it hard to properly express themselves verbally.
Put me together puzzles
Puzzles with fun and colourful images – like cartoons or fairytale scenery have always drawn children’s attention. Besides the ‘fun’ factor, puzzles are actually very good in developing your child’s physical, cognitive and emotional skills. For example, in terms of:
- Physical development: your kids will have to hold onto the puzzle pieces and learn to fit them into the right spaces.
- Cognitive development: your kids will learn how to solve a problem (putting the puzzle back together and completing the image)
- Emotional development: your kids will learn how to be patient when solving a puzzle and will be able to experience the feeling of satisfaction once the puzzle is complete.
All in all, a puzzle is a perfectly fun and educational gift for kids. To get them extra invested in playing and using the puzzle, try creating a personalised puzzle featuring their own photos, photos of family members or even ones with a group photo of your kids and their favourite people.
We can assure you that they’ll love putting it together and may even invite you to play along with them – creating a perfect opportunity for parents and kids to bond.
Bedroom ‘Wall of Fame’
When it comes to children’s bedrooms, there is no limit to how you can decorate it to provide a fun, safe and creative space for your little ones. This is where the personalised photo tiles come in handy! With these re-stickable tiles, you can change the decor design as many times as you like to reflect your child’s current interest. A bonus point is that you can do so WITHOUT the risk of damaging your walls.
Some great ideas include:
- Turning your kid’s artworks into re-stickable photo tiles: They’ll be ecstatic to see their drawing transformed in such a way and will definitely be proud to show them off to their friends and family.
- Creating a photo tile gallery to showcase their growth: Kids love photos and they’ll definitely enjoy seeing a wall gallery that comprises photos from when they were babies to their current age.
- Create a ‘scrabble style’ headboard depicting your child’s name: Instead of printing full photos or artwork on the photo tiles, you can consider printing individual letters onto the photo tiles instead and have the kids spell out their name over their beds. Not only will it be a fun activity to have the kids put their name together, but if they do make a mistake, they can simply unstick the tiles and try again.
Be my own hero books
Okay, so some of you may think that personalised storybooks and activity books for kids are just gimmick-ey presents, targeted at Moms, Dads, Aunties, Uncles, Grannies, Grandpas, etc – as a thoughtful and ‘no-brainer’ present.
