9 holiday gift ideas with a personal touch

If you want to gift your family and friends with something a little more personal this year, getting them an item engraved or monogrammed is a great way to take an extra, thoughtful step.

Now, we're not just talking about picture frames -- although, they are included on this list, because who doesn't love a personalized photo frame? You can still buy a gift you know they'll actually put to use -- but an added touch that stakes their claim to the item shows you put a little more thought into the gift, than, say, just getting them a blender that was on sale.
