We spend a lot of time curating the best of the best custom gifts for mom–or dad or grads or pretty much anyone. What can we say, we love customizing gifts which can turn a perfectly lovely present into a more special keepsake. Now with Mother’s Day around the corner, there’s another site you’ll want to bookmark for that very thing: Hatch.
Exclusively focused on handmade custom gifts and personalized goods from small makers and crafters, there are 800 artists on site right now including a few we’ve featured before like Merriweather Council whose wonderful custom initial pendants are shown above.
I will say that while there are some truly fabulous finds on site, it’s got a bit of a clunky interface; although I do like the little red hotspots over the photos which show you exactly what’s customizable about the product. Also, I think that quite a few of the businesses suffer from meh photos work (especially jewelry) that is probably way more impressive in person. Still, looking around the site (beyond the Mother’s Day gifts category), I found some wonderful custom gift ideas for Mom:
Custom heart fingerprint necklace by Heart and Flutter
Custom postcard pillows from Chicago’s Finch & Cotter. You can feature a single favorite photo or a collage of up to 6, then add a custom message on the back. They even offer square pillows specifically for your favorite Instagram photos–so add that to our list of the best gifts from your Instagram photos.
Custom illustrated articulated paper dolls by Pieces of Elise’s
Personalized name necklace by River Valley Designs. Include two children’s names, or just We [heart] Mom
Custom vintage globes made with decoupage and hand-lettering by Wendy Gold. Just check on lead times for ordering (as with all of these items)–we tried to include these in our Holiday Gift Guide but she was already inundated with orders.
Personalized embroidered initial necklaces by Merriweather Council
Hand-painted custom artwork of favorite objects on small cards by Elisa Wikey. So many wonderful possibilities!
Custom silver Scrabble letter necklaces by Punky Jane that can spell out a name, nickname, kids’ initials or…Pi. Of course.
