Hit the motherlode of custom gifts for mom at Hatch

Custom gifts for mom: initial pendants by Merriweather Council on Hatch

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 stuff is perfect for mother’s day…but when I’m on the site I can’t help but want to shop for myself!
