In a world overwhelmed by mass-production, it can be hard to find a gift that truly symbolises how you feel about someone. Particularly when it comes to your significant other, gift giving can be, at times, stressful and anniversaries - as the celebration of the milestones of your relationship - especially.
Nothing says ‘You’re special' better than a thoughtful unique gift, and what is more unique than a personalised gift created especially for that person? Whether it be embossed, embroidered, printed, illustrated or designed by you or a loved one, adding a custom element will win over your significant other.
However, with plenty of monogrammed gifts, bespoke treasures, and customizable wonders available, it can be hard to find your way towards the right present. If you are looking for something long-lasting and special, we suggest you consider custom leather gifts.
We might be biased but, as the most exquisite, durable and popular material available in the world, nothing says forever quite like a personalised leather gift does. Bear with us through this selection of expert-recommended leather personalised gifts for all couples — you will finally be able to enjoy your anniversary without stress, as it should be!
Louis Vuitton has been one of the first leather brands to offer personalisation services, such as hot-stamping and hand-painting, with most of its monogram products, from wallets to suitcases.

Following Vuitton steps, Gucci seized the opportunity offered by the raise in popularity of personalised gifts, launching Gucci DIY – Do It Yourself.
First launched in 2017, the service initially was limited to Gucci Dionysus bag.

The leather refined Ophidia tote bag and wallet, customisable with letters in diverse colours and materials, make great bespoke gifts.
