Whether you’re using popsicle sticks and glue or just ordering online, sending custom gifts is something that will never get old. We know how important it is to show people that they matter, so we’ve put together a list of a few sites that will aid you in your quest to share that feel-good feeling. From simple stickers all the way to custom 3D models, we’ve got you covered.




Sticky9 (formerly known as StickyGram) lets you take all your Instagram photos Not Just For Selfies: 6 Ways Outdoorsy Travelers Can Use Instagram Instagram can be a time-wasting and ego-boosting outlet, but it's all in how each of us use it. If you are the outdoorsy type, let the community of adventurous Instagrammers help you out. Read More and put them to good use. Stickers (obviously), magnets, and phone cases can all be created using your and your friends’ Instas. Price-wise, you’ll be looking at around $20 for a sheet of re-usable stickers, and this also allows for the option of choosing multiple images and sizes. The site even offers custom iPad cases, starting at about $37.


Zazzle is kind of a standard site when it comes to customizable gifts: t-shirts, mugs, and stickers can all be generated here using your own personal designs. The price tag is in the “what-you-would-expect” range. You’ll probably be dishing out something like $20 for a t-shirt with your own custom design. So, if you’ve ever had a hankering to send your significant other a mug with your face on it… this is the site for you. They also offer some rather off-the wall items (custom postage stamps, for one). For instance, you can even make a watch with a custom face. Pretty cool!


While not necessarily a gift, thank-you cards are a courtesy that has fallen to the wayside due to the convenience of emails and text messaging. Postable allows you to pick out a thank you card with a snazzy design (for instance, they even offer a Burt Reynolds themed card), write it using fonts that are similar to handwriting. Postable then prints, stuffs, and mails your card – all for less than $5. Practical? No. Convenient? Yes. There’s also all those cool designs — that’s something you wouldn’t get if you just bought a big box of thank you cards.
