While the CDC may be recommending social distancing [thanks, Coronavirus], the calendar isn’t paying attention, and holidays aren’t changing their dates! I’m talking Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and Graduations. Whether we’re going to be celebrating them in person or taking advantage of technology to see one another, it’s still a time to celebrate those we love! Rather than going the traditional off-the-shelf route, we thought it’d be fun to share some of our favorite custom gifts, from places like Etsy, Shutterfly, and Minted! Personalized gifts add a little something extra, and this year, that’s something we could also use a bit of. So take a peek at a few of our favorite ideas for the moms, dads, and grads in your life, and remember, custom gifts take a little more time to produce, which is why we’re sharing these ideas sooner rather than later!

Founder and creator of LIY, Erin turned her dream of a hobby blog into a full-time career which she now runs alongside the LIY team! When not in front of her computer screen [with a La Croix or wine in hand] or in front of a mirror taking mirror selfies, you can find Erin spending time on the water, cuddled up with her two pups and husband most likely watching the latest Shark Tank episode, or getting lost in an easy beach read.
