From monogrammed bags to shoes you designed yourself, wearing a personalized piece is not only special, but it also makes a major statement. Ahead, find eight stylish items that can be made completely your own, and get ready to proudly show off your individuality!
When it comes to denim customization, your options are limitless, from pins to patches to embroidery to screen-printing. And while you can definitely DIY all on your own, LEVI'S® Tailor Shop makes it super easy to get the exact look you want on any denim piece you can imagine — think cutoffs, jeans, jackets, bags, and more.
We personally love swapping neutral buttons for colored ones and changing up the fabric on our back pockets. Just think how original these jeans ($98) would look with a few strategically placed studs and a little distressing.

Bottom line: no matter your look or vibe, there's a PopGrip that'll complement it. Simply swap out your own assortment of grips based off your mood or OOTD. Ahead, check out a few of our favorite styles such as Mother of Pearl ($30), Acetate Cotton Candy ($20), and Pressed Flower White Daisy ($15).
Customized kicks are a surefire way to impress any sneakerhead. Lately, we've been seeing everything from initials to graffiti on shoes, and we can't think of a cooler way to embrace sneaker culture than getting in on the personalization action.
Vans lets you upload your own art or photograph to its website, where you can then apply it directly to a shoe style of your choice. You can also have your Vans ($80) embroidered or even create custom shoes by simply selecting your own colors and shoelaces.
Engraving a vanity accessory such as a perfume bottle makes for a timeless and beautiful gift for yourself or a loved one. A 90-ml. bottle of My Burberry Eau de Parfum ($127) can be engraved with initials free of charge on Burberry's website, giving the iconic fragrance an elegant and unique touch.
Fans of initial jewelry will love taking their personalization up a notch with custom-made pieces — like the ones created by Diamonds Doing Good. Although the ethically sourced fine jewelry brand offers endless customization options, we particularly love its Initial and Diamond Spacer Necklace ($375), which allows you to place up to four letters on one necklace. It also designs jewelry featuring full names, birthstones, engravings, and more.
Adding embroidery or stamping to your favorite leather products has stood the test of time and serves as a stylish and classic way to add subtle yet elegant personalization. Madewell allows you to monogram a large variety of its products ranging from backpacks to crossbodies to wallets — we especially love this carryall tote ($158).
In addition, jackets, tees, sweaters, hats, and more can be embroidered — all directly through its site.
A tube of lipstick may just be one of the most unexpected items to get engraved, which also makes it one of the most fun. At Urbandecay.com, you can go wild and put any phrase or word on your — or a friend's — tube of Vice Lipstick ($19). It's free of charge, and you can add up to 15 characters. How's that for a unique gift?
