I love gifting (and receiving) goodies that have been personalized for the recipient. There’s something so special about a gift that could only go to the person receiving it.

These totes from iomoi go a step beyond the traditional monogram by letting you write a little love note or other message inside.

Order before Dec. 12 and choose 2 day shipping to get your customized tote in time for Christmas. Starting at $88, iomoi.
