With Christmas right around the corner, stores, outlets and malls may be quite full of people searching for that ''perfect gift''.

There are several place to look for personalized gifts. A good place to go is to your local Walmart or Staples store and head towards the Kodak photo center. Often around Christmas, they have wonderful personalized gift ideas such as calendars, throws, mugs and paperweights. In order to grant a happy smile make sure that you use a picture that the receiver likes. There is nothing worse than receiving a mug or a paperweight featuring a not so pleasant looking face.

There are also several online merchants that offer the opportunity for creating personalized gifts. Ebay and Amazon are good place to look. These merchants will either need a picture or the name of the receiver. It may take a few days for the gift to be ready for shipping so this is something that must be kept in consideration before ordering.

Following are some personalized gift ideas:

~Personalized Doormat

A doormat is already something nice to give, but a personalized doormat is even better. Some companies also feature Christmas decor or other holiday decor on the doormat. A doormat helps keep the home clean and acts as a greeting area for welcomed guests.

~Personalized Mug

~Personalized Tote Bag

Tote bags are quite convenient bags for the busy person that needs to carry around their stuff most of the time. A personalized tote bag makes a great gift idea for these beings and will very likely be very welcomed.

~Personalized Puzzles

What more fun than composing a puzzle piece by piece and then recognizing the face of family, pets and friends in it?

Then propose to do the puzzle and watch his or hers expression of disbelief as the characters start looking familiar!

~Personalized T-shirts

What better idea than giving something to wear and at the same love because it features the picture of a pet or a loved one? Many offer the option of adding a caption under, so get some humorous remarks ready!
