Custom Gifts to Give
Want to show someone you care, but don't have a lot of time? These apps help you create personalized or custom gifts in minutes—all from your iPhone or iPad.
Turn your most memorable photos into a snazzy iPhone case with Casetify—or into one-of-a-kind journals, T-shirts, mugs, and more with Zazzle. For a little something special for a special little one, use Grandma's Gift to create a customized print storybook using your own portraits.
Nothing brings a room together like the right artwork. Upload a photo to FreePrints Photo Tiles to order an 8-by-8-inch mounted print for a very reasonable price, or Fiverr to easily hire a professional illustrator to sketch a custom portrait of the recipient (or their beloved pet). Art.com sells famous artwork and prints in a custom frame that you can tailor to your giftee’s decor.
MTailor uses your iPhone’s camera to take precise measurements to create custom suits and casual attire for men, plus women’s jeans. The measuring process is short (about 30 seconds) and simple: Stand and turn in a circle. You won’t be able to do this on the sly, but your recipient will no doubt appreciate a gift that fits perfectly.
Anthropologie now has dozens of furniture styles available with custom fabrics and finishes, from easy chairs to sectional sofas. Orders usually take six weeks or longer.
