Holiday Must Haves with HandPicked #behandpicked #GiftGuide

I love, love me some personalized gifts and I recently heard about HandPicked and they have proved to be the masters of personalized gifts. They carry a huge range of items you can personalize by color, shape, design and add personalized embroidery and engraving. I had the change to check out several of their items up close and personal this week!


If you didn’t already know, I’m secretly a pirate. Before I got married, my initials were “AAH” which I attribute to my quick temper and love of horror movies. Now that I’m married, my initials are “AAR”, so I’m a pirate. Basically. That being said, I got several items that show of my initials and pirate status. Like I mentioned above, HandPicked carries a wide range of giftable items such as jewelry, clothing and accessories and a few odds and ends like coffee cups and trays to store your jewelry.

The first thing I absolutely fell in love with is this Personalized Blanket Scarf. You can get this customized in so many ways. There are 3 different colors to choose from; royal blue, black and a medium pink shade. You can choose to get this embroidered with one letter like mine or you can do all three of your initials. There are 5 fonts to choose from and over 20 different thread colors! The possibilities with this one are countless. This scarf is really big and soft. It’s 100% acrylic and measures a whopping 74″x 37″. Be on the look out for my #OOTD featuring this beauty VERY soon!


Aside from wearable goods, I also picked out this clever thermal mug! “The Struggle Is Real” could not be more fitting for my life at the moment as I rush to get everything ready for the holidays! Plus, I won’t lie, blog life can be stressful….#deadlines. I’ve spent the last two days glued to this adorable mug and my Arbonne Phytosport Complete Hydration. They are a match made in cleverly hydrated heaven! This mug is double wall insulated and made of stainless steel. It keeps your hot drinks hot & your cold drinks cold, plus the lid is super easy to turn closed for on-the-go. You can search “mug” on the HandPicked site to see more of their cute cups including one of my other favorites that reads “This Girl Runs of Coffee & Jesus.


I was also super impressed with the quality of this Personalized Foldover Bag. Like with the scarf, there are several different options on how you can personalize this stunning bag.  You can get this in Black, Cream or Brown and again, there are over 20 thread choices for your monogram. You can choose from having the monogram in a “medallion” shape in the center of the bag or go for a more subtle look with a sweet monogram along the bottom like shown above.


This bag is amazingly crafted and features lots of pockets and folds for your items! It comes with a small strap to turn this into a clutch as well as a longer strap to make this a crossbody or shoulder bag. 


The biggest selection from HandPicked is in their jewelry and the sheer variety is amazing! They carry earrings, bracelets and necklaces- all with fun ways to make the perfect personalized present for your loved ones.

For a bolder look, this Personalized Thick Link Charm Bracelet is the perfect girly touch!  This textured link bracelet features a 1″ personalized charm, a faux pearl and even a tiny rhinestone charm. You can personalize this piece with up to 10 characters like a cute nickname or word of choice.

DSC00588With the flirty texture, it’s a little tough to photograph the great engraving, but it catches the light just right! I love this bracelet paired with often overpowering chunky sweaters, it still stands out on the wrist! There is also a matching necklace and earrings!
