When shopping for birthday gifts, you're always looking for something special that will carry some meaning. So what better way to accomplish that than by adding an extra touch and personalizing the gift you'll be giving?

With many companies offering customizable gifts online, buying personalized birthday gifts is as easy as it has ever been. With a few clicks and keystrokes, you not only can give something special, but give something unique that bears your recipient's name or anything else you wish to include.

Still need help getting started? Here are a few suggestions from RedEnvelope, an online store that specializes in unique and personalized gifts.

Birthday gifts for her

* Bathwear. Towels, robes and slippers are all items that remind us of the comforts of home. By having your recipient's name or initials embroidered into these items, you'll make them that much more cozy and comfortable.

* Memento box. Everyone has special things they want to keep track of, but it can be hard to find a good place to put them. By adding a personalized message to a memento box, you can provide that special place for your loved one.

* Accessories. Things like purses, compacts and jewelry all accentuate a woman's personality. Add an extra special touch by buying a special lady in your life a purse mirror with her initials engraved on it, or a necklace with a special message carved into it.

* Custom calendar. Looking for a gift to remind her about all the good times you've had together? A custom calendar is a great way to accomplish this, as you can assign your favorite photos to each month. That way, she'll also want to keep the calendar around after the year is over.

Birthday gifts for him

* Monogrammed cufflinks. Cufflinks with his initials on them will make your husband or your dad feel more important on special occasions.

* Personalized sign. Does the man of the house have a particular place he likes to call his own? Make him feel even more at home by giving him a sign to hang with a special message for the basement bar or man cave.

* Engraved bottle opener. You could either get him a heavy duty bottle opener with his initials engraved on it for home or one with a special message engraved on it that's the size of a credit card and will fit right in his wallet.

* Money clip. These, like pocket watches, are often passed down from generation to generation, so one with the family name engraved on it could make for an extra-meaningful gift for the man in your life.

Remember when you are shopping for birthday gifts that your loved one will appreciate whatever you give him or her -- because it's from you -- so don't put too much pressure on yourself. Personalization is just another way for you to make your gift fun and memorable for both the giver and receiver.
