Although they've evolved from cassettes to CDs to digital playlists, custom mixtapes never go out of style. Why? Because personalized gifts are a thoughtful gesture regardless of the construction. A list of romantic songs isn't your only option, though. We've sourced the best personalized gifts for your husband regardless of the celebratory occasion—think: embroidered sweatshirts, engraved drinking glasses, monogrammed leather goods and more.

Before we get into all the great customized gifts for your husband—of which there are many—there are some things to keep in mind: First, plan ahead! Personalized gifts take extra time to make and might not offer any expedited shipping options. Next, be attentive. You know your husband best, so we're in no way implying you would misspell his name…but always double check before completing your purchase and if you can get a proof of the product ahead of time, do so.

Now, start scrolling. Our roundup features custom gifts for any husband at that next big event, whether it be a birthday, Father's Day or a just-because-I-love-you day.

1. Personalized Bourbon Barrel Flight

2. Engraved Bottle of Bourbon Whiskey
