January 1,

There are endless moments throughout the year when we are faced with a blank space on our shopping list of gifts. What to get your sister for her birthday? Or your mom for Mother’s Day? What about your crew of closest friends around the holidays? One idea that’s at the top of our minds, though, is a custom engraved Estée Lauder lip color, fragrance or compact. They’re great gift ideas on their own, but the golden engraving makes them VIP. And who doesn’t love knowing something was created and reserved just for them?

Because we know you’re busier than usual right now, we’ll break down your options real quick. The creamy, luxurious Pure Color Envy lipsticks allow for the most characters (up to 12 on the cap), giving them the most space for a longer first name or even a short message. The AERIN fragrances have 3-character monogram designs, and there are a few other fragrances that allow for up to 7 characters for a short name or initials. The elegant After Hours Slim Compact can also be engraved with up to 10 characters, and the same goes for the shine-or-shimmer Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lip Gloss.

You can do it all—select the item, personalize it and click to buy—on our Custom Engraving page, and it’s a complimentary service for our Estée E-List's Be Enthusiastic and Be Envied members. Otherwise it’s just $10. (Psst! Select stores have engraving that’s always complimentary.)

A custom-engraved, one-of-a-kind Estée Lauder item is a guaranteed winner—making it the perfect present to gift year-round.
