KitchenAid stand mixers are one of the most iconic kitchen appliances. Not only do they stand the test of time when it comes to quality, but they’ve stayed in style for 100 years, too. With its powerful settings and helpful attachments, this classic kitchen appliance is more than a countertop prop to ogle. But of course we love doing that too—especially now that the brand offers more than 30 color options, 14 patterned bowls, and its newest feature of custom engraving.

In November, KitchenAid announced its first-ever personalization option on the Artisan Series 5-Quart Tilt-Head stand mixer. You can pick from a custom laser engraved message, monogram, or name around the trim band. Using the company's customization tool, you’ll be guided through a series of steps in which you first select the stand color, choose your engraving up to 24 characters, find your favorite ceramic or stainless steel bowl, and add any helpful attachments (there’s more than 20!) to create your most personalized stand mixer yet.

Whether you’re an avid baker yourself and can’t wait to add a new custom stand mixer to your kitchen or are looking for a unique wedding, birthday, anniversary, or holiday gift, we’re officially declaring this appliance as one of our new favorite luxurious gifts. It has that personalized touch that makes a gift even more special. And to be sure your design is perfected, you can download and print out a copy of your selections to double check everything is correct before you order.

While the price may vary per stand mixer depending on what bowls and attachments you use, the engraving is completely free, so why not make it a one-of-a-kind purchase?
