Top 35 Customization Trends in August

From Personalized Cookbooks to Fully Customizable Furniture

— September 4, 2018 — Art & Design
The top August 2018 customization ideas provide a look into the way everything from personal care products to retail stores are being reshaped to offer a greater level of personalization to the average consumer.

One's food choices and the cosmetics used on the body are highly personal choices and a new wave of products and services is helping to address the fact that everybody ultimately has different health and lifestyle needs. Some of the best examples of this include natural skincare brands that take one's individual needs and the season into account, as well as cookbooks that can be tailored to offer only the most relevant recipes.

One-size-fits-all, off-the-shelf products are taking a backseat to innovative fashion, sleep accessories and more that specifically address personal pain points.
