“To each his own” basically means everyone has the right to their taste or personal preference. You use it when you don’t agree with someone’s preference but respects their choice.
For example, you can’t stand to watch Horror movies, while your friend loves watching them. You can say, “I don’t understand why you would watch something that would distress you – but to each his own.”
