What’s in a name…

March 31st, 2009

Three key letters that make up a beautiful thing called a monogram, that’s what!

Some might call me a bit overboard with my favorite three letters, but I think you can never have enough.

Here are some of my favorite things that I have monogrammed:

1. Return Address Stamp

These are great self-inking stamps that come in a handful of different fonts and styles.  There are several on-line vendors, but the one I liked the best was www.expressionery.com.  Keep an eye out for a discount code at checkout!

2. Tote Bag

This was a bridesmaids gift from one of my best buddies.  It actually has an insulated interior and zippered top.  And how cute that she monogrammed each one with our names?!

I’ve put this bag to good use on road trips and picnics.  My sis-in-law has one too and she uses hers to keep her baby’s food and drink cold while they travel!

3. Note Pads

This set found at www.stationerystudio.com offers 7 different sizes of notepads with each one having a different tag at the top.  It makes a great gift because who doesn’t love extra notepads to keep in your purse or in your car?

4. Hand Towels

This is probably one of the least expensive ways to monogram something.  All you have to do is pick up an inexpensive hand towel at Marshalls or Target and then take it to your local embroidery shop.  For about $11 bucks you can pick your own design and thread color and viola, your very own personalized towel.

Do you guys share the same passion I do for monogramming?

What is your favorite thing to get monogrammed?

    I love getting things monogrammed and embroidered! One of my favorite baby gifts to give are onesies with matching burp cloths! When you know the baby’s name, it is really sweet! I also like a linen napkin with the initial of your last name! Amity Hill–she went to Hollins with us–has a little business she does out of her house and I use her for all of my monogramming needs! She is good and affordable! Thought I would let you know, as I always like a good place to get monogramming done!

    how about men’s casual work shirts – with the simple monogram on the pocket or sleeve…

    We actually got the cuff of the shirt Mr. vB wore on our wedding day monogrammed with our wedding date. It looked great until the first time I took it to get dry-cleaned. It kinda melted! oops!

    Love to give monogrammed gifts. I am soon to be an auntie and can’t wait to give all sorts of monogrammed things to the child.

    I got married so that I could get a different monogram to put on all of my new gifts?!
