Everybody loves a monogram. And why wouldn’t they? It’s one of those extra touches that can turn something standard into something special. This year, I’m loving our Personalized Gift Guide because you can give this kind of gift to everyone! Even (or maybe especially) the people you don’t know very well. It’s thoughtful and elegant, which is how I want all my gifts to feel.
You can’t get more luxurious than a customized cashmere sweater, so why haven’t you bought this Ralph Lauren one yet? There’s a men’s one, too! It’s not Ralph Lauren, but this customized oxford feels like it should be. And of course, you have to get monogrammed matching Christmas pj’s for the whole family.
Maybe you’re not getting a Gucci bamboo bag this year, but this leather and bamboo handle tote with gold lettering for a monogram feels every bit as good. The Italian suede bag is beautiful as well. This nifty little pouch holds all the essentials: phone, headphones, credits cards, IDs.
One thing they’ll definitely use? Cocktail napkins. These monogrammed linen napkins are so lovely! As is this canvas wine tote, perfect for holding two bottles whenever we start going outside again. But until then, stay inside with this deep pile custom robe. We started playing a lot of cards during quarantine, so a personalized deck of cards would be a nice upgrade to my tired set. Or a Greek key catchall to hold the rings on my nightstand?
Ballet flats are due for a comeback, and these dainty hand-painted Margaux flats might be the pair that does it. How about a custom colored pair of Chuck Taylors if you’re feeling nostalgic. Finally, a monogrammed face mask. Because now is not the time to stop wearing them, so you might as well make it feel a little fun.
