Gift Guide || Monograms

The best monogrammed and personalized holiday gifts! | 2016 Bows & Sequins Gift Guide

I’m fairly certain I would monogram just about anything. Sweaters, jewelry, bags and totes, sheets and pillowcases, towelsBarbour jackets, scarves, collared shirts, striped shirts, decor, you name it. (Heck, I just ordered JRS for my new license plates.) I love how a monogram adds a little something extra to any piece, especially a gift. When it comes to gifting, it shows that you put a little bit of extra time and thought into it, rather than just picking something up last minute, you know? Whether it’s his or her initials or a full name, pretty much everything is better with a monogram. When it comes to personalized pieces, most of them are made to order so it takes a little bit of extra shipping and handling time! Make sure to get your monogrammed gifts placed early (like, this week!) so you don’t run into a rush shipping, not-going-to-make-it-by-Christmas-situation down the road.

My favorites? Minnie & Emma phone cases.. Their stationery is great, too! I’ve had this set of travel bags from Cuyana forever and I absolutely love them… The perfect gift, especially if your girl’s initials just changed or will be changing soon! 💍 I also think these monogrammed sneakers are so cool… Definitely something fresh and fun.

A few more finds…

PS: Did you know you can monogram a whole slew of Kate Spade bags?! How did I just now figure this out?? Adding to my wish list, ASAP! This would be the *perfect* gift for the Kate Spade lover on your list. (Or, you know, if you wanted to send me something to put under my tree. 😉) You have to order by December 10th for guaranteed delivery by December 23rd! You can add lots of symbols, too… Just click around in the monogram shop, choose ‘single’ or ‘double,’ and all of the symbols (bows, taxis, cameras, etc) will show up!

I actually also just realized that J.Crew offers the same service on their bags! Where have I been?! Unfortunately, monogrammed items won’t arrive by Christmas. But keep in mind for birthdays and all of that jazz in the new year!

Don’t forget, monogrammed items take longer to get to your doorstep since most of them have to be custom made! Make sure you allow extra time for processing and delivery. 👍🏼
