Monogram Love

Call it my recent name change (or maybe my love of all things prep), but I can't get enough of monograms lately!

Ok I will stop now.  (I sorta feel like a little school girl doodling her first name with her crush's last name to see how well it sounds...except that this is my actual new name!)

But anyways, the sky is the limit on what you can add a name to (apparel, jewelry, home decor, etc.) and adding a touch of personalization turns an ordinary registry item into an amazingly thoughtful gift.  It requires a little extra thought and planning - likely not the type of thing you're buying the week of the shower/wedding/birthday - but that's exactly why I love it!  You know whoever was behind it was really trying to give you something that was made just for you.

Thanks to my dear friend, Pinterest, I've put together a pretty decent wish list of preppy monogrammed gifts in case you're ever in need an idea for me

I desperately want this gold ring (or the matching necklace by Jennifer Zuener...love her stuff...or both!)

  1. I was seriously obsessed with everything monogrammed at the end of HS/beginning of college and remain somewhat obsessed, still. I have monogrammed bath towels and pillow cases, as well as some jewelry. I love the matchbox idea!
