The monogramming phenomenon has really caught on recently. Are we all so self obsessed that we need to see our initials and names on everything we own? Umm, yes, apparently so! Sam and I are fully fledged members of the monogramming crew – almost every accessory we own is adorned with our initials or names – or our babies names and initials. See below for our faves, and if you aren’t as narcissistic as us then they all make perfect Christmas gifts for the monogram lover in your life…
This is one of our favourite things to give as a gift. You can customise pretty much any pair of Nikes. Choose the shade you want the soles to be, change the colour of the tongue and get your name or initials embossed onto them. But if you’re buying for a friends new baby (yes, they do kids sizes too!) don’t make the same mistake that Gemma did and order an adult size 5, instead of kids size 5 #fail
A giant bag that fits everything in, has your initials on the front AND comes in leopard print – yes please!! As die hard leopard lovers, we love these bags from Say What You C that you can bespoke with your own initials. If leopard print isn’t your thing, they also come in camo and forest green (that’s next on our list).
3. Susan Caplan
This is our favourite jewellery brand – mainly because Susan is Gemma’s mum 🙂 But also because the pieces are beautiful. She can emboss initials onto pretty signet rings that come in square or oval and in silver or gold. Susan gave one to Gemma, with the initials BB, when Belle was born. Obviously it made her cry!
A lovely little token piece to add to a Christmas stocking, or give to someone as a gift. Monochrome, less than £20 and looks super chic. Check out our fancy This Is Mothership phone case below.
We’ve been sticking these cheap but chic stickers all over our belongings for years to give them the personal touch and we love the new minimalist rose gold and platinum range. Stick them on everything, from your phone to your handbag.
6. Studio Sarah
The perfect stocking filler or secret santa present for your chicest of friends, we love Studio Sarah’s monogrammed marble note cards and notebooks. A little birdie tells us monogrammed leather goods are coming soon.
Sam wears an ‘S’ necklace everyday from jewellery brand Annoushkawhich was a gift from a friend. It’s quite pricey so we’ve searched for a more affordable version and are obsessed with these Monica Vinaderinitial pendants that you can have engraved with whatever you like. Choose your initial or your babes, or both.
Boyarde have collaborated with LK Bennett so that you can personalise your favourite bag. These leather stickers are a great alternative to personalised jewellery and can be added onto almost anything. Do what we do, invest in a couple of pouches, one for your make-up and one for your baby but before you sling into your changing bag, add these bright pop art stickers so you know who’s is who’s.
