It used to be that you could only monogram things like towels or robes. Then the market opened up a bit and we began to see custom-painted vanity plates, door knockers, doormats and such. Now there are lots of different items that can be monogrammed and customized for anyone.
Custom Gift Ideas
So what are some of the interesting gifts that can be monogrammed for the holidays?
- Wine Cork Holder : Purchase a wine cork holder in the form of someone’s first letter of their last name, and over the years they can fill it in with wine corks.
- Kids’ Apron : This would be a great gift for a little helper in the kitchen. And if the child is not currently a little helper, I can’t think of a better way to get them excited than to give them a personalized apron.
- Black Stainless Steel Business Card Holder : I purchased myself a metal business card holder several years ago and absolutely love it. Not only does it look great, but it also is much easier to find in my bottomless pit of a purse.
- Vanity License Plate : You can choose from a variety of license plate styles that are ready to be personalized with a monogram.
- Steak Branding Iron : Do you know someone who loves to grill (and specifically grill steaks)? If so, getting a branding iron monogrammed with their initials would make a really special gift.
- Pet Bowl : Most people are in love with their pets (our two kitties make our house a home!). A great gift to give a pet owner is to personalize a pet food or water bowl with a monogram of their pet’s name.
- Decal for a Vehicle : These are some classy-looking decals you can get personalized with the monograms of the person you are buying a gift for. They also have those family monogrammed decals you see on the back of vehicles.
- Guitar Pick : How neat to present someone who plays guitar with an engraved guitar pick!
