Monogrammed gifts are a way to personalize a gift for someone special. By having their initials inscribed on the present, you are telling them you selected it just for them. And you took the time to add something extra to top it off. We have many items that can be monogrammed at west elm like jewelry boxes, throws, frames, shopping bags and Christmas stockings. Whether you are searching for a birthday, anniversary, thank you or holiday gift, monograms can add sentiment and meaning to the wrapped up surprise.
A jewelry lover most likely needs a jewelry box to organize all the trinkets and jewels. Separate compartments keep necklaces and chains from getting tangled up in bracelets and earrings. Mirrored and assorted lacquered jewelry boxes are elegantly designed to be kept out on a dresser or chest of drawers. A ring cone or holder pairs well with a jewelry box. The holders store rings stacked in a row allowing more room in the jewelry box for other types of jewelry. The holder can be set beside the box for convenience. It can hold toe rings and ear cuffs in addition to the rings.
Throws always make a fabulous gift, especially when monogrammed. Traditional variegated throws in earth tones are classic in style and warm to the touch. Yarn-dyed throws come in a rainbow of colors including blues, pinks and yellows. Acrylic fabric is easy to maintain and cozy to curl up with. Read a good book, take an afternoon siesta or relax by the fireplace with a glass of wine. Wine glasses with a stem or without can be filled with chardonnay or merlot. Or you might want a cabernet or blend. Either way, the wine glasses can also be monogrammed.
Frames with a monogram make a super gift. If you have a photograph of you and the recipient, you can include that. You might want to write a small note or sentiment to put temporarily in the frame. And you can certainly leave the frame empty for them to choose the photograph. Grouping several framed photos on a tray is an attractive way to showcase them. Angle the tray on a coffee table, baby grand piano or console.
Consider a monogrammed shopping bag that is eco-friendly and reusable. Made of 100 percent recycled cotton, they are lightweight and easy to carry. The bags can go to the mall, grocery store or drug store to carry purchases, so you never have to use disposable plastic. Save the environment one bag at a time. Larger tote bags are nice to have on hand for bigger shopping trips. Tuck one inside the other and keep them in the trunk of the car, so they are available anytime. Many of the totes have artsy designs and big city names on them. Use and reuse them as often as you go shopping.
Another gift that is everlasting and can be monogrammed is a Christmas stocking. A stocking personalized so Santa knows who it is for will be something gift recipients can keep forever. Each Christmas when they hang up their stockings, they will remember the one who gave it to them. The stocking can also serve as the wrapping for other gifts. This way the package doubles as a gift too. Fill it with an apron and cooking supplies for someone who loves to cook. Anyone who spends time cooking can use a new apron and utensils. For someone who enjoys exercising and staying on the go, you could put a fancy water bottle in the stocking. Refillable water bottles are globally sustainable and practical for staying hydrated.
