I think Reese Witherspoon said it best. “If it’s not moving, monogram it!”
I live in the heart of the south, where our cloth napkins are monogrammed, luggage, gifts for weddings and babies, even bedding, shower curtains and silverware! Embroidery isn’t a quick afterthought. It takes time, planning, patience and experience to do it well. It also takes the right tools. It can elevate a store-bought gift into something really special.
Our diaper bags that are trimmed in ricrac or white piping are the perfect baby gift! And don’t let the navy and light blue bags lean exclusively towards boys. A curly vine monogram for a little girl in the coordinating white piping is gorgeous! And a light pink monogram would really pop on the navy. Our white pique blankets are the perfect blank canvas for a name or monogram! Paired with the coordinating bib and burp cloth, and it’s the quintessential baby shower gift.
Also, graduation will be here before you know it. And monogramming our linen bags would be the gift every senior would love to carry into their first years of college. Choose a duffle, cosmetic bag and train case – personalize each piece and it looks like a million bucks! Or for an understated, classic gift, personalizing one of the linen bible covers, and including a family bible is a touching, heartfelt present.
I love to monogram or appliqué and I try to find a way to incorporate it into most of the gifts I give. It’s thoughtful, and most importantly, personal. And isn’t that what we all want when we receive a gift?
