I Love {Monograms} and So Do You

I truly had the best time reading all of your comments when I posed the question “What is your very favorite thing to monogram?”  So many great ideas rolled in that it just seemed smart to compile a comprehensive list for everyone’s reference.

Before I get started, I thought I’d share my top five things to monogram… I mean, why limit ourselves to one.  That was unfair of me to ask.

  1. Oh how I love monograms too! I was so inspired by all the monograms in your house I decided to build wooden valances for my master bedroom windows and put a wooden monogram in the center of one of them. They are in the garage waiting to go up. So excited!

  2. Hi, I would love to get my children’s school bags, lunch boxes, drinks bottles and gym bags monogrammed and I am probably being thick but I don’t know how to go about doing this? Please could you tell me xx

    1. Yes! I have ordered my kids backpacks from pottery barn kids and now ll bean (once they hit kindergarten). Both places offer monogramming on their bags. I have a local girl that does other things for me. Ask around in your area!! Also, look on etsy as there are TONS of sellers with cute monogrammed items.

  3. Where do you find plain boy polo style shirts that aren’t the POLO brand? Just wondering what your favorites are. :)

  4. Next on my list are my “to go” coffee cup, a cutting board & the edge of a tortoise shell bracelet. I’m also doing some cutting boards for Christmas gifts.

    Lots of great ideas here! xoxo

  5. Hi ~ For my things (clothing, stationary, etc), I use my monogram. For the kids, I use theirs. But for things in the home (like your chair with the AW monogram), do you use your monogram or a combination of yours and your husband’s initials? Thanks and happy weekend!

    1. Luckily my AW monogram could be both my first and last initials OR my first initial and his first initial :-) When I do three letter monograms on stuff at home (towels, chairs in my kitchen, various pillows), I use our combined monogram. So, it’s aWw with the A being my first, the W in the middle being our last, and the W on the right being his first. Hope that helps!!

      1. Yes, how lucky!! With three initials, that’s what I do too (linens, towels, pillows) and always wondered when there is only 2 initials, whose initials are included. Thanks for sharing!

  6. What a fun post! I love monogramming my girls’ hair ribbons! Oh! That white bedroom chair! I never get tired of looking at it! It is simply stunning!!!

    1. I have usually just asked for local recommendations. I choose my fabric, take it in to my upholsterer and have him mark where the monogram should go. Then I get it monogrammed and bring it back for recovering. Hope that helps!
