We’ll admit it: we’ve been obsessed with monogramming ever since our school days when our initials were proudly emblazoned on our backpacks. Even now, who can resist a mug with their initials or a personalized tote bag?
With the New Year coming up the Save the Dates have surely started rolling in for next wedding season. But why wait until then to celebrate? The perfect holiday gift for a couple getting married next year is something with their new monogram! Trust us, they’ll love displaying their new initials. For some ideas to jump start your shopping, here are a few of our favorite monogrammed items for married-couples-to-be.
(Tip: Not sure what font or color to buy? Take a cue from their Save the Date! It’s usually a good reflection of the couple’s overall aesthetic.)
Waterford Wedding Flutes
What better wedding gift to give to newlyweds than a pair of monogrammed wedding flutes they can use for their first toast and for years to come to remind them of their special day. Waterford’s elegant and stylish crystal designs make their flutes the perfect gift for any type of wedding.
L.L. Bean Tote Bag
I think we can all agree that tote bags are one of life’s greatest inventions. Who needs a small purse when you can fit just about anything in your versatile tote bag? Fill it with honeymoon essentials and it’s the perfect present for an engaged couple. L.L. Bean makes the best (and most classic) version on the market, and guarantees their products for life, so you’re gifting them with an ever-lasting present (how’s that for a selling point!)
Plush Bath Towels
Chances are bath towels are already a wedding registry item, but if you want to make your gift that much more special, opt for these Annie Selke Stella bath towels. They’re made of Egyptian cotton (fancy, huh?), and are basically like heaven in a towel.
Cute Coffee Mugs
Whether it’s a quirky saying or a pretty pattern, we all have a favorite decorated mug to fill up our coffee or tea in. So before you buy a simple ceramic mug from the wedding registry, think about choosing a handmade personalized mug for the bride and groom. Etsy has a ton to choose from.
A Swanky Serving Tray
No one loves to entertain more than newlyweds, so give your favorite couple a gift that’ll impress their guests AND remind them of their wedding every time they host a dinner party.
