Based on your reaction to this and the fact that several of you emailed me about the monogrammed sweatshirt I featured last week, I’m guessing that a lot of you love a good monogram. Today, I thought I’d share some of my absolute favorite monogrammed items in minimagpie’s room:
Pick No. 1: The Monogrammed Stationery from Lemon Grace
How precious are the monogrammed cards from luxury stationer Lemon Grace?! I was delighted when the cards arrived, wrapped in beautiful gray and white striped grosgrain ribbon (you know my obsession with a good wrap), and could hardly wait to write mini’s first thank you note on it. I have this set, but I also love these. Mama to bes: this would be great to have on hand for your baby shower thank yous! (And that lucite tray with my monogram on it beneath is available here!)
Pick No. 2: The Monogrammed Pillow
I’m still smitten with the darling applique boudoir pillow ($54) I had made for minimagpie’s nursery. I love all the beautiful, well-priced linens from Charleston-based Southern Linens! (Don’t you die over her little shoes?! Her gliding armchair is this one.)
Pick No. 3: The Monogrammed Tissue Cover
It’s the little things, amirite? I found I was often needing tissues for mini — whether to clean her nasal aspirator or whatever it might be — but found myself hiding her box of Kleenex every time we had guests because the rest of her nursery is just so perfectly appointed. So, I was thrilled to find this elegant linen monogrammed tissue cover ($18) from Etsy store The Happy Crabbers. (Her bows are, as always, the 4″ headbands from PoppyBows. I think we own them in every color…)
Pick No. 4: The Monogrammed Jammies
I splurged on a pair of monogrammed Beaufort Bonnet Company night nights ($62)and even bought myself a matching pair. (They are SO comfortable — made of the softest cotton! Even if you aren’t a mama, you should treat yourself to a pair. So cozy. These are on sale!) The monogram makes them extra special to me, and means that I have her wear them as often as possible before she outgrows them!
Pick No. 5: The Monogrammed Baptism Dish
My sweet sister is minimagpie’s godmother, and she has gifted mini so many incredible gifts. My favorite was this personalized Baptism Dish ($55), engraved with her Baptism date and name. What a beautiful keepsake — the perfect christening gift! I am thinking about pinning it to the inside of this Pottery Barn shadow box and then mounting it on her wall. (This is mini’s cashmere sweater.)
A few other finds:
+I just ordered mini one of these monogrammed long-sleeve polo shirts.
+I love the thickness of burp cloths like these, and BONUS POINTS when they’re monogrammed!
+OMG. Mini plaid gentleman’s pajamas in red and green plaid for Christmas!
