Spring has sprung and that means wedding season is upon us. With the advent of Mad Men and House of Cards, there’s a definite feel that a bit of a return to formal, gracious living is in the air. Regardless of where the bride and groom have registered, some of the most affirming, classic, and romantic gifts you can give are monogrammed.
In the old days, “his” and “hers” towels were thought of as cute, but contemporary personal embroidered and engraved gifts have stepped up the monogram game to wonderful heights. If the bride and/or groom are fans of Don Draper or Frank Underwood, why not create a whole gift set of monogrammed items? There’s no worry about the your budget constraints either, as you can start as simply as some stamped notecards, most of which are available already embossed with the couple’s newly shared last initial. If the couple in question loves to be cozy, and what newlyweds don’t, there’s our line of monogrammed throws, pillows, and even welcome mats.
Last weekend, wandering during a day-trip, we found a great antiques store featuring a selection of vintage cocktail sets, and even ice buckets! Imagine the wow factor and impact of gifting the new couple with a set including an engraved cocktail set, a monogrammed blanket, and a bottle of their favorite libation. There are custom engraving services available at most shopping malls, so you can take your vintage finds in to have them custom-engraved with the monogram. Simply roll up the blanket and place it in the ice bucket so that it cradles the silver or glass bar ware and bottle, and voilà! a perfect, thoughtful, vintage gift that captures the imagination. Your gifts are sure to become treasured family heirlooms, used for decades to come, and provide a wonderful reminder to the couple of their wedding day.
