This exciting looking gift box arrived on our doorstep last week, a parcel from England for our newest daughter. I’d not come across My 1st Years before – a British online retailer offering personalized baby goods – but their products are delightful. This particular box of goodies is labeled My 1st Sleepover Set, a cute selection of fluffy robe, plush bunny and sheepskin booties. The soft pink footwear is my particular favorite with the rich fuchsia embroidered lettering on the back – absolutely adorable.
Gift personalization really shows the receiver that you thought of them when purchasing their present, and took a little extra time in the process of making your selection. Mark and Graham have an excellent resource on their website to help with your creation: a monogramming etiquette guide. This provides “rules” on how to arrange initials and also offers styling suggestions. Below are some other sites which offer monogrammed items that make excellent gifts:
a – Monograms on Webster – a delightful independent shop specializing in all things monogrammed
b – Aspinal of London – a British retailer that will ship high end leather goods worldwide
c – Personalization Mall – an online option that has personalized products galore
d – Pottery Barn Kids – the retail staple will monogram for custom gift giving
