Lately I've been wanting to get everything in my apartment monogrammed, I even have a box of stuff just waiting to be sent to the right monogram place (any suggestions in the Boston area?). Anyway, I got thinking about all things monogrammed and here is a collection of some of my favorites
Dabney Lee personalized cell phone cases
Have you seen the new Design Darling boutique? If not you must go visit, it's super cute! I just love these monogrammed salt and pepper shakers. I mean pull these babies out during a back yard BBQ and you most certainly will be the hostess with the mostess.
La Plates has the best selection of personalized plates! If we are talking backyard BBQ's these are a total must have. It's also owned by a fellow Kappa Kappa Gamma sister so I really have to give them some love. L&L
Monogram Inc. has some of the most amazing and sophisticated monogram styles I've seen. They customize your very own monogram style with 1-3 initials and I'm just smitten. Its not cheap, but if you are getting married soon having your very own monogram would be perfection.
Speaking of getting married and monograms, there is a certain famous gals monogram on that site. Can you spot it? (Hint: the marriage only lasted 72 days)
My very best friends gave me this monogrammed necklace for my 30th birthday and I've hardly taken if off since. There are tons of sites making them now, but two that I'd heard a lot about are Max & Chloe and Jennifer Zeuner
Patricia from PVE is one of the sweetest, nicest bloggers out there and she also happens to be super talented. I just LOVE her personalized monograms and I think they make the perfect personalized stationery.
I just recently got the silver tag on my keychain monogrammed and I love how it came out. These other keychains are super cute! Pink acrylic keychain, gold enamel keychain, or make your own needlepoint key fob with this kit.
No monogram list is complete without a mention of Leontine Linens. I wish I could just call them up and order one of everything- I mean their monograms are ahhh-mazing. While I save up my hard earned pennies or until I have a first born to offer up, I'm loving this more affordable jewelry round.
These coasters would make the perfect coffee table or bar tray accessory. Both would make a lovely hostess gift as well. They are from Horchow and Iomoi.
Graphic Image has really great leather calenders and journals and of course they would not be complete without your monogram. I have a blue croc refillable journal and I love it!
I think I put the LLBean Boat and Tote on every list I make, but I really love it that much. That being said, its not complete without a personalized name or monogram on it. The photo on the right is from EAS's blog, she had hers custom monogrammed at a local place and I just LOVE hers.
A lovely wedding or hostess gift would be a set of linen monogrammed napkins. In fact my very good friend Stephanie gave me a set for my wedding- of course the monogram is in orange and I love them!
My Grandma loves a good game of Bridge and in fact plays 2-3 times a week with her friends. I gave her a set of these Tiffany playing cards for Christmas a few years ago and they were a big hit. I cant imagine a more chic ladies poker night with these personalized blue and green playing cards.
I love me some fancy monogrammed bedding! There are about a million places out there that do monogrammed pillowcases and bedding- my favorite fairly inexpensive sources are Etsy, Land's End & Garnet Hill.

Last but certainly not least are one of my favs and thats a good monogrammed hand towel or tea towel. Just like bedding, monogrammed hand towels are super easy to find. I think that personal touch make any old kitchen or bathroom extra special. The ones above are from: West Elm, Pottery Barn, Horchow, and Lands End.
I had to control myself and stop, otherwise this post would never get published. I could go on and on with all the things that I love monogrammed, the options really are endless.
So tell me, what monogrammed things do you love?
