SheFinds Reader Question: I am looking into maid of honor gifts, and I am interested in finding a monogrammed tote. The only ones I've seen and liked are what is featured at Lands End, but I want something a little more stylish than what is offered there (more glamorous than preppy). Do you happen to have any recommendations?
Lillian Vernon monograms their totes ($25) for no extra cost, and these leather bags–particularly the black version–are quite sophisticated.
If you're looking for something a little more fun, Pottery Barn will personalize their leopard or zebra-striped tote bags ($49) for no additional cost.
But here's another idea: pick a stylish tote you love, like this Stella McCartney LeSportsac Everyday tote ($350), and get it monogrammed. It really doesn't matter whether the design includes a special spot for monogrammed initials. You can be creative!
Embroidery companies across the country specialize in monogrammed initials onto everything from sheets to bags. I'm sure there's one near your hometown, but just in case, here are a few services to get you started: The Monogram Shop (East Hampton, NY), Amazing Monogramming (Wheatland, WY), A Little Bit of This (Chicago, IL), and Michelle's Monogramming (Cypress, TX).
