Customizable Gifts To Be Remembered

We're all about the details. Every monogram you see is foil stamped by hand in our Ivy City studio. Adding a personalized monogram takes your gift from thoughtful to memorable in an instant. Whether combining the last initials of your newlywed friends on a photo journal (did you hear? We offer "&" as an option now!), or a simple monogrammed notebook for everyday thoughts and musings, you can't go wrong with customized gold foil details.

Easily type in a monogram on each product page to see a live preview of the finished product. Choose between two fonts, traditional serif or modern sans serif, for an extra personal touch.


The Notebook

Personalize this classic keeper of everyday things for an easy & thoughtful custom gift that anyone can put to good use.

Day Book

Gift it as a daily journal or to document a new stage of life like embarking into parenthood or beginning college—the Day Book is a personal keepsake in the making (and the perfect canvas for a serif monogram).

Photo Journal

Adorned with her initials makes this the perfect gift for mom (extra points if you fill it with photos of the grandkids).
