Monogrammed wedding gifts have a timeless flair that can range from preppy to modern. It's not just bath towels and stationery these days; you can find a wide variety of goods to match the couple's personality and style. Do they lean more bohemian, modern, traditional or trendy? Do they have a lot of decor in their home or are they more minimalist? No matter what, there's a monogrammed gift perfect for them.

In general, monograms are often found on practical items that can get lots of use. Remember that most monogrammed gifts are not returnable, so choose wisely. But don't forget to have fun with it. If you love it, chances are that they will too. Just note many traditional monograms consist of three letters: Their shared surname in the middle, with each couple's first initial on the side. Traditionally, the bride's initial is first, though modern conventions can be more laidback. If you're shopping for two grooms, two brides or even a couple that won't share a surname, you can still incorporate their monogram, traditional or not, in a variety of gifts. Other options include the single shared surname initial or the first initials of each person separated by a line, a plus sign or an ampersand. Now with these tips at the front of your mind, let's get into the gifts!
