I love giving gifts, probably more than I like getting them. Watching a family member unwrap something I picked out especially for them gives me butterflies in my stomach, and I love seeing a friend's face light up when they open something I got them. Obviously, gift giving isn't the only way to show someone you love them, but it is a nice way of saying hey, I saw this and thought of you because you're the coolest. If you're looking for personalized holiday gifts, you better jump on Mark & Graham's Cyber Monday sale.
Mark & Graham Cyber Monday promotions are major, as the retailer is offering 25 percent off entire orders plus free shipping and monogramming with the code "FRIENDS." If you haven't heard of the brand, Mark & Graham is part of the Williams Sonoma, Pottery Barn, and West Elm family, and what sets it apart is that everything from the site can be personalized. The store has everything from suitcases and purses to scarves and specialty ornaments.
Some people think monograms are overrated, but I love them; they're such an easy way to add a personal touch to a gift, and as someone who misplaces things often, it's a lot easier to find something when it literally has your name on it. I don't monogram everything I own these days like I did in college (yes, I was in a sorority), but I've still got a couple classily 'grammed items that I love. And honestly, marking your wallet with your name just makes sense if you're prone to dropping things on the sidewalk.
So for anyone looking for a speciality gift for the holidays or something to treat yourself with, read on for a few of my favorite items you can buy from Mark & Graham on Cyber Monday. Psst: the sales end at 11:59 p.m. tonight, so be sure to look at their deals before time runs out.
