The Monogram Gift Guide For More Personal Presents

Customization might just be what your Christmas gifts need.

Jimmy Choo Made-to-order
We’re very familiar with Jimmy Choo’s Made-to-order service, and it returns especially for the season. The services focuses on granting the client’s special requests, whether it be a special fabrication, an exotic material, or unique color for a special event. You can also have the soles of your bespoke Jimmy Choos monogrammed with initials or numbers to commemorate the occasion. The service ends on December 9.

Kate Spade
Veering away from the typical monogram method, Kate Spade puts a twist into personalization and instead offers interchangeable handbags straps and tassels and stickers in gold metal and leather. The New York-based brand includes monogrammed leather bracelets, engraved jewelry, and oversized initials to truly make the product your own.

Rustan’s Beauty Source Engraving Workshop
For the beauty buff, Rustan’s offers engraving services on purchased scents, brushes, and candles from Rustan’s Beauty Source if you spend a minimum of P5,000. Have your name etched onto your Acca Kappa brush or Diptyque candle during the workshop dates: December 9 (Adora), December 10 (Central Square), December 11 (Alabang Town Center), December 17, (Shangri-La Plaza), and December 18 (Rustan’s Makati).

Burberry Scarf Bar
To celebrate the iconic Burberry cashmere scarves, the Burberry Scarf Bar offers you the full range of classic and lightweight designs made in Scotland. You can choose to customize these as you please, with a monogram service that allows you to pick from a variety of thread colors and a selection of over 30 scarves. The Scarf Bar is available on and in stores.

For those who romanticize their meals and believe that dining is an art, Karen Santos’ Kassa is Santa’s workshop to them. Her embroidered linens are like medals on a tablescape and there’s nothing more beautiful than a monogrammed table napkin beckoning you to come and eat.


Oliver & Maude
Oliver and Maude will engrave your initials on any type of tableware—from acrylic coasters to silverware to wine glasses. One of their most elegant pieces is the glass carafe, a fitting gift for the host in your life.

Cabaña Workshop
Aside from monogrammed linens and bags, Cabaña also offers the service for daintily designed pillow cases, towels and mats.

Laura’s Yard
Another gift suggestion gourmands will adore, Laura’s Yard offers personalized wooden slabs and serving boards for all those cheeses, canapés, and charcuteries frequent to the typical holiday get together.

Not only does the classic Moleskine notebook come in new colors, you could have them monogrammed at their pop-up stores in SM Aura and Greenbelt 5 until the end of December.

The Olive Tree
Finally, The Olive Tree offers box sets of monogrammed table napkins, coasters, pillow cases, and placemats for the ultimate monogrammed collection. But another great gift suggestion would be their cotton linen hankies made special with the receiver’s initials.

The Body Shop
Knowing the demand for personalized gifts during this time of the year, Body Shop comes out with personalized Body Butters designed with adorable animal designs in collaboration with Yago Partal.
