By rights, my first few examples are aprons for kids. They’re designed for a chef’s name placed before purchasing. It’s a great, fun way to get kids feeling like cooking could be a powerful thing!
Then if you venture further into our products, you will begin to see products with monograms, initials and even more names. So why monograms?
Dictionary.com’s helps us out:
Since childhood, I thought of the neighbors with letters on their gates, or names on their towels or pillow cases, as quite happily situated.
I still have a bath towel given to my mother when I was born. Yes, it has my name, Barbara, written in the center of the cutest bunnies. And, yes, I was born in April.
Years later when we married, (some 51 years ago), we received bath towels with my new last name. I would wash them and put them back the same day. That’s how much I loved the feeling.
It was recently I took notice of the unique, custom-made feeling of monograms. We’ve been challenged to buy presents for our grand-children and started to offer gift certificates or check. It didn’t feel the same for us and for them.
There’s got to be that connection to make gift-giving worthwhile. And we’re only scratching the surface with our imaginations.
Well, I have to confess. My recent monogram purchase is not really a gift. It is for our home. It’s on its way, too, so I’m pretty excited! …. a birthday gift for me from Manny! And, I know it’s going to look fabulous in our bright yellow bathroom upstairs!
What do you think I chose?
There are so many ideas and so little time. But we are retired … so maybe we have more time?
