    @futuremrsgo:  Good question! I think it’s kind of weird. I’m pretty surprised by how big it is. But I think it just depends on individual taste!

    I don’t really get it tbh. I don’t feel the need to put my name or initials on things, I know who I am…I especially never got the SATC “Carrie” necklace. Why would I put my own name around my neck?

    I really don’t like monogrammed stuff or actually personalised stuff (with names and stuff) as a whole

    I love monogrammed stuff! I don’t really know why haha. My MIL got me a monogrammed necklace for my bday with my new last name’s initial. It just felt really special, like they were welcoming me into the family.

    I never really understood what the point of it was.

    I voted sometimes. Last year when I started working PT for retailer, in their home department, I had to process alot of monograms. Before then, I thought how old fashioned. But I turns out I really liked some designs and color combos.

    I like it within reason. I have a cute delicate silver bracelet with my monogram on it which I like, but I don’t feel the need to like…embroider my sheets, towels, and the pets. 🙂

    LOVE. I’ve always had a thing for monograms, used to have monogrammed sweaters, wear a necklace with my first initial on it, etc. etc.

    I like it on some things.  I think hand towels with a monogram in the half bath are cute.  I think it would be great on luggage, maybe on a robe, on a makeup bag, etc.  I would consider it on a throw pillow for my bed if the monogram itself was really pretty.  I gave my SO a monogrammed flask. But I wouldn’t walk around with my monogram on my shirt or on a tote or anything- it just seems kind of weird.  So basically, I like it for things that aren’t public or where having your name on stuff just makes sense (luggage).

    @futuremrsgo:  I think it’s a trend right now.  I don’t really like it being overdone in the wedding world but DH and I have a wooden monogram on our front door that we used at our wedding (I promise that was the only thing monogrammed!)

    I love love love monograms!!!! It’s nice to have a personalized touch to things 🙂 I think they’re tacky on tshirts though.

    I love monograms!  I just think they look classic and timeless.  I think they can be overdone though!

    @Big Truck:  that is such a sweet gift omg!

    @vorpalette:  +1

    I love monograms. Necklaces, sweaters, heatstamps on handbag tags, etc love it all and I think FI’s initials on his sleeve cuff is so distinguished.

    I can think of one extreme instance where it’s super tacky…my stepmom and dad have the same initials. They’ve been married about 6 years. She’s kinda “nouveau” and she was sooo um excited(?) to be married to my dad and move into our house she promptly had part of the driveway and front walkway ripped up and had their initials inlaid into the brick. My first time back home after this my skin was crawling as I walked up the driveway to the house because I could practically see it from the street. Like who does that? The real horror came when I followed the dog into the back grounds and saw that she had done a smaller version on the patio. UGH!
