Tell them the story and laugh about it. Who cares about the monogram. Plus it may make them smile every time they see it.

Yes, I would give them anyway. I think it’s stupid how monograms go first – last – middle. It should be in order!

I would say the same, just tell them about your mistake and laugh about it.  I don’t think too many people will see them in their bathrobe anyways so it’s not like it will be a huge deal.

Give it to them. Definitely makes a great story and really not many people are going to see them.

I think it makes it even more special – I would laugh hysterically if that happened!

I didn’t even know that monograms went first, last, middle lol.  If I was on the receiving end of your gift, I wouldn’t even KNOW!  Just give them.  Totally up to you whether to make them privy to your mistake.

OMG I’m so glad we’re not alone!!! My Fiance bought these cooler chairs for his groomsmen and the exact same thing happened!!!!! We have so much time I think he is going to take them to an embroidery place and let them know what happened and see if they can fix it BUT I think since a robe is something your girls will only wear in their own home, give it to them anyway, it is a cute mistake! lol

What a great gift idea! And honestly, I’d rather have it go first middle last…I think the other way is a little strange! Your girls will love the gift!

Tell them!  Bet they won’t care.

My parents had this same issue with ordering a wine cooler only it was the companies fault, or I’d never know it goes first-last-middle (which I don’t like anyhow).

OK, there’s this commercial on TV with Neil Patrick Harris, and the monogram on his door goes nPh! I noticed this in an intoxicated state last night and had to write myself a note to tell you this later XD So maybe there’s more than 1 good way to do it
