When shopping from the couple's wedding registry isn't an option—for example, if they're newly engaged and haven't created one yet, or if you're looking for an additional way to surprise the happy couple—monogrammed wedding gifts are our go-to recommendation. Everyone can appreciate a gift that's thoughtful and personalized, and if the couple has decided to share a last name, their monogram is an exciting way to mark the start of a new life together. From embroidered blankets to bar cart essentials and wall art, these monogrammed gifts are also great for couples who have recently moved in together or purchased a house. We're sharing some of our favorite options in a range of styles and price points below.
Shop these monogrammed wedding gifts if you're looking for stylish, customizable ideas that the couple will love.
