I’m obsessed with monograms. Maybe it’s the timelessness or that they feel so precious because they are made just for you. Regardless, I think a monogrammed gift can feel oh-so-special because it can mark a new initial (wedding), a new arrival (baby), a new milestone (graduation), or a new year
(birthday) with someone special (anniversary). No matter what occasion you’re celebrating, there’s lots of options
Urban Chic: Survival of the Hippest lets you show some love to the technophiles and technologistas in your life. With options like pendants and money clips that can be personalized with a twitter handle or hashtag, this is a gift sure to be “Liked” by the socially savvy set. You can opt to add stones like diamonds, rubies, emerald, sapphires and also select your material (silver, gold, white gold, rose gold) you have some control over price (starting at $59.95).
