I’m thrilled that you’re here! I am a quite the introvert, and well, I would much rather let my creations speak for me. But, I thought I’d share a little of “The Story” behind Monogram Avenue.
I fell in love with personalized gifts when I was about 10 or 11 years old! One of my grade school teachers gifted her entire class with their own set engraved personalized pencils for Christmas one year. I had never received a personalized gift before she gave us that set of special pencils that day. I had never seen my name on anything other than a piece of paper. That day was so special for me!
Sadly, I no longer have that set of special pencils, but what I still have is a passion for creating custom gifts and personalized home decor for you! That set of personalized pencils from my grade school teacher sparked a passion in me for personalized gifts that has lasted decades. I was so delighted to see my name printed just for me – it made me feel truly special. Years later, I wanted to help others experience that same joy. So about 15 years ago I launched Monogram Avenue for the first time. During the years since first opening, I’ve had some bumps and closed shop for awhile, but my passion never left. Now I’ve reopened and I’m sharing my passion for personalized gifts and home decor with you!
I take pride in and love creating cherished gifts adorned with peoples’ names, initials or meaningful designs, giving each item a personal touch. A customized gift demonstrates thoughtfulness – it shows the recipient that you pay attention to who they are as an individual. Personalizing a gift with a monogram, favorite color, inside joke or meaningful date makes it truly one-of-a-kind. When someone receives a gift tailored just for them, they can feel the care that went into honoring their uniqueness. My hope at Monogram Avenue is that the personalized gifts and home decor I create will not only delight recipients when they first receive them, but that these special items will continue to be cherished and spark joyful memories for years to come!
So…what may I create for you today?
