Holiday Gift Guide ~ The Pink Monogram Review & Giveaway

12:01 AM

I am a huge fan of personalized gifts. There is nothing nicer than receiving a gift that has your name or initials on it. You will never confuse your things with someone else's either. :) It has been several years since I have been able to leave the house with children AND my purse. I always take the diaper bag and just throw my things into it. Oh, how I have wished for a purse that could double as a bag for a few diapers and baby items as well as my purse! Today, I have news for you. Just because you are a mom doesn't mean you can't be stylish. I have found that having a monogrammed purse can make you feel very dressed up and always stylish...especially if you are a mom.
The Pink Monogram is a company that was founded by Monica (Rogers) Smith. She herself is a busy mom of four and somehow finds the time to run her business, creating products that she cannot find in stores. The Pink Monogram is known for their monogrammed Clogs...but they also monogram pretty much anything else that you wear/carry. Here is a bit more about Monica and her company...

I was a Greenville County First Grade teacher for over 20 years and always wanted to start my own business. I resigned nine years ago and started a monogramming/internet site. I have not stopped since -- I began manufacturing products that I always looked for in stores, but could never find.

In 2007, I was honored to be nominated for Business Person of the Year by Greenville Magazine.
In 2008 we made the "O" list on and our internet business become a leader in Monogrammed Gifts.  The Pink Monogram again made Oprah's favorite in 2010 when our High Heel Monogrammed Clogs appeared in the July 2010 Magazine.

Dressing my daughter has always been fun and my inspiration. A big thanks to my wonderful family who has supported my constant search for that perfect item!! I have four children that keep me busy in the afternoon with sports and music lessons. I am a busy mom just like you and would love to share my time and energy with you!! Give me a call! (If you call me after 4:00 pm I am usually on the Little League or soccer field.)

Monica sure does sound "real", doesn't she? I spend my days chasing around three small children and often wonder if I am going to survive the day. I don't know how she does it!! Hats off to her for her endeavors and for offering such cute and practical products.
So, for this review I chose to receive the Monogrammed Ikat Bag. I was drawn to this bag because it looks really chic and modern...very cute too. The color of the bag I received is navy blue and the trim is brown. This bag also comes in brown red.
This bag has my initials monogrammed on the front of it...SAO. The font is very elegant and I love how they matched the thread color to the trim of the bag. When I recieved this bag in the mail I was shocked at how large it is! I was expecting a hand bag of sorts. You really cannot tell how big it is until you get it. Looking at the site now, I see that the dimensions are 15" X 12.5" X 5", which is NOT what I was expecting. This bag is totally amazing and not what I expected at much nicer!!
The only thing I don't like is that the monogram closes one pocket on the inside of the purse. It does say this on the description on their website, so it wasn't a surprise. I am just a bit surprised that there hasn't been a way to figure out how to monogram the bag without closing that pocket. No worries though...this bag has plenty of room so I am not worried about one pocket!!
This Ikat Bag would make an amazing diaper bag. I tend to have larger and bulkier items in my diaper bag and so small pockets are not practical for me. THIS is more along the lines of what I need. I can easily see myself taking this bag to the library for my books, or using it as a carry-on. So many uses...just one bag! I love it!! The Monogrammed Ikat Bag retails for $59 and you have your choice when it comes to the font, thread color and monogram. You get a lot of bag for your buck!! :)
