Fab Freebie: Initial Impressions

***This giveaway is no longer accepting entries – get a discount and see who won below!***

Everyone can score 10% off a purchase from Initial Presents with code YHL10 through March. And our two random winners of $75 gift credits are…Angela (who’s ARS initials sound like a pirate talking ’bout its booty) and Cecilia (who’s CRS initials are pretty run of the mill).

You probably know by now that we’ve pretty much never met a monogram that we didn’t like (I know that’s a weird thing for a dude to say, but I like letters and typefaces, sue me). So if you dig that particular brand of classic personalization as much as we do, then you’ll have no trouble burning through the $75 you could win from Initial Presents this week. They’re all about letting you customize their products – from cutting boards and wine glasses to clothing and jewelry. And two of you are gonna win the chance to put your mark on some of ’em.

  • PRIZE: A $75 gift credit to Initial Presents
  • TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the words “MY INITIALS ARE [insert your initials]!” and…
  • BONUS QUESTION: … tell us what you love (or loathe) about your initials. Do they spell something cool (or maybe something embarrassing)? Do they make for a great nickname (kids in high school used to call me JP, for instance)? Are you kinda indifferent about them? Or do you wish you could change them to something more interesting?
  • GIVEAWAY CLOSES: Wednesday, March 16th at 8pm EST

      MY INITIALS ARE JDL. I’ve never spent much time thinking about them, but the “D” always gives me trouble when I have to sign my initials in cursive. It just doesn’t look right with the others.

    My initials are JCG and in a couple months I’ll get married and change them to JGC. I think I’ll have some trouble thinking I’m dislexic for awhile!

      ARD is the abbrevation of a German tv channel! It stands for “Allgemeines Deutsches Fernsehen” or “Nationwide German TV” .. :)

  2. Wendy says


    It makes looking through the Williams Sonoma catalog more interesting, especially when they’re feature monogrammed items!

  3. Virginia says

    My initials are VMW…I like them because I always thought of BMW (fancy!). However, they are boring; nothing changed after I got married. Guess I just like being called last!

  4. Leigh Anne says

    Our monogram is LHD, and I also love personalized items and monogrammed gifts! Even just doing “H” is fun in different fonts and styles – plus it’s pretty easy to find in stores on ornaments, winestoppers, etc.

  5. Jessica says

    MY INITIALS ARE JLF. They used to be JLN, and I’m pretty indifferent to either option–no weird words spelled, but also nothing too exciting about them. :)

  6. Natalie says

    My Initials are…NC. There is nothing special about them other then the abbrivation for North Carolina. I still love them none the less because it’s who i am :)

  7. Abby says

    MY INITIALS ARE…. AJW. I’m indifferent about my initials… nothing special at all! I don’t LOVE my last initial (b/c the name is hard for others to grasp i guess!)… so i waited to change it for 2 years after being married! Oh well… it made for a pretty cool set of initials for my son… LAW!
