While we’ve seen the coronavirus pandemic bring out the worst in people, we’ve also seen it bring out the best too, with many people sending out care packages and carrying out small acts of kindness. With the lockdown being extended yet again, a lot of us will be looking at more creative ways to let our loved ones know we’re thinking of them as opposed to the usual WhatsApp message or Facetime session. For those of us who are wanting to get a little bit more creative, now is a great time to put together a few gifts with a bit of a personal touch. In particular, tools like Monogram Maker can be a great place to start at putting together something special.
What is Monogram Maker?
Monogram Maker is a free tool that you can use to create your own stylish monogram designs. It’s easy to use and there’s hundreds of different combinations. I made this one in less than five minutes!
This handy little monogram app can be used to create designs for blogs, wedding invitations, pins and more, but you can also use it to add a personal touch to homemade gifts. Not sure where to start? I’ve put together a few ideas to get you started.
Little Lockdown Gift Ideas
Why not go a step further with the classic care package and add a finishing touch with a personalised note card or gift tag? Simply use the monogram designer to create a design that the recipient will love – I went with a cat theme, obvs – enter your email to download it, and you can print it out on your chosen material.
Whether you use this to make a little note card or perhaps even decorate the gift bag or box your care package is in, it’s the perfect finishing touch!
Those who know me know that I LOVE a scrapbook. Back in my student days when I had more free time, it would be a go-to gift for my nearest and dearest. They’re so easy to make and you can create something truly unique. At the very minimum, all you’ll need is an empty photo album or notebook, a few coloured fineliners and some of your favourite snaps of you and the recipient. Finish it off by printing out a personalised monogram and stick to the front of the book, and there you have it!
I know when I’ve been struggling with my mental health, having a journal to hand has been a great comfort. Similarly, if you know someone who’s going through a tough time, a thoughtful gift could be a journal for them to keep track of their thoughts. Plus, you can brighten up a basic notebook with the help of attaching a monogram to the front too. Again, print it off on some coloured card or paper and stick to the front. You could even write a short message inside to make them smile!
