Let's Get Personal

This post is sponsored by Things Remembered, as always all opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that support The Classic Brunette!
 Hey friends, long time no talk! With Mother's Day and moving, things have been extremely hectic and stressful. I took two weeks off unexpectedly due to just being completely overwhelmed. I was avoiding Mother's Day posts like the plague, and then suddenly my move was upon me. On Wednesday alone my roommate and I had to pack up all our belongings in a uhaul, unpack them and pack them again into pods, and we're currently on the drive up to Seattle! It's been crazy to say the least, but settling in at our new apartment will make it all worth it...hopefully, ha!

On another note, today I'm making my way back into blogging this week to share one of my favorite places to get personalized goods. Y'all know how much I love monogrammed pieces (my necklace barely ever comes off!) and I'm so glad I stumbled upon Things Remembered. This site has so many great items and is my one stop shop for personalization and beautiful gifts for all occasions. They have something for everyone, although I'm not ashamed to say that I spend most of my time shopping for myself, ha! Check out a few of my favorites below and see how to share a little personalized love, because there's never a bad time to give a little something to ones you love!


 Although I'm not the best gifter that I know (far from it actually!) I do try to get things right when searching for that perfect something. When I get a gift that isn't just a generic run of the mill item, it stands out, so it's something I try to implement in my gifting as well. It's just that extra something special that really lets the person know you care or are going the extra mile. Monograms are one of my favorite ways to personalize, which you'll see in the bracelet below, however the best thing about Things Remembered is that they have multiple ways to personalize! Depending on the product you can add a traditional monogram, names, dates, custom quotes, etc all with a large variety of fonts and styles. It's basically the personalization holy grail.

The site is mostly gifting, however like I said those gifts can still be for yourself. I was in desperate need of both an everyday tote bag (anyone else carry a ridiculous amount of stuff around with them at all times?) and a makeup bag, so the blush leather tote and cosmetics bag were the perfect find! The square cosmetics bag is no longer in stock, however I love the round one (linked above) that's on the site right now, especially because the tassel matches the one on the tote! I'm so thankful that I found such beautiful matching pieces, but the cosmetics bag was completely necessary for me. My old one was practically falling apart from years of use, and I wanted something that looked more adult rather than something I purchased at Forever 21 when I was in high school. The color is beautiful, and I love having that personalized detailing. I'm already using both for my road trip up to Seattle, so if you know you'll be taking either one of these items anywhere, I can tell you they definitely hold up!


 PIN FOR LATER!


I've been looking for a good monogram bracelet to match the necklace I have, and this script circle bracelet is exactly what I wanted. I've found it's hard to find high quality bracelets at most places, especially when trying to find ones that I can personalize. Most I've seen either look cheap or are horribly designed, but the ones on Things Remembered were all beautiful. You can personalize the majority of them to the fullest extent, and most even come with keepsake boxes so you can store them nicely! If you're someone who likes to give more of a personal message than just a monogram or the person's name, the bracelets are a great option because there are so many to chose from. 

I have my monogram one, but I also chose to create custom roman numeral and birthstone, and inscription knot bracelets as well. The roman numeral bracelet is especially great if you're looking to gift a significant other, or really anyone who you share an important date with (or if you know of a date that is special to them). These would be great for birthdays, anniversaries, graduation dates, or anything noteworthy. I personally dedicated my bracelet to a memory of my parents. I put the date of their wedding anniversary so that I would always have a symbol of their love with me. I also did the same with my love knot bracelet below, I put a quote that represented them, but you could also put a date or a name! If you aren't sure of a date, you can't go wrong with the birthstone nameplate option! 

 I recognize not everyone's into accessories, however everyone needs home goods! Things Remembered has a variety of homeware, but my favorite item by far is their Lenox Monogram Teacup. I had mine made with a script 'S' and it looks simply beautiful. I can't wait to use it in my new kitchen during those rainy Seattle mornings! Not into cups? Don't worry, they have a whole home section for you to browse, my favorites are the custom soaps and doormats!


While writing this post I've been going back and forth on Things Remembered's website and I keep finding more stuff that I love, and since I'm moving into a new apartment I definitely need a few things....like maybe this acrylic pitcher for the summer, haha! (I would totally engrave it with the phrase "when life gives you lemons" and then fill it with lemonade, how cute, right?) Not only does their site have something for everybody, but it's makes gift giving, or just purchasing an item for yourself much more fun and personal. I've already been inspired to start planning the gifts for upcoming birthdays and holidays since there are SO many options! Plus, I'm always a believer in treating yourself, and Things Remembered is the perfect place to do it!

  6. Personalized gifts are so sweet! I feel like they really show that you took the time to think of the person that you're gifting for. Back when I worked in retail, Things Remembered had the store next to where I worked in the mall- I remember they always had cute stuff!
