May My Monogram Box Review

Subscription services have gotten pretty popular, but I'm still always amazed at the creative new ones that pop onto the scene. My Monogram Box may be one of the most unique boxes yet!

My Monogram Box sends fashionable items made just for you! As you can guess by the name, each item is monogrammed with your initials. They have two different subscription options:
  • Single Item Box - $19.95 per month for one specially chosen item, valued at at least $40
  • Delux Custom Box - $34.95 per month for three specially chosen items, valued at at least $70
Currently they ship only to the contiguous 48 states (sorry Alaska, Hawaii, and U.S. territories). Their FAQ page also says they ship to international locations, including Canada. When I typed in my address on the check out page it said shipping was free (I live in New York).

This review is for the May Deluxe Box. When you subscribe you'll receive a questionnaire via email to fill out so that they can get to work on creating your customized items. The questions included what name I'd like to use if they personalized something with my full name and not just initials, my top three favorite colors, favorite monogram fonts (see photos below), my age, t-shirt size, if I had pierced ears, and if I preferred a standard or king pillow case.

The initials are listed in the order shown above, and there are four fonts to choose from.

I was really excited to see what I'd receive. I didn't own anything monogrammed prior to getting this box so no matter what it would be something I knew I didn't have already! The total retail value of my items was $74.

I received a t-shirt in my favorite color, an umbrella, and a cup wrap. Everything is so cute! My initials are DHS, and I knew from the questionnaire that they would be ordered by first name, last name, then middle name, but it still throws me off that they're listed as DSH on the items.

The Classic T-Shirt is form fitting, so if you like your shirts looser I would recommend requesting a size up when filling out the questionnaire. I chose a small and it fits fine, but I just wanted to advise for anyone who doesn't like tighter fitting shirts. And I listed green as my favorite color on the questionnaire.

The Umbrella is black with purple writing (I listed purple as one of my favorite colors) and came at the perfect time. Spring is rainy season and I like to have umbrellas everywhere. I keep one in my desk at work and one in my car, and now I'll leave this one in my apartment.

The Cup Wrap is something I never would have thought to order but it's really practical and a great idea! I love the stripe pattern. The monogram is on a light purple background, which kind of got washed out due to the lighting in the photo above, but I think you can still get a good idea of what it looks like in person.

I think My Monogram Box is a stellar deal for $34.95. If that's not in your budget, don't forget that they also have a one item box for $19.95. I know monogramming can be pricey, so this is a fun and affordable way to add some unique items to your monogrammed collection!
Bottom Line: If you're looking for a unique box for yourself or to gift to a friend, I think My Monogram Box is an excellent choice! I love that they customize everything to your interests (favorite colors, etc.) and give you lots of options for the designs.
