Monogrammed eye masks give you VIP status on the airplane. You are a frequent flier and not afraid to show it. Iomoi's personalized version comes with big block letters so you can go incognito but not completely.

My sister bought these Mark and Graham Pill Cases that hold two weeks worth of pills as gifts last year and they were a huge hit. Choose your monogram style for that personal touch.

I have a thing for hairdryers. They have to be good and work fast. The idea of a dryer doing it's job in half the time at half with weight of regular ion dryers is appealing, so Harry Josh's Pro Tools Hairdryer sounds like a worthwhile investment.  Plus, it is in a cool Farrow and Ball-ish shade of green.

Have that hard to shop for person on your list? For those that have everything, a cashmere travel throw is always a nice gesture. Queen of Cashmere has this beautiful black and white blanket with it's own monogrammed case.
