    We think monogramming gets a bit of a bad rap, sometimes. Sure, personalized gear may populate suburban homes and country clubs statewide (and sometimes initial-embossed pieces tend to lack a certain wow factor), but trust us, despite its uppity affiliation — there’s a way to rock these items without looking like an overly polished prepster.

    That’s where e-tailer Nik’s Naks (could the name be any cuter?) comes in. Founded by Nicole Ben-Dor, Nik’s Naks is a carefully curated shop that houses a crop of must-have monogrammed gear that's fun, wearable, and anything but cheesy. From hip home goods (we have our eye on the coasters) to bright, cheeky clothes — Nik’s Naks brings its emblazoned A-game to the online retail space.

    So, Angelenos, the next time you're in the mood for something a tad personal, peep Nik's Naks for something that's equal parts cool and practical. Oh, and while you’re browsing, be sure to take advantage of this sweet deal Nik’s Naks is serving up, exclusively for R29 readers. Just enter REFINERY at checkout and snag 10% off all purchases. The offer lasts through the month of April, so go ahead and get your initial on!
