7 things you didn’t think about personalizing, but should

When most people think about personalizing items, monograming is first to come to mind. 

Here at Hadden & Ev, we do monogramming and so much more. From diamonds, to tigers, to Shar pies ( Oh, my!), the possibilities for customizing are truly endless. 

If you are thinking about getting one of your most-loved leather pieces customized or even wanting to bring new life to a hard-loved piece - we can help you. Here are a few ideas to get you started that aren't your typical handbag!


1. Jewelry or Ring Box

Have a special case for your favorite jewels and gems. Or even put your new monogram on your engagement ring box for something truly meaningful. 

Here is a travel jewelry case we recently painted. It is currently available for purchase

2. Passport and Luggage Tag

Love to travel? Want to make your upcoming trip extra memorable? We can create a matching passport and luggage tag set catered just to you! Whether you are planning for your honeymoon, your first solo trip to South Africa, or just want a design you can't miss - we can help turn your dream into a reality.

Here is a matching passport and luggage tag set that would be great for some newlyweds! Personalization available. 

3. Briefcase 

There are so many possibilities when it comes to personalizing a briefcase. We personally love creating a "secret" design underneath the opening flap to reveal your ideal design. Thus keeping things both professional and personal. 

Here is our most recent briefcase design reveal. We hand painted this adorable Shar Pei pup and monogram. 

4. Laptop Case / Sleeve

You already have a cute case on your laptop, so why not take it to the next level with a custom hand painted design? No monogram required. Here is a classic Gucci leather laptop sleeve for under $500 from Rebag (our preferred choice to buy pre-loved designer items!)

5. Carry-on Luggage

We already know you are fabulous, so of course you want to travel in style. When you elevate your carry-on bag you can count on never mistaking it for someone else's again, plus you can tailor your bag to your personal style. #TravelGoals

Here is our most recent carryon bag we've painted. It is a Louis Vuitton Keepall 50 with a pink ombre middle monogram customization. 

6. Pen Case

Sign a lot of papers with that fancy pen of yours? High-quality pens can make memorable  gifts that are cherished for years. Adding a the touch of personalization can make it even more meaningful. Here is a pen case from Louis Vuitton on The RealReal. 


7. Slide Shoes

Forget boot and sneaker personalizations! Get your favorite slides customized to epitomize you. Even better, get a pair of matching slides with your bestie, your mom, or even your SO. We love matching! Here are some classic black YSL slides from The RealReal. 

We hope you have some inspiration for your next personalization! We can't wait to help make your vision a reality.
