The homegrown label has moved beyond customised, hand-bound notebooks to leather accessories like pouches, wallets, bags and luggage tags. Metallic foil hot-stamping of each piece up to 15 letters is available for a token $30. The accessories are made of sumptuous, coloured leather, and we’d like to collect them all, thanks.

Burberry Doodle Bag

The British luxury brand’s new Doodle bag is the most fun branded bag we’ve seen in a while. And while you can’t customise the doodle (yet), you can have it monogrammed at the Burberry boutique at Marina Bay Sands by an in-house calligrapher.

Pretty trinkets are virtually guaranteed to draw squeals of delight from your BFFs, especially if they’re made with semi-precious stones like these friendship bracelets from Monica Vinader. What’s even better? The complimentary in-store engraving service means that you can make each one unique by engraving a meaningful word or phrase aside from the usual name and initials.

Kipling’s fun, colourful bags get even more unique with the You’re Sew Kipling embroidery embossing service, which is charged at $10 for selected bag and accessory designs. You can pick the colour of the thread and from three font types. Available at all Kipling boutiques.

Monogramming too basic for you (and your fashionista loved one)? Aside from monogramming, the French luxury house also offers complimentary trunk painting (with the purchase of a Louis Vuitton trunk luggage) exclusively at its Island Maison Marina Bay Sands store. We’d happily settle for an LV purse sexily hot-stamped with our initials though.

Why gift the man in your life with a pair of shoes when you can get him a monogrammed pair instead? Timberland’s customization service for the men’s classic boat shoe and boot allows you to go even further by selecting the fine details of your customised footwear, like the material, colour, and yes, monogramming it with the wearer’s name. The service is also available for selected women’s and children’s shoe designs. Price varies according to the customization preferences.

We’ve lusted over this Aussie label’s monogrammable (and highly Instagrammable) leather accessories online, and with its first local store at Robinsons Heeren, you can now get them embossed on the spot. We love the stylish phone cases (that come in a Pantone chart of colours) and the 100 per cent Saffiano leather bags, especially with sexy gold embossing. There’s a comprehensive men’s range too, and also a vegan range. Embossing of four initials is complimentary, and embossing 5 to 10 characters cost a modest $30.

Embroidery services start at $3 for a small illustrated design and $5 up to 10 letters.
