DFGToday’s Find, Mark and Graham, comes highly recommended from my friend Lynda. Mark and Graham, part of the retail family that includes Pottery Barn, West Elm and Williams-Sonoma, is a shop dedicated to high-quality personalized products. Just about anything you can think of that is ripe for personalization, Mark and Graham offers, like a great line of monogramed linens and jewelry.

About Mark and Graham: “We believe that a mark is more than a symbol; it’s an artful mingling of typography and design that turns a gift into a personal gesture. It can be bold and boisterous or subtle and refined. It can join families together or celebrate individuality. It can be an inside joke or honor the literal beauty of a name. When it comes to making your mark, we hope you think of us for unique typefaces and beautiful objects. Mark and Graham: next-generation personalization.”

The Mark and Graham site is very well designed and offers many ways to search for just the right product. You can search by category, by holiday, or by what would make the perfect gift. The latter being really great as most of the products Mark and Graham offers just scream gift! Next time I am stumped for just the right thing to send someone as a gift, I am going to start here.

DFG2Lynda, who has made purchases from Mark and Graham in the past, reports that their items arrive in spectacular packaging and make a great impression.

Of course Lynda did not send me a gift from Mark and Graham, but if she ever does, I would hope it would be something like this Crystal Decanter:

“Mouth-blown lead crystal creates the ultimate decanter. Weighty and classy, decant your favorite whiskey, whether it’s bourbon, rye or scotch.”
