Embroidery on a knit, please HELP!

I'm a knitter/crocheter and need some embroidery help!

I've started my Christmas presents and would like to do some embroidered monograms on some of them. I was thinking of just using some really chunky yarn and doing a very simple whipped backstitch but would like to know if anyone has any ideas on something more intricate? This would be on a knit or crochet item so I'm guessing it can't be to intricate? Maybe if I used some sort of backing it would stabilize the fabric more? I have done very little embroidery so talk to me like a child please, lol!

How about some chain stitches? You can do very pretty flowers with them and they usually work well on a knit, I think.
