Hi, loves! Emma here. I love monogrammed bridesmaid gifts: they’re personal and custom-made just for your recipient. Plus, since it has her initial on it, she’ll wear it / carry it / treasure it forever. We’ve hand-picked twelve of our favorite monogrammed things to share with you today. Which of these is your favorite? I’ve got my eye on the cosmetic pouch below in yellow… and that chic pearl bracelet!

Tea towels for wedding showers. I know, quite specific, no? Let me explain. It all started when I spotted these tea towels over at Ruff House Art. You see, I have a thing for chevron print and, well, Jill + Brian’s design was pretty amazing. Not only do I love pretty prints, but I love tea towels. (I got it from my mother, who loves them as much as I.) Right around the same time, I heard from our pal Sara of Sara C Accessories who has been whipping up tea towels in her design kitchen, so I thought… okay, this is a thing. And while we don’t normally talk about finds for the home (we have that + more coming up soon on Emmaline Baby & Home, which is going to be awesome), but tea towels make amazing wedding shower gifts. If you do decide to give tea towels for wedding shower gifts, you should turn them into a tea towel cake — you can get the directions here. And, you should pick tea towels that really resonate with the recipient (it doesn’t have to be wedding related). To inspire you, we’ve rounded up twenty-one of the most amazing tea towels that have cute, clever, sweet, or downright hilarious designs. So, grab a cup of coffee (make mine a double!) and get ready as we dive right in… Oh, and you have to admit, a pretty tea towel really does spruce up the place. Enjoy!
Tea Towels for Wedding Showers
First, here’s that chevron print I was talking about. Cute, right? I also love #2, #4 is great for a wedding present, the one about ordering pizza for dinner is fantastic, and #21 because it’s hilarious.

Emmaline Bride is the handmade wedding blog and we strive to promote the best in handmade wedding gifts, decor, attire, and more (see The Marketplace). Today we’re sharing a handful of our favorite non registry wedding gifts to inspire you, including an art print that is being given away to one lucky reader. How’s that for an awesome Monday?
