Now *This* is the Ultimate Bridesmaid Gift Box

Now *This* is the Ultimate Bridesmaid Gift Box | by Deighan Design |

I was emailing with a bride the other day (for anonymity purposes, we’ll just call her M) about bridesmaid gifts. “There are too many options,” she said, “how am I supposed to pick just one?” It’s honestly a common problem! But there’s an easy way to put things in perspective. First, remember why you’re giving a gift in the first place: to show your sincere appreciation. Don’t over-think the gift: as long as you give something you know she will enjoy and will be happy to receive, you’ve done your job.

If you’re wondering how to pick just one, you’ll love this new option: the Bridesmaid Gift Box from Deighan Design. You won’t have to stress over what to pick, since they take the guesswork out of it all! Each gift box comes beautifully packaged (ready to be given) so you don’t even have to wrap it all. It even comes with a cute tag. And you can use this as a way to ask Will You Be My Bridesmaid when asking them, if you like! Find out what’s in the box…

Why This Flower Girl Gift is Absolutely Perfect

As the bride, you’ll want to get your flower girl a thank you gift for being in your wedding. But the number one question most brides ask is, what should I get her? Since a flower girl is usually between four to eight years of age, you’ll want to consider something in her size: a pretty necklace (or earrings like these), a cute purse she can carry, a pair of shoes to wear at the wedding (and beyond), or a doll or toy you know she’s been wanting (have you ever seen a cuter teddy bear than this?!). These suggestions are always popular choices, but we’re adding a new one to the list! Find out why this flower girl handkerchief from Canyon Embroidery is becoming a huge gift-giving trend among brides…

Happy Monday! It’s one of the best weeks of the entire year → Christmas week! Only a few more days until Santa comes and I can’t wait! To kick things off this week, we’re sharing one of the cutest engagement gift ideas ever. If you (or someone you know) recently got engaged, this is one of the best gifts we’ve seen yet. This ring dish is custom designed to tell the story of where it all began, whether a coffee shop, college, a New Years Eve party, or, you know, a winter dance back in high school.

These Photo Frames Make Great Gifts for Weddings (+ Giveaway!)

Happy Friday! Emma here. One of my favorite gift ideas for 2016 weddings has to be one of these photo frames. I know, photo frames have been a gift idea for decades, but these are different — each frame is unlike any you’ve seen before. The lovely Laura of Montana Snow has designed these beautiful rustic photo frames as lasting keepsakes for years to come. Instead of fussing over a glass holder (and those annoying picture holder metals on the back that always chip your nails), these frames hold pictures in place with a sturdy clip. You can swap out photos in an instant right from the front or hold a small stack to keep on rotation at your desk. Plus, these frames are customized for your recipient, whether it be yourself (try a newly engaged frame or just married photo frame like these), your mom or dad (try these), or your grandma or grandpa (they’ll love these). There’s a little something here for everyone! Take a look at our favorites below and — you guessed it! — enter for a chance to win one as a gift for your parents! Good luck!

Here’s my favorite photo frame for newly engaged couples! Add a photo of the proposal, your engagement ring, or the two of you right after you said “Yes!”:
