Looking for an awesome groomsmen gift? Consider two key attributes: 1) the gift is functional, and 2) the gift is custom. If the gift is functional, he’ll be sure to actually use it. And, if it’s custom-made, he won’t already own one — and he’s likely to keep it for a long time. Today we’re sharing shirt collar stays, one of our favorite groomsmen gift ideas. What are shirt collar stays, you ask? Read on to find how they’re used, why he’ll love ’em, and find out where you can grab a set for your groom, groomsmen, ring bearer, fathers, and grandfathers…

Giveaway: Win a Custom Address Stamp!

by ink me this

Hi, loves! Emma here. When January rolls around each year, I get organized. New pens. A new planner (thanks, Mom!). A new set of post-it notes and pretty desk accessories to keep it all organized. I read new books (like my latest fave). I also grab some stationery and pull out my address book, hidden under the pile of Christmas cards I’m still putting away with all the other trimmings (you, too? I’m so behind!). January is a great time to get organized whether at home, in your office, or in preparation for planning your wedding. When you’re planning, staying organized is essential because it will be less stressful when you can find everything in one place (you know — a phone number on a vendor’s business card, a swatch of fabric for the bridesmaid dresses, and that awesome cake design you ripped out of your latest copy of MSW). Why not also keep your stationery organized, too?

To help, we’ve teamed up with Ink Me This, designer of one-of-a-kind address stamps, to give one away to a lucky reader! Find out how you could win a custom address stamp to use on your wedding stationery (and save time sending those save the dates, invitations, and more)…
