5 Bridesmaid Gift Ideas They'll Love

Posted by Victoria Dolloff on


Here are five bridesmaid's gift ideas that are the perfect 'thank you' for your wedding party. Whether you are looking for something fun, something practical, or simply something you're sure they'll use again, we have you covered!


1. Carry-All Tote

A popular gift for bridesmaids are carry-all totes. They make the perfect present and are super useful on the day of the wedding. Stuff some sweet treats inside like chocolate, wine, lip gloss, flip flops (aka dancing shoes!), and a thank you note. Personalize the bags with a monogram of their name for a tote they can always treasure! 



2. Makeup Bags

Makeup bags are the perfect gift for your bridesmaids on your wedding day. Help them stay organized while they get ready! Great to pair with perfume, makeup, nail polish or any other cute accessories. Personalize them with your bridesmaids' monograms for an extra special gift!



3. Duffel

Whether it's traveling in for your bridal shower, flying off to your bachelorette, or checking in for the big day-- Bridesmaids are on-the-go for their brides! What better gift to thank them with than a stylish, functional duffel. With all of our great patterns and two sizes, a Quilted Koala duffel makes the perfect bridesmaid gift!




4. Jewelry + Jewelry Roll

Another popular gift for bridesmaids is personalized jewelry that they can wear on the wedding day. Pairing it with a jewelry roll is the perfect combination. Both gifts they can use on the day-of and enjoy after as well.



5. Heels in a custom box

With the bridesmaids dresses all picked out, now your girls need the perfect shoes for their wedding day outfit. A thoughtful gift is to treat your bridesmaids to some fabulous heels that will keep your wedding party coordinated and also make your bridesmaids happy! Who doesn't love shoes?!  Popping them in a gorgeous fabric box will make the gift all the more special. With a windowpane, you can personalize each box with your bridesmaid's names and they can treasure the boxes as a keepsake after.

Is Blissful Too Much to Ask For?

Posted by Stephanie Oppenheim on

Coming up with great names for new collections is hard. When we were thinking about names for our latest collection we wanted to convey something special. The fabric designs (inspired by wood block printing) were worked on intensely by our team - it was anything but calm or serene. But when that moment arrived when we all knew we had exactly the look and feel of what we were after, it was...blissful.

Yet I wonder - does blissful feel out of reach most of the time? And when you have a blissful moment, is it hard to hold onto? Maybe that's the way it should be. After all, if you're always blissful, how would you know it?  To me, it feels like whipped cream. I love it, but it's not something I indulge in everyday.

So, what makes you blissful? Enjoying a sunset, ice cream with hot fudge, binge watching a favorite show in your pjs?  We're going to be exploring this idea across our social media platforms this month. We invite you to share your ideas on Instagram using the tag #blissful and pin to our group pinterest boardby following 'What Makes You Blissful?' for your invitation to pin.

While working on this last photo shoot at the beach - I had that moment. Feet in the sand, a beautiful sky, proud of what we had produced as a team, enjoying the people I'm working with-- and hey, I'm on a beach. 

The grasses in the dunes are so beautiful - they change with the light.
