Just got another personalized gift set from an awesome company providing gifts for Groomsmen and more! Groomsday.com sent me a lovely wooden boxed engraved with my husband’s name and in it was a personalized pair of cuff links, a tie tack and a money clip. Mike lost his tie clip last Summer while DJing a wedding so this is an awesome gift set for him! On top of it they included a pair of argyle socks with a personalized wrapper which just sort of finished off the gift… I chose to put my husband’s name and “Dad of The Year” on it since Father’s Day is just around the corner, but these would be great to buy each of your groomsmen and personalize with their names, role in your wedding and the date! The only way to ensure the guys all have matching socks for the cool “shoe shot” is for the bride and groom to provide them! Check out my photos below! This site had really quality products so I highly recommend them! Here’s a link to the sock collections: https://groomsday.com/collections/groomsmen-socks  and here’s a link to the gift set: https://groomsday.com/collections/best-sellers/products/groomsmen-gift-set

And after you purchase your groomsmen gifts then you might want to hop over to their sister site www.bridebop.com to check out some amazing gifts for the bridesmaids or other special ladies in your life! I know these two sites are geared towards gifts for your bridal party members, but there are a lot of awesome personalized gifts for everyone you know. Gifts for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Birthdays, Weddings, and more! Check out both sites! I wasn’t paid for this endorsement, but I did get to keep these products, but who wouldn’t want such terrific items!

I received another amazing personalized gift from Bridesmaids’ Gifts Boutique  this time it’s a monogrammed makeup bag with my initials. The bag is nicely made, comes in a variety of different colors and has a lovely tassel on the zipper. Super cute! This would be an adorable gift for each one of your bridesmaids or for the bride herself as a bridal shower gift! As always the delivery was super fast so if you are procrastinating on the gifts check out this site! And their associate site Groovy Groomsmen Gifts

For the bridesmaids: Put in a lip gloss, a nice lotion set, maybe a pair of flip-flops for when the dancing starts, some tissues, mints and maybe a cold brew coffee or other caffeinated drink as it’s going to be a long day!

For the bride: Fill it with bridal emergency kit items and you have the perfect accessory for her big day!  Need some ideas on what to include for an emergency kit here’s my go to list: 1.) A Tide Pen – for any spills or stains 2.) A small sewing kit – for wardrobe malfunctions 3.) Super glue – I’ve seen this save many a heals on shoes and even boutinears!  4.) Scissors – Everyone always forgets to remove tags 5.) Gum and/or Breathe Mints – Fresh breathe speaks for itself 6.) Pantyhose – In case you get a run in one and they can be used for other things 7.) Lip gloss! 8.) A small first aide kit with band-aids, etc. 9.) Clear nail polish – Also stops pantyhose runs 10.) Tissues – For inevitable crying! 11.) Aspirin or Ibuprofen – For pain relief 12.) A nail file 13.) Sunscreen – Especially if the event is outdoors! 14.) Bobby Pins 15.) Fabric Tape –  This has also saved someone from embarrassing clothing mishaps 16) Lint Roller – Keep fuzzies off that dress! 17.) Deodorant – Bride’s forget this all the time! 18.) Pens – To sign the license! 19.) Antacids – In case dinner doesn’t agree with you. 20.) Water & Snacks – the day goes so fast she often forgets to eat!

I’m going to enjoy this bag for years to come! Make sure you check out their site: https://www.bridesmaidgiftsboutique.com/and their site for groomsman’s gifts: http://www.groovygroomsmengifts.com

Just got my personalized wine tumbler from Bride Bop –  https://bridebop.com This wine tumbler is a vacuum insulated stemless wine glass that’s perfect for keeping your drinks chilled up to 12 hours! It’s dishwasher safe and also great for hot drinks too! Bride Bop contacted me to see if I wanted to try out one of their products and review it. I chose this wine tumbler because not only do I love wine, but I thought it would be the perfect cup to hold other beverages in (as well as wine) while I’m in our pool this Summer. I love that it’s personalized so that there’s no mistaking that it’s my cup! These would make perfect bridesmaid gifts for all the lovely ladies in your wedding party! I highly recommend this item and Bride Bop’s website has a lot of great gifts for everyone in your wedding party.  Also check out their partner site: https://groomsday.com/ if you are also looking for some awesome gifts for all of the men in your wedding party!

As always, I wasn’t paid for this endorsement, but I was allowed to keep this fabulous tumbler! I love being able to give couples other ideas for their weddings whether it be venues, other services and more so feel free to contact me if you think my audience would be interested in your products and/or services as I would love to help you spread the word!

I was asked to review some wedding related products again. This time it’s gifts for your guests! After attending countless weddings as a photographer and a videographer I’ve become a strong believer that if you are going to do wedding favors than do something that the guests are not going to leave behind! I’m pleased to say that all of the seven items that were sent to me to review are something that I would actually like as a wedding favor and will be an item that will get continued use in my household long after this review.  Forever wedding favors had a quick delivery time, the products were affordable, but also really nice. Here is the website if you’d like to check out what else they have to offer: https://foreverweddingfavors.com/

And here are the photos I took of the products and my thoughts on each one of them.

1.) Typewriter Key Magnets – The first item I checked out were these adorable “Typewriter Key Magnets” I loved the packaging that they came in and of course that they spelled out the word “LOVE”. These will definitely have a  spot on my refrigerator.  I can totally see a couple that has a “Vintage or Boho Wedding Theme” ordering these for their guests. Adorable!

2.) Tie the Knot Wine Stopper – Next up was the Tie the Knot wine stopper…. Great item for the wine enthusiast. I liked the packaging that it came in and what doesn’t go together better than love and wine? Again, I love wine so this is something that I would use in my home on a regular basis because it’s always difficult to get the cork back in the bottle and they are making so many wines now without corks. A cute, but practical gift!

3.) Hugging Bear Shakers – These adorable bears were my favorite item that was sent to me.  They were super cute, but also super small so I’m not sure if they are more of a collector’s item than an actual usable household item.  Because they are so cute I’m willing to try them out, especially since I think we have the old cardboard salt and pepper shakers in my house!

4.) Wine Bottle Corkscrew – Keeping with a wine theme this corkscrew is also great for wine lovers and who doesn’t need an extra wine corkscrew in their homes?! If you were having a “Wine Themed” event these would be the perfect gift for all of your guests.

5.) Mini Bubble Gum Machine – Now this one was my youngest son’s favorite item… I wonder why?! It’s a little on the kitschy side for a formal event, but would make a great favor for a kid’s table, or a more laid back, fun themed wedding or even as a favor for guests at a birthday party! I tasted the gum and it wasn’t the best gum I’ve ever had, but the item worked and was again very adorable. My 3 year old gave it two thumbs up! I’ll probably have to refill it soon!

6.) Brass Compass – A very nice inexpensive compass that my oldest son really enjoyed. He ran around the house and played with it all day pretending to be an explorer. It would be a nice thing to have hiking as well. Perfect gift for a “Travel or Adventure Themed Wedding” I’ve seen a lot of weddings in Colorado where this wedding favor would’ve been a perfect fit. Colorado seems to attract the adventurous and thus couple’s who enjoy the great outdoors. Hopefully, I will see some of these at a wedding soon!

7.) Four Heart Wedding Frames – The last item I’m reviewing is a package of four heart wedding frames. These are small and fit a wallet sized 2″x3″ photo.  I decided to stick some of my own wedding photos in them to see how they would look… I think these would be great with engagement photos of the couple put in them for each guest to take home. Another idea would be to use them for your table numbers or they are small enough that you could also use them for names as place settings and then each person would still have a frame to take home and put their own photograph in.

This company that I reviewed these items for is affiliated with two other companies that I’ve done reviews for on my blog. I’ve also really liked the products that I’ve received from all three of them. They haven’t paid me to review them, but I did get to keep the products. I like being able to give a couple looking for other ideas for their wedding something besides just my photography and video to look at, so I hope you enjoy these reviews!

The same company that runs Groovy Guy Gifts contacted me to do another review of a product from their sister site, Bridesmaid Gifts Boutique. I was so impressed with the gift that I received for my husband that I decided I would love a wallet of my own and agreed to write another review for them.  I’m equally impressed with the quality of the item as I was with the first wallet I received. It came with a beautiful monogram of my initials on the front and was presented in a sheer gift bag.

The inside of the wallet has more than enough room for all of my credit cards, money and more. I like that it also zips and buttons up preventing me from losing any of the items that I would place in it, which was definitely a problem that I had with my old wallet that didn’t always close correctly. There’s also a handy wrist strap which is nice for carrying the clutch when you don’t feel like lugging your entire purse along.

Bridesmaid Gifts Boutique also carries a bunch of other wonderful personalized gifts that are perfect for all of the gals in your bridal party! Including some of those fabulous robes that all of you ladies are looking for lately! Check out their site! https://www.bridesmaidgiftsboutique.com I know you won’t be disappointed by the quality, the price and even the fast delivery service that this company has to offer! Happy shopping!

For the first time ever I was contacted by a company that wanted me to review one of the products that they offer through their website https://www.groovyguygifts.com/on my blog, so I said sure, why not, and they gave me a list of items that I could choose from.  I decided on a personalized wallet for my husband since he already has a lot of the typical alcohol related items that are on their site. The gift arrived a short time after that addressed to me and in fact it came in quicker than I got around to making this blog post! So very quick delivery times!

The first thing I noticed right away is the craftsmanship of the wallet that I received. It came in a very nice wooden box engraved with my husband’s first name which will be a nice place for him to put his wallet at the end of the day since he’s always misplacing his wallet. The wallet itself is made of a very nice high quality soft black leather with plenty of room for all his cards and other items that he carries on his person. They also imprinted his first and last name on the front of the wallet which will be great if he ever looses it again and it’s also a nice touch!

Checking out the rest of their site they also have a lot of really great items for groomsmen gifts that are not only affordable, but the ability to personalize each item is also an added bonus! There are also some really great items for wedding favors such as wine keys and beer bottle openers and things that would also work well for holiday and birthday gifts for your man too! So if you are looking for personalized gifts for all the guys in your wedding party or even if it’s just something special for the man in your life I really do recommend them! I received a great item that my husband is looking forward to using! Check them out https://www.groovyguygifts.com/
