With so much attention on the bride it’s easy to forget about the groom, who is also a very important part of the wedding. On your wedding day it is important to give your groom a small token of your appreciation to show how special he is to you. Our Wedding Shop has plenty of gifts for your groom to feel special on your wedding day as well.
These eco-friendly bamboo ballpoint pens are great gifts for your hubby to be to help with writing thank you cards to your guests. You can give these to your groomsmen as a token of your appreciation for sharing in your special day.
Each pen bears the phrase “Be green, just…

The Gift 2. MeMake
How adorable are these little pillows? These lovely miniatures have the word “home”…
Over the last couple years I’ve been learning how to quilt. I have always loved them, but after I learned about all that went into making them, I appreciated the workmanship of beautifully done quilts. Everything from the way the fabric colors and patterns are matched to the detailed stitching shows in an excellent quilt. Quilts aren’t just beautiful blankets, but tangible bits of our own histories.
You can imagine then, how excited I was when I found Lori’s site. One of the things Lori specializes in is making uniquely customized quilts, using fabrics her clients bring in. She also has a line of her own fabrics that couples can select from.
Check out these products from the Green Bride Guide Registry. These are the top holiday editor’s picks for 2011!
For the cheese enthusiast: fromage cheese board
This cheese board is made from 100% recycled stainless steel and comes with two extra replacement cutting wires.
For the Cook with heart: love spoon
This spoon is nice on the eyes and handmade in West Virginia from readily available and ethically harvested redwoods. All scraps, chips and hardwood are recycled on site at the farm where they are made.
Keep it Cool: beach stone wine serving set
This is one of our best sellers! Keep your drinks cold and your party guests talking about the trendy addition…
If the bride-to-be is addicted to the Food Network and has a pile of Gourmet magazines sitting by the door, a kitchen-themed bridal shower might be right up her alley.
Some ideas to get you going:
Use a cooking themed invitation or modify recipe cards with the time, address, and instructions. See below for gift theme suggestions you can include with the invitations.
How about giving your guests a theme for their gifts? Ask groups of guests to bring either a favorite kitchen gadget, cookbook or gourmet ingredients. Or have every guest bring their favorite recipe and create a collection of them for the bride. Just make sure that if you are asking for themed gifts, you make it…
When I saw these customized bow tie flasks from The Hair of the Dog I thought they’d make a fantastically fun gift for the groomsmen! All flasks are stainless steel and can be personalized with names, dates, initials, etc. You can even select a different background color to coordinate with your wedding colors.
And, if you don’t want to leave the bridesmaids out, not to worry, there are custom flasks for the bridal party, too. Even the bride and groom, if that’s how they want to roll!
There are a slew of styles and colors so finding the perfect fit to commemorate the day shouldn’t be too difficult. Keeping the groomsmen from needing a little “hair of the dog” the day of the wedding? That may require a little more effort.
There is no limit to unique eco-conscious gifts for your favorite green bride! Many businesses cater to those that covet sustainable products and they do their absolute best to ensure that you are receiving quality products from fair trade organizations.
Instead of buying products made of plastic or other harmful materials you can opt for bamboo kitchenware or recycled metal cheese slicers, graters, utensils!
Buying recycled products is a very responsible gesture and also showcases artistry by individuals who take old materials and turn them into something beautiful and functional!
Recycled luxury items such as wine racks are also a great home decor addition. When you entertain guests they will be impressed by the unique repurposed items you own!…
You all know what a huge fan I am of personal, customized gifts, especially for big life events (um, your wedding day perhaps?) as a way to commemorate the day in a meaningful way. There’s something about opening up a gift that has thought, care and time invested into it…
Which is probably why I think Vintage Pearl’s customized necklaces are so lovely. They’re a subtle way to wear your heart on your sleeve (or your chest, in this case), plus they’re really pretty, aren’t they? And I love that each piece is individually handstamped so no two necklaces are exactly the same, just like your love (sometimes I just can’t help it…).
A Flower and a Circle is…
Now I’m basing this solely on the fact that every year I watch my husband, dad, and brother-in-law scurry out to start buying presents on December 23, but I’m thinking there’s a chance there are a few guys out there who still need to finish up their shopping. If your fiancé or husband counts among them, feel free to surreptitiously send him a link to this page; we did our best to cover all of your bases!
For the Adorned Lady
If she likes a little bit of bling, these sequin heart shoe clips from ban.do will help her rock in the New Year (or just rock her trips to the grocery store). Or if…
