Amid the tumult of wedding preparations, there is someone who always keeps a cool head: Mom. Whether she's your mom or your future mother-in-law, she's been there since the beginning for you guys, offering her love and support. So, now's the time to gift her with a treasure she'll always cherish. Traditionally given at the rehearsal dinner or the morning of the wedding, gifts for the mother of the bride or mother of the groom should be substantial, but they don't have to be exorbitant. We've rounded up a list of gifts that cost $50 or less that are unique and memorable: Some are sentimental, others are practical and a couple are glamorous; choose which one best reflects your special lady's personality. We shopped at Uncommon Goods, Williams-Sonoma, Nordstrom and more for these thoughtful keepsakes. No doubt, you'll find something she'll love from this creative assortment!
Of the many pre-wedding complications a bride might experience, an acne breakout is among the worst. If you find yourself in such a muddle, reach for the zit-kicking elixirs found in this kit from the No. 1 acne-fighting brand in America, Proactiv. Proactiv Solution's 5-Step Acne Treatment System - the "Stress-Free Skin Wedding Kit," consists of three dermatologist-developed products that work together through the strength of science. This group of formulations includes prescription-strength benzoyl peroxide that kills acne-causing bacteria at its source. And that's just for starters. When used in unison, these products harmonize to leave your skin clear and glowing. Bonus: There are two additional products to prevent blackheads, blemish flare-ups, and keep the glow going long after the honeymoon ends. Get the skinny on each step of this lifesaver kit — trust us, your wedding survival bag is not complete without it!
Every love story is unique: For the bride, an alternative engagement ring becomes her outward symbol of a one-of-a-kind love. Unusual rings are embraced by the bride who requires statement-making jewelry, and her choice of style runs the gamut from quietly minimalistic to exuberantly ornate.
Sure, the white round diamond has long been the classic engagement ring, but many gorgeous options exist beyond that typical style. Some are rendered unique due their setting design, be it modern or vintage-inspired. Others stand out due to their metal, ranging from rose gold to a highly-polished platinum band. A constellation of gemstones is there for one's choosing, including deeply red rubies, ink-toned sapphires, blushing morganites and opalescent pearls. Here, we've selected the most stunning alternative engagement rings from Nordstrom, Macy's, Neiman Marcus and more.
The tea kettle, that humble household necessity, has historically conveyed the notion of comfort. Steeping tea to be served with cookies (or "biscuits", per the English) is a time-honored symbol of hospitality. Then in 1980s America, tea kettles became status objects: Italian architect Aldo Rossi designed a sleek number for Alessi and architect Michael Graves designed his famous kettle topped by a red, chirping bird. It was the whistle heard around the world.
Today, tea kettles are must-haves on any wedding registry. Coveted styles include the retro SMEG design and the super cute kettles from Kate Spade. Even if you don't drink tea, a kettle is a must-have for boiling the water used in a French press for coffee or for hot chocolate. No hostess is prepared without one, particularly while hosting a brunch, a book club or holiday parties. We've rounded up the best tea kettles for your wedding registry from Anthropologie, Neiman Marcus, Williams-Sonoma and more. (And don't forget the Fortnum & Mason Wedding Bouquet Blend, a tea developed to commemorate the marriage of Prince Henry ("Harry") of Wales and Meghan Markle!)
