Welcome to Spring and for some of us, what seems like an endless string of weddings that have plenty of parties attached to them – engagement, shower, his & hers, stock the bar, bachelorette, and a lot of other creative type of gatherings to celebrate the upcoming nuptials of good friends. What to get them….always a hard one. Getting a registered gift, of course, is always the easiest and thoughtful. But, when you want to go a little deeper and make an impact, we have some goodies for you at Lolli’s. Sure, the China is nice – but it’s only used for major holidays and events and then eventually passed on to the children. Furthermore, those gifts are usually opened in the quiet of their home before or after the wedding. When you want to bring about big smiles at the parties that lead up to the day, we’ve got you covered. Gifts with meaning. One that might be a part of everyday life and remind the couple of the happy and fun time leading up to the big day – that we all know goes by way too fast.
Nora Fleming Platters and Minis. Quite possibly one of the most innovative things to come along to the china, flatware and giftware party. Each time you entertain; celebrate! Plain white platter or plate can be transformed into the flavor of the night immediately by putting in one of the many minis – from holiday icons to high heeled shoes for women or a grill, a football, even a NASCAR flag for men…the list is endless and makes the perfect gift that the happy couple will use continually.
Catstudio at Lolli’s! Glasses, (that house the PERFECT Tom Collins and Mint Julep) Towels and Pillows. Where did the couple meet? We have the item with the City and all the important stomping grounds on it. Their first vacation? Are they from different cities? Any city, or vacation destination, national park, college town, beach town, island getaway and more is painted safely on the glasses or sewn by hand into the pillows and towels, each takes weeks to sew. Give the gift of memories to the bride and groom to be!
Faceplant Pillows will remind the newlyweds of the famous quote to “Kiss me every night” and ensure marital bliss by inspiring them with these “Sweet Dream” pillowcases. Some for men, some for women. Remind them to “Live, Laugh, Love” and more. This is a gift that will be used for many years to come..
How about a fun gift, something to stock the newlyweds’ bar? Refresh Glasses – made from used wine bottles and carefully sculpted into the coolest set of glasses you will find. Feel good about this gift, too, as 70% of wine bottles usually go straight to landfills. This company saves thousands of bottles a week with the goal of “rescuing” 1 million per year. The bottles have their own story, where they were filled, what was in them and an occasion for their use. Their shape, color and thickness make fantastic vessels, in fun colors, for a favorite drink.
Add some “soul to the home” by giving the gift of a Sugarboo Frame! Vintage, reclaimed wood, hand crafted with wonderful messages painted on them. Give the couple a piece of happiness to look at each day hanging on their wall. Find a quote that reminds you of them – that will inspire them to remember the days before the wedding.
The bottom line – make it fun. Everyone wants to give the best wedding gift possible. Bypass the registry and give them something they had NO IDEA they needed and wanted. Something to use during the fun times – once they are past the whirlwind of parties leading up to the wedding, and then past the day itself. Coming home from a honeymoon is always a bit sad – wouldn’t it be fun to shake up a cocktail and throw it in a Catstudio glass and remember all that just went on? I think so. Surely they won’t be setting out a China Place Setting until the first holiday.
