Sweet Gift Baskets for Bridesmaids!

comments 0

Having been a bridesmaid many times in my life, I know firsthand that there is a lot of work and stress going on behind the scenes. Naturally, things are much more hectic for the couple tying the knot, but groomsmen and bridesmaids have their fair share of things to do and keep in mind, too! Add to that their excitement that two of their favorite people are about to be married, and you have the perfect recipe for what I refer to as a ‘snack scenario.’

What exactly is a snack scenario? Simply put, it’s the perfect storm of a situation in which the likely result is greater-than-average snack consumption. It could be a television marathon of your favorite show; it could be that the kiddos haven’t stopped saying your name since they woke up. It could be spending a week on vacation with a best friend; it could be a lot of things!

We all know that we aren’t supposed to eat cookies when we’re stressed or make food the center of every celebration, but knowing it doesn’t necessarily stop us. When things in life get a little too hectic for words, sometimes the only ‘person’ who knows the right thing to say is a candy bar! And sometimes when everything is going right and you’re as happy as can be, you can’t help but treat yourself to an ice cream sundae or large slice of cake.

Stress and celebration are tied to food for many of us, and as long as you don’t overindulge too much everything is usually OK. However, when there’s a formal occasion on the horizon for which you must fit into a gown tailored just for you, there simply isn’t room to go overboard on Oreos! And that is precisely why our bridesmaid gift baskets brimming with delicious delights are such a thoughtful, fun selection. Chances are good that every one of your bridesmaids has had to just say ‘no’ to more than one cupcake in recent weeks and months to be 100% sure her dress fit perfectly on your special day. And while you’ll be waking up the morning after your wedding with your honeymoon on your mind, your bridesmaids will be digging into their flower-shaped cookie bouquet for breakfast! :)

Romantic Gift Basket Ideas for Many Occasions!

When most of us think of romantic gifts, the first things that come to mind include flowers, chocolates, jewelry and weekend getaways. These are all wonderful ideas on their own, but can really make an impact when they are tied together. By their very nature, gift baskets are a tied-together gift, packed with indulgent treats, sweets, eats and more! And whether you’ll be giving them on their own, or incorporating one of the gifts mentioned above, we have some ideas to make the occasion even more memorable and special. Let’s take a look at a few popular choices for events that center around romance…

Valentine’s Day Gift Baskets – Ahh, the holiday of love! Cupid is working overtime on arrow duty, and couples everywhere are enjoying some much-needed quality time together to focus on one another and how important their relationship is in their lives. Just as no two relationships are identical, neither are the Valentine’s Day gift baskets that would be perfect for your lovely lady or gentleman. Our selection includes awesome options for all tastes, whether your cutie loves cookies, candy, champagne or roses!

Bridesmaid Gift Baskets – While your friendship with your bridesmaids isn’t romantic unto itself, it’s likely these special ladies in your life are more familiar with your relationship than anyone else! The bond we share with our closest girlfriends in unlike any other in our lives. Many if not all of your bridesmaids have been with you through thick and thin – an eager ear on the other end of the phone to hear about every aspect of your relationship from the first date to the ring! Honor that priceless friendship with a beautiful bridesmaid gift basket you know she’ll love. Chances are different baskets will appeal to different friends, so it’s a good thing we have such a spectacular selection!

Grand Champagne Gift Basket – Perfect for popping the question! Whether you’re planning to propose at home, or while away together on vacation, our Grand Champagne Gift Basket helps you set the mood while providing all the necessary celebration essentials. If you will be surprising that special someone with a trip, consider gifting this beforehand and tucking the travel tickets or accommodations information inside for them to unveil. You can then suggest you bring the basket along to enjoy while you’re away, and either tuck the ring inside for them to find, or simply keep it close by when you do propose so champagne is at the ready!

5 Ways To De-stress Before The Wedding

comments 0

Weddings are a wonderful time, full of happiness for both the couple-to-be and their supportive bridal party. Yet, planning a wedding certainly isn’t easy, especially if you’re working to be as budget-conscious as possible. The last few weeks before the wedding are bound to have their tense moments, but with the right de-stressing techniques, you and your bridal party can relax and enjoy the experience! We’ve chatted with more than a few brides and bridesmaids as they discussed our Bridesmaid Gift Baskets with us, and we heard de-stressing tips ranging from spa days to simply writing a checklist!

Tip #1: Jot it all down.

Can writing a simple checklist of all that’s left on your plate really help reduce stress? Yes! Rather than worrying yourself trying to remember all those remaining “to-do’s”, jot them down! Sure, you’ll still need to accomplish them, but you’ve got them down on paper and off your mind.

Tip #2: Don’t sweat it – sweat together, instead!

Don’t sweat the stress – by sweating together! Get your bridesmaids together and go for a run, attend a yoga class, or other group athletic activities. Exercise does wonders on your ability to relax and combat stress, and will also inject happiness boosters into your and your bridal party.

Tip #3: Gift happiness.

We’ve often said how gifting others can not only increase their happiness levels, but can increase yours, as well. We know you’re strapped on time, so take a few minutes to select some of our Bridesmaid Gift Baskets and order them directly to your door – or surprise your bridesmaids by having it arrive at their door! They’ll appreciate the gesture, and you’ll feel happier knowing that you’re showing how thankful you are for their support. Two of our bride-to-be favorites for bridesmaids are our Cosmopolitan Gift Basket filled with “Cosmorita” mix and scrumptious cookies, and our Godiva Coffee Lover Gift Baskets, filled with Godiva coffee, cookies, and delicious cookies.

Tip #4: Plan a spa day.

Get your bridal party together (hey, even guys like massages!) and book a spa day at a local spa. Many spas will offer a range of different services for your bridal party to choose, along with serving beverages and a light lunch. Check into any available group discounts.

Tip #5: Get away for the weekend.

In times of stress, it helps to get a little perspective on our lives, and one of the best ways to do that is to remove ourselves from the hustle and bustle of ordinary life. Plan a small weekend getaway with your husband-to-be or with a few bridesmaids. If you can’t afford a weekend getaway right now, plan a weekend “staycation” at home – clear your weekend “to-do” list from Friday night to Sunday night, and fill your weekend with only activities that will relax you.

Brides and Bridesmaids – Show Each Other Love With Bridesmaid Gift Baskets!

comments 0

Wedding planning stirs up a mix of emotions – there’s times of stress during wedding planning (oh no, the place cards are incorrect?!) and also times of great joy. But even more prevalent is the firm undercurrent of love and appreciation between not only the couple-to-be, but between the bride and her bridesmaids. Brides typically choose bridesmaids based on the friends they feel closest with, and her bridesmaids do their best to support the bride in her wedding decisions and even help lighten some of the load of wedding planning. It’s important for both brides and bridesmaids to “give back” to each other in appreciation and friendship, and we have some great ideas for you!

Bridesmaid Gift Baskets

Brides, gift your bridesmaids:

  • We know you’re already busy and have barely a free minute to shop for a gift! We’ve worked with many a bride in choosing gifts from our Bridesmaid Gift Baskets collection, and have only heard “oohs and ahhs” in return! They’re filled with all those girly-delights that bridesmaids will just adore, and packaged beautifully to put an instant smile on their faces!
  • Remember having sleepovers with the girls when you were a kid? Do it again! Grab some pizza, a unique martini creation if you’re all over 21, a few rom-coms, and have a fun and relaxing girl’s night in.
  • Gift them spa gift certificates – to be used after the wedding! It can be hard to really stop and enjoy yourself before the wedding, so gifting a spa gift certificate to be used after the wedding is a neat way to say thank you and help the girls relax.

Bridesmaids, gift your bride:

  • Make it a group gift. With the other bridesmaids, choose a specific room in the bride’s home, such as her bathroom. Choose various items for that room that each of you will buy, and together gift her all she needs for that room!
  • Our Bridesmaids Gift Baskets section may imply these gifts are for bridesmaids, but bridesmaids can also get together and purchase one or a few bridesmaid gift baskets for the bride, too! Our Bridesmaids Spa Gift is perfect for the honeymoon, as is our Go For The Gold Gift Tower for the bride and groom to munch on after the wedding reception.
  • Are they honeymooning at a resort or specific vacation spot? Call the hotel concierge and see if you and the bridesmaids can surprise the newlyweds with a couples massage, scuba dive, or swanky night out!

It’s so important to take a few minutes for brides and bridesmaids to show appreciation for each other and say thank you for always being there. Bridesmaid Gift Baskets are a very pretty (and quick!) gift, and you can always pair it with a smaller, more personal gift. Happy wedding planning!
