#1) Personalized Bridal Party Wedding Dress Hangers
Why these make a great gift: These hangers from Everything Done To a T have a variety of uses. They’re not only a great keepsake for your bridal party, they create a beautiful photo-op while everyone is getting ready. Rather than confusion and ugly plastic bags everywhere, all the dresses can be hung with style! And it’s nice to have a touch of individuality in a sea of same dress, same shoes, same hair, etc.
More about this vendor: I’m Tara, a born and raised Jersey Girl, married to my college sweetheart and mom to 2 boys (ages 5 & 3). When I got married in 2009 I did a LOT of DIY projects for my wedding. That snowballed into helping friends and family, to forming a business, and then opening my Etsy shop. My products are all handmade (by me!) to add a little something extra to your event. Whether it’s personalized bridal party hangers, save the date wedding signs, or monogram wine glasses; my items sprinkle a little magic on top of an already special day.
Included in our giveaway: Up to five (5) personalized wooden hangers, in dark or light wood, with script font in your choice of color. Retail Value: $37.50
#2) Jersey Knit Floral Pattern Robe
Why these make a great gift: The fabrics used by Oh Sugar Bride are so SOFT, washable and fuss free. No worrying about wrinkles, no asking ‘can I dry this?’ and now finally having a robe that you look forward to wearing. We are all Queens in our home, these robes will definitely make you feel like one. How would anyone not love a special, thoughtful gift like this?!
More about this vendor: I’m Steph, a wife, mom to 2 boys, and small business owner. I love reading fiction, staying caught up on Hulu, and obviously ALL things floral! My business started when I fell in love with sewing children’s clothing. Little floral dresses and rompers were my favorite. One day I posted a picture on IG of a robe I made for my BFF as a postpartum gift. My followers LOVED it and wanted more. Over the last 10 months I’ve been curating the best fabrics and floral prints, so I can offer the BEST custom (not to mention handcrafted) robes, and women’s clothing to everyone!
Included in our giveaway: One (1) jersey knit handmade robe. Pattern is blush floral on an ivory robe. Retail Value: $48.00
#3) Handmade Soy Candle
Why these make a great gift: These candles from Clean Candle Company are made with American grown soy beans, using only phthalate-free fragrance that has been safety-approved. They are 100% vegan and cruelty-free. There are dozens of different scents to choose from, and several different containers, including mason jars or vintage cups. In addition, you can choose standard labels or customized ones with names, monogram, or special messages. Candles are always an easy go-to gift that everyone is guaranteed to love, especially in the customer favorite love spell scent.
More about this vendor: I’m Erin, a resident of North Carolina, and mother to my 7 month old son, Grayson. My mother started making candles in 2010 and I learned from her. Last year, while I was pregnant, I completely rebranded the business to allow me to work flexible hours and bring in an income while taking care of Grayson. My current line of candles works well with farmhouse style decor. Later this year I am coming out with a yoga candle line, as well as candles featuring Bible scripture. I also do wedding favors, bridal shower favors, “will you be my bridesmaid” gifts, and have a men’s line for groomsmen gifts.
Included in our giveaway: One (1) 8 oz Love Spell in a mason jar with a galvanized lid. Retail Value: $15.00
