Personalized stuff is always a can't-miss wedding gift. I LOVE these monogrammed dish towels from West Elm. In fact, I'm thinking about ordering some for our kitchen!
Land's End has great beach towels and blankets that can be personalized. I love how long they are– tall legs don't hang off the bottom! Perfect gifts for friends who live near water or like to travel.
Pottery Barn always has nice, traditional gift ideas that suit wide varieties of people. We got these mason jar glasses as a wedding gift and use them all the time. People always ask where we got them!
I love this vintage-looking red picnic cooler from Crate & Barrel. You could fashion a really charming gift with that, filling it with other picnic goodies.
Target is a great place to buy standards, like bakeware sets and grilling tools. That scalloped dinnerware set is very cute, don't you think?
You can always count on Kohls for colorful kitchen goods, including KitchenAid and Fiesta brands. They have some super cute beach towels on sale right now, including this chevron version below. Two beach towels, a beach bag and some sunscreen is a great gift for a couple heading out on a tropical honeymoon!
Every year I get together with some of my former college teammates for a shopping excursion in San Marcos, Texas, home of a fantastic outlet mall. I'm headed down there this weekend– I can't wait! I'm crossing my fingers that I can find some affordable treasures at the Pottery Barn, Crate & Barrel and Restoration Hardware outlets... The fun part is that my teammates recently bought their first homes, so it will be fun to help them buy great stuff for their houses- on the cheap, of course.
What do you have planned this weekend? Will you be joining us on the wedding circuit this summer?
* Happy Friday! *
