When it comes to wedding gifts, I really love thinking about the interests of the couple. Some are big into travel, some are total foodies, and some LOVE good wine. This year Chad and I have been invited to a few weddings where there are non-traditional registries since their homes are already set up, but rather than sending cash, I’m thinking a Wine for a Wedding box might be the perfect gift. Its got a sleek modern design that’s customizable with text for the 3 wine slots which you can fill with your own wines or purchase directly through the site. These artist designed boxes are also a great heirloom piece and a gift that will continue to be useful over the years…whether you choose a 1st anniversary, 3rd anniversary, 5th anniversary setup, or something a little longer (even customized) for the couple, I think the couples excitement will build to be able to crack open a celebratory bottle and enjoy reliving their wedding! The slot covers can also be engraved on the back of each with a personal message from you, whether its a funny memory from the wedding or a few words of wisdom.
Today I’m happy to offer a lucky reader the chance to win one of these gorgeous anniversary boxes from Wine for a Wedding for themselves or as a gift! Head over to Wine for a Wedding and comment below with your favorite design for a chance to win. You’ll even be able to have the back customized with personal messages! (Sorry, no wine included) We’ll announce the winner on Friday. CONTEST IS NOW OVER

If you’re familiar at all with the site Food52, then you may already know about their store called Provisions. If not, absolutely check it out for beautiful wares for the kitchen, dining room, and overall home. They recently launched their Summer wedding collection which is just chock full of things I wish I had room for in my kitchen. Although they don’t have a formal wedding registry set up, a lot of the items are great as gifts, especially their Anniversary wine box set that holds bottles to be enjoyed on your first, third and fifth wedding anniversaries. Another favorite are the Perceval steak knives, especially in the pistachio color because I’m obsessed with green and they’re such a lovely shade. Check out the rest of their site for even more ideas!

I’m a sucker for cute little gifts for people, so when I saw these keytags from the team at Project No. 8, I thought they’d be perfect to give out! There are tons of options, from serious to quirky to OMG!, and they can all be done in a bunch of colors. You can even customize the sayings! Kinda fun for your bridal party…especially if you pick words that REALLY fit the person.
