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

A few weeks ago Brittany did a post on art for your home (see it here if you missed it), so the giveaway this week is very much on topic with that! Permanent Press Editions is a new shop from stylist Shana Faust and Alexa Mulvihill featuring original photography of absolutely gorgeous items from the past. Their first collection is all about ordinary objects, but in the way they are styled and shot, reflect such a history. They say it best on their site…”Each image is a portrait, a memory, a sensation—the smell of salt air, the magic of a glitter-infused comb, the endless possibilities housed in a box of colored pencils.”
All their images are reasonably priced, and can come framed or unframed. Its also great that many of the objects make natural pairings, whether by color or subject, so today, we are giving away a pair of your choice from Permanent Press Editions first collection! You will receive 2 8×10 images of your choice, unframed, a value of $100. Leave a comment below with the pair you would pick, and a winner will be announced on this post on Friday. It's a great gift idea for a new couple or to keep for yourself, so good luck!
UPDATE: Congrats Annie, you're the winner! We'll contact you shortly
