It's that time of year again: wedding season! For those of you planning to tie the knot this summer your to-do list must be a mile long as there are so many decisions to be made and things to buy. One of the most important purchases you will make is buying a thoughtful gift for each member of your wedding party to show them how important their friendship means to you and how special it is that they are standing by your side on your wedding day. Fortunately for you, we carry a bunch of fun (and practical) options here at the store. Over the week Samantha and I will take turns sharing our favorite gift ideas on the blog so stay tuned and, as always, feel free to shoot us an email with questions regarding ordering, customizing and pricing: email@example.com.
One of the first companies we contacted when we decided to open the store was Sea Bags in Portland, Maine. They are a women-owned company (woot! woot!) that uses recycled sails to create custom tote bags. The sails come from all over the world so each bag is a bit different and they keep dreaming up new designs so the bags just keep getting better and better. Sea Bags make the ultimate gift for bridesmaids as they are useful, adorable and dare I say trendy? (Even J.Crew is carrying a select line of them now.) The bags start range from $105 (small, standard design) to $195 (see the layered stripes with gold star below) and we can place a special order just for you! Take a peek at some of our favorite designs below and keep in mind we also carry the wristlets, which start at $26 and make a great addition to the bags (loose change, credit cards and cell phones will be stored safely:) or are a wonderful gift on their own.
