Bridal Shower / Wedding

A bridal shower is a time to rejoice and celebrate love! Add to the celebration with the gift of flowers, as a centerpiece, buffet or gift faux floral arrangements are a lasting memory.

For the Monsieur and Madame of the evening, give late night entertaining essentials for their own bar set-up. A decanter and bar accessories are always in good taste, and will be appreciated by the couple that loves to host.

For the couple that cooks together, spoil them with a European gourmet copper pot that is as luxurious as it is useful!

Tea for two! Give the gift of afternoon tea to a bride and groom. Whether entertaining, reading or snuggling fine china makes any occasion more special.

A serving board, a carving board, or set of beautiful silverware is a timeless gift for any couple! Give a gift that will inspire them to entertain family and friends. This new journey is a time to make memories!

Baby Shower

For a new family, a laundry basket will be used often. Fill this elephant wicker laundry basket with onesies, binkies, toys, and more, for a gift that has everything a first time parent would need! For an extra touch, try making a diaper cake to put inside. It will definitely spark a few laughs and lots of smiles!

An organized household can be hard to maintain with a baby or toddler in the mix. Give the gift of easy storage that is functional and cute for a young one’s playroom or bedroom. You could even fill the baskets with books, plush animals, toys, and more.

Father’s Day

For the outdoor dads, give the gift of fun in the sun. A croquet set is the perfect gift for family fun, a day with the guys, and many memories to come.

For the hard-working but always stylish dad, find something that will inspire his office.  A multi-purpose charging lamp, desktop organization and maybe a photo of his favorite child (!) is sure to make his study a bit happier.


For the new graduate give fashionable and functional items for the dorm! Go finding for desk accessories, storage, and more that will used all semester long.

For the makeup guru, give pretty in pink organization that will keep her space clear and creativity flowing!

For a younger student, they’ll love picking out a colorful memento to present to their teacher.
