Welcome to gift-giving season! Sure, devices are essentials for emails, texting and Amazon Prime, but not wedding-gift shopping. When it comes to scoring a wedding gift that will last for anniversaries to come, think outside the electronic box and opt for a more personal, local option. Where to shop? What to buy? You’re guaranteed a perfect find at one of these hot, local boutiques.
New Orientation: fine china for the modern couple
Don’t let the the term scare you. Made from porcelain, fine china is surprisingly durable, dishwasher safe, easy on the eyes, and ready for daily use. For over 30 years, New Orientation has honored engaged couples by displaying their chosen place setting for gift buyers to see for themselves. Can’t buy the whole set? Offer a partial gift card to apply to build the place setting over time. What if you didn’t get the whole set on wedding day? Save your gift registry for future birthdays and anniversaries.
Glass House: local artwork and funky home decor
Nothing sets the tone for a new house like a fabulous piece of artwork. Glass House is filled with splashy modern art pieces—all original from local artists—and edgy, trendy decor. Even if you don’t have $2K to invest on a piece of artwork for the lucky couple’s new home, offer a gift card for partial amount or go in as a group.
O.C. Tanner Jewelers: Barware for them, lockets for her and sports memorabilia for him
Gift your guys a piece of sports history with O.C. Tanner Jeweler’s latest collection of cufflinks, wallets and bottle openers. For your mom, his mom or your line of gal pals, choose a silver sterling locket they can wear on wedding day and beyond as a formal statement or with a favorite pair of jeans and tee.
True Gentlemen Supply: a tie…AND a jacket
A tie, pocket square and cufflinks are a groomsmen given. Want to really knock it out of the park? Gift your guys—dad included—with custom-tailored jackets. Not only will they all look superb at the altar, the jacket will become attire to wear long after the reception.
