Izola has been one of my (and Chad’s!) favorite brands without me even knowing it…their candles are beyond amazing, they’ve got wickedly smart products for guys like flasks & dopp kits, and just great gifts overall. They’ve even got cool guestbooks for your wedding! They’ve just introduced the ability to customize their classic flasks, so they’re easily the greatest gift ever for guys. Since most of our giveaways are for the ladies, I’m thrilled that this week we’re partnering with Izola to outfit your groomsmen (up to 5 max) with customized flasks & All for One pocket knives as gifts! They’re pretty much guaranteed to love them. So leave a comment below for your chance to win, and the winner will be announced on Friday. Good luck!

Selecting gifts for some of your dearest friends can be tough. A simple and thoughtful way to say thank you to your attendants is a personalized item. These items are some of my favorites out right now.

With so many couples living together before marriage, its obvious that most have already set up their home with the usual registry items, like plates, glasses, serveware, etc. So rather than clogging up your already tight space (because in NYC, who has a ton of space anyway??), you can register for fun experiences through Better Ever After. The difference with Better Ever After is that you’re not registering for cash, you’re getting gift certificates for actual experiences….like learning how to brew your own beer, taking a neighborhood food tour, or getting an interior design consultation! There are lots of activities to choose from, and its a great way to keep that wedding bliss going long after the day is done.

When Chad moved to Brooklyn, he came with pretty much a couple of suitcases and an X-box (thankfully we got rid of the xbox pretty quick!). I had already been living in our studio apartment for a couple of months so I was established in the furniture department, but we needed to pick up some stuff for him pretty quick, like a wardrobe, desk, etc. We managed to hit a sample sale in our neighborhood and scored a side table with a little ding in it that he just HAD to have by the sofa for $25. We still have it 7 years later, and I’m definitely due for an upgrade.
This little gold side table is totally up my alley, but this white & espresso number or walnut table is probably more Chad. The great thing is, if we were getting married all over again, we could register for any of them at Target. And while we’re at it, might as well throw in some goodies when we entertain, like some new barware & bartools. That’s the great thing about registering, even though you may already have something, like plates, wine glasses or even pillows, its the perfect time to upgrade them to something new!
So tell me, is there anything in your house that you’d like to upgrade when you set up your registry?
