Asking my Bridesmaids with Greetabl

Today I want to share with you one of my favorite ways to make a gesture. Overall, I think kind, small gestures in our society are sadly overlooked. Remember the excitement of racing home to see if you got any snail mail? There’s a certain delight that comes with receiving a small gift right to your door. Opening the package. Knowing it was sent with love. It’s the experience & the thought more so than an expensive gift.

For a long time, I would peruse the card aisle looking for the perfect card to send to a friend who needed a word of encouragement after a bad breakup or just a “Hi. I miss you, thanks for being my BFF” card. Well, I’ve found something even better. Greetabl.


When I was thinking of ways to ask my bridesmaids to be a part of our wedding party, I couldn’t land on an idea that would stick especially because my girls are placed all around the country. Painted macaroons? What if they end up smooshed? Personalized bottles of champagne? What if it arrives broken?

I worked with Greetabl to create personalized packages for each of my bridesmaids. With Greetabl, you can combine a personalized card, photos AND a small gift! They alleviated all my fears of gifts arriving crushed or crumbled. It’s so easy!

  1. Choose your favorite background & add photos.
  2. Choose your small gift & add message.
  3. Enter mailing address & ship to make your BFF’s day!

The gift choices are awesome and range from a cozy pair of socks or a small candle to Sugarfina sweets and necklaces. Gifts perfect for any occasion. When you choose your favorite background, you have the opportunity to add photos that rip apart from the package that your recipient can save!

When you sign up with Greetabl, you collect points and can even become a Greetabl Insider, which is $29 per year but gets you FREE SHIPPING! If you’re planning to send even just a few of these out, this is an incredible deal!

I will absolutely be sending these as thank yous, housewarmings & beyond.

Cheers

Valentine’s Day Gift Guide: For Her

Happy Friday! We’ve made it to the brink of the weekend and officially are in the single digit countdown to Valentine’s Day. What’s your take on the holiday? Do you guys really do it up? Personally, I don’t like to buy in too much to V Day; a thoughtful card and kind gesture or small gift is what we usually do. For me, it’s more about time spent together. If you’re in need for last minute ideas for your lady friend, here are a few gifts for less than $100.
If you’re looking to do something a little more interactive, plan a trip to an art museum or book a couple’s massage. I always think an experience can be the greatest gift.. but don’t forget the flowers!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
Cheers!
