Gifts for the Pack

I knew I wanted to gift my girls something awesome. Save my sister, I’ve been in (or will be) in all my ‘maids’ weddings, and they were incredibly generous with their gifts”¦like, really generous. Plus, they took a lot of the good ideas!

First, in lieu of a card, I got everyone a copy of this book:

We’re using part of it as one of our readings, and I love how it appropriately translates from how I feel about Wolfman to how I feel about my ‘maids. Some sample pages:

Isn’t that the cutest? I wrote (and colored!) all throughout the text and underlined parts that applied to my relationship with that particular ‘maid. I had a vision that they would read it and then, during the ceremony, recognize that although those words were for Wolfman, they were for them too.

Next, I got them all different necklaces from Edor (the Etsy shop I’m obsessed with, previously mentioned here). I got them in gray/green colors so they could pair them with their dresses if they wanted to.

Lastly, I got everyone a nice pair of cashmere gloves:

It took me FOREVER to find this last component. I wanted to get something seasonal since it was somewhat unique that I am getting married during the winter. I’m not going to list out the things I was considering in case my ‘maids are bummed this is what they ended up with (kidding), but suffice it to say that I looked at pretty much anything winter related. I saw these and thought they were perfect—they’re Marc Jacobs and cashmere (read: should be hella expensive), but I got them for a steal. Seriously.

I also got each girl (and myself) one of these:

I don’t really count it as a gift since it’s not the MOST useful thing ever, and I got them for sort of selfish reasons”¦I want to recreate this picture:

This was another item I searched forever for—I didn’t want to spend a ton on them since they’re mostly photo props, so I was really excited to find them at Target. I’m excited to have some “fur” at the Wolf wedding. I plan on giving everything to them after the rehearsal dinner—hopefully they’ll be a hit!

    I love the idea of gifting copies of the book! 🙂 We’re using it as a reading in our wedding and you’re so right that it applies to friendships, as well. So unique and awesome!
