[Simplesong is one of my daily reads, and if you spend two minutes over there you'll understand why. In addition to blogging, Suann is also a graphic designer after my own heart:  simple, classic taste with a touch of whimsy. Just like her guest post!]

Hi! I’m Suann from SIMPLESONG and I’m thrilled to be here today. I thought I’d share some fun bridesmaid gift ideas. I’ve come up with a couple of themes for the “preppy friend”, the “foodie friend” and the friend that loves handmade. Package your gift in pretty box with a big satin bow and you’re sure to show your appreciation to your bridesmaids in style!

For the preppy friend what about (1) a personalized tote, (2) a stripey shirt [add a monogram for extra fun!], (3) wellies, (4) personalized cushions, (5) a stack of bracelets with special sayings , (6) the true prep book would be a wonderful addition to your gifts, (7) monogram correspondence, (8) a gift set from Russell & Hazel, (9) or an extra special stationery gift box?

For the foodie friend what about (1) an heirloom apron, (2) a letterpress printed recipe box, (3) a set of customized chocolate, (4) a wine gift box, (5) a big box of French macarons, (6) heirloom measuring spoons, or a (7) a very sweet painting?

And for the friend who loves a handmade gift, what about (1) an Elva Fields necklace, (2) personalized correspondence, (3) a special piece by Paloma’s Nest, (4) a floral necklace, (5) a pretty clutch, or a (6) personalized stamp with hand lettering?

Thanks, Kathryn, for having me today! And congrats on your big day …. wishing you a lifetime of happiness!

    I just sent a link to this post to my husband and family telling them that if they ever need to find a gift for me I would take any one of these. Gorgeous!

    I hit the link for the letter pressed recipe cards and it appears to be broken.
    If someone gets a chance I’d love to be able to find out who makes it?

    The heart shaped measuring spoons would make a great stocking filler or as a little gift for a bridesmaid.

    There are available repair kits, and there are videos
    online that help you. OK, first everything that
    is sold in a store is typically expected to have a barcode.
    Reactive power arises due to the effects of capacitance and inductance of components in the load to be powered by
    the AC circuit.

    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.

    The design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon.
    Kudos

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your
    site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own a
    similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam feedback?
    If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can
    suggest? I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any support is very much appreciated.
