Great Find: Men’s Gift Sets at Celebrations in Paper
categories: favor and gift ideas, Grooms, health and beauty, Wedding Resources

Sometimes the best things are discovered out of pure frustration and today’s great find is an example of just that. Celebrations in Paper is not only the loveliest invitation shop, it’s also a place you’ll want to spend some time browsing their collection of cards, gifts and baubles; however, much to owner Rene Showalter’s frustration, they haven’t had much to offer the guys. She’s often asked by customers about men’s gift sets and short of the typical suggestions (a flask, a Swiss Army knife, cuff links, etc.), she didn’t feel like she had a solid “go to” gift suggestion until now!

At Celebrations in Paper you’ll now be able to purchase these 3 men’s gift sets from British company Men’s Society. The Groomsmen Survival Kit is ideal for the wedding weekend; this is the perfect survival kit for your wedding day, from wedding rings, dry eyes to clean shoes we have you covered…it contains all your essentials you need for the big day to ensure your looking ship-shape and sharp.

Great Find: Balitello Socks
categories: Grooms

We’re giving the grooms and the groomsmen- or rather their feet- some much deserved attention today. We recently received a pair of Balitello socks and while they may not be the sexiest part of wedding planning, socks can definitely be a FUN part of wedding planning. You’ve seen grooms and groomsmen hamming it up with coordinated colorful socks, right? But have you ever wondered if those socks were actually comfortable or were they too thin so the guys ended up with blisters? Or did they slip down and bunch at the ankle all night? These are the things we think about.

From the moment we opened the package, we knew Balitello socks were different than any sock we had felt before- they were so perfectly padded and constructed that even before wearing them, we became fans. After one of our hubs wore a pair all day while walking between meetings on a very large semi-conductor chip maker’s campus (i.e., a campus that would really put the socks to the test), he reported that they were, in fact, the most comfortable socks he’d ever worn. That’s good enough for us!

Balitello’s ‘Look Great, Feel Awesome’ slogan does just that with their stylish designs as well as their unprecedented comfort-technology which includes: extra padding on the heel/toe, arch support, and breathable micro-fiber fabric.

Another thing that makes Balitello unique is that the socks are offered through a monthly delivery service- the “Sock of the Month Club”. Here’s how it works: You sign-up here and they send you a pair of socks every month. The convenience of this service is just another reason we think Balitello is a great find.

This is the Balitello sock of the month for November (Movember= an annual event involving the growing of mustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men’s health issues). We like it very much!

Great Find: Wally Wallet for iPhones
categories: favor and gift ideas, Giveaways and Contests

We’ve been hitting the jackpot lately with our bridal party gift finds and we’re not stopping now- The Wally Wallet for iPhones by Distil Union is one of those things that makes you smack your head and ask “Why didn’t I think of that?”.

Wally solves a problem in a very chic way- it’s a leather wallet that you affix to the back of your iPhone 4/4s or 5 (and most iPhone cases) to hold what you carry most; it’s roomy enough for some cash and a few cards so you have what you need all in one place. Perhaps the best way to understand Wally is to watch him in action:

Wally Wallet for iPhone comes in 2 colors- Cowboy Brown and Ninja Black and let’s face it, those are really the only colors you need.

Happy Planning from your Arizona Wedding Blog~Kelly
