Looking for a unique attendant gift or favor? Here are a few of our favorite picks that each offer something that’s a little “outside-the-box”. You can’t beat these handcrafted and locally made gift and favor options. (And, don’t get jealous if Wilmington isn’t where you call “home”. Each of these options can be shipped to your door.)
1. For “The Terribly Trend-Savvy Bride” ~ Wearable Art options are available in abundance from the collection of Kopious Jewelry. Inspired by nature, each piece is meticulously handcrafted by local Wilmington artist, Kristin Wood. Did we mention the Kopious handbags? Your girls are going to love these!
2. For “The Beer Enthusiast Groom” (& his merry groomsmen, of course) ~ Functional art (of sorts) courtesy of the Left-Handed Beer Drinker. These Beer Box “totes” are handmade by local craftsman, John Cole. Each box is an original and designed for both function (read: transporting cold beer) and envy. Wilmington natives can purchase the boxes at The Eclectic etc.…or you can contact John directly for custom creations.
3. For “The Epicurean Couple” ~ Culinary art in the form of delightfully satisfying ice cream sandwiches. Christian and Kelly Nye make up the husband-wife duo responsible for these sweet treats. Available in both regular and mini (read: dangerous overindulgence) size, the Nye’s Cream Sandwiches are a crowd-pleaser for the most discriminating guests’ palate. They are particularly enjoyable during the warmer months of the year…which, for us Southerners, is 9 or so out of 12.
You may have noticed a trend with each of our locally-sourced faves. What can we say? We love Wilmington! And, we love to #shoplocal.
