Flasks are underrated but make great gifts

Flasks are such an underrated, unique present! Who couldn’t use a flask?

Talk about versatility, just imagine, if you will, the following scenarios with a unique, personalized flask:

  1. A concert where mixed drinks are $12 but a large coke is $4. You do the math.
  2. A football/sports game where a little vial of vodka can be easily concealed in a large hoodie or coat.
  3. A Mad Men themed party.
  4. A poker table. You’re a shark, drink like one!
  5. A wedding, especially when there’s no open bar.
  6. Any night on the town. Let’s face it. Drinks are expensive. Spiking your own drink with a flask won’t break the bank.
  7. Family holidays. You know the type. It’s a shrimp cocktail hold the shrimp kind of gathering.
  8. The In-Law’s house. Definitely need to pre-game that.
  9. Golf course. When the 11th hole comes around…you’re going to need a pick-me-up. Enter trusty flask.
  10. New Year’s Eve Time Square. You’re trapped. Buzz is wearing off and your cold, except, wait, you have a flask!

The best part? Flasks know no gender. Males and females alike can benefit from the contents and discreetness of a petite drink carrier. What a perfect bridesmaid or groomsmen gift!

Be the hero. Buy a flask. Better yet, make it personalized. Become the gift-giving God/Goddess you were destined to be.

All flasks shown above and more are available for purchase at

Personalized Wedding Sandals {at Best Wedding Sites Boutique}

It's been a while since I posted anything about the Best Wedding Sites Boutique and just this week 4 new wedding sandals have been added so I just had to share. I know these sandals are for sale in my store, but I LOVE THEM! And, the Love Sandals have been selling like crazy these past few weeks. These new sandals are available in the following styles: bride, bridesmaid, maid of honor, and mother of the bride. They are the perfect personalized gift for your attendants and for the bride as a special "congratulations on your engagement" gift.

Posting is light today as I've become backlogged again with emails and need some time to get caught up - but, I'll be back tomorrow with a lovely DIY wedding for you. In the meantime, don't forget to enter our latest contest for 2 wedding parasols from Customized Wedding Creations.
