What gifts do you give?

What is one of the most favorite gifts you have received? 

My favorites are the personalized ones, the ones that couldn't be given to anyone else. 



A perk of photographing my friends is being able to give them some of the most personalized gifts, it really is a great feeling watching them open something that was made just for them! 

Here is what I gave my Best Friend for her wedding shower along with some of my favorite gifts from our wedding and showers. 


Gifts to my Bestie. Canvas, Card & Thirty-One tote


This is a lovely plaque from my parents with the Norwegian table grace and some great words of encouragement 

Let me know what are some of your favorite gifts to give? To receive? 

...

Oh wait I almost forgot to tell you my friend Kate is turning another year older and to celebrate she isn't asking for presents but instead giving you presents. Enter to Win the giveaway now!

  3. It's all about making it personal. I love giving monogrammed things or something that ties in the entire family of theirs. Any craft by hand is always great too. it shows that you took the love and time to dedicate to them! Love the blog, Laura Beth. I just started and would love the support! Cheers, Lena (www.shinystout.com)

  4. I totally agree with you on the personalized gift giving. I think it makes the gift that much more special when it is just for the individual/family than something your neighbor could have. I think that is what I love about crafts, is that you make the good, not a corporation that sells the same thing across the country or world.

    I love giving my friends homemade gifts or finding fun things on Etsy that are personalized. I've given my friend a monogrammed wooden cutting board from a deal on Pick Your Plum. I also have some gifts that I painted to personalize them that I will be giving this Christmas that I can't go too in detail on yet ;)

  5. Personalized, handmade gifts are awesome! And photography is an awesome gift to give, too! A couple years ago I gave my grandparents scrapbooks with professional pictures of their grandkids--photos of your loved ones are very precious, I think.

  8. I love giving personalized gifts, especially for weddings. I found an Etsy shop that sells custom cutting boards that turn into cookbook holders. It's going to be my go-to gift now!
