A wedding gift on a budget...

I'm a big fan of customised wedding gifts, but with a pricey tropical destination wedding coming up this Spring, the budget for a gift will be a little tight. Thank goodness for Etsy! In celebration of the bride and groom's start to married life, I've chosen a custom calligraphy return address stamp from Letter Be (also try Primele, both on Etsy) and simple gender-neutral notecards to be personalised with the couples' new family name (think "the smiths") from Brown Paper Goods.

And while I was visiting Etsy, I also purchased some gorgeous letterpress wedding cards from Parrott Design Studio...

Now there's nothing to do but daydream about tropical beaches while I wait for everything to arrive in the post!


  1. Brooke, you are the queen of all things cool and funky! I love the return address stamp!


  2. What a great gift idea, your friends will be thrilled. x

  3. Oh Brooke - I couldn't agree more - awesome wedding gift and such a good price. Love all the options on etsy, hardest bit is choosing the font! I had something made up for me when I moved to my new place. So good to have you back blogging miss - i've missed you! x

  4. What a gorgeous idea - I would love one of those!


  5. Hi Brooke - I've come across your blog & being all new to this I thought I'd leave a comment. Great idea for the wedding gift, I - like you have a wedding to go too that will be pricey too. Look forward to seeing more ideas.
