Introducing…Engraved Cutting Boards – Customize Them For Everyone

Personalize one of our new cutting boards. Established Cutting Board

Personalize one of our new cutting boards to create a beautiful wedding gift. Shown here is the Established Cutting Board from giftsin24.com

We are so pleased to announce the latest new products in our lineup: Beautiful, durable personalized bamboo cutting boards. They come in a variety of attractive designs using our most popular lettering styles and monograms. They’re so pretty, you may not want to cut on them. Luckily, you can use them in so many ways.

Indispensable in Your Kitchen

Our cutting boards measure a generous 8.75 inches by 11.5 inches, offering plenty of room to chop and dice. They are made from bamboo, which is a fast-growing grass that is as hard and durable as wood. It’s a renewable resource and compostable at the end of its life, unlike plastic or glass cutting boards. We recommend hand-washing to keep it looking great for years to come.

Many cutting board designs offer the choice of horizontal or vertical orientation for the personalization. Either way, they look terrific and add a bit of pizzazz to a normally ho-hum kitchen object.

Serving Platters

They work beautifully as serving platters for hors d’oeuvres, muffins, cheeses and more. Planning a relaxing brunch with family? Pile on some home baked muffins, still warm from the oven. Entertaining work friends at home? Offer a selection of three cheeses artfully displayed, along with a bowl of crispy crackers.  The possibilities are endless.

Memorable Gifts

Our engraved cutting boards also make memorable gifts. Newlywed couples would love to see their names and wedding date on a high quality cutting board as part of a shower gift, along with tea towels and useful kitchen utensils. Present one to a new homeowner with the date of their home purchase. Or, bundle one up in a gift box with some gourmet spreads, crackers and wine to a couple celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary.

Your New Go-To Gift For Under $5

Friends and Family Tablet Sets from Giftsin24.

Give us 8 names and you can create 8 personalized gifts. This go-to gift is perfect for birthdays, wedding parties, office mates and more.

Sometimes inspiration for a particular gift for a particular person comes easily. In your mind’s eye, you immediately see the perfect gift, you find it, you give it. But sometimes inspiration doesn’t come. In that case, you need a go-to gift that’s always appropriate, dependable and affordable.

You want to feel proud of your gift, but you also have a budget. So what’s the answer?

Friends and Family Tablet Sets. Make these your go-to gift. Many of our customers swear by them.

Here’s the concept: With one order, you’ll purchase 8 personalized gifts at once. It’s an easy, efficient way to create thoughtful gifts for a group. Think officemates: Add “Samantha” to one tablet, “Grace” to the next, move on to Abigail, Veronica, Madison, Taylor, Sheila and Ann. Press “order” and you’ll receive 8 personalized tablets in 2-5 days (depending on where you live) and they’ll arrive ready for giving.

Your officemates will never know it was so painless for you. All Samantha and the others will see is their own name carefully and beautifully printed on a high-quality note pad in a vivid ink color. They’ll think you worked for days planning, tracking down, and creating this thoughtful gift. Only you will know it took you less than 5 minutes to order and arrived at your door in a matter of days.

Same goes for your children’s teachers, kids’ party favors, bridal party gifts, Christmas gifts and more. Just add a name to each of the 8 tablets (Mr. Seymour, Ms. Brown, etc. or Preston, Declan, Aiden, etc.), choose your ink color, and we’ll print them for you in 24 hours and ship them out to you.

Here’s another beautiful thing: At the regular price of $25.95, each tablet works out to $3.25. And with free shipping, the picture just keeps getting better and better.

Each tablet is made with our high quality paper. Each sheet is 80 lb text, like nice thick copier paper. There are 100 sheets per tablet. And each sheet is a generous 4.4 inches x 6 inches, so there is plenty of room to write.

Want to try it out? Check your calendar for upcoming birthdays for the next few months, give us 8 names, we’ll send the tablets to you by the end of the week, and you can put them in your gift closet until the birthdays roll around. So easy, right?

Impressive Wedding Gifts for the June Bride and Groom

Find impressive wedding gifts for June Brides at Giftsin24.

The Roman origins of the “June bride” isn’t as romantic as it sounds, but in modern times we have infused meaning and magic into the idea.

June, prime wedding time, is just around the corner. History says that the tradition of June weddings came from ancient Roman culture. Juno, Jupiter’s wife and the goddess of marriage, was officially celebrated on June 1, so many families chose this month to plan weddings.  Luckily, today in the U.S. June is filled with the flowers and scents of summer. It’s the time of year when Nature blossoms green, young and full of life.

Some of our other wedding traditions hark from ancient Roman times, as well. For example, these were also the days when grooms began carrying the bride over the threshold to protect her from “evil spirits.” Furthermore, grooms began standing on the right hand side of the bride so he could easily access his sword in case marauding rivals came to steal the bride. And, um, fathers “escorted” their daughters down the aisle because the patriarchs generally used the marriage to pay off debts or advance their careers.

Happily, we’ve given these traditions a more romantic spin. Fast-forward to 2015, and love now fuels our marriages.

Celebrate that love with the perfect gift. Married couples feel a thrill when they Show off their new love. Check out our wide selection of personalized gift ideas, including notes, cards, tablets, notepads and napkins.

Impressive Wedding Gifts

Couples 7 Tablet Set:  They can display their combined names on seven tablets of various sizes in a tasteful stainless steel holder — both beautiful and practical.

Chesapeake One Line Card: We will expertly emboss their names on an oversized card. This Chesapeake card offers plenty of room to write. Choose the optional lined envelopes to make this gift extra special.

Traditional Monogram Note:  They’ll enjoy writing wedding thank you notes on these classic and understated notes. Choose the optional return address if the couple has already found their forever home.

Personalized Napkins and Guest Towels:  Always in style and always impressive.  They’ll enjoy using these at their first “official” get-together as Mr. and Mrs.   And don’t forget, summer BBQ season is also upon us.

 

3 Wedding Thank You ‘Donts’ You Need to Know

Impression Notes from Giftsin24.com make beautiful wedding thank you notes

Impression Notes in black ink on crisp white paper are the perfect canvas on which to express your gratitude.

Wedding season is upon us. Are you ready to write your wedding thank you notes? Don’t fall flat in conveying your gratitude. Avoid these common mistakes, and you’ll be sitting pretty.

Mistake #1 Sending out wedding thank you notes too late.

Do you remember what you did one year ago? Not many other people do either. So be sure that Uncle Marty gets that thank you note pronto, or at least within three months of the wedding.

Mistake #2 Writing a plain vanilla message.

Was your wedding a bore? Is your marriage lacking pizzazz? No way! So why should your thank you notes not reflect that same passion for the giver and the gift. Avoid general statements like: “Thank you for your generous gift.” Snore. Share your excitement with the giver about specific ways you’ll use the gift.

Mistake #3 Sending an e-card.

Yes, we do live in a digital age…but if cousin Sue drove 100 miles to get to your shindig, bought a new dress and gave you a hand-made quilt, she deserves a heart-felt, handwritten note that conveys all your love and appreciation. Unless you had a virtual wedding, avoid virtual cards.

Do You Need to Send a Save-the-Date Card?

Early Spring Save the Date Card by Giftsin24.com

Our Early Spring Save the Date Card elegantly gives guests advance notice of your wedding.

Sending a wedding save-the-date card: when is it necessary and when is it not? These days, there are so many tasks associated with planning a wedding. It’s nice to know if they are all must-dos or might-be-nice-to-dos. Wedding save-the-date cards straddle both.

Yes, You Need a Save the Date Card

Sending a save-the-date card has become a necessity in certain situations. If you are planning a destination wedding, send one. Same goes for a three-day weekend extravaganza. They are also convenient for a holiday weekend wedding. Have a lot of out-of-town guests? Accommodate them by giving them advance notice.

In these situations, as a general rule, send a save-the-date card at least 6 months before the ceremony. For a destination wedding, send one 8 months ahead.

Giving your guests advance notice about your wedding date will give them adequate time to make travel arrangements. They may also need to rearrange work schedules and save for transportation or lodging.

No, You Don’t

If you are planning a simple wedding locally, you won’t need a save-the-date card. A typical two or three month notice is adequate. Plus, you can count of word of mouth helping to inform guests of your wedding date.

4 Steps to Perfect Wedding Thank You Notes

Classic Monogram Bordered Card by Giftsin24.com

Customize the Classic Monogram Bordered Card with a monogram or colored border that matches your wedding colors

The new wedding dishes have found a home in your kitchen. The wedding photos are on their way. And memories of your blissful honeymoon are fresh in your mind. Now what? Have you written your first wedding thank you note yet?

It might be time to tackle that pile of thank you notes you owe to your family and friends. The simple act of handwriting a thoughtful note will be a meaningful memento to them. They put in a lot of effort to help you celebrate. Taking the time to write a beautiful thank you note speaks volumes about the type of person you are and the kinds of relationships you’ll maintain for the rest of your life.

So, find your favorite pen. Choose some beautiful stationery and consult your gift list. Then start writing.

1. The Basic Format for the Wedding Thank You Note

The typical format for a wedding thank you note usually goes like this:

Salutation.

First line: thank them for the gift–be sure to name it. If it’s money, avoid naming the amount. The words “generous gift” will suffice.

Second line: tell them how you plan to use it, or some way that you admire or appreciate it.

Third line: thank them for their friendship or support or for coming to your event

Close. (Be sure both bride and groom sign each note.)

Simple, right?

2. Beyond the Basics

Move beyond these basics when writing to people especially close to you, or those who put extra thought and care into the gift. Perhaps you can keep these people on a separate “short list.” Add a few lines that acknowledge the generosity of parents who footed some of the wedding expenses. Praise the thoughtfulness of an aunt who created a beautiful handmade quilt out of your childhood clothes. Thank a friend who traveled across the country to be there for your big day.

Sienna Monogram Note from giftsin24.com makes a great wedding thank you note

The Sienna Monogram Note features a flowing, elegant monogram. It makes a beautiful wedding thank you note.

3. Add a Small Token

You might also choose to share a small object or additional lines of writing that are meaningful to you. You might tuck in a favorite recipe you discovered at a restaurant on your  honeymoon. Include a special quote from a parent’s toast or a lyric from your first dance. Try slipping in seeds of your favorite tree or fruit or vegetable. Perhaps you might slide in a wedding photo of you and the person you are thanking.

4. Choose Lovely Stationery with a Couple’s Monogram

May we suggest writing your thank you notes on single panel cards or folded notes featuring a beautifully embossed “couple’s monogram”? Your shared last name initial takes the center spot. Her first initial is on the left, his first initial is on the right.

Here are some of our favorites:

Traditional Monogram Note  Simple & tasteful. Thank-you notes folded in white or ivory paper never go out of style. A perennial top-seller, our Traditional Monogram Note features a flowing, embossed script for a timeless look. Ships in 24 hours.

Classic Frame Monogram Note from Giftsin24.com

A couple’s monogram features the shared last initial in the center, her first initial on the left and his first initial on the right.

Classic Frame Monogram Note   Giftsin24 features stationery by the top producer of embossed social stationery in the U.S., and this folding note is one reason why. You have to see and feel it in your hand to understand it: crisp, deeply impressed borders and gracefully winding letters lend elegant formality, while creamy, thick paper provides weight and consequence. Offered in traditional white or ivory with matching envelopes.

Classic Monogram Bordered Card   Fashions come and go, but the Classic Monogram Bordered Card is always in style. Featuring a beautifully rendered monogram in your choice of 10 raised-ink colors and a bold border in your choice of 6 colors, this card offers a multitude of options from which to create your signature look for your wedding thank you note. Try navy ink on white paper for a classic feel. If you like your stationery to match your morning latte, try the mocha ink on ivory paper. As with all our notes and cards, 50 matching envelopes are included. Optional lined envelopes make this stationery set even more yummy.
