2. Chevron Frame, $28
Give the gift of nostalgia with this natural Chevron Frame by Eccolo, available in blue or gray.

This trendy decoration is made earth-consciously with renewable materials and non-endangered species.
3. Artisan Tasting Box 3-Month Subscription, $75
For the food-lovers of the group, choose this collection of eclectic artisan products from Hatchery. A three-month subscription will give your girls a roundup of hand-selected ingredients from around the country that they may not have otherwise found, including spices, seasonings, jams, and syrups.
4. Custom Wood-Inlay Map, $120
This incredibly unique gift idea allows you to commemorate special moments in your friendship with a handcrafted, wood-inlay map from Woodcut Maps. Select your wood type, pin-point locations, and get a preview of your map before gifting.
5. 2-Person Wine and Cheese Cooler, $55
Put this on your registry, and then also share the love with your wedding party. These insulated 2-Person Wine and Cheese Coolers from Picnic at Ascot come with glasses, napkins, a corkscrew, a cutting board, and even a bottle stopper. Complete the gift with a bottle of your girls’ favorite wine for an easy wedding party option.
6. Kings Road Mug 4-Piece Set, $68
A less expensive gift doesn’t have to equal sacrifice in taste. These beautiful porcelain mugs by Rosanna have a 24K gold crown motif overlay, and the set can be divided among four attendants. Throw in some aromatic loose tea tied with a ribbon in your wedding colors for a lighthearted packaging option.
7. Painting Event, $50
Instead of giving traditional gifts, why not share a ‘cocktails and painting’ night with your girls? With various locations across the country, Paint Nite celebrates the artistic talents of your group with nonjudgmental instructors and step-by-step directions. Easels, paint, aprons, canvases and brushes are provided–just add liquid talent!
