Choosing what to give your bridal brigade as a thank you for standing by your side (and making sure you were nice and toasty during your bachelor/ette bash) is no small decision. You want to make sure it’s something meaningful, but preferably that they’d actually use, too. You don’t want to spend a bajillion dollars, but you don’t want to go Dollar Store cheap, either. Ideally, it would be a worthwhile keepsake with a low cheese factor that would stir up fond memories of you each time they put it to use.
There are a million and a half options out there, but we love our homies at Things Remembered for their decades-long (we’re talking like 40 years here, y’all) reputation as a go-to for unique keepsakes and stylish one-of-a-kind gifts. From gifts for your girls to baubles for the boys to awesome trinkets for the ‘rents, Things Remembered has a huge variety of options for everyone you need to give a little somethin’ somethin’ to as a thanks. While we still remember them as a store in the mall where we could get Grandpa Joe an engraved pen, we’re loving them now for personalized colorful tumblers, gold-stamped journals and sleek flasks (stay tuned for giveaway!).
There’s a helluva lot to be said for convenience, too, and with over 600 stores nationwide and in Canada, and the option to buy online and pick up in the store later, Things Remembered pretty much has that on lock. And they tend to have some pretty killer deals:

Ooohhh … y’all! I’ve got such a treat for you wonderful, amazing BABs today and I’m so excited about it! The amazingly supersweet folks over at Hoopla House Creative reached out and wanted to give YOU, darling Broke-Asses, something in honor of the launch of their wedding paper goods site.
To celebrate their launch, Hoopla House is sharing free printable downloads with you guys — but it’s not that simple, because why would it be? Nope. The printables include favor tags, Mr. & Mrs. signs, bridal shower bingo, “Will You Be My Bridesmaid?” cards and blank banners that are awesome for “Thank You!” or “Just Married!” photo props. Because homegirl knows the value of FREE when it comes to wedding land. And for that we thank her.
Oh, and Hoopla House isn’t just giving you ONE style. Nope. They’re throwing out five gorgeous designs for all five printables. Of course you can find the matching invitation suite on Hooplah House’s website, for about $1.88 per card.
But to make this super fun, we’ll do one new design every few weeks, so it’s like constant presents! Besides, I don’t want to overload you too much today … because … and to make your DIY-ing totally worth it …
