Hostess Gifts, Bridal Party Gifts, and Luncheon Favors

This is a description of the gifts that we purchased for our wedding party and friends.  I can't imagine that many of my blog readers would care about my thank you gifts but I'm documenting everything else so I didn't want to exclude it...especially considering how much fun it was!
 I made 5 of these hostess gifts for the ladies who hosted our showers.  I included Ulta lotion and post it notes.  Yes...post its.  I love them.  I'm obsessed with them.  I realize that modern people use their phones for note taking but old fashioned sticky notes are still very useful.  And have you see the post it section lately, the brand has reinvented itself and is no longer the boring yellow color of yesteryear.
 These earrings were purchased from Etsy seller Danique.  I saw these earrings on a popular designer's website but they were no longer available for purchase.  I was so excited to find a similar pair on Etsy. Her customer service is fantastic as well!
 These frames were purchased for our mothers.  We chose a sweet saying for the top of the frame, our birthdays are inscribed under the left picture and our wedding date under the right picture.
 I purchased a set of pearls for our flower girl - my niece.  These are great quality so I hope they will "grow" with her.

 My Matron of Honor has been very supportive during my engagement and throughout wedding planning.  I wanted to give her something special to show my appreciation.  I purchased a simple silver Pandora bracelet for her and a drop pearl charm.
This silver train bank was perfect for our ring bearer.  R wanted something that he could keep for a long time.  This bank has his initials inscribed on the top of it.

The groomsmen will all receive a pocket knife with their name on it.  These are awesome to look at and really sturdy.  We also purchased their socks and ties for the wedding.
This wasn't really a gift.  I found these silver compacts at Michaels of all places and loved them so much I wanted to give them as favors for my bridal luncheon.  It was really hard to find enough of them - apparently a lot of people must have thought they were just as cute as I did.  I'm so glad the few that I found were intact...I had a giant fear that I'd bring them home and the mirrors would be shattered.
