How to Add a Personal Touch to Your Spring Wedding

How to Add a Personal Touch to Your Spring Wedding

Unique Wedding Gifts for a Personal Touch

There are always those people as part of your wedding party that you just couldn't pull the special day off without. Bridesmaids, special friends, mothers, fathers, and, of course, the Maid of Honour (the MOH). In all the hustle and bustle of the big event it is easy to get swept away and not stop and really appreciate how important these special people are and how much they mean to you in moving forward with your new life.

When A Card just isn't Enough

Finding a perfect card for those important people is easily the best way to make sure you remember to tell someone how much you care. In no way should it only be said with ONLY a card, but it's a start. This is where we started thinking.... well, why not make that card extra unique? Why can't it serve as a keepsake and memory of how important these people are and how much you appreciate them being in your life? Well, it can. So we tried for something along those lines :)

The Bridesmaid Card

We paired a unique charm necklace with a silver plated chain and added it to a card to create that all in one gift idea. With dozens of quotes to say the right thing for the right occasion, and the ability to customize the charms on the necklace, it is an amazing way to show how much you care. We will be introducing these cards at the One of a Kind Spring Show in Toronto next week and would love to know what you think! 

If not with a card, what are some other unique ways you've shown your wedding party just how much they mean to you? Let us know on Facebook and we will give you a surprise!

The Gift For All Occasions: When You Need That Little Extra Something

Sometimes there are occasions where you just can't think of what to get someone - we have all been there, I know -and while we may have some ideas in mind there just isn't that personal touch to add to your occasion. It was with this in mind that we started work on a new design for our Charm Note Cards.
A small note card and envelope is paired with a beaded clip on charm to create an all in one gift idea. Of course they can be given as a part of a larger gift but Kat also designed them with  Baby and Wedding Showers in mind as small favours or 'Thank You's' - and I think she is right!
So when you need a little something extra, we've got just the card for you! We will be showcasing them at the upcoming 'One of a Kind Show' in Toronto for the Spring Show. The show will run from March 26-30th. Come by and have a look at these and a number of other All in One Card solutions.
Oh! and let us know what you think! 
Talk to you soon!

Telling Stories Through All The Special Occasions in Our Lives

The Stories of Our Lives are Made Through Special Occasions    

     Stories are kind of our thing. Our stories, random stories and the stories of some of the people who have bought cards - because behind each gift and special occasion is a whole world. Everyone has a story to tell and we've found, since starting to sell cards, that most people just want to share that story . Weddings, Birthdays, Husbands, Wives, Trips and Tragedy - there is always something extraordinary going on in all of our lives but until we stop to think about it and relay it, it may just pass us by.

    We hope to use this forum to share all the stories that surround our lives and the lives of our customers. There is always something to be learned and enjoyed from every tale and it gets you thinking about how many little adventures we really do have in our own lives. Feel free to email us to share your own stories at drew@katndrew.com.

Gift Review from Kat n' Drew    

    Beyond the stories, we look to create a community of giving. We make cards with gifts included - so what kind of card makers would we be if we didn't continually give more ourselves. 

- We will interview gift shops that have like minded approaches to giving and carry unique, inspiring items

Kat and Drew Cards

- We will take special items we've found and used ourselves and review them as suggestions for your own continued giving

- We hope to keep you informed about the creative community in our area, telling you about upcoming shows and events that are sure to hold artistic surprises

- I'm kind of a music person, so chances are I will be sharing whichever great new tune keeps us happy during the day

-We'll share all of your stories as well as the small stories that make up our days and, in turn, make up your cards     

Share Your Own Stories and Special Occasions    

    We hope you enjoy and feel encouraged to follow along and participate - it's about the stories that surround the special occasions in our lives, how could they not be the most important things to us :)

- Drew
