In the News: Great Handmade Gifts Featured in Modern Bride

MODERN BRIDE, June 1, 2007 — “Lately, guest gifts seem to fall into one of two hot categories: something completely personalized, or something to eat,” writes Modern Bride reporter Ann Cochran. “You’ll find great options for both approaches at a Virginia-based Web site, greathandmadegifts.com.”

She goes on to say: “In the customizable department, a cool option is the personalized wine ring. Owner Hope Katz Gibbs offers “zillions of designs,” so you can actually give each guest one that suits his interests, from a stethoscope to a sailboat. Each ($3.50) comes in an organdy bag or a tiny box.

Rumor has it that wedding guests expect something chocolate, so a decadent chocolate favor might be the perfect party finale. Gibbs’ white chocolate swans or her rich chocolate truffles (by Schakolad Chocolate Factory) are both great options — and they even come in sugar-free versions.
