New Year - New Decade

A New Year is such a great time to start fresh. Wicked Stitches decided to start writing a blog. We want to write about how much we love making custom gifts, our shop, the people we meet and the gifts we make for them. We thought we would start by sharing our favorite gifts.

Baby Gifts! We make a lot of baby gifts! Over the years we have put together a beautiful collection of baby apparel, blankets and pillows that we personalize to make The Best Baby Gifts Ever. Hands down our favorite blanket is the Chenille Polka Dot Blanket. Not sure what the world would to without chenille. It’s gorgeously soft and the colors are so delicious! Soft as a cloud – really it is amazing. It’s a sure winner. Our Read to me – pocket pillow is a close second! So darn cute, we offer different fabrics and colors, and all are super sweet! Made with a pocket to hold a treasured book, this is the most popular Baby Shower gift, its perfect for book themed showers! Our proximity to the hospital makes our Baby Name Hat the perfect gift to take along to see the new baby! It’s so nice to get that first picture of the babe in a personalized item! Priceless.

Another thing we learned about babies – is that they make Grandmothers! This is a wonderful thing to celebrate and we have witnessed the magic a new Grandma brings to the family and to her friends. Perhaps your sister or friend has just become a Grandma – mark this occasion and give her something special. So many of our clients want to make a gift for them. So not to disappoint our customers, we have created some great gifts with Grandma in mind.

People want to give a gift that’s remembered. A gift that means something – sentimental, beautiful and of course personal. This sentiment is very important when it comes to buying a gift for a Bride, - our Wedding Dress Label simply cannot miss! Sewn in bridal blue, it’s personalized with a beautiful saying and packaged in a gorgeous silver box. It can be her “something blue” sewn into her Wedding Dress. This is the best Bridal Shower gift – and one the Bride will not forget.

Monograms and personalized gifts are also a great idea for the newlyweds. Monograms on towels and pillows are so popular and look so regal. It almost doesn’t matter what color thread you use – because there hasn’t been one set of monograms we don’t like. Giving something personal is a wonderful way to celebrate the new Mr. & Mrs.

If you want to give something great – our advice is to be personal. Give monogrammed gifts. Show your love by showing you thought of that person. You spent the time to give them something special. That’s what makes you and your gift memorable. The old saying – “it’s the thought that counts” still rings true.
