  • Best Groomsmen Gifts 2009
    You picked them to stand beside you on one of the biggest days of your life for a reason -- they’re awesome. I'm talking about your loyal groomsmen here. You know, the ones who have endured multiple Saturday afternoon tux fittings, impromptu etiquette lessons from your future mother-in-law, and one too many female-heavy prewedding parties. You couldn't have asked for a better bunch, and because of it, you'll want to thank them for keeping their cool throughout it all. Lucky for you, there are plenty of ways to do so. Here are a few of our favorite picks!

  • Best Bridesmaids Gifts
    You picked the turquoise dress -- they happily agreed to wear it. You called them when your florist went out of business -- they went on a mission to find you a new one. You had a total freak-out when two of them couldn’t make your (third) dress fitting -- they still picked up the phone the next time you called. Yup, you know who we’re talking about: Your ever-so-loyal bridesmaids who’ve been super-supportive since you called them jumping up and down about your engagement (and they jumped with you!). They’ve done so much in your honor; now it’s time to say “thank you” with the perfect bridesmaid gift. Check out these top picks.

  • Best Honeymoon Luggage Essentials
    Why does traveling have to be so complicated? It used to be that you could just pack your bags, hop a plane (on time, no less), and make it to your intended destination without having to worry if your luggage made it there in one piece. Unfortunately, those days are over, and these days packing smart can mean the difference between a smooth start to your vacation and stressing out beside the baggage claim. (Not to mention the money you can save you from all those extra baggage charges.) Keep your honeymoon on schedule with some of my favorite must-have travel items.

  • Best Bridal Shower Gifts
    Bridal shower gifts have come a long way since our mothers got married. While the traditional china, silver, and crystal still have their place on bridal registries, couples are requesting eco-friendly household products, colorful appliances, experiential gifts, and more. Once a bridal shower invite is received, it’s not uncommon to learn that the bride and groom are registered at Sandals Resorts and Recreational Equipment, Inc. (REI), in addition to Macy’s. If all these options seem a bit daunting, think of it this way: More choices mean a variety of options in a range of price points, allowing you to pick the gift that you feel most comfortable giving the happy couple. So just what are the top items brides would like to receive as a shower gift? Ultimately, it depends on their individual bridal registry preferences, but be on the lookout for these best sellers.
