Many of my good friends have birthdays in August, so you know what that means... I'm about to embark on a gift-giving extravaganza. In honor of their peridot pleasures, I'm making somewhat of a cheat sheet for this weeks TPP. Even though most of these friends aren't necessarily preppy, everyone loves a preppy present. Especially from their favorite JGIWC. Especially if it's cocktail related.
This week's inspiration comes from my dear friend MMM. She gave me a nice bottle of wine and a fleur-de-lis wine stopper for Hanukkah. It was perfect; something to share and something all for myself. Plus, I think of her every time I cork a bottle of vino, which is just the way she would want it! What a great gift idea; I hope she doesn't mind if I borrow it.
I love this monogrammed wine stopper from Monogram Chick. The price point is perfect and with seven different fonts and two types of wood to choose from, there's something for everyone.
My dear friend AMH recommended The Pink Monogram on her blog. I found the most beautiful monogrammed red wine glasses over there.
An absolute steal at $48.
(Also available in white wine style.)
Not all of my pals are wine gals. Luckily, my friends over at Preppy Parade have lots of great "Cheers to you!" gifts that are not exclusive to grapes.
Is it just me, or is it near impossible to find great cocktail napkins that are non-disposable? Stop your search! I found the perfect ones over at Preppy Parade. With 12 different fonts and 21 different thread colors, the combinations are endless! These will pair well with a nice bottle of top shelf spirit.
Have a friend who likes to play bartender?
This embroidered bar towel just may be the perfect thing. Not a Jimmy Buffet fan? Hey, it happens. (Though I sure do know plenty!) Preppy Parade offers two other adorable options.
If you have something else in mind, the lovely T over at Preppy Parade will take requests for custom orders!
Speaking of the lovely T, I want to take a minute to share some beautiful gifts she sent me!
The disk below my badge reel is a monogrammed pocket mirror! Preppy perfection!
