Partnering with Pinecrest Part 2: Hostess Gift Guide

For the second part of our gift guide partnership with Pinecrest, we curated a hostess gift guide. We are big proponents of bringing something to a hostess for events or holidays. That said, it can be tough deciding what to bring.

For some of our ideas and favorite items you can find in Pinecrest stores, check out the guide, here.

Cotton Candy Dream Session!

Is there anything better than seeing your kids have the time of their lives? We were so honored to have Brittany Gidley Photography shoot our kids doing what they do best- playing together, eating sugar, and playing dress up! The gorgeous set was styled by the talented Tara of One Stylish Party and the cotton candy was provided by our friend, Emily from Art of Sucre.

We could not be more grateful to have amazingly creative friends in Cleveland!

A Guide to Wedding Welcome Bags!

Lately, we have had weddings on our minds.  It seems like wedding season is in full effect and we are all hopeless romantics!  We absolutely love the details that go in to planning your special day, but realize it can be so easy to overlook some of the ones that may not specifically pertain to the actual ceremony or reception.  Welcome bags or boxes for your guests staying at the hotel are such a sweet touch and a kind way for the bride and groom to acknowledge their appreciation for guests who have traveled in for the big day!  Here’s a simple guide for how to get started:

Choose a vessel. We recommend using a sturdy handled paper bag, canvas tote bag, or a high quality box.


Choose a beverage or two to include in each bag. Bottled water is a great option as it will save guests a trip to the hotel gift shop and be readily available for them after a fun reception and the following morning!

Include fun sweet and salty snacks!  Everyone loves snacks!  We always include local vendors in our bags to showcase Cleveland talent- Chagrin Falls Popcorn and King’s Nuts for salty options and Cocoa Joe’s and Malley’s for our sweet ones, just to name a few.  Including one salty and one sweet satisfies all palettes!

Keep guests informed with all the details of your wedding weekend. We love a quick welcome note, event timeline, a contact phone number in case of questions, and shuttle or bus pick up times for the ceremony or reception.

Include a local map highlighting your favorite places!  There is no better way to explore a new city then with a local’s recommendations.  We suggest highlighting favorite restaurants, bars and shops so that guests can get a taste of your city while they are in town!

Don’t forget the Advil!  You are throwing the biggest part of your life, after all! 

See, not as overwhelming as it seems!  We are here to help though, and would love to be part of your special day.  We are a full service gifting boutique, and create favors, welcome bags, bridal party gifts, and more!  Contact us to learn more about our services at or 216.264.3598.  Follow us on Instagram and Twitter @givegifted



Welcome to the Give Gifted Blog!

Hi friends and fellow gift lovers!  As our business grows and expands, we are finding that we have more to say than Twitter, Facebook or Instagram alone allows!  The idea of blogging has been on our minds for some time now, so we are making it official.  We hope the blog helps you get to know us better and gives you great gift giving ideas, especially as we approach the holiday season! 

Over the next few weeks keep an eye out for Hostess gift ideas for Thanksgiving, Christmas and the New Year; as well as gift giving guides for all your loved ones as the holidays draw near.  We will feature some of our favorite vendors and partners and give you a peek into some of our tips and tricks for making gifting so special! 

We absolutely love what we do and are so thankful for all the fellow small business owners (we are talking to you Brittany at Brittany Gidley Photography & Tara at One Stylish Party- just to name a few) who have believed in us and let us create some beautiful gifts for their amazing clients!
