Here are a few fun ideas for Christmas takeaways. I found two styles of chinese food style containers that I really liked – then topped them with a wood cutout that coordinated. My sister Aimee, Kenzie (my daughter) and I made traditional cutout Christmas sugar cookies with a 40-year-old recipe. Next, we attached Amazon gift cards to these for my husband’s company Christmas party. Cookies AND free stuff!

We love these adorable cake or cupcake toppers for wedding cakes or shower celebrations. There is something decidedly un-wedding about them. Something about them reminds me of the Sunday funny papers or maybe its weeble wobbles – but these two seem to have their own little story to tell…

Made of wood and hand-painted, the size works really well for cupcakes or a full-fledged wedding cake. We noticed that Design Sponge (who we love) also likes these and has featured them. If you’d like to purchase these sweeties just email us at jennifer@lavishgifts.com. $40 for the pair.

We found these fantastic wedding favor ideas – they are really perfect for small gatherings. These customizable ceramic eggs can have names, inspirational words, a date – just about anything imprinted onto them before firing. They come with or without the tiny nests. Then guests can take them away ad enjoy them in their office or at home. Think placecards for small weddings or special gatherings – even favors for a baby shower. We love these! Available with nest from $14. Email jennifer@lavishgifts.com.

Also shown in the pics is our bridesmaid’s thank you gift box. We love, love the dogeared necklace that is part of this thank you box. You wear it until it falls off and then your wish comes true! Marcus and I loved these at market and wore them until they fell off, which for me took about 3 months. The box also has fantastic chocolates from Bloomsberry – the “no weight gain” chocolate bar is our favorite.

Contact us at jennifer@lavishgifts.com if you want more info on the favors, gift boxes or pricing for these items. Also just about everything shown can be customized with colors and information for your wedding so get with us if you are interested in finding out more.

We are so excited to announce that Lavish will be participating in our first bridal event here in Houston this weekend! We will be showing the cutest wedding favors I have ever seen and awesome gift collections in our signature boxes. We are planning to showcase a bachelorette box and also a bridesmaids thank you gift box as well. Can’t wait to report on the event as we have had such a huge number of RSVPs for the event that we actually had to hire a valet. Yikes! Bridezillas bring it on. The event is this Sunday, May 17th starting at noon at the Sari Motley Cosmetics studio. Her studio is located at 1724 Marshall Street. Contact jennifer@lavishgifts.com if you need info!

Marcus and I are so excited for my sister Aimee, of Deuce Creative fame. She will be married next week here in Houston and its going to be fabulous. Aimee and I were looking for a VERY last minute wedding takeaway for guests at the reception. Enter Jackie Burdisso of Maison Burdisso. She does gorgeous french-inspired foods and is famous around these parts for her French macarons. I met Jackie and first tasted her macarons at the Midtown Farmer’s Market located at T’afia, Monica Pope’s restaurant. The market features only the best of fresh produce and some prepared foods and cheeses. Jackie does her confections of perfection in a rainbow of colors, and her flavors are often exotic. She often has blueberry, blood orange and tiramisu as well as standbys like pistachio, coffee and vanilla bean.

The lightbulb came on to give a macaron as a favor for guests at Aimee’s wedding. But half the fun of French macarons is looking at them. So we came up with the idea to have an array of flavors and colors for guests, all in clear plastic boxes. When I spoke with Jackie she showed me the perfect size and it even has a white organza bow on top! Tres jolie. Now it’s just T minus 8 days till the wedding!
