At this time of year, we are all about ghoulish green here at PartyIdeaPros. Today, however, the green we are referring to is the eco-friendly kind. We bring our own bags wherever we shop. And we always highly recommended gifting re-usable totes filled with goodies as welcome bags for your out of town guests. So we did not think it was over the top crazy when we happened upon MomMeMatch‘s suggestion of using Halloween to create a new family tradition of matching re-usable trick-or-treat bags like so many families do with Christmas stockings.
The whole notion of families pulling out their matching family trick-or-treat bags each Halloween and taking an annual family Halloween photo is just #toocute for words especially if you are all dressed in Mommy, Daddy & Me Matching Halloween Costumes. Plus, even if you do not buy in to the whole matching family thing, investing in cute re-usable Halloween trick-or treat bags will model eco-friendly behavior for your children. Continue Reading →
Still searching for the fun yet impressive groomsmen gift that isn't the usual flask or cufflinks? Think personalized beer mugs, pilsners, steins and even wooden beer flights.. We admit, those of us who live in the craft beer capital are obsessed with everything and anything beer so we cannot imagine any groomsmen not appreciating a great stein or a personalized wooden beer flight. And who wouldn't want to display their hand blown half yard 32 oz ale glass with its own personalized cherry wood stand proudly on their office desk.
Below is an overview of just a few of the many beer mugs and pilsners available. Also just an FYI – growlers are among today's most trendy gifts for him!

Summer seems to be the time of year that many of our young friends are setting up new homes and beginning their adult lives, including entering the wonderful world of home entertaining. Not surprisingly, inspired by the amazing bar carts showcased on Pinterest, one of the questions we are most often asked is what are the 10 essentials for the home bar? We recently discovered this great home bar essentials guide by one of our favorite gift merchants, A Gift Personalized (yes, the very same company we turn to for bridesmaid gifts & groomsmen gifts.)

Are you still searching for a fun, elegant & memorable groomsmen gift? Think Personalized Flask. Yes, as you can quickly see flasks come in all shapes, sizes and materials. The classic flask is either metal or metal & leather but today you can also find collapsible canvas flasks, vinyl wrapped flasks, and glass flasks. Their designs range from simple to well, not so simple such as a flask that looks like a retro cell phone or one that sports the insignia of your favorite NFL team or even a horn-shaped flask.
So where to begin? Flasks are hot and they are everywhere from the traditional wedding favor shops to interesting handmade flask designs on Etsy to a sterling silver flask from Tiffany & Co. Most quality flasks are priced from $25.00 – $35.00 but sterling silver and specialty genuine leather can cost you a pretty penny.
Like each bride, each groom has his own unique style (even if he doesn't realize it ) so if we were choosing we would narrow our choices to the look most fitting the groom even if it doesn't 100% go with the wedding theme. A groomsmen gift is all about the guy relationship so if you are all sports buddies go for the sporty flasks. If you are a fun loving goofy bunch, the mustache flasks might be just right, the camouflage flask might appeal a group of guys who go hunting together, or the traditional Wall Street guy might want to stick with a classic black or brown leather style
