Kitschy items proclaiming your newly engaged status are ubiquitous these days, but none are quite as cheeky as this mug. The ceramic coffee-carrier is safe for the dishwasher and the microwave, and we think it’s the perfect accessory for the sassy bride-to-be.

Who doesn’t love Red Giraffe Designs? The local darling has been opening brick-and-mortar shops left and right, but its Etsy presence has stayed strong. Right now, their “jewelry for a cause” bangles, available in aluminum, brass or copper and supporting the Down Syndrome Association of Central Ohio, make a perfect bridesmaid gift that will bring a smile to your ladies and the folks served by the DSACO.

Quick, what will you do with your phone, tissues and spare lip product on your wedding day? Many brides don’t think about how they’ll carry the essentials, but it’s an important detail when you have a photographer following you around all day. This Lucite clutch circa the 1960s would be an excellent accessory for any vintage-inspired bride on her wedding day and beyond.

The pine wood planter box also can be customized with your name. Order the entire set or go mason jars-only!
