What To Get For the Couple Who Have Everything? The *BEST* Wedding Gift EVER.

May 17, 2018 2 min read

You may not be a guest at the royal wedding this weekend (in spite of the fascinator you have all ready to go!)... But, we all have those friends.

You know, those friends who are getting married and what on EARTH could they possibly need or want as a wedding gift? The registry (if there is one) is dull, or they've asked for cash (a move that seems to get less tacky in the age of dead etiquette and sky-high housing prices). Officially, Harry and Meghan asked for charitable donations in lieu of wedding gifts, so yes, if that is the case with your own newlyweds, then by all means, donate to the charity of their choice (or Friends of Basha)!

However, I, for one, often still feel compelled to give something tangible as a present to a new couple. For me, it's a way to share the wealth, to be generous, to give as we have been given to. Also, a way to express my care for them in a way that is memorable and appreciated. 



A one-of-a-kind, hand-stitched kantha quilt from dignify is THE BEST WEDDING GIFT. We've sold hundreds and hundreds of them as wedding gifts, so at this point, I will just shout it boldly from the rooftop (or, rather, out into the internet abyss) with no shame , because it is true. A kantha throw is a gift that is unique, beautiful, long-lasting, useful, and meaningful.

For a couple who are interested in social concerns, it means so much more that the blanket wasn't mass manufactured in a factory and has an amazing story behind it. But for a couple who are not particularly intentional about those things, a kantha throw is nonetheless a fabulous gift, just on the merit of the kantha itself! (What is kantha, anyway?)



From customers:

"My friend LOVED - I'm using the word "love" to describe her reaction - the blanket I gave her for her wedding shower. It filled me with immense amounts of joy to see her delight and the delight of the other women there from this blanket. 

She loved the softness of it, and the softness/texture it would bring to their home, and the story behind it. She loved the artisan's name on it, and she loved that it meant something. And I loved being able to give something of quality that had meaning. It honestly felt like such a privilege."


"I have purchased 2 Kantha Throws as wedding gifts and they have been incredible. The recipients are thrilled with the quality and beauty of the throws, and also touched that their wedding gift represents a miracle in the lives of many women."


"My friend said it was their favorite gift they received, hands down!"


Join hundreds of others who have given the "Best. Gift. Ever." as a wedding present (though, if you're thinking of sending one to Windsor Castle, maybe just hang on to that one for yourself 😉):

Shopping for Good Quality Clothes at Fast Fashion Prices: Tips & Tricks

January 21, 2022 6 min read 4 Comments

It feels so disappointing to me and, well, financially gross, when I’ve spent money on clothes that turn out to be a complete dud. The sweater that gets pilly and gnarly after a couple wearings; the jeans that distort as I wear them or rub down the knees in months.

Conversely, one of my great delights is enjoying clothes that are made well, fit nicely, and hold up because of good workmanship and materials.

But, here's the rub... good quality clothes, made from solid materials, constructed to last: they cost money!

Memorable Memoirs

December 17, 2021 6 min read 2 Comments


I love to read, and I love to read memoirs. There are loads of lists out there of great memoirs, and, well… this is another one.

Some titles will be familiar & common, though I’ve left out some faves that I’ve already mentioned (many times) before — Born A Crime, The Glass Castle, Bossypants — in favor of other titles [though, truth to tell, I have also mentioned some of these before.]

I hope that you can find something to read over the holidays! Happy Reading!

I've said before that while I advocate for shopping thoughtfully & being slow... I love gifts! Actual, tangible, pull-the-wrapping-off gifts.

We want to make the gifts that we give worth it. Worth the money, the materials, the effort... So, how to choose a thoughtful gift that will be meaningful to the recipient?
