Fantastic Bridesmaids Gifts

May 19, 2017

Pre-Wedding: "I first saw dignify on Pinterest and have kept coming back to it in my thoughts.  I am getting married in September and wanted to give meaningful gifts to my bridesmaids who have given so much of their time, effort, and MONEY on celebrating me!  (And what a silly thing to celebrate- a wedding- not the biggest accomplishment in my eyes! ;) ) Anyway, I love the idea behind the product and I have to say I am SO impressed with what I have been reading since joining the mailing list.  I love that your company wants to talk about sustainable gifts and spending money on quality products and not having that dreaded buyer's remorse!  I even love the way the emails/blogs are written- very easy to read and you can hear the passion behind every word. I'm so impressed and cannot wait to receive these blankets- I know my bridesmaids are going to adore them!" Post-Wedding: The wedding was perfect and my bridesmaids *LOVED* the blankets.  My sister even showed me she was using hers last night when...

My Kantha quilt arrived and I love it! Thank you so much!
