Wedding season is upon us! Time for celebrating everlasting relationships with friends and family. Time for beautiful, bountiful bouquets, matching dresses and tuxes and melt-in-your-mouth cakes. And don’t forget the presents! Whether you are a family member, part of the wedding party, or simply going as a guest, there are ample opportunities for gift-giving during wedding season. Here at Lotus Blooms, we encourage you to think a little outside the box and give your soon-to-be or newlyweds something that won’t blend in amongst the towers of appliances and home decorating pieces.
Married couples will tell you that the nontraditional presents from the heart were the ones they remembered most. While most people would never dream of giving a gag-gift as a wedding present, many a people stop by our store looking for a funny novelty to either give during bachelorette parties or to embarrass the bride in front of grandma at the wedding showers. We say, skip the blushing and let our staff help you find something that will be put to good use! Here are Lotus Blooms’ takes on giving wedding gifts that include quality time, a bit of adventure, and the always-welcomed indulgence of relaxation.
Give the Gift of Concierge- A Day Out
Your friend is bound to be overwhelmed from planning their big day. Take them out for a carefree day in Old Town to take a break from the logistics, and while you’re out- let them pick their own gift! Picture this- idly strolling along the water, taste-testing the many delicious ice creams and gelatos, and providing them an outlet to vent the frustrations of wedding dramas. Then, pop into Lotus Blooms and let the sex educator trained sales associates help your friend find something that suits their desires! Everyone needs *that* friend to give them permission to be adventurous and this way, you won’t have to do the impossible job of guessing proclivities. At the very least, you’ll have some great conversations, learn a little about lube, and have a wonderful memory to share. If they’re too shy to buy in front of you gift cards are always an option!
Provide the Party- An Evening of Adventure
If your soon-to-be wedded friend already has everything they could ever need for their home and kitchen, think about giving the gift of an evening with friends sipping, shopping, learning and laughing! Lotus Blooms would be honored to host a Private Party workshop for you all. Invite one of our esteemed sex educators to the location of your choice- a host’s house, hotel, or even our shop, and enjoy an experience that is tasteful, fun, and educational! While you sip on wine and nibble on snacks, let us enlighten you as we explore tips and tricks, techniques and more! We’ll delve into the topic of your choice ranging from sweet and sensual, to playful and beyond. Of course, there’s no reason you can’t also shop for yourselves in addition to helping the guest of honor pick out their ideal party gift. Think of it as a fun alternative to a standard wedding shower- a fun and intimate night out in a luxurious setting. A still-decadent but less wild alternative to a booze-soaked bachelorette party. Or, just use it as a warm-up to your libatious last fling before the ring night out-on-the-town!
Gift the Touch of Romance and Relaxation – A Night In
Weddings are stressful! Once the sparklers are out, the tin cans have rattled away, and the guests’ cabs have been called, the newlyweds finally get a chance to breathe a sigh of relief and just be. Give them a gift they could really use on their wedding night… edible massage candles that melt down into a warm, enveloping liquid meant to be poured over the body and used as massage oil, leaving the calming scents of aromatherapy or sweet chocolate, raspberry, or vanilla lingering in the air. Made with ingredients so pure, they are lick-able! Pair it with kissable body dust, a feather tickler, satin eye mask, and you’ve given your friend the makings of a perfect ending to the perfect big day!
If we haven’t convinced you to dare outside the box, or your friends are the type to revel in the beautiful traditions of weddings, be sure to browse our gorgeous collection of soft and sexy, flirty and lacy, lingerie for that perfect outfit for the wedding night. We have sizes and styles to fit all body types!
Whichever your style, we look forward to seeing you soon!
