Wedding Gifts

I was given an extremely awesome opportunity to review some products from Uncommon Goods.

They originally contacted me to review a product for a Mother’s Day post.  There are plenty of Mother’s Day Gifts to choose from too! I am extremely close with my mom.  My mom planned  95% of the wedding and without her it would not have been as successful.

I was browsing Uncommon Goods and found a lot of cute things I loved.  It’s a very cute, interesting and unique website and I immediately found a lot of gifts I liked for both family and friends.

However, something struck me as a great wedding gift.  Before they contacted me, I was struggling with finding appropriate wedding gifts.  I’m extremely close with my parents but we aren’t the sentimental, emotional type of family.  We are the funny and gag gift type of family.  It always makes birthdays, anniversaries and Christmas extremely difficult.

One of the hardest parts of the wedding was trying to figure out what I wanted to give my parents.  An emotional wedding gift would feel forced and not the tone of our family.

 I love the “What I Love About You Series”.  I choose these to use these as part of a wedding gift set for both my parents and the groom. 

In a way, the books remind me of sentimental mad lips.  You fill in the blanks of various and sentimental topics.  For example a line in the book is: I love the way you ________ or I love that you love _________.

You can be as funny or as serious as you want.  Obviously my blog is titled “Fueledbylolz” and I get my sense of humor from my parents…so you can see where mine personal books went.

My family can share the humor together…another person can make them very emotional and heart felt.  They are very personal and you can fill them out for your personal needs.  Each book is filled with 50 pages to fill out.  I think it’s the perfect length without feeling overbearing or tired.  I would 100% recommend them to anyone.

what I love about you books

I really like a lot of their products and have since gone to buy a few more items.  Thank you Uncommon Goods for reaching out and contacting me.  There are quite a few products I like for my friends and family (as well as myself…like this scarf).

Question for you: Are you close with your parents?

  1. My sister gave me one of those little books but it’s called something like, “Why You Are Awesome” and then she filled out all the blanks in the book detailing why I’m awesome. I keep it in my bedside table so whenever I feel shitty about myself, I’ll read it and feel better.

  2. I’m not very close with my family these days even if I would love to be right now. BUT, I get ALL of my brother’s gifts from Uncommon Goods and another similar store (I forget the name right meow). Usually, I get them one nice serious(ish) gift and a couple little funnier/nerd ones. I love this site so much!

  3. What cool gifts! I’d kind of love to make one for each of my kids, And I’m close with my parents but they are both in increasingly bad health and it’s sad to see.

  4. I actually really love the idea of books like that… I might have to look into them for Mother’s and Father’s day. And I’m definitely close with my parents. I think it has something to do with the fact that it’s only the 3 of us here since all our other family lives in Poland.

    Enjoy your weekend, Hollie!

  5. I’m not close with my parents. I think of them as more friends now that I’m older. I do freelance work for my mom, so it’s actually more of a business relationship. We love each other, but are not dependent on each other at all. I like the books though. I could see getting them for my significant other. Like Mad Libs for adults.
