Summer is officially here and at Well + Wonder we’ve always called this the Season of Accomplishments and Celebrations - pre-pandemic our calendars are typically filled with graduation parties, weddings, baby and bridal showers and summer house party weekends. And while our calendar is essentially canceled we plan to still celebrate the brides and the graduates, the anniversaries and the birthdays, maybe even more so.  We know first hand that choosing a thoughtful gift for that recent grad or newlywed will love and cherish is stressful. So, if you are shopping for a present that’s slightly more personal, and memorable, than a toaster, steak knife, or monogrammed towel we hope you enjoy some of these thoughtful “off-the-registry” gift ideas.

"Quench III" by Amanda Norman.  Every new bride needs something new, and something blue!

Kristin Endsley's "A Proper Match". We love a "just because" gift and this riff on the classic court would be perfect for that tennis partner you've been missing playing.

"Texas Cone Flower" by Paige Smythe would be the sweetest hanging in a nursery. The perfect gift for any new mom or mom to be! 


And for all those grads who've had a seriously subpar spring...nothing cheers up a cinderblock dorm room wall or ugly beige apartment like a little art. Caroline Chriss's "Chasing Sunsets" and "Hazelwood Dr." by Christy King are sure to make any grad smile.
