Creative Wedding Gifts: Custom PIllows

Creative Wedding Gifts vs Traditional Wedding Gifts

Unique and creative wedding gifts — such as custom pillows — can be more far meaningful and lasting than traditional wedding gifts. At Reminkie, we don’t simply create memory bears. We also design custom pillows, custom blankets and throws, and keepsake quilts. In fact, we receive many requests for custom pillows as creative wedding gifts.

Shown in the photo to the right is one of our custom pillows made from a woman’s beautiful wedding dress. Here is the woman’s response to receiving the custom pillow — made from her very own wedding dress: “What an amazing keepsake of our wedding! I’m reminded of our special day every time I see this beautiful pillow on our bed. I love it, especially the button details.”

Traditional Wedding Gifts

 

Traditionally, couples have received kitchen and bath items as wedding gifts.

Top 10 Traditional Wedding Gifts

  1. Silverware Sets
  2. Serving Platters
  3. Monogrammed His and Her Bath Towels

  5. Decorative Throws
  6. Wine Glasses

Traditional wedding gifts, which are designed to prepare a couple for a domestic life together, used to make perfect gifts for newly married couples. However, nowadays with so many couples living together before marriage, traditional wedding gifts are often redundant and discarded. This is why so many search for creative wedding gifts today.

Creative Wedding Gifts

New Product for Horse Lovers! Custom Pillows made from Horse Blankets

At ReMinkie Memory Bears, we’re excited to announce a new product especially designed for horse-lovers.

Recently, Rita Glosser was approached by a lifelong equestrian who was grieving over the loss of her beloved horse. She asked Rita if ReMinkie could make custom pillows out of her old horse blankets in memory of the horse who passed away. Rita’s answer was a resounding “Yes.”

Following the tremendous success of her first horse-blanket pillows, Rita is now expanding her product line. ReMinkie’s custom pillows made from horse blankets are the perfect way to honor and memorialize your horse. They also make great gifts for the equestrians and horse-lovers in your life.

Rita Glosser of ReMinkie is a pro at creating timeless and treasured keepsakes in memory and honor of loved ones. For over 20 years, she has been making memory bears of the highest quality. From there, she has expanded to designing custom pillows, custom blankets, keepsake quilts, custom scarves and more. She transforms sentimental fur, fabric, neckties and more into keepsakes that last a lifetime. She has created memory bears and more in honor of mothers, fathers, grandparents, brothers, sisters, children, friends… and now horses.

Rita is very pleased that her horse-blanket pillows may comfort equestrians in times of loss, and help them to commemorate their beautiful and beloved horses.
