Curtsy Bella - funky boutique for unique gifts

Curtsy Bella is a hidden gem that I have been meaning to feature on my blog for a while. Owned by stylish mother and daughter duo Mary Jo Thomas and Danielle Thomas, Curtsy Bella is a boutique located behind University Village with fabulous gifts for weddings, showers, babies, birthdays and entertaining...

A few months ago one of my best friends became engaged and I went straight to Curtsy Bella to find the perfect gift to congratulate her with. She is planning a destination wedding so I bought a Wedding Day Survival Kit (pictured above) with 30 must have items such as a mending kit, stain remover, super glue and extra wedding bands. Plus how cute is the diamond on top! Normally I have my giant suitcase of items on hand but when flying in for the wedding this kit will come in handy. Not only was the gift a success but it was beautifully wrapped free of charge.

I am excited that Curtsy Bella just added the Mindy Weiss wedding collection by Two's Company. For those of you that don't know, Mindy Weiss is a well known and sought after celebrity wedding and event planner in Los Angeles. Her collection has goodies for initial planning to your honeymoon! Below are some of my favorites products...

Make sure to stop into Curtsy Bella when you are in need of a fun and unique gift! You can also keep up to date on new products by visiting their blog, Adventures in Curtsyland, which you can link to from their website.

  1. I love it - what a great gift - and i love the design and colors!
    I also have a great gift idea for the bridal party....
    the friendship stone…. the PERFECT GIFT for WEDDING FAVORS, BRIDESMAIDS or GROOMSMEN!

    the friendship stone (http://www.thefriendshipstone.com ) lets your BFF know you care; you love them and appreciate them standing up for you at the most important day of your life - your wedding! Pssssst, “Guess what?” This is also a great gift to exchange with your FIANCÉ! When you’re apart, you’ll both have something beautiful to remind you of each other. 

    the friendship stone is also a give back gift giving 10% of profits back to the community in South Africa from where this beautiful Tiger's Eye stone comes. Somehow knowing that your purchase is not only going to be meaningful to your friends, but also to a whole community of people that really need it, makes the GIVING that much sweeter!Take a look at it! I think you will like it!

  2. The Survival Kit looks like it'd be a great investment so that we're always prepared for last-minute mishaps. I think we might just need to pick one up! ~Airika
