For My Groom Journal: a Beautiful and Cherished Wedding Gift Option for Brides

June 20th, 2009

Let’s face it brides- there are a lot of really impersonal gifts out there for your wedding party. Engraved flasks just don’t cut it any more. Brides are looking for gifts that are unique and truly more personal.

What if you could give your groom a gift that is so personal, he’d be drawn to tears?

Lil’ Angel Gifts offers a gift that- with your help- is sure to make your groom cry. Their wonderful For My Groom Journal (a journal from the bride to her groom) is a sweet little relationship journal. It is comprised of suggested topics that you follow, filling in the pages with heartfelt feelings for your fiancée. It is beautiful, understated, and elegant. Even better- the reasonable price is affordable, even inexpensive as far as wedding gifts are considered.

my wonderful groom memory book

The For My Groom journal isn’t the only personal gift for your wedding party that Lil’ Angel Gifts can offer. They have a complete line of wedding relationship journals for everyone in your wedding party. From your bridesmaids and maid or matron of honor, to your best man, there is a memory book for everyone. They even offer journals for your flower girl and ring bearer, as well as a unique wedding guestbook alternative (Our Wedding Guest Journal).

If you’re looking for wedding gifts for your parents, you might want to consider the timeless For My Mother or For My Father relationship journals (also available in a combo photo/writing version). These journals can even be filled out by the groom for his parents. They also feature the popular For My Parents – on my wedding day journal. After receiving this thoughtful gift, your parents are sure to forgive you for all the anguish you caused them as a teenager.

So, maybe your mother really would like that embroidered hanky with her name on it. But, I’m guessing she’d appreciate it more if she needed it to wipe away the tears you made her cry from giving her the book filled out with your memories.

The great news is- after buying the For My Groom journal, wedding gifts for your parents, and maybe even a Wedding Guest Journal, you’ll still have the money left over for that hanky :)

Sometimes the best and most cherished gifts are the most simple…

    Press Release

    Iqaluit art dealer named eBay Entrepreneur of the Year

        Entrepreneurs in New Brunswick, Quebec and Ontario also recognized
        TORONTO, Oct. 8 /CNW/ - Iqaluit, Nunavut resident Bryan Hellwig has been
    crowned eBay Canada's 2008 Entrepreneur of the Year for using the power of the
    Internet to sell Inuit art globally. Taking home $5,000 to help grow his
    business, Mr. Hellwig was selected from entrants across Canada.
        From small towns to urban downtowns, the annual eBay Canada Entrepreneur
    of the Year awards program recognizes Canadians who run successful online
    businesses. For 2008, eBay introduced two new categories: Enviropreneur of the
    Year - for Canadians who adopt sustainable and environmentally-friendly
    practices when selling on eBay; and Mompreneur(*)of the Year - for Canadian
    parents who use eBay to balance their entrepreneurial instincts with family
    life. Canadians aged 18-24 contended for the Young Entrepreneur of the Year
    award. Each category winner receives $2,000 towards their business.
        This year's winners are as follows:
        -   eBay Canada's 2008 Entrepreneur of the Year - Bryan Hellwig from
            Iqaluit, Nunavut (eBay ID: ringseal)
        -   eBay Canada's 2008 Young Entrepreneur of the Year - Matt Oehmen, age
            23, from Ottawa, Ontario (eBay ID: honestredsrecords)
        -   eBay Canada's 2008 Enviropreneur of the Year - Marcello Biocchi
            Montreal, Quebec (eBay ID: cello10)
        -   eBay Canada's 2008 Mompreneur(*)of the Year - Jennifer Fiander from
            Hampton, New Brunswick (eBay ID: angelsmiles123)
        This was the fourth annual eBay Canada Entrepreneur of the Year
    competition. Entrants were asked to submit essays detailing their business
    philosophies and innovations, and describing significant business challenges
    they have faced and how they overcame them. Entrants considered for the
    Enviropreneur and Mompreneur(*)of the Year awards were also asked to submit a
    short essay describing how they adopted "green" practices or juggled business
    with family life while selling on eBay, respectively.
        "Canadian small businesses coast-to-coast have found a true business
    partner in eBay," says Andrew Sloss, Country Manager for eBay Canada. "eBay's
    awards program recognizes the ambitious and hardworking entrepreneurs who use
    the Internet to reach a world-wide customer base while pursuing their dreams
    right here at home."
        Winners of this year's program were chosen by a respected panel of
    industry experts and past winners including: Dr. Hadi Dowlatabadi, Professor
    at the Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability for the
    University of British Columbia; Kathryn Betchold, founder of the Mompreneur(*)
    Networking Group; and Jade Pearce, eBay business owner and recipient of eBay
    Canada's 2007 Young Entrepreneur of the Year award.
        The Winners - eBay Canada's Top Four Entrepreneurs of the Year
        After using eBay to purchase art for his personal collection, 2008
    Entrepreneur of the Year Bryan Hellwig decided to try his hand at selling
    Inuit and Northern art online. Mr. Hellwig now sells unique pieces around the
    world that represent the culture and people of the True North. A savvy
    entrepreneur, he has earned many repeat customers by offering small gifts and
    reducing shipping rates to ease the costs associated with mailing items from
    the Arctic.
        The Beatles' Abbey Road paved the way for Matt Oehmen's eBay business.
    After realizing that eBay buyers would pay upwards of $1,000 for the album,
    Mr. Oehmen began to catalog all the records in his collection. Since selling
    his first record on eBay, this Young Entrepreneur of the Year has grown his
    online business ten-fold and now offers rare records that many established
    bricks-and-mortar record stores do not carry.
        Enviropreneur of the Year winner Marcello Biocchi combined his love of
    sports and his dedication to the environment to create a successful online
    business reselling vintage sport jerseys. Mr. Biochhi believes that Canadians
    can recycle and look good doing it. His eBay store's slogan is: 'Threads so
    sweet, you'll forget you're recycling.' By selling vintage and collectable
    sports-related clothing, Mr. Biocchi diverts waste from Canadian landfills,
    and encourages sports fans to seek out and reuse clothing already
        After giving birth to a son with special needs, Mompreneur(*) of the Year
    winner Jennifer Fiander realized there was a lack of resources available for
    parents like her. Taking matters into her own hands, she created a book for
    her son's caregivers. Rave reviews prompted Ms. Fiander to follow up with a
    second guide and post it for sale on eBay. After watching bids on eBay climb
    higher and higher, she knew she was on to something big. Today, selling on
    eBay gives Ms. Fiander the freedom and flexibility to work from home. She has
    the time to take her son to doctor's appointments and therapy, as well as
    provide her daughters with a great example of how they can be a working but
    present mother while following their dreams.
