Colorful clips

Favors & Gifts, Flowers

Courtesy of The Rare Orchid

I always love it when a couple adds a unique or personal element to their celebration, and these handmade clip magnets are a great way to add that extra special touch to your wedding. You can use them to hold your place cards or hang up decorations; you could even hand them out as favors! Created by Hawaiian stationary company The Rare Orchid, the painted clothespins ($5.99 for a set of four) are inset with natural magnets and finished with Japanese paper. They come in a kaleidoscope of beautiful colors, but my favorite is this floral pink-and-white design. Owner Meredith Lee, who holds four degrees from UCLA, says that she often has a hard time explaining why she sells clothespins for a living, but these beautiful designs have me convinced she's putting her knowledge to good use! —Kathryn Papanek
