One-size-fits-all wedding-party gifts seem a bit contrived, and yet tracking down the perfect gift for each attendant is a battle few can win. So what about equal gifts, individualized for each bridesmaid or groomsman? Enter new San Francisco-based company Chic by Design. The carefully curated gifts are organized by distinct collections (Modern Cool, Out of Africa, La Vie En Rose, and A Country Affair) so it's easy to narrow down your gift selection depending on each recipient's personality. (A trio of ceramic vases for your home design-obsessed best friend; a sleek coffee pot for his always-caffeinated pal.) In addition to free (gorgeous) gift-wrapping, the company will also include a personalized hand calligraphed gift note with each purchase. And in the next six months, Chic by Design will be adding four new collections and a gift registry function to the website. Head to to check out the entire collection. —Lauren Matthews, editor, Brides Northern California
