A Soft Touch

Doesn’t a painstakingly selected ring deserve a box to match? The Mrs. Box, pictured above, creates handmade options in luscious velvet that are worthy companions for engagement rings (or any other ring, for that matter). They’re available in a rainbow of 26 hues, from regal red to powder blue and always-elegant black. Each box can be personalized with a monogrammed initial in one of three different scripts. themrsbox.com

MSRP: from $75


Permanent Petals

Flowers and weddings are always intertwined. Individually crafted paper blossoms by Handmade by Sara Kim will be mementos long after the ceremony ends. Every blossom includes a ribbon-tied label for a personalized message, which makes them pretty and functional, whether as thank-you gifts for friends and family or decorative flourishes during the festivities. handmadebysarakim.com

MSRP: $13

Sock It To Him

Just in case a jittery groom needs last minute advice on what to do when he gets to the altar, Lillian Rose offers a helpful reminder that can be worn down the aisle. A pair of dress socks that reads “Keep Calm and say ‘I Do’” riffs on a classic British motto and will be playful fodder for at least a few photos at a wedding or bachelor party. lillianrose.com

MSRP: $12.25


A Little Leg

Brides and their attendants share an obvious emotional bond, and the Besties Wedding Garter set from The Garter Girl unites them with an undercover accessory. A set of six handmade ivory grosgrain garters with ombré accent ribbons includes one for the bride, plus five for her bridesmaids — each in a distinct shade. And bridezillas can rest easy: The set may be produced in colors that coordinate with any wedding’s palette. thegartergirl.com

MSRP: $322

Clean Sweep

Jewelry quickly loses its glow without regular care. The Sparkle + Shine Stick from The Kingswood Company, a portable jewelry cleaner with options for private label customization, restores pieces to their original luster with a formula that’s safe for diamonds, pearls and fashion jewelry. With its TSA-approved size, newlyweds can bring one along on the honeymoon to keep their bands glowing. thekingswoodcompany.com

Price: from $1.95
