Gift Baskets for Out of Town Guests

Chances are you have guests traveling near and far to see you and your hubby-to-be tie the knot! So how do you let family and friends from out of town know how much you appreciate them celebrating your big day with you? Welcome Baskets are the perfect way to say thank you with a bit of personality!



One of our favorite Charleston vendors for welcome baskets and bridal party gifts is Seaside Gift Baskets. Whether you’re welcoming your guests to your wedding weekend or thanking your bridal party for being a part of your special day; they have gorgeous items for everyone!

Your bridesmaids would absolutely love a fun basket like this!



And this Charleston theme basket is just the thing to give guests who may not be familiar with the area!




There are so many great Charleston items to include in your welcome basket, these are a few of our favorite ideas!

As Charleston is one of the south's oldest and greatest cities (and who doesn’t love this fabulous city?!), why not give your friends and family a little piece of this southern town's oldest past times! Use baskets made of sweetgrass and make sure you include gorgeous sweetgrass roses, such as these.



A visitor’s guide, some yummy pralines, and of course an item decorated with our beautiful South Carolina Palmetto Tree, also make wonderful items to include in your guests welcome basket! And don’t forget a bottle of wine from Irvin-House Vineyards, Charleston’s only domestic winery!


These seashell coasters from Crate & Barrel would add a great coastal flair to a guest welcome basket!



Finally, send your guests home with the ability to bring some of that southern flavor into their kitchen at home. The Junior League of Charleston’s cookbooks include some of the finest and most exclusively southern recipes!! They are currently celebrating their 60th year in print and all the delicious recipes were contributed by Charleston natives throughout the years. Your guests will be sure to fall in love with our southern food while visiting local restaurants in Charleston, so why not send them home with some of the best of southern recipes!
