One action item that needs to be addressed early in your wedding planning timeline is your bridal registry. Sure, you could go with the usual dinner plates, towels and wine glasses; but if you already have those, why not try something out of the ordinary? During a recent trip to Portland, I had the opportunity to visit Canoe and was delighted with all it had to offer.
Beautiful, useful and enduring – every item in this unusual gift store meets this standard. The challenge was clear and bold: “How many things have you purchased this year that will become valued possessions? How many things will you soon discard?” Specializing in gifts to get or give, Canoe carries an impressive array of products, such as Heath Ceramics, Stelton, Noguchi Akari Lighting and many others. With a fully integrated online bridal registry, this store is an excellent alternative to the traditional gift registry. One of my favorites – wool felt coasters in just about every color.
If you are looking to register for traditional items such as bottle openers, vases and serving trays, Canoe still has you covered! In addition to their unusual gifts, they offer traditional items, but in wonderfully unique styles and designs. Whether you visit Canoe to give or receive, you will enjoy the process of matching items to reflect your personality and style.
