Weddings are a whole lot of work. Maybe you’ve planned one. Or maybe you’ve been witness to the planning of one. No matter what, you can sympathize with friends who have had to reschedule their wedding since the coronavirus hit. Simply put, it’s a bummer. 

That’s why we’re here to help. We know you’ll be there when their day finally comes, but a thoughtful gift to lift their spirits can go a long way. So we rounded up some things that’ll say ‘we support you.’

Something that’ll remind them the best is yet to come…
InLine Succulent Box
Motivational Gift Box
$26.97, Succulent Kreations Co., Etsy

Sometimes the best thing you can do is show you’re thinking of them. This box comes with a succulent, candle, matches, and personalized message. Hugs (unfortunately) not included.
