2. Custom Pet Silhouette

Additionally, a pet silhouette is totally on-trend, yet subtle enough to blend with any home décor. You have far more options than the typical basic black look normally associated with silhouettes. Look for a tone on tone silhouette art or custom silhouette letterpress art for a gorgeous spin on a classic.

Need a little more bling? When your friend or family member is a fan of glam, go for the gold. A gold foil custom pet silhouette print serves as the perfect attention-grabbing piece of wall art. No matter what style you choose, it’s a move they are sure to cherish.

3. Custom Pet Pillow

While you can never own too many throw pillows, you can have too many boring throw pillows. Bypass the basic, off-the-rack pillows in favor of a better gifting option: a custom pet pillow. Look to Minted for heaps of custom gifts, including pillow options sized 18-, 20-, or 24-inches.

While everyone is making their big fat Indian wedding dreams come true, they are also adding their carbon footprint and undue energy consumption. Modern couples are now looking for ways to have a wedding with a sustainably conscious mindset. It's become about incorporating less waste, locally sourced and seasonal food, natural materials over the use of plastic.

Include the work of local vendors ensure minimal packaging requirements, thus saving on unnecessary plastic and lamination. It also decreases the need for transporting elements from other cities and hence lowers the carbon footprint. For instance, at one of our weddings, we made use of sand art for a setup in Jodhpur. This helped promote local work while also being environmentally friendly with zero wastage of other materials. In another instance from Rajasthan, the traditional glass-blown technique was used to build decor items while giving a cultural touch to the destination wedding.
