Christy Bishop of Park City-based Lemongrass & Co. masters the art of bridal gift-giving.
Do yourself a favor and avoid gift-giving anxiety. Did I spend enough? Will she like it? Will I offend her? How can I ever repay her for all she’s done? Amidst the tornado of wedding planning, it’s easy to be stumped for gift ideas, but Christy Bishop of Lemongrass & Co. shows how to perfect the craft by using careful planning, developing thoughtful themes and executing hands-on details.
“My gifts are completely custom-designed for my clients. I craft them based on their personal preferences and color palettes,” says Bishop. She curates boutique products—like trendy jewelry, ring dishes and body oils—and artfully arranges collections inside artisanal boxes or baskets. To finish off the presentation, Bishop can add fresh blooms and calligraphy-embellished tags, “Quality and detail are essential with each gift,” Bishop says.
