Match Game

I'm about to divulge the greatest gift idea.  It's always gotten rave reviews.  It's personal yet funky.  And it's an idea I freely admit I ripped off from an ancient Domino magazine issue.

It's personalized matches.  Now, I know what you're thinking: "Ewww... nasty weddingesque favors."  But trust me, it doesn't have to be that way. lets you design your own matches, from the size and type of box to colors, fonts, and print content.  It's surprisingly easy to do.  And it's so easy to "match" the style up with your giftee.  There's just one caveat: don't do a straight, conservative match box.  Mix up colors for a funky combination.  Pick a great font.  And keep the content offbeat (like, instead of giving an address, put just the apartment number, or just the city).  

This is an ideal hostess present for a weekend invite, or as a New Year's Eve bash extra.  Check out for all your options.  And match them up with the gift of light for the coming year.
