Charitable Gift Giving

Bonfolk offers groomsmen style and philanthropy

When gift giving for a wedding, it’s customary for the bride and groom to gift their maids and men a token of appreciation for standing next to them on their Big Day.

Bridesmaids are often gifted monogrammed robes to get ready in or even jewelry to wear, but it can be difficult to find the right gift for the groomsmen. The good news is, New Orleans is filled with talented artists and business owners who create items perfect for any occasion, like a pair of socks from local company Bonfolk. Socks may not sound exciting, but vibrant colors and New Orleans-centric patterns make a potentially lackluster gift chic and on-trend.

Patterns like snowball, gator and magnolia make it easy to personalize, while the company’s philanthropic efforts add extra meaning to the gift.

According to the company’s website, Bonfolk stands for  “Good Folks,” or good people. The mission is to help solve the common problem faced by groups who work with the homeless — the lack of socks. Socks are the most requested and least donated item of clothing. Bonfolk donates socks for every purchased pair. They have specifically engineered a sock with the needs of homeless men and women in mind – providing warmth and disease prevention.

Each time you give the gift of socks and style to a groomsmen, or maybe father of the bride or groom, you are also giving back to those in need in the community.

 

Bonfolk is available at many retailers – like Fleurty Girl, Dirty Coast and Tooth & Nail Trading Co. – around the city or online here
