Looking for some tennis team party gifts? Maybe something for your team captain?

Wristpect Sport wristband pack used as wine bottle adornment for tennis hostess gift

(Bottle of Erath Pinot Noir paired with Wristpect Sport Wristbands)

Check out this WONDERFUL holiday hostess gift idea from our friends at the City of Palm Beach Gardens Tennis Center! 

A Bottle of Wine with a Pack of Wristpect Sport Wristbands tied with rafia ribbon and a cute little red ornament!

Now that's being creative and festive! Think of the functionality you will be gifting: the function of a 2-ply wristband that both wicks AND absorbs sweat AND a good red (or white) wine that your hostess could pop open on the spot or pair with a forthcoming meal she is planning for holidays!

The double wristband pack pops nicely off the bottle and is offset colorfully by the rafia tie. Now, take a look at our impromptu version of our SINGLE wristband pack tied to one of our favorites, Belle Glos Clark & Telephone Pinot Noir:

Being Present with a Present (The Art of Gift Giving)

This time of year much revolves around presents, gifts and giving. My mother is the one who taught me the art of gift giving.

The art of it, the secret of it, is to always work from the heart. From family to friends to a stranger, you have to be vulnerable enough and clever enough to show the recipient you understand their life, their likes, and that which moves them. You must really be present when selecting the present.

 My mom’s Christmas presents always bear these special touches:

  • Wrapped immaculately. The bows are pristine and the reds and greens of the season are always the most festive. Hers are down right magical!
Christmas Present
  • Penmanship on the tiny card should always show precision and care. Be proud to pen your name on that which you give another.
  • One need not spend a ton of time finding the gift but my mom does. How do I know this? Because we both suffer from that ‘syndrome’ called, ‘I-might-find-something-better-itis.’ We don’t buy the first thing we see but often do end up circling back to the first store. Annoying--- almost agitating, but very satisfying!
  • Give the gift ON THE DAY of the event. Not late. It is so moving when timed perfectly.
My mom’s a tennis player too. In fact, she’s the one who got me interested in the game so naturally, she knows a bit about Wristpect Sport.

We talked recently and without any intent to sway you, the reader, you should know mom did say our wristband packaging-- with festive wristbands nettled within--exudes quality. Of course I'm being slightly bias here but I find it is my duty to share a mothers wisdom; because you know, mom's are always right! 

Mom specifically likes the size and feel of our signature retro paper envelope in her hands. She finds its neutral color ideal for adding a tri-blend of brightly colored curly ribbon (another thing she’s a pro at and which I am NOT!). And though it made her shudder, she noted, for 'those non-wrappers, your wristbands are ideal ‘peeking’ out of a stocking.'

 

Finally she made sure to choose these words carefully so as not to offend me when she stated:

 ‘…Your products are not expensive but they translate to quality and are perfect for friends, neighbors…you could feel good about giving them...’

As she was saying this, my mind had a quick-vision of mom going door to door giving wristbands to the neighbors in her retirement community; regardless of whether those neighbors play, or like sports!

As I close on today’s thoughts, I realize my mom has shown me HOW to give a tangible gift but in doing so, showed me others are really the true gifts. Thank you Mom!

We celebrate you, your sport and your sense of style so why not celebrate your parties too?! O.k., we'll admit not everyone thinks of sweat accessories for birthday gifts but many of us WILL sweat it as we scramble and search for that last minute gift that rings useful, clever and will make us the 'hit' of the party.

Our wristband designs are so colorful and packaged so tastefully they're walking Martha Stewart adorned tokens, worthy of any party!

Tie a little curly ribbon around them, write 'you've got game!' on a greeting card and stand back; the birthday gal, chick, guy or teammate will forever be changed when they sweat in fashion at their next game, match, workout, or run!

  • Teammate birthday party gifts
  • Doubles partner gifts
  • Team parties (try these decorating ideas for your party here: Women's Tennis World 
  •  Kids birthday parties…kids LOVE 'bracelets' and our wristbands have been deemed the 'bracelets for sweat!' Use as a the main gift for the birthday boy/girl, or in goodie bags for the party attendees.

Happy Birthday, happy sweating and we hope all your wishes come true in sport and life!

 

 

 

Inspiring Change in Sport Fashion

 

Wristpect Sport objects of inspiration

Odd things strike us at odd times—that’s the essence of creativity.

Why explore sweat management? And, where does Wristpect Sport! get inspiration to change and reinvent the design of the wristband?

Everywhere! A purple leather bound journal was our muse that first captured the idea for cool fashionable wristbands. From there we found colors, texture and pattern inspiration in: jewelry, watches, leaves and socks. In fact a $.89 fabric book cover was used in our first ever wristband prototype so we could get the construction right.

What or who makes you put pen to paper, crayon to wall or fingers to paint? We find peace in hard work, sweat and all things that inspire!
