When you’re looking for an off-the-registry gift for your favorite soon-to-be-married couple, personalization is always the way to go. That’s what our new favorite startup Honey & Hive Creations sets out to do. The company is thinking past the wedding registry and helping people create collaborative custom cookbooks that will last a lifetime.

Not only are their custom cookbooks beautifully bound with cool fonts and personalized photo pages, but they’re also easy to create with friends or family. Each custom cookbook is $200 and allows you to collaborate with up to 55 contributors! Plus, Honey & Hive Creations actually does the project management for the group. For instance, a MOH wants a unique gift from the whole wedding party to send to the happy couple. She gives Honey & Hive a list of emails and they automate the rest. The company reaches out to said wedding party and has them each fill out a submission form for the recipes. Then the MOH designs the book with one of their lovely templates and has it shipped to the newlyweds. The personalized cookbooks take about six weeks to make from start to book-in-hand.

“I truly believe people want more meaningful gifts in their home, and that’s exactly what we’re hoping to create,” says owner Rachel Bush. And create they did. We can’t wait to gift one for our next wedding.
