Best Place to Get Gifts for Your Wedding Party: Good Relations

Used to be if you were chosen to stand up for a loved one at their wedding, your thanks for attending multiple fittings for the pricey matching outfit you are never wearing again was a great party, a grateful newlywed and maybe an engraved flask or silver frame. But unless folks overwhelmingly misunderstood the category title as shower/bachelor/bachelorette party gifts for the people getting married, for which Good Relations is a solid standard, being in a Humboldt wedding is hot stuff.

Maybe it's not a misunderstanding — maybe the corsage and boutonniere crowd really does toddle off after a night of chicken dancing and cake with a goodie bag full of good vibes. Apart from the back corner's accoutrements, the place is packed with lingerie and slinky things for all genders in a range of sizes to shame the internet. It even has playful and sparkly masks of both the COVID and kinky variety. Actually, given that Good Relations has also once again won the Best Hobby Shop and done a brisk business during lockdown, maybe you readers just know how to have a good time.
