What was the best wedding gift you received or gave? I am looking for new ideas other than money or off the registry.
We didn't register for gifts and received primarily monetary gifts, but a friend did ask my sister what color was one of our bathrooms. She made us a gift basket that contained a a Ralph Lauren Towel Set that had our initials monogrammed on them, a large candle with a beautiful holder that said "love", a picture frame with our name and wedding date on it, hand soap and lotion and an assortment of soaps that all matched our bathroom. I loved it so much because I am a sucker for anything with our name or initials on it and I appreciated that it coordinated with our bathroom. Very thoughtful gift!
Oh and another friend that couldn't make it to the wedding had a throw done that read Congratulations Tressy and Cale on your wedding day, June 30, 2012. We have it in our den.
Far and away my favorite gift was a beautiful glass piece that had room for a picture on one side and had an etching of our wedding invitation on the other side! The design was really catching to me, it was a rectangle that was curved into a crescent shape so it stood on it's own, much different than any other picture frames I have.
I'm totally blanking on things right now~but do they drink at all? Maybe a gift basket of their favorite liquors to stock the bar?
I love my keurig coffee maker, my customized mugs that have mine and hubbys name on them! I love getting personalized items because I feel like the person is actually putting a great effort in picking out our gift, instead of just picking things off our regristry.
I loved all our gifts. It would really be difficult for me to decide on which one I loved the most.
oh, we recieved so many wonderful things! I loved EVERYTHING, but those who bought us gift cards because they knew we were moving soon were well recieved. I was able to not have to move as much, and get things based on our new place! :) I was very happy to recieve gifts off our registry, too. I got my whole set of piggy themed kitchen accesories! woohoo!
