You have a situation...you not only have to buy a wedding gift but you have been invited to the bridal shower and bachelorette party. Ohh what to do, what to do...here is an idea from me to you that won't break the bank. Theme them all together. Lets do a cooking/kitchen theme this time.
1. the bridal shower. Pick one item for actual cooking. It could be a frying pan, colander, cookie sheet or cooking utensils. Pick YOUR favorite recipe. Copy recipe onto a card or print off the computer. allrecipes.com is a good site if you don't have a favorite at home. Put a personal note on the recipe and the date so the happy couple will remember you every time they make that dish. Now we are going to make a basket/bundle. Put your recipe, the cooking instrument and all the non perishable ingredients to make the recipe in a basket, pretty bag, in the colander, pan or pot.
Super affordable and adorable.
2. the bachelorette party...this is usually small and fun. Take a wine glass, either plain with a hand tied ribbon around the stem or a funny personalized glass and add liquor flavored chocolates. Find chocolates locally or on amazon.com.
3. the wedding gift...his and her personalized aprons, a dish towel with the new couples name, like The Smith's, and an empty recipe holder so they can build their kitchen together.
Hope this helps and watch for more wedding gift tips for the next several weeks. If you have any questions call me or email me.
