50 Creative Ideas to take Wedding Gifts to the Next Level

Wedding season is definitely in full swing around here. I am a big fan of buying wedding gifts off of registries…mainly because of the gifts we got for our wedding. We did get many wonderful things…don’t get me wrong.  But we also got SIXTEEN CRYSTAL BOWLS. SIXTEEN. They were gorgeous, really lovely. But we were newlyweds just starting our own home and we didn’t even have measuring cups! So when I’m invited to a wedding I check the registry and buy something the couple really needs. However, I like to add a little something to make it more special. It doesn’t always have to cost a lot of money, but it can add a personal touch   These gifts also work great for bridal showers.

I love all your gift lists but this one is so so fun! I especially love that first toaster one, what a unique and fun gift. I think I might use it for a friend getting married later this summer!
