I think I’ve said this before on this blog but it makes me laugh so it bears repeating. When Sam and I were married we received six waffle irons as gifts. Six! And they were all the exact same one. Waffle party at our house!
So it is true that there may be some standard gifts that people always give at receptions. Pots and pans, towels, mixing bowls, etc. But there is a reason those are standard…they’re useful and everyone needs them! The trick to making your gift memorable is simply packaging it up in a cute and creative way.
Here is one way to jazz up a gift- I put together some whisks and spoons in a mason jar and tied a cute ribbon around the jar. Add in some cookbooks and mixing bowls and you have a gift that is not only useful, but just different enough to be memorable.
Of course, what really pulls it all together is a gift tag with a slightly cheesy pun!
As you can see I made two different tags so that one will work with a blender as well. And you can definitely pair either one with a nice mixer like a Kitchen Aid or a Bosch. That would be a great wedding gift for sure!
