If they have a wedding invitation. I usually buy a nice frame and frame the wedding invitation. I leave room if available in the frame or buy a matching frame for the wedding picture.

It is an unusual gift that is appreciated.

Wedding gift ideas

If the couple has a yard or garden, a gardening basket with plants, etc would be nice. You could also enlist the help of your family and make a family cookbook filled with all the families favorites, have each member include special memories about the recipe...a GREAT keepsake as well.
Another family idea is a calendar with all the family birthdays, anniversaries already filled in. Along the basket type theme, how about a cozy throw blanket, some mugs and bowls, microwave popcorn, and a gift card to alocal video store. Hope some of these ideas help! Deb

Type all your best recipes and personal notes about the recipes on the computer (like how many servings, how it freezes etc.) - print them out and have them photocopies and bound on nice lightweight lightcolored cardstock with a cover laminated - you can get this done at a Staples or similar stationary store for very little $$ and it is very personal and will be well used.
The cover you can title as (eg.) 10 years of trial and error by ________....Recipes from my kitchen to yours. And then you can put some personal information on the bottom right - their name and wedding date etc. Hope this is a help. By the way - KEEP your recipes in your Word program - you will want to use it again!

I liked the basket of canned food and goodies that we received. They were more personal. One friend knew that we had a long drive ahead of us and packed us a beautiful roadside meal and presented it to us at breakfast. We didn't have to stop except for pee breaks. Men like that!:p

Another idea along the basket line is but a cooler and fill it with summer camping/picnic items.

If I don't know what to get for a couple I usually just get them a nice picture frame, preferably a wedding-themed one. If you look around you can get an elegant one for $10 or under and you can never have too many picture frames!

i used to shop at this place where they sold various glass items and they engraved for free. i bought a set for a good price - 2 wine glasses and an ice bucket. the glasses had their names on it and the bucket had The ****'s, and the wedding date.

What a great idea with the wedding invitation, I certainly will have to keep that in mind when needing a gift, as it is so unique.

I remarried last fall ( both of us were widow/widower) and one of the nicest gifts we received was a scrapbook of my family, tracing a lot of the pictures /info back to the early 1900's.

Wedding Gift

I think you have up till one year to send a wedding gift. Can you knit an afghan or make a quilt? Could you crossstitch a picture with their names and the date of the wedding? How about taking some pictures at the wedding and framing one? Thoughtful gifts from the heart are so special.
