    @Apple_Blossom:  I don’t get the reference, but if she would, go for it.

    I would either do a check for $100 or spend about $100.

    I think it’s pretty funny, though I don’t know about the etiquette of it? If I was going to go that route, I would make sure that the couple would know the reference, and just go all out; buy them a few towels, if they’re on their registry, get the book, and put the cheque as a bookmark on a great passage.

    But I’m a giant nerd, so. 😛

     I just googled it. I never had any interest in Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. It seems to me that those I knew who had read it/seen it were ENORMOUSLY into it, so I can see it going over well if she is one of those types.

    If she like Douglas Adams, I think it’d be awesome.  Write on the on the subject line, “The answer to life, the universe, and everything” just to make sure it gets across.

    If it’s a reference she would get, I’d do it. Just to be extra sure, I’d add a little note in the memo something like “so you’ll always have the answer to everything” or something written way better than that haha

    @Apple_Blossom:  I LOVE IT

    I would have DIED with joy if someone had given us our fancy wine stuff, and a check for $42 with a note in the memo that said “May you be happy in your marriage, and find the question to life, the universe, and everything”

    Although, I am a nerd I am not well versed in that book. That said, it sounds clever and fun for a couple that would ‘get’ it. Honestly, my friends are all understanding of eachothers financial situation(s) and would never judge anyone for not giving a set amount. I frankly wouldn’t want to be friends with someone that judgemental.

    You know the couple better than any of us! I didn’t get the reference either, but I think it’s a clever idea if you know that they would get it! I like that it’s a little more personal!!
