    I think that a heartfelt thank you card would be a wonderful gift for a dear friend.

    My officiant is actually my cousin, so I went with a more personal gift.  We’re giving him an engraved flask.

    I made all the gifts for my wedding (pottery student) but I think any heartfelt gift would be much appreciated.  I think a gift card would be totally appropriate for a friend doing you guys such a big and meaningful favor.  Maybe $50 at his favorite restaurant?  Or store?  Or a handmade item he would like?  A case of microbrews?  He’s probably not really expecting anything is this is not a regular thing for him, so we would probably appreciate whatever you have to give.  Hope that helps!

    We also have a friend getting ordained to be our officiant.  Since she’s so close, we’re looking for something personal.  She’s really into Harry Potter so we’ve been keeping an eye out for something along that theme and she’s in to fashion so we might get her a gift card to her favorite clothing store.  I’ve been keeping an eye out on her FB to see if she posts something she wants as well.  And she’s just graduating college so we might get her a lunch box for work and fill it with something.  You get the idea…
