I personally would love a gift like that, but I know there are others who wouldn’t.  So, from my point of view I think that is a very thoughtful and nice gift. 

This is my “go-to-site” for shower or wedding gifts that are personalized for a great price.  If you do end up looking for something else, you could check out here: http://www.personalizationmall.com ; their stuff is great quality especially for the price.

@HeatherD16:  That sounds fine! It’s personal, and something they can use. The bridal party contributes so much already that they shouldn’t be expected to give an extravagant gift in addition.

you are already in the wedding and much cash has already been expected to be spent.  so if that is in your budget, then that is not cheap. sounds like a very cute gift.

i am not expecting gifts from my bridal party or brother (also in bridal party) and if they do, i’m sure it will not be extravagant.  perfectly acceptable.

I think it’s a cute idea and I’d love it. .My favorite gifts to get are gift certificates we can use for date nights since it forces us to go out and do something! I’d skip the wine glasses though, unless it’s something they registered for, since I personally hate when I only have 2 matching glasses.

I think it sounds nice.  Except for maybe the wine glasses.  Only because I have some that I love and wouldn’t want 2 random ones in my cabinet.  Maybe you could throw in some cheeses instead.

@HeatherD16:  I think that’s super cute, and also really generous after everything else you’ve done for the wedding.  I’d be psyched to get that.

@HeatherD16:  I always say, give what you can afford. Do not go into debt for someone else’s wedding or put your own goals/priorities on hold to give a gift. You know your brother best, but I think it sounds like a very thoughtful gift.

I don’t think its cheap but I know I would prefer a $75 giftcard/check.

I think it’s super cute!  I think they’d love it!  But I do agree with PPs (and you, it seems!) on the wine glasses – nix unless they registered for them!

I personally think that sounds like an awesome gift and would love to receive it!

@MadTownGirl:  I always buy “Our First Christmas” ornaments from that site for my newly married friends as a Christmas gift. 🙂

Do they like wine? You enroll them in a wine club, like The New York Times Wine Club

We received this as a gift and LOVED it! It also came with recipe ideas to cook together and pair the wine with. The friend who gave it to us wrote in the card that we should enjoy a bottle together every month on that month’s anniversary of our wedding. It was such a fun idea and forced us to stop and reminisce about our wedding day all year long.
