My DH and I are in that age where every single person we know is either engaged or married and so we have a lot of parties and showers and weddings to go to (our own inlcuded). Last Saturday was our at-home BBQ that a friend threw for us since we had a destination wedding. At this party was a couple that are getting married in two weeks.
The groom-to-be told my DH that they did not bring a gift to our party and that they would like to just not exchange wedding gifts with each other. My DH said sure and just told me about this the next day. I can’t imagine showing up to a wedding empty handed so I’m trying to think of something small/cheap to give them that will be nice but not make them feel guilty.
Normally I bake something, but the bride-to-be is quite the baker herself. So, any ideas of what I could include with a card? Something sentimental or meaningful without being expensive?
Any help is appreciated!!!

She’s a baker? Could you maybe enclose a family recipe or something like that?

@AllieBee12: What about something like this? If baking is a big thing in their household, a cookbook stand may be the way to go! There’s tons of items like it on Etsy, but this specific one is less than $20

SInce she is a baker why not include a family baking recipe and the ingredients to make the dish. you kind find something cute to write about mixing up love or the like. I am sure the more creative bees could come up with some wording.

I think you’d also be fine with just a nice handwritten note/card.
I’m worried that if you showed up with a gift, they would feel very bad/guilty for not getting you one.

@DaneLady: @j_jaye: I’m liking the recipe thing…. that’s what I was going for, something that’s heartfelt rather than material.
@PacificMrs: That’s a good idea for something small too… Although I’m not sure that I could find a good one in time. I don’t know what their house looks like or what their style is, and since we’re in Canada shipping takes so much longer than it should. You’ve made me think of something I saw on Pinterest a while back though. Someone put their grandma’s old handwritten recipies on tea towels. Maybe I could make something cute like that?
@Glasgowbound: That’s my worry too. But I’d like to show them that we care. something sentimetal or meaningful that doesn’t really have a monetary value.

@AllieBee12: Oh I LOVE the tea towel idea! Very cute!
