- Wedding: September 2011
I really love the worst wedding gift thread!! ( http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/worst-wedding-gift-received )
So, I decided to start a BEST wedding gift thread – It won’t be as funny, but it will be great to hear what different Bees considered their best gifts 🙂 And, it will give us great ideas to give at future weddings 🙂
I have a few… My parents gifted us a photo booth for our reception! 🙂 (They also gave us a generous monetary gift! We were really grateful for all of the money we received because we could buy thing that we didn’t want to register for – such as TV stand, bookshelf cubes, etc…)
My best friend (MOH) lives in Italy with her husband because he’s stationed there with the Air Force. She brought me TONS of serving things (bowls, platters, mugs, etc) that are icolor kitchen colors and are MADE IN ITALY! So nice and thoughtful 🙂
My parents also gave us a knife block (and knives), two storage ottomans, and a crockpot as engagement gifts – We use the crockpot at least once a week, often twice…the ottomans daily and the knife block daily – Some seriously useful gifts.
Oh! And my SIL (brother’s wife) and her mom gave me a Pampered Chef pizza stone at my shower – we love it for pizzas and cookies!
That same SIL and my brother gave us their old kitchen table – painted black, it was exactly what we wanted. They also gave us a side table that we painted black 🙂 They were a huge help!
Oh! DH’s BIL’s parents (His sister’s in laws) gave us a very nice coffee table and matching side table. We thought, based on the cell phone pic, that they were in not so great shape, so we planned to paint them black – we much prefer black to wood… Wen we got them, they looked brand new! We still painted them (which my parents thought was crazy!) and we love them now! 🙂 This couple wasn’t even invited to our wedding… they just heard that their daughter-in-law’s brother was getting married and asked them if we needed this furniture! So generous 🙂
So, what was your BEST wedding gift?? 🙂
