Just had a question for everyone. My cousin is getting married in July and I have been thinking of gift ideas for her. So far I have come up with……
1. A gifts basket of kitchen things.
2. A movie date night gift basket.
What do you all think?

If you really want to get her a tangible gift then the kitchen basket is probably better. However every couple prefers money! Its a simple fact 🙂

I voted money because that’s what I would prefer.

What type of couple are they and what are “kitchen things”? Do they spend a lot of time in the kitchen and like to cook? Do they really love the movies?
Other than that, I agree with PtBullover… you can’t go wrong with money.

Money is ALWAYS great! but i love giving personal gifts – it shows you care.
I gave my SIL (then my FSIL) a giftbasket of kitchen stuff! i got them monogrammed aprons with Mr thierlastname and hers said Mrs. their with i also included heart shaped measuring cups from michaels and a newley wed cookbook! i thought it would be neat to get her something with her new name on it. She loved it.! so i voted kitchen stuff 🙂
but they are totally the couple who would throw aprons on and cook

I vote for kitchen gift basket and money. I just had my first shower, and got a couple of kitchen gift bags with very cute items (not on our registry) that I hadn’t thought about. It was really sweet! We also got a gift card for a small amount to our registry stores in the basket.
I thought it was so sweet that people spent the time to pick out and put together a coordinated gift basket! They turned out to be my favorite gifts.

She probably already registered for kitchen things. So unless you get off her registry, I vote for movie date night! My FI and I would love this 🙂

Love the idea of putting a gift card in the basket!

I voted for a kitchen basket. I love a themed present and I love kitchen items. I do agree that money is probably best but if you want to actually buy something, go with the kitchen items.

Unless the gift is something I really want but would never buy for myself (just cause it wasn’t practical or I would never spend that kind of money on that particular thing) or something I really need. Honestly, to me, a basket full of ‘things’ that I dont really need will probably just end up being clutter…. I would want cash.

I agree with some PP. If the kitchen basket isn’t things they registered for it may not go to use. I hate clutter and if it was for me, parts of it would likely end up donated somewhere.
I’d do cash or a gift card to a restaurant you know they like if you’re not loving anything on their registries.

small basket with gift cards- money is preferred. It just is (that is why we have a “wish” registry (www.uponourstar.com) – money is just easier and needed!

I think a movie date night gift basket is a cute idea.

I kinda like the different, unique idea of teh movie date night thing. But I can see the others working really as well!

Is this an actual wedding gift or a shower gift? I’m not a huge fan of physically bringing gifts to weddings so I voted for money.
