    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 🙂

    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.
