We mostly received money but my mum bought us really beautiful champagne flutes and ice bucket that I love. We didn’t have a registry so not sure where they were from.

Honestly, it was money.  We loved all the tangible gifts because obviously we asked for them.  But the money was awesome.  We used it to put a downpayment on our first house.  And that’s the best gift ever in my book.

We are in the process of picking out new appliances courtesy of both sets of parents.  I cannot wait because they are desperately needed!!!

My Kitchenaid mixer!!!

I think my DH’s favorite is our blender. He uses it every day to make fruit smoothies.

I loved everything I received, but the one that floored me the most was when my parents paid off the remainder of my student loans for me as a gift. I was SOOO shocked!  It was such a huge blessing and help, and put us that much closer to being able to start our own family!!

Oh…but material-wise, my brother, aunt, uncle, and cousin gave us a bunch of camping equipment, which was AWESOME!!! 🙂

My brother got us each a really nice watch. It was a really cool present…and not something we asked for. I love my new Movado 🙂

We did a honeymoon registry and hands down our fave thing was our private candlelit dinner on the beach at our honeymoon resort.

Aside from the money gifts (and honeymoon registry) my favorite tangible items are this cool chip and dip/server thingy, a Kate Spade beach bag to take on our honeymoon, and a pair of diamond studs.  They were completely a surprise gift from my mom and sister but I love them.

We most appreciated the letters and cards where people wrote things more than “Congrats.”  Some of them were really lovely.

Stuff wise: a pottery serving set that we didn’t ask for, no idea where it’s from.  It was from my mom’s best friend and she vetted it with my mom first.

Also, our wine glasses and china that we picked out.  🙂

We received almost all monetary gifts for our wedding but my favorite shower gift is a toss up between the Kitchenaid Pro and Dyson. Both have changed my world!

We haven’t had our wedding yet, but so far our favorite gift is the Kitchenaid. My grandmother is also buying us a bedroom set (as in, all the furniture) which I’m very excited about, too. People have been so generous to us!
