That sounds cute!

I always think giftcards are great, but I know some people feel funny giving these as gifts.

Getting a gift is a sweet gesture.  She will be excited and treasure whatever you get.  Sounds like the wedding cook book is perfect for your case.

I would give different things to different people: I often give ‘consumable’ gifts maybe a spa gift card, bottle of bubbles, or take her out.

I would get her a keepsake box, a Bride Journal, a ring holder or maybe a Bride Tshirt! =] Its always nice to get little things like that in my opinion!

I love giving toasting flutes.  Love Waterford.  That is something special they will keep and treasure and remember you when they toast their anniversary year after year.

im not personally a big fan of the “bride” stuff (like engraved stuff or something like a “bride” bathrobe or something like that). especially because its not something i would enjoy or use after the wedding.  i have a gift that ive given in the past to a few close girlfriends: 

i really like the champagne glasses from Anthropogie.  they arent super “wedding-y” or super girlie either.  their elegant, a gorgeous shape, beautifully patterned and are made of Slovakian crystal, not made in china.  they are really reasonably priced as well as and PERFECT as toasting flutes. 

see them here

@bellenga: My Aunt just gave us some for Christmas to use at our wedding next year. She does this for everyone that gets married in our family. I agree that that is a great gift. Our’s were Waterford. Another Aunt of mine also got us a cake serving set.

We gave our friends a couples massage as an engagement gift.  The stipulation was that they had to use it when the stress of planning their wedding got to them.  They loved it and we were told it was the best gift ever!
