I’ve been to a shower with a wishing well before and I didn’t bring anything for it.  They wanted us to bring like canned goods and other kitchen items for the bride and groom.  Frankly, I didn’t really like the idea of it. I think people should be able to provide that for themselves.  A shower gift from their registry is more than enough.

Yes, I’ve seen these before.  It is supposed to be something small for the kitchen -think a spatula, a mixing spoon or a whisk.  At least at the ones I’ve seen, no one is expecting you to pay loads of money on this (5-10 max).  Also, I attached a recipe I liked to the items I put in the Well. But bottom line, no one is crossing your name off a list to see what you put in the Wishing Well, so if you don’t want to, I’d say don’t.

Have fun at the Shower!

Yes, this is definitely big in my hometown. If you don’t feel like going out and getting a kitchen gadget for the wishing well, you can always give the bride one of your favorite recipes! Otherwise, usually they’re for the smaller things that someone wouldn’t normally pick up like a spatula or a whisk…like everyone above mentioned.

This is big where I’m from too.  At the last shower I went to, I actually bought a gadget off of her registry (it was like $5)  In fact, for this reason I registered for inexpensive gadgets because I figured my mom/sister will prob have a wishing well.

I like that idea!  I usually give a special jar of Wassle.  Can’t buy it in stores, and giving the recipe isn’t as fun.  Plus I like to dress up the jar!

I usually do the recipe card and drop in some of the non perisable ingredint in the recipe.  But you shouldn’t feel obligated to put any thing in.

This is popular where I come from too. We had one at mine and there’s been one at every one
I’ve been to.
