I know the bridal party isn’t always expected to get the couple a wedding gift, but since all the moolah we’ve spent has been for her specifically, I’d like to get a little something that includes the groom as well.
But I’m also kinda broke after all this wedding stuff, so I’d like to keep it in the $25 range. Maybe frame their wedding invitation? Any ideas?
Preferably nothing handmade, since the last time I attempted a craft project I super-glued myself to the floor…

@wondersquirrel: what about a beautiful vase:)

A bottle of wine is always a nice gift … assuming they both drink of course!
I also came across some monogrammed cutting boards on Etsy recently. A search will turn up tons of options. It’s useful but still sentimental.
Lastly, you could do something like his and hers slippers. Include a note about how they are the “perfect pair”.

Whenever I don’t have a lot of money, I get people a movie night basket. I just fill up a gift bag or basket with a couple of DVD’s (you can get decent ones from wal-mart in the $5 bin) candy and microwave popcorn. Maybe even a couple pairs of fuzzy socks to throw on for a couch night. Everyone loves it!

How about monogrammed aprons? That is what I got my Boyfriend or Best Friend when she got married. I was a bridesmaid and had already spent way more than I had intended on the dress, alterations, etc. She loved it!

@wondersquirrel: I like @QueenOfSerendip‘s idea. Any “date in a bag” idea is good. Some cute shaped pasta with a nice jar of sauce in a pot would be awesome.
My best friend and I also really like getting people board games for their wedding, as an incentive to have people over so they don’t get swallowed up in coupledom 🙂 Toys R Us often has sales on games.
