Later this month I am going to a wedding for my cousin whom I am very close with. He has already been legally married to his wife for some time now and have been together years before that. They aren’t registered and I have no idea what to get them!
I mean they have been living together for years and have a set up house and such so anything household related I would think would be out. I know giving cash is not unusual but I hate giving cash gifts. I love choosing personanle gifts but I am really stumped.
Should I just give cash and a card? Suggestions?

What do they enjoy? For people who love cooking, a great piece of cookware or fancy knife would be great. For drinkers, a nice bottle of champagne with a pair of beautiful flutes or wine with nice wine glasses could work. If they like cuddling on the couch with movies, get a super cozy throw blanket in a neutral color.
How much are you comfortable spending?

They have kids so a lot of their time is spent at home with them. The cozy blanket is a neat idea. I’m looking to spend around $100. My Fiance and I are going and I’d like the gift to cover at least both our meals.
I thought about a gift card for a nice evening out but at that point I might as well give them cash.
Thanks for the suggestions though. My cousin loves to cook as well so maybe I could throw in a nice pan and cookbook?

I’ve been giving monogrammed couch throws to people and they’ve really seemed to like them. They usually say, “The Smith’s Established 2012”

A subscription to Cooks Illustrated? Or one of their hardbound cookbook sets?

OMG such a cute idea! Love, love, love that idea. I might really go with that and throw in some fun things for a fun at home date night. Great suggestion thanks!

A cozy throw blanket is a nice idea. I can recommend this one from L. L. Bean. I think it used to have a lot of 5 star reviews because that’s why I bought it – they must have re-labeled it or something. Anyway it’s washable wool which is nice – really warm.

Since they like to cook, I LOVE the Griddler, from Cuisinart. It’s a panini and grill (could replace a Foreman) all in one- plates can go in the dishwasher (yeah!), AND you can get waffle plates for it. One of my favorite wedding gifts- we use it all the time.
