Gift Idea

I have a friend getting married in June. She is having a shower in May and, to my knowledge, doesn't plan on registering anywhere (I think she hopes to just get $). I've suggested a PC shower and she doesn't seem interested :thumbdown:. I am planning to buy her a couple items from the catalog and I don't want to spend more than $50. What are your favorite products to suggest to newly wed/engaged couples?

Thanks!

Medium Bamboo Square bowl
Bamboo Salad Tongs
Measure Mix and Pour
Spin on Salads Cookbook

I do this as a special (at $50) for my parties and people love it. I would have loved this gift as a new bride.

Several years back we did a Bridal Shower for my niece. I was surprised at the amount folks were spending for Shower gifts. Our 15" Pizza Stone, a Pizza Cutter, All the Best Cookbook and Pizza Mix would be a fantastic gift set. My niece loved that set, and one of her bridesmaids requested she give them the same set a few months later. The groom was brought up on Pizza, and they use it several times a week, she tells me.

Let her pick out $50 worth, this way she gets what she wants. I would hate to give her something she might already have - or don't use. Plus, she might want more and spend more than $50 worth.

Food chopper - my friend went crazy for the food chopper when she opened it.

Since the Trifle Bowl is on special this month, why not go with that? If you feel you need to add something, you can give the Easy Accent Decorator, or the Beaded Serving Spoon.

Be careful with this, though. You don't want to come off as self-serving, but make sure the couple understands you're giving the gift because you truly think they will love it. I suggest taking whatever you give out of the PC box(es), and repacking it(them) in a gift box. This way, it's obvious you're not just trying to advertise your business, but you are giving from the heart.

I have a coworker who is getting married in June and I've heard her say that she loves pineapple, but she buys it already cut and you know that is more expensive than buying it fresh. So I'm planning on giving her the pineapple wedger along with a fresh pineapple. I just don't know yet if I'm going to add anything else to it and if I add anything else I don't know what else. I was thinking maybe the small collapsible serving bowls since it's a summer wedding. What do you all think?:)
