What was your most favorite bridal gift?
Posted 22 July 2008 - 02:20 PM
I like the idea of stationary though. Personalized, nice stationary is cool. I never had anything like it, but would like to get myself some!
And I know I had an idea, but I forgot it while typing up the responses! Dang it. I will post back when/if I remember.

Something else that i have bought for a few people's engagements are the Christmas ornaments that are clay people with their names and date of engagement on them. The one I bought just a few weeks ago said thier names, "He asked, she said yes!" and the date. Very cute!
Ab, I couldn't find them on the website either! That is why I had to go to the store and they had them. I just checked my receipt and tried looking it up by item # or the description, but they don't come up. Perhaps they don't list the items when they aren't that expensive? Anyway, I can take a pic of mine, or you just might see pics posted sometime soon!

It is supercute but I can't decide whether or not to spray paint it...I just found out her favorite color is a light blue. What do you guys think?
I also got these books to throw in the wagon.
Then I got her personalized stationary:
I am going to get these flip flops that I was given for my wedding. I can't seem to find them online but my friend said they sell them at Hallmark. They are white flipflops and at the thong of the flip flop is a fake diamond. They are so cute.
I tried looking for cute ring holders but I couldn't find any I liked.
I am also getting her a bag of monogramed M&M candies. I will do some with their pic and some that say "Meant to be". I will get them in light blue. What's really cute about this is that her new initial from her married name is "M" so its fitting that the M&M's have "M"s on them. I think she will like this.
I still need more to fill the wagon though. Carly you gave me great ideas about the nail polish. I think I am going to buy her Essie one's that have to do with love or wife. Like the color "love of my wife" and "starter Wife", "life after sex", etc. Thanks for the nail idea Carly!
Jen can you post the digital frame you got? That sounds really cute!

my mil bought me a heart shaped lenox ring holder. it's not my taste, but it's cute and heart shaped. mine is crystal, but i wish i had this one: Amazon.com: Lenox Wedding Promises Silver Plate 2-Piece Ring Holder and Heart Box: Kitchen & Dining
i have a digital frame too. it holds 3,000 pics. Buy the Smartparts 12.1" Digital Picture Frame and other Digital frames at circuitcity.com i don't think the giver paid that much for it tho, so search around. it comes in different colors too.
my favorite things, as cheesy as they are, were a fisherman's hat that says bride in rhinestones, a matching t-shirt, and flip flops that say i 'heart' him. he got matching ones - all would be perfect for the honeymoon!
i'll keep thinking.
oh i also got some cute things like this: Amazon.com: Sponge Glove- Pink & Black with White Dots: Kitchen & Dining
do they live together? do they have a house?

I agree with Lauren, I would leave the wagon pink. It's way too cute not to. Use blue for other things like ribbon etc.
