A wedding Shower
Anyway, I wanted to share a gift idea with you. I love buying gifts for people for any occasion. I put a lot of thought into the gifts I buy (usually). I don't like buying things from a registry, I like giving something special and maybe personalized. I'm not saying that no one should ever buy from the registry. That's what it's there for, but it's always nice when one or two people go the personal route.
personalwine.com, you can design your own labels for any occasion. I gave this gift to my sister-in-law a couple years ago. Then, I got the glasses from weddingaccessories.net. They were nice and had a large selection. This time, for Amanda, I bought the glasses from personalcreations.com. The selection was smaller and they didn't have exactly what I was looking for, but I was very happy with what I did buy. Also, they participate in the Box Tops for Education program. If you go to btfe.com and shop through their marketplace, personal creations gives back 4% of your order to your school. Also, I found a 20% off coupon, so the order was good for everyone!
So, there is my gift suggestion for a wedding shower. The glasses and champagne totalled to just under $100, that included the crazy shipping costs I had to pay for waiting to order it a week before the shower.
And congratulations to my brother Andrew and his Amanda!
