We had 3 weddings here last month and sometimes that can get interesting when you're trying to come up with gifts. Hubby always likes to give a portable tool set for 2 reasons. #1 because out of all the gifts we received when we got married 16 years ago that is the present we have used the most. Seriously. We love that item. In fact, we just had to replace ours last year. And #2 because he feels the groom gets ripped off in the gift department. Probably true.
However, if we don't really know the groom then I'd prefer to give something off their gift registry. That may be a little boring, but I do try to personalize it a little bit. This year I bought some kitchen items off 2 different registries and then added a handmade apron.
This is how I wrapped the latest of those gifts for the reception for a girl from our Church.
Bundt pan, hotpad, and towel, wrapped it in an apron and then wrapped all in cellophane and a pretty ribbon. I try to not use wrapping paper when possible because I think it is a waste. But I still like it too look fun and pretty.
After finishing putting it all together I remembered I had found this tutorial for making covers for bowls--for taking to a potluck or such. It might have been fun to have added one to use w/ the bundt pan. Maybe next wedding reception....
