Personalizing Wedding (Registry) Gift Ideas

31 December 2013

With the holidays just barely behind us, wedding invitations have begun to go out, making special stops into our mailboxes. Now, while I'm entirely up for the excitement, my wallet, not so much. Yes, registries are great but unless you're buying the top tier item (ie: Keurigs, Kitchenaid mixers & food processors), you might be feeling like you're lacking in a few places. Thus the need for a little personalization without breaking the bank. So, I teamed up with Target to create a personalized wedding gift right off one of my girlfriend's registry who's husband happens to love Coffee.

Since they opted for a French Press (under $40), I grabbed a couple mugs and canisters to add a little something special to the gift. Now, since I know they love their Starbucks, I threw in a couple bags of the newest flavors and some biscotti for dipping. Arranged it in a pretty basket and it's an easy yet fun gift to give while staying true to the registry, and not breaking the bank.
