I am a fan of weddings.
I love everything from the planning, to the shopping, the prepping, the parties….oh the parties. I love me a good Bridal Shower.
Since we were in the process of moving while planning our wedding and getting everything together so quickly, I chose to forgo my own. Planning bridal showers is fun and it is even more fun to shop for a special gift for the newlyweds.

They had met after having been in previous relationships, there were already kids involved and they were essentially combining two well established households into one.
When shopping for a gift for a couple who is already living together, has a family or is not in need of much, I like to put together a few of my favorite household items, things I use on a regular basis.

Does the couple in question like beer or wine? Gift a fabulous set of glasses.
Maybe they prefer a fresh brewed cup of coffee……a Keurig Vue (my personal favorite) is a great gift as well.
Or, if all else fails and you really don’t know what to buy, you can never go wrong with a gift of…….
