"I'm looking for something in a broadsword"



Despite my promise to fill in the blanks from the last two weeks I am first going to ask for your opinion on the bridal shower gift I just bought for Holly. Because I am a moron and I waited too long to choose a gift everything on her registry is gone with the exception of chip clips and seriously, I'm not buying chip clips for my best friend's wedding. I had wanted to get her something unique and I'm not a huge fan of registries anyway. If I didn't think she'd kill me for it I'd have gotten her some hideous antique deviled egg tray or an old fashioned guide to wifely duties. Alas, it's not that kind of bridal shower. So I chose these glasses, I picked four states that are meaningful to the couple (four because they're ridiculously expensive...as all great gifts are no?).

My sister was dubious when I told her about my choice on the phone...so...I need help. If you think this is a ridiculous and sad bridal shower gift please speak now or forever hold your peace. I don't want to screw up but then I don't want to get her a blender either, so if you had a house full of basics and a registry that is completely bought up before the invitations even go out please let me know what you'd think about this gift.

one of my favorite wedding gifts was a set of novelty pint glasses from Pottery Barn - we've been drinking out of them for seven years!

I would say this was an excellent gift.

I think this is the ideal kind of wedding gift - it's personal and fun and useful.

Most definitely stray from the boring ol' registry! Those are only recommendations for your aunt Gladys who hasn't seen you since you had braces... Go for the personal touch.

I agree that this is an awesome wedding gift, in fact, I was thinking of doing something similar for my own best friend's wedding! Love your blog, by the way!

Thanks for all the help, I'm excited for the party now.

Thanks for the compliment too Ryan!

I think the glasses are wonderful! I waited too long for Tracy and Jeff and I ended up with a toothpick dispenser in hand and an announcement card for a set of dishes to arrive at a later date. Exciting!

I am totally buying you a toothpick dispenser for your wedding. Maybe 2.
