I can't believe it is already day 4!! Thriftary Giftary week is flying by!
OK - That is complete sarcasm. I was way in over my head when I told you that I would post different gifts every day... But I am glad I made the commitment, becuase it is intensely forcing me to let my creative juices flow.
Today is all about gifts you can give as a personalized wedding present. A lot of these things can be made, in addition to buying something off of a registry. In regards to weddings, never underestimate the registry. They are important becuase the bride and groom have flat out told you what they want! However, as Thriftarians, we know it can be painful to just walk in a store, buy a monogrammed towel and call it a day.
So... While browsing these homemade wedding gifts... Think of how you can incorporate them with a purchased item. For example, maybe the happy couple has registered for a french press.... You can make them some lovely teacup candles to accompany that gift, and add a very personal touch (NOTE: do not fill these with coffee. They are candles. It is a theme. Get it?). Or, if the happy couple has registered for a baking set (or even a KitchenAid if you're feeling really sassy and rich), you could make them a vintage cake stand to go along side! The possibilities are endless.
Since I have been forcing my creative chi this week... You should too. Let me know if you can come up with some other ideas of what/how to incorporate a DIY gift with a wedding registry item!
In the meantime... Here are today's wedded blisstary giftary...s
Now... Get all fancied up, head to that wedding, and dance the night away. You deserve it after creating such a beautiful masterpiece for the new bride and groom.
