Tip Tuesday – Ultimate Wedding Gift Guide
In my FB Group, Organizing Solutions for Busy Women, married folk have had some fantastic discussions about the WORST and BEST wedding gifts they received. If you know someone getting married this year, please let me share this “Wedding Gift Wisdom” to prevent your wedding gift from being wasted!
Someone said “Cash is King,” and that is always true for newlywed couples. Try the “formula” below to customize a cash gift! Change up the numbers to make it add up to what you can afford and enclose this note with your greeting card:
Why a check for $196?
Start with 5 for the month of May
plus 23 for the day of your wedding = 28
plus 21 for the year of your nuptials = 49
times the 2 years of your engagement = 98
times the two of you, perfect together, united forever = 196

Funnily, champagne flutes and a pasta maker appeared on both the “Worst” and “Best” lists! So the rule of thumb is know your audience: Do they enjoy bubbly and Italian food?
If you choose wisely from the “In” column, you can be confident the newly married couple will have a gift that will serve them well for years to come! Let me know if you have any more ideas to add to the list!
