Wedding Gift

My friend, Kelly, introduced me to my favorite wedding gift idea and together we made this gift for my sister's wedding. Our gift consisted of a basket filled with three bottles of wine with DIY labels, a decorative metal "L" for Amy's new last name "Long", and glass coasters with DIY inserts keeping with the "L" theme. The three wine labels contain the last name of the newly-married couple, followed by the wedding date and positive wishes for their future. The card enclosed explained that the first bottle of wine was to celebrate their day of marriage, the second to celebrate their first anniversary and the third to celebrate their first child together. Besides the wine, the basket can be filled with any number of things. Some relevant items would be wine glasses, corkscrew, picnic basket with supplies, pasta and sauce, and the list goes on. I really love the personal touch that this gift exhibits and the versatility to adapt to different couples, plus its pretty!
