Choosing an Alternative Gift
Think of things that the couple enjoys doing together. For example, if the happy couple enjoys cooking together, consider gift baskets that will lend a hand in the kitchen. You could also make a basket of items to create a specific type of cuisine(Italian, Asian, Thai, etc.). It may also get them to try something new.
