Alternative Shower Gift Ideas

28 June 2012

Everyone knows what a registry is for, right? Well, at least 50-60% of most wedding guests do. But no matter what bride you talk to it is almost guaranteed that you will get something not on your registry. I know! Bummer, right? Well here is guide for you guests out there that want to purchase something for a wedding that is not exactly conventional.

Zoo Membership
Memberships to local activities such as art museums, zoos, and gyms are a great way to either introduce a couple to a new city or just give them some pre-planned dates. A membership at the Nashville Zoo, for instance, is around $100 for a two people which is the average price for a wedding gift.

Personalized Recipe Box
Weddings conjure up monogrammed everything! Why not be for something more practical such as a personalized recipe box from Williams Sonoma. I actually purchased this for a friend of mine and collected family recipes from all of her shower guests. Awesome to pass down to future generations!

Living Social Adventures
One last possibility is an experiences such as a Living Social Adventure. You could purchase an adventure such as a trip to Atlanta for a BBQ and Moonshine tasting if your bride and groom were in the Atlanta area. Be sure to pay attention to the dates for such an adventure to allow for the bride and groom to redeem after the honeymoon. Make sure it spans a 3-6 month window after the wedding! You could equally purchase something to do in their town of residence such as a night getaway at a boutique hotel or even just a midnight ghost tour gift certificate.
