October is a busy wedding month and that means fall wedding gifts. I have two weddings in the next two weeks. So what to give as a gift? Cash or a check is always a popular option, and the gift I give most often. I don’t know too many people who can’t use some extra cash. Money is certainly an eco-friendly gift, but is it memorable? Every time I use my crystal bowl or look at the framed print of the historic site where we were married, I think about the friends who gave us those gifts even if we haven’t seen them in years. They’re also things I wouldn’t buy for myself, but I’m happy to have. So what are some eco-friendly, memorable wedding gifts?
Finally, there are two catalogs that I just drool over whenever I see them. They both have great serving pieces, household items, glassware, and other treasures that would make fabulous wedding gifts, and they both focus on recycled, reclaimed, and sustainable materials. I have bought a few things for myself from VivaTerra, and I’ve always been happy with the products. I have not yet bought from Art & Artifacts, but I certainly would like to. [Editor’s Note 11/2019 — Art & Artifacts doesn’t seem to be around anymore.]
Both the Christmas Memories Book and the 8-inch tree of life would easily fit inside a Medium VZWrap, and we have several beautiful bags in our wedding collection. So tell me — what is your favorite wedding gift? Is there something fabulous you’ve given or received?
