    Talking Well, that's a brilliant gift!

    So, my friends are getting married this weekend and I need to get them a gift. I always seem to find the coolest links through boardies. Can anyone suggest something?

    They're a very unique couple (bouncy castle at wedding).
    Their website is http://wegettinmarriedyall.com/ just to give you an idea...


    I have no problem with over night delivery so all ideas are welcome.

    Ok, we just got married and I have some very important input.


    Cash.


    Seriously.

    Our registry was through a travel company. People were able to buy us drinks on the ship, special dinners, sailing excursions, etc. I'd say about half of our guests (mostly on my side) did the registry. The other half did it old school--cash in a card. We were basically able to pay for our entire honeymoon with the registry and the cash we had on hand made up for the extra night's fancy meals, paid for an extra night's fancy hotel room, tips, cabs, etc. It was so great to have that money on hand.

    Not creative, but very helpful. Also, cute couple and website. They also look very young. They probably need it.

    Perfect. I can get a gangsta wad of cash.

    I'll still have the freedom the find a creative method of delivery I guess.

    Note: Combined ages of 52. Very young...but explains the bouncy castle (which I can't wait for!)

    Sounds to me like a couple who wants their cash delivered in a piņata with a pair of his-and-hers hittin' sticks.

    Seriously.
    Seconded. On all three points. Also, anything that supports what they like to do. Neato gifts are neat, but unless you got a shit ton of money, useful gifts are better. But this is just my opinion.

    No offense to the bread-maker (because who doesn't like bread) but the piņata might be the most thoughtful idea ever!

    I was going to carefully crack open walnuts, place bills inside, glue them together etc....now I feel like such a lame-ass.


    Looks like I'm fixin' to snag some hittin' sticks!

    You all are making me want to get married just to get some cool gifts/cash. Can I just have a wedding without the marriage?

    lol, actually I already have a boyfriend, I just meant I wanted a party where my friends give me cash and kitchen gadgets. I just don't want to get married again, it makes it way too difficult to break up. Who wants paperwork to end a relationship?

    Becky and I are registered at a website where we list what we are doing on our honeymoon, and people can contribute money. We have stuff like a camel ride to the pyramids, a desert bedouin camp at the wadi rum, a day in Petra, etc. listed. Without this honeymoon registry, the trip would not have been possible. We already have dishes, cutlery, microwave, couch, dining set, etc. etc. We dont need 14 toasters and another few sets of cutlery.

    Basically, what Jen said. Cash. If it was delivered in a Pinata, that would be an excellent bonus.

    Fair enough. Perhaps you guys can move and have a house warming party. BOOM, free gifts.

    Honeyfund? I'm registered there too.

    This is as good a thread as any to ask, does anyone have any good ideas for gifts to give to my groomsmen? I don't want to go with a boring ass money clip or something like that.

    I struggled with that too. However, one of my groomsmen is a boardie, so I should probably not say what I am getting them. Expect a PM soon.

    Miniature piņatas full of miniature cash. It's a good formula.
