Mixing bowls and hand towels are on their registry but you want something a bit more personalized (and let's face it, more CREATIVE). Why not provide the happy couple with a massive amount of greetings? You can make sending their first "thank you" easy by including a variety of gratitude cards. They can scribble a "just thinking of you" on their new personalized stationery, and seal them with a few initial envelope seals.
It's the quintessential "gift that keeps on giving"!
Ideas for items to include:
Thank you cards
Blank inside cards
Happy birthday (generic) cards
Sympathy (generic) cards
Thinking of you cards
Colorful writing pens
I found this cute chalkboard crate at Hobby Lobby for 50% off . The goodies inside, I collected from a few different retail establishments (the Mr. & Mrs. truck cards are from Reeds & Ink Designs). The shower was a display shower, so no wrapping required. Genius!
A little burlap and an adorable bow were the perfect finishing touches! Don't forget the stamps, it's an added expense but makes the whole mailing process much easier for the happy couple.
A cheerful addition to the gift table too, don't you think?
This is also an excellent idea for new moms, graduates, teacher appreciation, etc. A gentle reminder to "be crate-ful"!
Happy Thank You Thursday, friends!
