This is more bridal shower than Baby Shower, but I trust the opinions of many on this board.
My Husband's Aunt is having a bridal shower 4 days before my due date. I wasn't formally invited, b/c during the planning, MIL let the planners know that I wouldn't be able to make it. However, this aunt came to my small, intimate baby shower this weekend with her daughter and gave me a very generous gift. I would like to send something for her with my MIL to the shower.
Now heres my dilemma - I have NO IDEA what to get her. She's an older bride, second marriage, both bride and groom have high school/college age kids. They already have a household set up, and did not register anywhere.
For the shower, I would maybe get a really nice picture frame (silver) or some nice wine glasses and be sure to include a gift receipt and purchase from a store with a good return policy.
For the wedding, I would probably give cash or a gift card.
How about a set of engraved champagne flutes? My cousins got us a set for our engagement party and we used them at the reception and every New Year's Eve since the wedding. You could get them a set with a nice bottle of champagne.
My SIL and BIL gave H and I an engraved photo album with our names and dates. We used SIL as our photographer and we used the album for all of our wedding pictures.
I would probably get a really nice piece of serveware or platter from Wilton Armatelle. I love that stuff- and I'd choose a subdued piece or a summery piece. I saw a cute crab platter the other day at BB&B I think.
