I am desperate, and I am reaching out!

I wrote a previous post about my friend Shannon and her fiance getting married this month. I was looking for suggestions for a gift. Well here I am, with three days left until the wedding and only today as the only shopping day. I have to work late the rest of the days up until the wedding.

I am asking


For any and every suggestion(s) from everyone in blogland and J-land, Including you surfers on blogmad.
I am looking for something useful.

For the record she already has a George foreman grill. She suggested that I get one.

She doesn't have a wedding registry, so that idea is out the window too.
Any other ideas, I am all ears.


Desperately Seeking Wedding Gift


The wedding is Casual, I need tips on what to where too, as I don't know exactly what that means.

Alright. She has a Grill. And she's not registered? Hmm, appliances always work.

Casual doesn't mean sneakers and jeans, youre gonna have to wear a nice shirt, slacks and some shoes.

a gift certificate from any store you know that she likes to shop at???

Omar's right about the attire. And as for a gift--here's few things that we got when we got married that we really liked:
--an indoor s'mores maker
--a quesadilla maker
--gift certificate to Target, Walmart, Bed, Bath, and Beyond
--cash (some people say this is impersonal, we loved the people who knew we'd need this more than the freakin' six toasters we'd have to exchange)
--movie tickets (married people need to date too, ya know)

Hope that helps, and have a great time at the wedding!!

nice shirt, nice pants, nice shoes. Do not need a tie or jacket.

How much are you willing to spend? What are some items that would go with the grill? Crystal is always nice, picture frames, photo albums, cookbooks that graviate toward the grill......

As lame as this may sound, photo albums work, especially elegant ones that are not horribly expensive. Married folk want good ones to put their pictures in, and they impress the lady well. Crystal works well, too, especially if it has good weight and can be useful. Represent NY right and wear a suit, big dog!!
