Gift Baskets for Bride and Groom on Wedding Day

Hey everybody,

I am my sister's maid of honor and I wanted to do something a little special on their wedding day.  I wanted to give a gift basket to the bride, and a seperate one to the groom, on their wedding day.  I was just wondering if anybody had any ideas of what to put in their seperate gift baskets.  Thanks so much!

    I've never really heard of doing separate gift baskets and it sounds a little odd to me, so I can't help you there.  I have friends who have set up the bride and groom's wedding night hotel room though, setting up champagne, covering the room in rose petals, etc.

    yes, i is definitely different.  i was planning on setting up their room for the wedding night as well.  but, i recently got married and my sister and her fiance put together an awesome slideshow, which was a surprise to us, and played it during the reception.  i cannot think of any other way of surprising them, besides copying my sister's idea, so i thought i could just get them some really neat a gift basket.

    That's a toughie because I have never heard of that before either. I guess maybe buying some items that fit their interest and then something that they will both use together (maybe one gets a digital photo frame and the other a memory card of pictures of them leaving a note that they need to bring them together to get the final surprise). Or just some treats and a really heartfelt note expressing your love for both of them.

    I would personally get one gift basket for both of them with wine or champagne and some gourmet foods they can both enjoy.

    Ditto PPs.  A nice basket in the hotel room would be great, but don't "set up the room."  That's creepy, IMO.  If you want to have chilled champagne or chocolate-dipped strawberries, etc. sent up I think that would be appropriate.

    I think it is a nice idea. Who cares if people have never heard of it before? I like that you're thinking outside the box. If someone were to do that for me, I'd like  a romantic basket with champagne and chocolate. Or, if you're really close with your sister, it might be fun to make a honeymoon basket with "other" types of things in it as well Tongue out
  • I agree with people that it might make a bit more sense to just give them one basket with things that they will both use-champagne, chocolates, candles, food, massage oils, etc.-but it would be cool to throw in some extra things specifically just for each of them too...maybe wrap up a couple presents, but their names on them, and add that to the basket?  It depends on what their own individual tastes are, but I'm sure you could come up with a couple extra things that they would both like.
