One of my dear friends is getting married. The wedding is here in Florida (where they live 6 months of the year). However, they live in New Hampshire. They are visiting in May, so I am planning a shower for them then. Heres my dilema...I am considering doing a gift card shower, because it seems ridiculous to have them get all these gifts and then have to spend all the money to have them shipped back home. But everytime I tell someone about the idea, they cringe. Apparently, the "older women" dont like to be told what to buy and think that gift cards arent personal enough.
So I need ideas ladies! What can I do to MAKE it personal? I had thought about assigning people different themes like "if Steph and Joe were going on a date, give them a gift card for where they should go." or "if Steph and Joe were going to cook dinner together, give them a gift card for a store where they can buy fun kitchen gadgets." Does this idea sound good? or confusing? Does anyone have a BETTER idea? Im open to suggestions!
We'll make it better...the second time around.
