    Help! Present for wedding..?

    So my cousin (I barely know, only met him once as a kid) is getting married this month. My dad will be visiting relatives there, so I was thinking about sending a lil present, but I'm out of ideas. It should be 1) LIGHT (because dad is already taking too much with him) and 2) not overly expensive. No, gift cards won't work in this case (without going into details). So any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    A nice little basket of treats? Baskets you make are my favorite to do and to receive.

    Are they registered anywhere? I'm sure you could look at their list and pick something that fits what your description.

    Would a throw be too bulky?

    Something to help set up home with? I generally look around the house and think 'everyone needs one of them' and try and get something similair.
    Could even be a small hamper with food in.. we get lovely little ones with home mads jams and preserves in it :)

    Maybe a certificate for a couples massage or something like that in a card?

    A lot of times you can find pretty crystal looking bowls or serving dishes on sale, they look expensive and are something they can pull out to serve guests. Another thing is a bread plate. I know in my family my grandmother loves to give those out and those are things that will stay with a family for generations (esp if it isn't glass or plastic- some type of metal).

    My go-to wedding gift has recently been a personalized wooden cutting board. Oftentimes I will look through my friend's wedding registry and come across wooden cutting boards they have registered for. If that's the case, I'll opt to buy them these really nice, personalized cutting boards I found on etsy instead. ( They are beautifully made and I have receieved many compliments from those whom I have given them to. They're unique, yet useful and practical (the reverse side without the monogram can be used as a regular cutting board and the monogram side can be used for display or as a serving board, etc).

    Oh one other thing: they have many different designs AND you can order them to be delivered straight to the couple's address as a gift. I did that once since I wasn't going to be able to get the cutting board in time, I just had them mail it directly to the couple (they leave the invoice and billing information out so that only you receive it). Quick, convenient, and easy!

    I give personalized totes for him/her. They fold up, with metal handles. Great for all the billion times they will have to go somewhere or take something and it reminds them of their wedding. Sometimes I fill with whatever they are into, sporting goods, cooking stuff, or just empty.

    Money. Light, easy to carry, and is never the wrong size or color!
