I know that registries are set up for a really good reason: They help direct guests to gifts that are exactly what the marrying couple wants or needs. But you know what? I can’t get myself to order off of them. Somehow, it makes me feel like I’ve copped out, not in the money department, but in the creativity department. I simply feel that getting someone I care about, say, measuring spoons is just too impersonal. When I go renegade, gifting outside of the registry, I often look to the ever chic, French linen house of Yves Delorme for answers.
Yves Delorme makes some of the most yummy bedding in the world, and a set of sheets, a mohair throw, or any number of their gorgeous blankets become the kind of gift that is basic enough to fit beautifully into any setting and ultra-luxurious enough to qualify as extra special.
Gift something that brides and grooms will adore and remember you for. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think about my measuring spoons so much or even remember where I got them. (Wink!)
I think these are also pretty hot options:
