Gift Basket for a New Bride

This past summer we had a new bride move into our community and I wanted to give her a welcome-to-the-community gift.  I’m often short on resources, but I’ve learned that adding a few special touches take a gift from things to a gift from the heart.  I’ll show you a few pictures and hopefully it can inspire you.

Here’s a picture from the new bride gift basket I assembled for the women’s seminar:


Gift ideas:

::Marital Bliss with a Kiss of Reality

–because sometimes you need someone who understands


:: Specialty drink

–because there’s always a good time to share a drink under the stars


:: Package of tissues

–because even in this happy time, I know you’ll need them


::Quick meal or gift card or invitation

–because sometimes carefully planned meals flop.


::Pregnancy test

–because sometimes you need peace of mind.


:: Gum

–because you always want to have kiss-ready breath


This is a start.  What would you add to the list?
