Wedding season is here!  Actually, it never ends.  There is always someone getting married at any given time of the year.  Love knows no limits or time for that matter.  But what do you do to go out and buy them a wedding gift?  First thing I would do is go through their wedding registry.  Find out what they need and get an idea of how they want to establish their decor as a couple.  You can definitely get an idea of what their tastes will be like by the choices they make in their wedding registry.  Also, where they are registered at.  That’s important.  But I’m not really here to encourage you to buy something from their registry.  What I am encouraging you is to find out what they need.  Something functional, daily use and eye catching.  Then take that idea and buy handmade.

How about a handmade cutting board?  Who doesn’t need a cutting board for their cutting?  An even better idea is a handmade cutting board custom engraved with their names and their wedding date on it.  Functional, useful, memorable and definitely eye catching.  Don’t buy a cutting board that is plain.  Buy one that has color and that resonates with you based on what you’ve come up with as their idea of decor through their wedding registry.  Brilliant!
