Wow, in the last two years we have seen a lot of friends and family get married. So much so I'm running out of ideas for wedding gifts.
I like to get them something from their gift registry, but I'd also like to give them something personal that would also be useful. Recently I was reading Mary Hunt's Everyday Cheapskate newsletter and browsed her web site Tips and found a reader tip for creating a recipe book as a wedding gift. The reader was creating a wedding gift for her granddaughter, by gathering recipes from the family and using her computer to include a picture of person who originated the recipe. She then put the recipe cards in to sheets of a photo album.
What a wonderful way to pass along family recipes but to keep the memory family and friends that may no longer be with us.
I think I'm going to start this process now and have it ready for the next wedding.
Have a great Tuesday.
