Darcy's Diary: The Best Last-Minute Wedding Gifts
Our Editor-at-Large, Darcy Miller, rounded up her favorite last-minute gift ideas, because no one wants to be the person who gives a collection of mismatched items that were left on the registry.
Let's face it: We all let things get down to the wire sometimes, and that even includes purchasing a wedding gift. When there's nothing left on the couple's registry, what are you supposed to do? Here, some of my favorite ideas for those last-minute gift-getting times!
An Instant Photo Camera
Instant photos are fun for any event. Fujifilm's Instax camera, above, is perfect for engagement parties, showers, weddings and after parties and it comes in an extra-celebratory gold color! Thanks to Amazon Registry, couples can ask for fun and unexpected gifts in addition to traditional housewares.
A Multi-Purpose Pizza Stone
Whether your couple added this All-Clad pizza stone to their registry or not, it's a fun gift that will come in handy at home. While it's naturally perfect for making-you guessed it!-pizza, they're also great for making s'mores and other treats!
A Toasting Set
You'll have a lot to toast in the coming years, so why not toast with this Mr. & Mrs. champagne coupes from Kate Spade? Package them up with an ice bucket to match for the most thoughtful wedding gift yet.
A Sparkling Water Machine
One of the staples in my kitchen is our SodaStream-once you have one, you're hooked! You can make countless bottles of sparkling water and can even add flavors. The SodaStream Power Metal, which is available in this sleek white metal, will look fabulous in any kitchen.
A Gift That Gives Back
Giving back is always in! Registering for a charity is a gift that is always well appreciated and with The Good Beginning, you can choose to donate to any cause-you don't even have to tie the donation to a specific organization.
A Calligraphy Kit
There are many things that will need great penmanship surrounding your wedding from invitations, placecards, and menus all the way to your thank-you notes. Maybelle's Belle Calligraphy Starter Kit will come in handy for now and will then be a skill you'll have and hone over the years to come.
