I haven’t had much time to sit down and write blog posts like I used to. But, I hope that I’ll make some time soon. (Just pretend that you miss me. It’s good for my self-esteem.)
Anyhoo – here’s a peek at a gift I gave to a friend getting married this weekend. I just wanted to get her something small, and I think this would be a perfect gift for a shower. (I think I would pair this with some cooking utensils, measuring spoons and/or a cookbook.)
I think any gift with the bride’s new married name is fun, and all brides I know enjoy personalization. And, I just love aprons as gifts for brides-to-be. It’s something most women won’t often buy for themselves. I’ve been getting in the habit of buying or making a fun apron for all my women friends. My maid of honor gave me an adorable apron, and it was one of my favorite gifts. I use it all the time.
I actually (surprisingly) bought this set at the farm store, which is really handy since I had no free time to make one. And, the apron was adorable. Ruffles and buttons and pockets… But, I did embroider the letter on the towels and the name on the apron. *Patting myself on the back.*
I’m getting much better at working my embroidery machine. It’s such a great thing to have to make ho-hum gifts really sing.
So now you know what my favorite shower gift is –
Do you remember your favorite shower gift?
