Gift Guide for Cheaper, but Still Meaningful, Wedding Gifts

That Mug Set is too adorable! :)

Liviania said...

The mug set is cute, but it looks like the girl cup holds less liquid, which just isn't on. (Also, how hard would it be to drink from?)

....Petty Witter said...

Oh my goodness, I'd love those mugs. And yes they ship to the UK but at great cost ..... Drat!

Brandi Kosiner said...

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

I really like the baseball. Too cute!

Eileen said...

Can I make my future husband buy me those heart-shaped mugs? They're so adorable and I love the soup container with the pocket for the crackers. All of these gifts are so adorable and really thoughtful and I kind of love them all, and a baseball would so be perfect for a sporty couple :)

Fantastic list! Thanks for sharing :)

The mug set is super cute! Though the girl cup is smaller? Not fair! ;) I also really like those glass coasters, even though I've never bought coasters in my life. Thanks for sharing as always!

I love that first mug set! All of these are great though. And even though I'm not into ball I really love that ball at the end, very creative and unique! I have a friend getting married early next year, I needed some ideas for their gift!

Lil Berry said...

I don't care if I'm not married and 100% I fell in love with the mug with a slot for crackers, I might get it you know that way I get a spare :P
Thank you for this post and sorry for sounding so... forever alone :P
