one of my fave gifts when i got married was a cookbook/notebook one of my mom's friends made me. she compiled a bunch of recipes, including her famous christmas cookies, and gave it to me in a beautiful box. we were thinking some of the same, except a gift basket. maybe scour goodwill for some neat housewares, and then i was going to knit a few nice dishcloths and a couple 'tribble' scouring pads, and finally compile some of my fave recipes and put them into a similar cookbook/binder/notebook.
any other suggestions for a fun newlywed gift basket? handmade wedding gifts?
