Ice cream machine
Think twice before putting this oversized gizmo on your list. “An ice cream machine can be a lot of fun because you have the chance to customize your flavors and wow your guests when you entertain with some gourmet homemade ice cream,” says Courtney Geigle, co-founder of My Wed Style of Marina Del Rey, California. “However, think about your lifestyle,” he says, “Most people either want ice cream right away, and that’s why having a box in the freezer is so great, or else they make going out for a cone a special outing.” We guarantee you’ll never regret getting these DIY wedding gifts from your close friends; drop a hint by sending them the link!
Many large serving platters
Once people get married they think they’ll have to host every holiday at their place. “The truth is that this is rarely the case, and even so, registering for 10 huge serving platters is a little over the top,” Geigle says. “Not only does it take up a massive amount of space when stored, but you’ll find that they’re difficult to arrange on your dining room table.” Opt instead for modular pieces or multiple medium-sized pieces. “That way you can even divide the stuffing into two bowls and place them on different ends of the table instead of having one huge bowl,” he adds.
