Gift Wrapping a la Natural!

Tomorrow Z and I are off to a wedding for some friends of ours. I hate just giving "typical" gifts, so here's what I put together this time around:
  • A warm fuzzy bedding blanket from their registry
  • His & Her books, that we just know they'll love (add will definitely enrich their marriage!)
  • Some Godiva Hot Cocoa
  • A basket that's similar to one on their registry (the store was fresh out of the exact one they wanted)
To tie it all together I placed everything in the basket, surrounded by some recycled brown paper gift filler. Then I even tried my hand at making them a card, and attached it to the handle with some grossgrain ribbon.
Hope they like it! It's going to be a beautiful day for a wedding. Have a wonderful weekend!

That is such a perfect gift. I always like to make it a little more personal than just wrapping up an item on the registry. It's lovely!
