Your best friend is getting married. You need to think of a present. Something meaningful. Something unusual. Something no one has ever thought of before! Possibly one of the hardest things to do. I don’t know about you guys, but buying birthday presents for friends is something I find to be very challenging. If I am going to give a present, it should mean something otherwise what’s the point? You can just imagine what happens when it’s time to decide on a wedding present! Many of my friends never got one (sorry guys! now you know why!) -I just never found the right thing.
There is loads of inspiration out there -like on Pinterest that should make life easier! Alas, we all are quite familiar with Pinterest fails so unless we know for sure that we can do it- we are too scared to try it!
Some people are easy to buy presents for because they are certain kind of people, there is no need to second guess what they may/may not like.
They may be hipsters.
They might be coffee loving people. Via
They may be Breaking Bad kinda people.Via
Or the kinds who love all things pretty.Via
They could just be regular people .
In the end though, you just want some really really special to give! Last year, The Unreal Bride worked on a special present for one of our cousins wedding. The project was to make a cookbook with the family’s favourite recipes accompanied by some beautiful food photos. We have worked with food before and it’s fun but we really didn’t fathom the enormity of this project. Somehow though, we managed and the book looked fabulous. This post is an introduction to the wedding present project of the year – expect lots of food photos and maybe some recipes if you want! To give you an idea of what I am talking about- this photo shoot we did for Ketchup Bags was around the time we were shooting for the cookbook!
What is the most creative present you have ever given anyone? Tell us! We would love to know!
