IT'S OUR, I MEAN, MER'S WEDDING WEEK!!!!
And I have a major confession. I’ve been completely wracking my brain trying to figure out what to get Mer and Ry. You’d think that being so close to someone would make it easy to know what to get them, but the total opposite is true for me. And for some reason, simply buying off the registry does not feel right (even though I’m well aware that that’s what it’s there for).
I pulled together the following gift guide in hopes that it will inspire all of you out there who are in the thick of wedding season. Enjoy!
A custom watercolor of the couple on their wedding day by Cincinnati native, Peggy McGrath of Whodrew.
Pour a custom candle scent for the couple (and give it a cute name) at The Candle Lab
An Ohio cutting board from Mica 12/v with a knife set off their registry
Custom stationery from M. Hopple
For the couple that likes to go on runs together, map a Running Date Night.
Plot out a running tour, complete with a map and gift cards to each stop.
Custom Wooden Sign by Cincinnati Etsy Shop, JK Woodcrafts
Concert or Broadway Show Tickets (even better, upgrade them to VIP!)
Donate to their favorite charity in their honor, or plan a day of giving for you and your friends post wedding.
