Ideas for a DIY wedding gift?

by DIY wedding planner on December 8, 2011

My brother is getting married and im really close to them both so I wanted to get them a gift abit different with abit of humor. So my idea was to make a huge basket of goodies-like a newlywed kit. Was wondering what ideas anybody has got to add to it?
Thank you!

Make sure you give them a card with some money in it to

yeah if your a grown up attending this wedding you definitly need to give a card with monetary gift too. If your just a kid a DIY gift by itself is fine. I would put cleaning supplies and things like aluminum foil and zip lock baggies and instead of a basket how bout you put it in a storage tote. This is perfect because new couples starting out dont realize how fast they go threw this stuff

If the couple has a good sense of humor, you can put together a funny newlywed kit.

Newlywed quit includes:

-A giant remote control (check dollar general, about $5.00)
-Air freshener
-A bottle of Tylenol
-A pillow that says on one side “not tonight” and “tonight” on the other
-A rolling pin
-A dog leash

Good luck

PS/ Do give them a real gift afterward.

Bottle of wine, wine glasses, candy, a cookbook, a framed picture of them when they first met, a cute set of dish towels or napkins,
