These days couples prefer to receive banknotes as wedding gift rather than other presents, there is no problem with that. We can try to wrap it up in a creative way or we can attach something that makes the whole more personal.
We were invited to a couple’s wedding who are in love with our home made ketchup. Every time we meet they ask for a jar. It was obvious we were going to give them some ketchup on their big day, not only a jar but a little selection. Instead of ketchup you can think of jam, preserves, syrup, whatever homemade goodie with a relative long shelf life. It can be well personalised and it won’t take up place in their apartment for a very long time.
First step was to embellish the jars. I used some patterned fabric I had at hand and some twine. We made little labels saying “a little bit of happiness”, a little bit of laughter” etc.
