Sunday I was invited to my friends wedding shower. It was her second marriage, and she’s in her mid-40’s. I needed gift ideas for wedding showers, and I admit, the ONLY thing that came to mind was lingerie.
Had this been her 1st wedding, it would have been much easier to decide what to buy. After all, hundreds of different gift ideas come to mind: stoneware mixing bowls and batter bowls, Circulon or Calphalon cookware sets, Cuisinart food processor, Pasquini or Krups Espresso machines, Waterford or Swarovski crystal serving bowls, martini glasses, Nambe serving platters, etc etc etc.
As my friend opened ALL 42 gifts, I knew that I had made the right decision … black silk with black pearls, sequins and intricate embroidery lingerie and matching robe set.
She did, in fact, receive the usual (over 10 pairs of risqué outfits which I seriously question if she’ll ever have the guts to try on in front of her new husband) and the not-so-usual metal dog bowl for her new pooch.
My advice: choose an elegant and beautiful lingerie and matching robe set which will be worn frequently and each time as my friend prepares for a special and intimate evening … she will think of me (at least for 1 second).
