  1. Fav wedding gift is shares in an area of natural woodland. We're REALLY short of it here in the UK and as the couple can eventually gift their shares to their kids, it helps to keep some areas protected. www.woodsforall.org/tells you all about it.

  5. I like to give crystal candle sticks -- there's something so romantic and luxurious about crystal and I love the idea of the warmth lit candles bring into a home. They can use them for every special occasion, for romantic dinners on their dining table, for holidays, and all year round.

  6. congrats to your friend!! love the idea of sending love quotes!! :)

    well i usually just give something off the registry but i do like giving presents at least a month or two before the wedding. i remember we got really excited to see packages at our door wayy before our wedding! :) i love the idea of giving honeyfund gifts too (the couple must set up that registry), it's sort of like a gift certificate to an activity a couple can do on their honeymoon! :)
