Wedding Shower Gift?

We are having a totally fabulous, relaxing weekend. Just got another invite to the lake next weekend, which should also be a nice distraction after the test on Friday. Problem is, I will also need to attend a Jack-and-Jill wedding shower for the daughter of a family friend I don't know well. What's the best wedding shower gift you ever got, or saw someone else get?

Thank you, by the way, for the supportive comments on my last post. They have helped get me through the weekend.

Wedding shower gift... hmm, my fave was a crazy industrial blender, since I'm a smoothie/margarita maniac. But it really is so personal, I mean, I'm weird.

Oh, and there was this really beautiful ornate huge crystal vase that I will never forget. I kicked it over the next day and it shattered to pieces, before I ever had a chance to use it!

I like getting people something that we would buy for ourselves. The smoothie/margarita maker would be one of those items. I went to a wedding shower Memorial Day weekend for my SIL and we bought her a waffle maker that she had on her registry. It was a new model that's out. It looks really nice. I also bought the "Debbie Meyer green bags" for the Wishing Well. I bought a box for myself too and they do really work!

Some of my favorite wedding gifts from people who didn't know us well were gift cards to restaurants. We were about to go out on someone else's dime and it also got us to try out new restaurants we had never been to.

We had the surprise of receiving some hotel gift cards, so that when we wanted to take a little getaway somewhere (and we were young, so we really had no money), we had over two nights' worth of hotel gift cards to cash in. That was an awesome gift! I understand, though, that some people are not into giving gift cards, so it's just a suggestion!

I have no idea...I don't think I had a shower and my gifts are usually lame.
But I'm glad you had a good weekend and hope next weekend is nice too!
