I have a bit of a ‘thing’ about wedding gift lists – so when a creative, thoughtful and brilliantly affordable idea comes along, I get excited.
Foodies especially will love this idea, but it’s equally perfect for those of you who aren’t blessed in the kitchen department (and we’re not talking toasters!) – basically all of your friends and family contribute their favourite recipe, and they’re all bound up into a lovely quality book for you to keep forever.
I wish I could have one of these… I’ve kept a few of my Grandma’s recipes but they’re floating around on sheets of paper I lose all the time… also, I have some friends who I imagine are secret foodies, genius bakers and health junkies, all of whom I’d love to have a recipe from! Other friends, I suspect, would sneak in a joke recipe or two – which would crack me up. A perfect, genius, all-round idea.
Recipe Gift Book avoids the issues of ‘how do you ask for money’, it lets everyone give something special, and still has a really traditional feel to it – no one will be offended, feel out of pocket or struggle to think of what to get you. Perhaps this isn’t meant as an alternative to a wedding gift list… but you know what, I think it should be. I’d have this as my one and only wedding gift list, with perhaps a music version to go with it! (Someone should totally invent that too…)

Disclaimer: Recipe Gift Book sent me a wooden spoon in the post. It’s not why I’m featuring them, I genuinely think their idea is amazing! But I was short of spoons and I love theirs 🙂 So thank you!
