Shower gift ideas?

We're invited to a couples wedding shower for a young couple. The invitation asks for gifts to help them stock their bar or gifts used to entertain and have fun as their married life begins. I know one couple is giving them a "Rabbit" wine opener. Do you have any other gift ideas for us? Thank you in advance! mary

  1. There are tons of things you can buy them. It depends on how much you want to spend. Do you know what they like to drink? A few ideas: you can buy them all the makings for their favorite cocktail, high-end booze, a nice liqueur, a set of bartending tools, a great bottle of wine or a case of wine, a decanter, or a set of liqueur glasses.

    1. I went to a "stock the bar" shower where everyone brought wine and random glassware and the couple was bummed. What they really wanted was for people to bring liquor and mixers so they would indeed have a stocked bar for future parties. They had already registered for all glasses and bar items, as most people do.

      Two options: get them alcohol and mixers OR something bar-related from their registry.

      1. Thank you for both suggestions. I will find out what they like and buy a high end liquor for them, or maybe a "margarita" basket with all the ingredients for those.
