This story reminds me of hearing about some people who’d that requested on their wedding invitation for food gifts, along with stating their wedding gift registry—I was single then & thought it crazy, but nowadays I think more young kids Should do that. However, while I’m not brave enough to bring a case of veg or soup, I do put 1-2 cake mixes in a baking pan along with handmade hot-pads & dishcloths and a cake spatula in place of a bow.SandiSAHM wrote: ↑Tue Aug 06, 2019 9:10 pmNot me, but I thought it was interesting: DH's grandfather (he'd be 99 now if he hadn't died at 96), around 20 years ago, gave my BIL four cans of tuna at the family gift exchange.
Rolled in a brown grocery bag.
I miss him. He was so practical
BIL was a little weirded out, but I'm sure in GFIL's (grandfather in law) mind 4 cans of food was a great gift. Something useful and tasty.
That was the year DH learned never to give me a kitchen appliance or tool for a holiday or birthday. He's well trained now
