So you’re attending another wedding. While it’s lovely to watch your friends or members of your family finally start their journey down the road of matrimony, preparing for the event can be a doozy. Among the most troubling parts of prep? Finding the right gift.
You might have found yourself giving away the iconic his-and-hers towel sets every time you’ve had to attend one of these events.
