This past weekend we were invited to a couple's bridal shower for my husband's cousin and we had a wonderful time. The wedding is in a few months and the couple now has a fully stocked kitchen!
The reason I am sharing this with you is that they had a wonderful process for how the gifts were opened. At the beginning of the shower, each participant (or couple) was asked to share a memory of the couple. When it was time to open the gifts, one of the bridesmaids read the stories aloud and the couple had to guess who it was - then open their gift.
It was nice way to get to know the couple and some of the stories were quite entertaining!
