Probably, few people give various rakes, kitchen tools and tableware on the occasion of a wedding anymore, in my eyes it has long been deleted from the gift lists. It might sound egotistical, but I think flowers and an envelope are the optimal solution.
With this in mind, we indicated in the wedding invitations that the best gift fits in an envelope and asked the guests not to give various household items, because we don’t need anything, we already have everything before our eyes and we don’t want to burden ourselves.
When the greetings started at the celebration, we see that friends are coming carrying the biggest box, we thought, maybe they came up with something original, because they are our long-time friends, they really know what we like and what we don’t.
The day after the wedding we got ready to look at the gifts and of course we started with the gift from our friends, but we were wondering what was in such a big box when all the other gifts were quite small.
I never thought that after unpacking we would see a box… with pots. My husband and I looked at each other and we were both speechless. A really surprising gift, but maybe not in a pleasant way. Don’t think I’m some ungrateful brat who doesn’t appreciate people’s efforts, but I’m very disappointed…
It seems that people didn’t even bother to read what was written in the invitation, after all, we asked them not to give such things… Of course, we thanked our friends, we also laughed that the gift was very surprising and we really didn’t expect it, and we have so many pots at home that we could every day of the week produce using each other.
But I still don’t understand, even if we didn’t specify in the invitation, don’t such gifts really come alive? Maybe it just seems to me that no one gives such things anymore, I don’t understand anymore.
