Wedding season is officially upon us! You're likely attending at least one wedding in the coming months, and if you're like me, you don't like to give cash or gift cards (although if you prefer giving those, I can tell you from experience that they are much appreciated). I like to search through the bride and groom's registry and find a creative gift that represents my relationship with them. Sometimes, however, that perfect gift just isn't on the registry, and while, in general, I strongly discourage purchases off the registry (for the love of God, include a gift receipt!), for these delicious gift boxes, I may have to make an exception to that rule.
With over 250 spices and seasonings, Penzey's Spices is a must-see for cooks of any skill level. However, when you're starting from scratch (ha, get it?) with your spice collection, all those options can be slightly overwhelming. Enter Penzey's gift boxes. They have a huge selection of four- and eight-jar boxes and gift crates, with prices ranging from $11.95 to over $200. Something for everyone!
Here are a few that I think make perfect wedding gifts.
Spicy Wedding Shower, $25.59
Includes four seasoning mixes perfect for pasta and veggies, meat on the grill, and even for Bloody Marys!
Spicy Wedding, $41.89
Like the Spicy Wedding Shower, comes nestled in big, beautiful bay leaves.
Deluxe Spicy Wedding, $69.95
We received this box as a wedding gift, and it was one of our favorites. The pepper mill and salt shaker are gorgeously simple, and like the two spicy wedding boxes above, it comes with traditional wedding charms, which is a lovely touch.
Herb 8 Jar, $28.49
One of Penzey's most popular gifts.
Baker's Assortment 9 Jar, $49.95
Perfect for the bride who loves to bake. She'll never go back to grocery store vanilla extract after using this Double Strength Madagascar Pure Vanilla Extract!
The Wedding Gift Crate, $119.95
This one is on the pricier side, but it has everything the newlyweds will need to keep their marriage - or at least their kitchen - appropriately spicy.
What's your favorite unique wedding gift, either that you've given or received?
