engagement gift question, take 2
A girl I met through one of my friends recently got engaged. I have met the bride a grand total of two times- once at our friend's bridal shower which I hosted, and once at a post-wedding party for my friend and her husband (that's at the Sheva Brachot, for all my Jewish readers), which she hosted. We are not exactly BFF. I have met her fiance a grand total of zero times. Clearly this is a couple that is very near and dear to my heart. She invited me to their engagement party next weekend. Judging by the fact that 1) the invitation was a "secret" one so non-invited guests wouldn't see it and 2) the small amount of invited guests, it looks like she actually wants me there and isn't just sending out an invitation to every single person that she has ever met. Even though I'm not exactly close with the bride, I make it a point to attend functions to which I'm invited unless I have a prior engagement, and am free on the day of their party so I will be attending. My question is, what do you get a couple that you know absolutely nothing about? I know both of their names, where the bride went to college, where she lives now, and that she makes really good cheesecake. And not much else. I know that I don't want to get them a wedding planning book because they most likely will not use it.
