Looking for unique wedding gift ideas for a couple that has everything.........including boatloads/tons of money. :lol: :lol:
I saw some really nice butcher block cutting boards. They can be engraved with the couples last name and wedding date. Thoughts??

Probably the only thing they wouldn't have or probably get themselves is something engraved or a goat.

Although this is Canadian, I'm sure they have in US. And of course there is need all over the world including our own countries.

Or an engraved cake knife; mine was actually a bread knife and I still use it.

Canadian goats are cheaper @ $75.
Our church has sought donations for Heifer International (http://www.heifer.org). Goats are $120.
Or a water buffalo at $250.

Kidding aside, I think this is a worthwhile consideration. They aim to make recipients more self-sufficient.
Smaller donations (partially funding an animal) and smaller animal contributions are possible.

I gave some wealthy friends a set of champagne glasses years ago. They still use them. I think something engraved is a great idea.

The engraved cutting board is great! They have wonderful engraved stuff like that on Groupon all the time. Check that out and save you some $$$$ I had to find a gift for a 2nd/3rd wedding for a couple and got them a personalized wooden wall hanging that had when their home was established and the scripture that happened to be on their wedding invitation. There are all kinds of unique personalized gifts out there, but check Groupon first! Good Luck!!!

Are they outdoor type of people? A friend of mine has an outdoor fire pit that has their name on it. Some sort of metal with the name cut out which looks cool with the fire light. There are some great corn hole boards that can be personalized - my cousin used to make them and they were awesome. Sport themed, coat of arms, Mr & Mrs., etc.

We gave him an outdoor fire pit for his 50th bday.
