Gift Ideas for the Bride to Be

Something borrowed, something blue, something old, and something new…

These are things the bride needs for the big day, but when it comes to buying a wedding or shower gift, what do you get her? Many customers come into the store looking for shower gifts for a bride to be. This blog will give you a few ideas of the neat gifts you can purchase at The Carrot Seed. Also remember to tell the bride she can register at The Carrot Seed, which would make it even easier for you to know what to get her.

1. Here are three great wedding/shower gift ideas.The first gift idea is a tin of wooden spoons. If you are an artsy person and love Pinterest this is the option for you! Gather up a group of friends, (or just you can get creative too) and come up with some marriage advice. Then, write the marriage tips or quotes on wooden spoons that you purchased at The Carrot Seed and put them in a tin. Pictured below is what is this looks like. This was a shower gift for one of my friends and she displays it decoration in her kitchen. Each person that attended that particular bridal shower wrote a little something on a wooden spoon. I read some of them and they vary from practical to silly advice!

2. The second gift idea is a recipe keeper. What makes the recipe keeper so unique? The bride will be able to store and organize recipes from the Internet or clipped from her favorite magazine. Best of all, the recipe keeper can stand in upright position, making it easy user friendly and less prone to get spilled on. (I know what you are thinking. You want to get one too. Great idea! Then, you can tell the bride how much you love it.) The Carrot Seed also has recipe cards and boxes in all sorts of different colors, shapes and sizes.

3. The third gift idea is a wine box. I think the benefits of this gift are pretty self-explanatory. I mean, what bride wouldn’t want wine for a gift? The Carrot Seed sells a few different wine box options. The first is a single wine box that says, “Best Day Ever,” on it. The second is a black single wine box where you can write your own personal message in chalk. The third box option is a wine box that holds three wine bottles, a bottle to open up on their first, second, and third anniversaries. Although we don’t sell wine at The Carrot Seed, the Pheasant Restaurtant & Lounge in Brookings or Schadé Vineyard & Winery in Volga are great places to purchase wine.

Norwegian Lese 101 | 10/27/16 Cooking Class

Lefse 101

This is a hand-on class with a lefse expert. You will see how to prepare lefse dough and then work together to prepare lefse on a grill. Tickets can be purchased for the class only or with supplies to take home. The instructor recommends the traditional aluminum grill for nice lefse browning though some prefer the premium non-stick finish for easy lefse removal. The starter kit includes one large round pastry board with washable cloth, one 2.75″ by 17.25″ corrugated rolling pin, two washable rolling pin covers, one 7/8″ x 24″ turning stick, and two lefse mixes (just add butter and water).

Class starts at 6:30 p.m. on 10/27. You will be able to bring some lefse home with you. Attendees will receive a 10% off coupon for purchases that evening. Class size limited to 10 people. Classes will take place inside the store at 312 Main Ave, downtown Brookings.
