The "how much $$ would you give thread" got me thinking. What was a non-monetary wedding gift you received that was memorable or unexpected? Or maybe something you are surprised that you still use everyday? One of my closest college friends (sorority little sis, roommate, and bridesmaid) went off-registry and gave us a set of four beautiful 3-piece placesettings, which I use for breakfast or luncheon get-togethers. I adore that set and think of her every time I use it. Some other surprises that are still in heavy use even after more than 20 years...Christmas china, a pasta serving bowl and dish set, a crockpot (I'd never even used one before but use it frequently, pink ceramic bowl and all, lol!), and a Good Housekeeping cookbook.
