For around $30 you can send the happy couple address labels from www.familylabels.com.
This web service customizes address labels with little cartoon images of
the senders. You can choose the skin, hair, and eye color, as well as
hairstyle and other special features; there's even a pet option for
those sickening couples who added a puppy or kitty to the family
pre-marriage! This gift is especially appropriate for couples that are
buying a new home. Cheesy? Just a tad, but that's part of the fun of it
— and when you think of all the thank-you cards the couple will have
to send, the gift is sure to come in handy. These cute labels offer a
creative way for the thank-you card receivers to have the new address
and enjoy a laugh as well.
Most couples enjoy movies, as well as spending cozy nights canoodling,
or whatever just-married people do. No movie night is complete without
popcorn, and no popcorn beats homemade popcorn. You can buy a good
popcorn popper for under $20. Add a nice deep popcorn bowl, a handbook
for interesting popcorn recipes, and/or a gift card to Blockbuster and
you've got a great indoor date night package for the couple to enjoy
long after the honeymoon.
