If you're the bride to be, then give this checklist to all the guests you've invited at least a couple of months in advance so that they have enough time to plan and buy what you want. Make sure you pick a store that is easily accessible. Don't pick some obscure store that people will find difficult to locate. In fact, give them a map to the store. If you're a guest, you can personalize the gifts by having the initials of the couple engraved, embossed, inscribed, printed or embroidered on the gift items.
