If you want to help guide ungrateful lummoxes like me into more appropriate gift-giving, West Meade Wine and Liquor Mart has come up with a solution for you with their new gift registry. If you're planning a wedding shower or stock the bar party, all you have to do is email WMWLM at email@example.com to get the process started.
You'll then get to take a magical shopping trip to the wine store where you can pick out your favorite wines, spirits and high-gravity beers with the assistance of a store employee. Then your invited guests can visit the same website and pick out a present for the event. What could be simpler?
When I shop at an online wedding registry, I try to choose something unique rather than just the fifth dinner plate of a set of a couple of hand towels. I like to pick kitchen utensils so that we can share a mutual interest to celebrate the occasion. Once I picked a toilet paper roll holder off of the gift list so that the bride and groom would be reminded of me at least once a day. Ewwww. But they were the ones who added it to the registry.
In the end, I think wine and booze make a lot more sense for a celebratory gift, so why not take advantage of this new service from West Meade?
