Here’s a few that any bride, June or not, will be glad to open at her wedding:

Young couples have a lifetime of entertaining ahead of them, and it pays to have a serving dish that they can use for cheese, fruit, or other yummy snacks during celebrations. A classic wooden block makes for a great choice, as it can also be used in the kitchen as a chopping board. You can get this round chopping board from Knots And Pans.

A woven basket

You’d never think to give a hamper as a wedding gift, but a woven version or wicker or abaca will make you think again. These sturdy baskets give off a tropical vibe, bringing sunny memories of beach vacations inside the home. The best part is they’re not limited in their purpose—they can also be used as a chic storage option in any part of the home. Find similar baskets at Habitat.
