A Well-Used Wedding Present

Do you have wedding presents that you still use often? At least once a week or more?

I was wondering about this the other day when I filled our coffee carafe. DH and I don't like to let the coffee sit on the burner once it's made. So when we are not running out the door in the morning the coffee gets poured into the carafe and sits on the counter. The carafe will keep the coffee hot for several hours. The carafe matches our casual china - Garden Harvest from Mikasa.

I don't know what I would do if we ever broke the carafe. I love my carafe.

I do have one other wedding gift I use every day (or at least every day I'm in the kitchen). That is a kitchen knife set. It sits on the counter and every time I need to slice, dice, chop or cut I reach for one of the knives.

Tell me about a wedding you use nearly every day. Do you have any wedding gifts you still use?

Sweet P

I have a set of pyrex dishes which were a wedding gift almost 21 years ago .... I use them every day - rice in the microwave for the big one and vegetables in the smaller ones.

After 21 years of use they still look brand new.

We have 2 set of Pyrex mixing bowls one received as a shower gift and the other as a wedding gift that we still use regularly. They are now in their 30th year of service and still going strong *s*

I still use the set of 4 Pyrex bowls that every bride received either for a shower of\r wedding gift almost 50 years ago. They were yellow, green, blue and red.
I couldn't get along without them.
