Hiya,
I have seen some great poems that people have used for their gift lists but never saved them anywhere- has anyone got one that they don't mind sharing? I want to include one with my invitations.

Thanks

I would share mine with you, but it has been deleted off the computer! Good on hubby for cleaning up the desktop. But we do have a hard copy somewhere, I just can't get to it at the mo. Will msg it to you when I get a free hand. However I just googled gift poems and we chose one that we liked.

money ones ????

heres a few i have saved

If you were thinking of giving a gift, to help us on our way.
A gift of cash towards our house, would really make our day.
However, if you prefer to purchase a gift, feel free to surprise us in your own way.

An Ode to the Gift List

In a wedding invitation,
You usually find some lists,
For venues, menus and hotels,
And also for the gifts

But this one is unusual,
It comes in a different way,
As we're not asking for presents,
But for something else today

Now please don't think we're selfish,
Or that this comes from greed,
But we've lived together for a while,
So there's not that much we need

We would appreciate help though,
To send us on our way,
And allow us to have our honeymoon,
In a land quite far away

So now the point of all this rhyme,
The thing that we would like,
Isn't towels, toasters or microwaves,
But pounds and pence alike

And now you know the reason,
Behind this cheeky accord,
Please help to give us memories,
Of a dream honeymoon abroad

---------------------------------------------------------

For a couple of years we’ve lived in sin,
we have a toaster, a kettle and a stainless steel bin,
saucepans and towels we have many,
corkscrews and flannels we don’t need any,
we just want you with us to celebrate our day,
but if you insist on a gift anyway,
What we’d really like is a gift of money,
we hope you don’t think we’re being funny!
We’ll put it all together and buy something that’s best,
as a reminder of our day and our wonderful guests
--------------------------------------------------


We know it's not traditional
It's not the way it's done
But instead of a wedding list
We'd like a bit of sun.

Please do not think of us as rude
Please do not take offence
We do not want to upset you
That's not the way it's meant.

We've lived together quite a while
And all the bills are paid
We've got our plates, our pots and pans
Our plans have all been made.

So if you'd like to give a gift
To help us celebrate
Some money for a honeymoon
We would appreciate

--------------------------------------------------------

WE HAVEN'T GOT A WEDDING LIST
THE REASONS WE'LL EXPLAIN
IT'S TO SAVE YOU ALL THE HASSLE
AS SHOPPING IS A PAIN

WE THOUGHT WE'D ASK YOU ALL
FOR SOMETHING ELSE INSTEAD
A SMALL CONTRIBUTION
FOR US TO TAKE A HOLIDAY IN THE MED

SO IF YOU'D LIKE TO CONTRIBUTE
TOWARDS OUR HONEYMOON
WE OFFER YOU OUR HEART FELT THANKS
WITH LOVE THE BRIDE AND GROOM

-----------------------------------------------------








We are sending out this invitation
In hope you will join a celebration
But if a gift is your intention
May we take this opportunity to mention
We have already got a kettle and toaster
crockery, dinner mats, and matching coasters
so rather than something we have already got
We would appreciate money for our honeymoon pot
But most importantly we request
That you come to our wedding as our guest

Thanks, they are great- and so true as we have lived together for 9 years!

I am trying to persuade H2B to have a small gift list somewhere for those guests that are a bit more 'traditional' and will want to buy us something specific...anyone got any for a gift list?

Thanks

This is my one but again it was for vouchers/cheques which I made up but it was based on other ones so you can just make your own words fit.

We haven’t got a wedding list, the reason we’ll explain,
we have doubles of everything, and our home is bursting with the strain!
So we shall need new furniture eventually for our new bigger nest,
John Lewis, Debenhams vouchers or a cheque would quite honestly be best.
We hope you are not offended as this really wasn’t intended
But, if you’d like to contribute, to our soft and cosy rooms,
Our heartfelt thanks go out to you - with love the Bride & Groom x
