Doesn’t it always seem like wedding shower gifts (and many wedding gifts themselves) are more geared to what the home-decorating and kitchen-oriented spouse will enjoy? How about speaking up for the member of the family who cares more about function over form? There just might be the perfect shower gift waiting for them at www.poladora.com, the consolidated wedding registry of local Chicago stores.
Not to be cliche but let’s start off with the perfect gift for many a guy — a gift certificate from the Wine Discount Center. It can be used at any of their Chicago-area locations and also has the added benefit of getting your spouse (and maybe you too) out of the house for a few hours while they browse the aisles for some bottles to stock your cellar.
And what guy doesn’t enjoy a great yoga stretch or a therapeutic rubdown, both of which can be obtained through Poladora purchased gift certificates from Yogaview or Urban Oasis. You can even arrange a couples session for that Yoga Class or Massage — something you can both enjoy together! And when your man gets home, he can relax in a Adjustable Lounge Chair ($540) from Sawbridge Studios that offers comfort with a traditional Arts & Crafts feel.
If your guys likes to spend time with Man’s best friend, how about a Dog Bone Ornament Frame ($23.50 from Crosell & Co.) containing a photo of Fido to hang in his office? Or, register for the best gift of all — a Taste of Chicago from Provenance which will keep you out of the kitchen and able to spend more time together and how can there be a better wedding shower gift than that?
