    So my sister is getting married very soon and for the longest time I had no idea what to get them for a wedding gift. At first I though I would just give them cash, and I was going to, but then it hit me.

    What about a Wii? My nephew is 4 and my niece is 1, in due time they will be able to play video games. Both my sister and future brother in-law like video games (bother in-law has a 360, sister loves Mario party and Mario kart) so I though this would make an excellent gif for both them and the kids

    What do you think? To impersonal for a wedding gif? Or just fine?

    Is their registry at EB Games? If so, then yes.

    But I don't know. It sounds like a pretty good idea based on what you've said though. If you're really not sure, maybe just ask them?

    Why would you expect a newly married woman to go on a Caribbean holiday for two with someone who's not the husband? Sorry John, but that's just a weird thing to expect.

    get something that they as a couple will both like. if i get married and someone gives me a present for my kid, that certain someone won't be leaving the ceremony alive. now...if it was a wii that you could toast bread in, then we have a real winner.

    Based on what you've described, I think it'd be a great wedding gift. You won't be like all the other mindless drones going out to get something like a toaster. I also think it would be a lot more personal because instead of being a standard wedding gift, it will be something that you're getting to cater to their specific interests.

    I think Arse was also joking.

    Am I the only one who saw the joke straight away and lol'd? Ah well...

    My initial response to the question was "HELL YES!" but then again if they've done the usual boring couple thing and picked out matching china or whatever the hell you're supposed to do when you're getting married then you might want to do some subtle scouting out first. I mean, if it was me and Steve we'd be more than happy with a console as a wedding gift - as it was the first thing we bought ourselves after getting married was an eff-off huge telly and a 360. In hindsight perhaps something to sit on or eat off in our new house would have been a more sensible investment but who needs food when you're playing Oblivion and Gears of War marathons, amirite?

    HECK YES...if you buy someone a video game console as a gift and they dislike it, there's something wrong with their brain wiring....or they're REALLY not into video games.

    Fruitcake works.

    My uncle brings fruitcake to every single celebration, every year. He even gives out chunks of fruitcake to kids on Halloween (not sure if that's a trick or a treat), and insists that if you're not going to eat them then at least use them as decor or a useful item around the house (a la door stopper). Everybody keeps accepting them every damn time, so seems like a good enough gift... they're even fun to throw around.

    Oh, but yeah.. I guess Wii works too.

    You see t'was a most fiendish play on words. "To marry" someone can both mean marrying your significant other as well as the act of marrying two people to each other.

    Dastardly clever.
