I drew the groom-to-be as my giftee, but I don't know him very well! Given that, I decided to stray from the funny gifts and instead focus on something nice for their newlywed home.
I keep seeing these "Family Established" signs on pinterest and etsy, and I got one for my parents 30th anniversary last year. The pre-made ones are beyond the $10 price range, but I thought surely I could make something similar for less!

I decided to print out the sign on cardstock and display it in a nice frame with a mat surrounding it.
First I used my awesome powerpoint skills to create the wording. I went through lots of fonts and placement for the words (haven't you heard how I'm not actually creative, I just use trial and error tenaciously?), and finally decided on an aesthetically pleasing arrangement.
Then I took my 40% off coupon to the craft store and found a pretty frame that already included a mat.
I stuck my cardstock in the frame, made sure it was straight, and voila! Beautiful Christmas newlywed gift for under $10!
