My walking partner, Debbie, told me about the cutest gift idea. The Ironing Board Lady makes the ideal kitchen shower present.
Purchase the bride an ironing board and dress in a bib style apron. Get creative with building her upper body: perhaps a splatter cover for her face, rolled towels for her arms, dishwashing gloves for her hands, mop hair and plastic scrubber pad eyes.
A heart cookie cutter becomes a clever mouth and she carries a bouquet of kitchen tools in an upside down grater. Use cheese cloth or netting, the kind that would cover a dish at a picnic, as her veil.
This little lady will be the life of the party and all her parts will come in handy when setting up a home.
What a fun gift to give and receive.
Special thanks to Debbie and her sister Donna for this tip.
