"Be Yourself, Together" with Target Wedding- Sponsored Post

I am a Target fan. It is my go-to website for gifting across the miles and I can be found perusing my local store on any given day. One of my common gifting pursuits at Target is shopping for an ideal wedding gift for a special couple in my life. 

"Influencer Network asked me to talk to you about this year's Target Wedding theme, which is "Be Yourself, Together". I love that this theme celebrates the distinct personalities of each person in the relationship and combines to make something truly unique for the couple.

One of my favorite ways to personalize a couple's wedding gift is by choosing a gift they have chosen on their registry, choosing a stylish home storage basket to place the gift, then filling it with smaller favorite household gifts. Target Wedding makes this so easy and fun.

I went to my local Target store and shopped for a special engaged couple in my life. This is the gift basket I assembled for this couple.

Here is how I chose this gift basket:

-The couple chose this fun wall picture on their registry and I was immediately drawn to it as my gift choice. I love the sentiment! Target has such a collection of fun and functional wall art. 

-I then chose a home storage basket that would be large enough for the picture to be displayed in for gift-giving. Target has an amazing collection of stylist home storage baskets, a fun accessory in the home. I like to chose a basket in a brown color because I love the look when it is paired with so many other colors.  

-Since the picture has a fun shade of blue along with the classic brown, I chose to fill the basket with some of my fun household accessory picks in this shade of blue. I chose my go-to Target brand of kitchen towels, Room Essentials in a fun blue print as well as a classic blue towel. I also chose measuring cups, a can opener, tongs and baster to finish out the basket. This gift basket was a big hit with the couple. 

Among the countless possibilities available to register for at Target, here are my Top 5 Wedding Registry Picks:

1. KitchenAid Ultra Power 4.5 Qt Stand Mixer- KitchenAid has a brand reputation that has been passed down in my family for generations. This appliance is my top pick because it is a multi-use kitchen tool that can be used for countless cooking and baking projects with lasting durability and ease of use. 

2. Olde Thompson 16 Jar Spice Rack- This is not your mother's spice rack! I love this space-saving design and it comes complete with 16 go-to spices with easy-to-read labels.
3. Calphalon Kitchen Essentials Hard Anodized Non-Stick Cookware Set- I am a Calphalon fan because of the durability, non-stick ease and even-cook quality of this brand. 

4.Keurig Elite Single Cup Home Brewing System- I can't say enough about the convenience and the ease of a Keurig for coffee lovers. Endless possibilities allowing each cup to be a personalized cup of coffee.
5. Room Essentials Solid Kitchen Towel- Target's line of Room Essentials kitchen towels are my go-to towels for drying my dishes and glassware for in my opinion, one of the most important accessories in my kitchen. A soft yet durable kitchen towel that dries clean without lint residue and has a great price point.

  1. Target really does have some great gift ideas for weddings! We were registered there for ours, and got tons of great items!

  2. I love that spice rack. I definitely need to look for that!

  3. I honestly think the best wedding gift we got was a set of really good quality towels. We use them all the time and nearly 20 years later they still have not faded and aren't thin! If Keurigs had been around back then, I would have loved to have received one as a wedding gift!

  4. Those are some great ideas! A wedding gift that we received came in a laundry basket, wrapped in bath towels! Such a useful gift! :)
