Are you looking for a unique & meaningful shower gift for someone you love?  My favorite gift to give a bride-to-be is a collection of family recipe cards.  In the past I have found adorable printable recipe cards on Etsy and I have also designed my own from time to time.  I love that you can use printable recipe cards over and over again!  You can either print the recipe cards out blank and then hand-write the recipes, or you can copy and paste your recipe right onto the card and then print it out (see below).

Family Recipe Cards

Before the shower I usually ask any friends & family who are attending to email me a recipe, and then I print them all out on these super cute cards and then put them in a pretty recipe box (there’s a huge selection of recipe boxes on  These recipe boxes are always met with appreciation and happiness.  I also make sure to include recipes from special relatives who aren’t with us anymore, like Nana…I always add in a few of her favorite recipes just to keep her memory alive & pass along her traditions.
If you are interested in printable recipe cards or recipe boxes be sure to visit Etsy!  I bought this featured box from Country Barn Babe on Etsy.  It was met with rave reviews.  This does not have to be a wedding shower gift, I feel like family recipe cards are a perfect gift for any occasion.
