Today’s gift suggestion is for a waffle maker or a griddler.  Instead of giving just the waffle maker, turn it into a “Weekend Brunch Basket” gift idea, just by adding in a few more items.

Cuisinart Griddlers are quite popular these days and they come with interchangeable plates.  So do a bunch of George Foreman Grills.  I really hope that the technology has improved, because the interchangeable system is a throw back to the system that existed back in the day.  It had some downsides.  The best example?  The grill plates would fall off.  Yup.  Flying waffle print!  There is a mark in the carpet at my in-law’s cottage from that very thing happening to my spouse’s grandma.

Waffle Maker as a Wedding Gift

Sticking to wedding gifts that are on the couple’s registry is by far the safest way to go.  Just because you’re buying a gift off of the registry doesn’t mean it needs to be boring or impersonal!  Check out the list of Registry Top Ups that have been compiled so far, to make any gift great.

Picking up even $20 worth of stuff from the below list and wrapping it up into a nice gift basket easily turns a wedding registry gift from potentially “boring” to thoughtful, creative and delicious!  Plus, you know that the gift is something the couple actually wants to have.

Tip: Remember to avoid anything perishable, as it may be awhile before the couple is able to put the basket to use!

What to Put in a Weekend Brunch Waffle Maker Gift Basket

When you think of a waffle breakfast, what comes to mind?

Add a selection of these to your gift basket and it will the star of the show at a wedding, bridal shower, or as a family gift idea.

Krups Breakfast Set Stainless Steel Waffle Maker 4 Slices Audible 'Ready' Beep, 1200 Watts Square, 5 Browning Levels, Removable Plates, Dishwasher Safe, Belgian Waffle Silver and Black

Waffle Maker

I like this waffle maker because it has 4 slots. There’s nothing worse than your waffles getting cold while waiting for your partner’s or family’s to cook so you can eat together!

Stonewall Kitchen Farmhouse Pancake & Waffle Mix, Net Wt. 16 oz.

Waffle Mix

Pick up a nice, gourmet waffle mix package, or consider making your own.  An Oregon Cottage has a tutorial for Cinnamon-Orange Pancake & Waffle Mix, or try Cheeky Kitchen’s Pecan Waffles Mix.

Maple Grove Farms Organic Pure Maple Syrup, Grade A Amber, 8.5 Ounce


There are oh-so-many varieties of delicious syrup!  Salmonberry? Apricot? Butter-flavoured? Pure Maple Syrup?  Pick one, or two, or three of your favourite syrups and add them in to the gift basket.

Assorted jams and spreads


We used to have Sunday afternoon waffle feasts in my house in university.  Chances were always good that the Nutella and the peanut butter made it on to the table, sometimes with jam as well.  Consider adding some of them in to your basket.

Consider picking up the coffee mugs or some side plates or a serving tray to go with the gift.  If you are including a bottle of champagne or sparkling juice, you could also pick up a pair of champagne flutes.

Grab a spatula, ladle, flipper, measuring cup or mixing bowl.  Perhaps you could pick up the tea towel.  If you opt for the mixing bowl, it will make a nice base for the gift basket.  A note on tea towels – pick the ones off of the registry, if there are any there.  Most couples end up with 10,000 tea towels as a result of wedding and shower gifts.

One day I will get around to taking more photographs of mock-up gift baskets, I swear.
