Useful Gifts Under $50

A review from SportBikeStan on "I wanted microwave, oven, & refrigerator safe cookware. I was pleased with my previous history with Pyrex. Wanting to avoid plastic's off-chemicals (BHA), I have searched for glass cookware with glass lids. I tried Anchor-Hocking's, & found the lids rocked without a seal. A-H were heavy."

      @gottaloveit2: I agree. I'm very practical, so try to think about what the couple needs and buying something they will actually use rather than some gee gaw that gets put away and they never use.

      Love the lens. I think wedding gifts are getting way too grand these days - it's about celebrating the day, not showering the couple with $200 place settings for a table. I love to give romantic music in a gift basket with a bottle of champagne too.
