• Tell Your Friends

Congratulations to our winner, Stacey, who says that the best wedding gift she ever gave was a margarita machine to a fun-loving couple. Check back next month for another great giveaway!

We are smack-dab in the middle of wedding season — one of our very own D-Happ writers is even tying the knot this summer. (Ahem, Briana!) Once you’ve crafted that summer wedding outfit, there’s one more thing to consider: the perfect gift. If you’re still searching for something to delight the happy couple, consider this month’s Freebie Friday giveaway: A Starbucks Verismo machine that will let them (or you!) create favorite coffee shop drinks at home.

Win a Starbucks Verisimo Machine From HGTV's Design Happens Blog

The Starbucks Verismo machine crafts single-serving sizes of the same espresso drinks and brewed coffee served in the company’s stores around the world. With the machine’s specially-formulated pods, you can make everything from lattes to mochas to Starbucks’ signature coffee blends — all in the comfort of your own home.

One lucky winner will receive a Starbucks Verismo 580 machine in their choice of hue: silver, black, burgundy or champagne.  The winner will also receive 12 espresso pods and 12 milk pods.

    Probably my most used wedding gift was a set of plastic water mugs that when I tried to replace them after several years of use – I couldn't find anything like them!!! I still miss them 30 years later!!

  3. Kelly says:

    A gas grill…it's gotten more use than any other gift we received!

  4. Caitie says:

    Best gift I received for our wedding was probably our honeymoon! All paid for and we didn't have a thing to worry about!

    Best gift we received (don't laugh) was a brand new (with a big white bow on top) Rubbermaid trash bin FULL (I mean full) of various tools (screwdrivers, hammer, tape measure, etc) and other household items that we still use to this day!

  6. I received a see-through toilet seat complete with plastic under water ocean scene animals and plants inside (it was hideous). The tag read "may this be your first of many returns"… Of course we kept it, it was such a fun addition to our bathroom!!

    We got a hardwood floor vacuum. I loved it and used it a couple of times a week. It made it easy to keep our floors clean.

  8. Kate says:

    I gave a frame with spaces for 3 pictures. On the left side was the brides parents wedding photo, and on the right, the grooms parents wedding photo. Leaving the middle space for their wedding photo.

    Once a month wine delivery!

    The best gift we got was our coffee pot which we use all day everyday. It's well loved, it keeps me sane and its in need of a replacement.
