28 BRIDES 1989

If your recollections of getting
married include memories of
thoughtful, but useless bridal shower
and wedding gifts, take heart.
A recent survey commissioned by
Robert Krups, North America, a
leading manufacturer of kitchen and
personal care products, sheds light on
what Americans consider perfect and
perfectly awful, wedding presents.
The 1,000 people surved
identified America's "Top 10" best
wedding gifts, as well as the worst
choices: Knick-knacks, plaques and
figurines.
"With 66 percent of the country
choosing pots and pans and toasters
as the best wedding presents, it
appears that practical, rather than
fanciful gifts are most appreciated','
says Michael Kramm, general manager
of Robert Krups, North America.
The "Top 10" wedding gifts,
according to the survey are:
1) Dishes (11.2 percent);
(11.2
2) Linens/bedding
percent);
3) Pots/pans and toasters (tied
at 7.7 percent);
4) Towels (5.6 percent)
(3.9
5) Silverware/cutlery
percnet);
6) Television sets (3.5 percent);
7) Vacuum cleaners (3.1
percent);
washing
and
8) Irons
machines/dryers (tied at 2.8 percent);
9) Coffee makers and bedroom
sets (tied at 2.5 percent);
10) Microwave ovens (2.3
percent).
The survey also reveals that
money doesn't play a pivotal role.
As might be expected in a
country as diverse as ours, many
surprising and sometimes bizarre
items were offered as appropriate
wedding gifts, including pencil
sharpeners, his and her socks,
ceramic ducks and metal scrub
brushes.
And, of course, cash is always
appreciated.
