Mobile Wedding gifts - that are still in use?

We were given a kitchen utensil set 35 years ago and I still use the potato masher today ... it’s the only surviving piece.

Anyone else still have a “working” wedding gift in their house?

I still have some kitchen utensils that were bought as a wedding present for my 1st marriage and also a plate from a dinner set from my 1st marriage... that was almost 22 years ago and I’ve remarried since then so the gifts lasted longer than the marriage lol 😂

We got married in February 1967 and are still using the potato masher, cake slice and slotted spoon from the Prestige kitchen set. Also a large meat platter from our first dining service.

One of the best presents we got was a £5 Boots voucher from a friend who was really hard up (she wrote “I looked hard for something that cost £5 but looked like I’d spent a lot more but I couldn’t find anything.i thought you could at least get some toiletries”)

We bought a Ken Hom wok which was in sale and we must have used it weekly since! We got married in 1999

We got married in 1983 so 36 years.

I am pleased to report that the Lady I married is still in good working order and performs tasks to a good standard.

However we are hoping for an improvement after her hip replacement next week.

I've still got the Denby dinner plates and coffee cups I chose. Unfortunately over the years the side plates & bowls have all broken, as has the sugar bowl. I still have the gravy jug too.
Also, my sister bought me an electric whisk when I got engaged (29 years ago), which only stopped working last year! So i bought another the same make. Wonder if this one will last 29 years as well? Fingers crossed!
