Congratulations to Jimmy Kimmel and Molly McNearney. In a small but celebrity-filled ceremony in Ojai, California, the late night talk show host and his co-head writer became husband and wife.
US Weekly is reporting that Molly, “walked down the aisle with her father. And at the end of the ceremony, she and her new husband exited to George Harrison’s ‘My Sweet Lord.'”
Friends who witnessed the event on Saturday afternoon included Jennifer Aniston and fiance Justin Theroux, Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia De Rossi, Emily Blunt and husband John Krasinski, Ben Affleck and wife Jennifer Garner, Matt Damon and wife Luciana, and Gabourey Sidibe who arrived to the wedding in a beautiful white wedding dress and gown in a fantastic wedding prank.
It’s often hard to know what to get a celebrity for a wedding gift. Knowing what to get Jimmy and his bride must be especially daunting. Last year Jimmy Kimmel spoofed one of the more unusual campaign fundraising ideas from President Obama’s reelection campaign with a fake ad for the “Obama Event Registry.” The fundraising idea was that young couples could ask loved ones to donate towards the reelection campaign as a wedding gift.
Kimmel took great offense to the tag line of the Event Registry, “a campaign donation goes a lot further than a gravy bowl.” Kimmel’s response was, “Not if you like gravy!”
With that consideration in mind I thought I would help some of the (assistants of the) celebrities who attended the wedding with some gift ideas for the newlyweds.

Goose Gravy Bowl from Italy 5 of 9
It would be a lovely nod to Jimmy's Italian heritage for one of his guests to purchase him a vintage Italian goose gravy bowl. This one found at the Etsy shop of Esther Thomas is in mint condition and comes with a spoon.

Every Couple Needs a Drizzle Spoon 6 of 9
We have all heard about gravy lump debates. With a new marriage starting, a gravy drizzle spoon would certainly stop any lump fights from happening. The creator of the spoon made it with four "spouts" so that the user could determine how lumpy they wanted their gravy to be.
