Weddings are the best occasions to express love, affection, and gratitude to our near and dear ones. Friends, relatives, colleagues, and acquaintances get married, and it is definitely a time to celebrate. Could there be a better way to show your love than by thrilling the newly-wedded couple with a wonderful and useful wedding gift?
If the to-be married couple has made a wedding gift list and a store registry, be sure to check it out before purchasing your gift. After all, you don’t want to clutter up their space with unwanted items. If you can afford very expensive wedding gifts that the couple would love to have but have not included on the registry, then go ahead, and get them.
Here are the top five wedding gift ideas that have been popular for ages:
1. Honeymoon package:
Newly married couples would love to go on a honeymoon, and quite naturally, to some exotic locales. Unfortunately, not all can afford a pricey tour package. A honeymoon package makes for a wonderful wedding gift, and has always topped the list of wedding gift ideas. It is ideal to book a honeymoon trip where the tour operator is flexible in terms of itinerary changes. A gift certificate would also be perfect.
2. Home appliances:
Most of the home appliances will be listed in the gift registry, as the couple will need them for their new home. Home appliances range from easily affordable to costly. It is needless to mention that the choice depends on your budget. Sandwich toasters, blenders, iron boxes, DVD players, etc., cost less and will fit the budget of many. On the other hand, air conditioners, refrigerators, high-end televisions, and washing machines will cost more. Do not forget to check out shopping web sites for wedding gift ideas.
Jewelry has always had a special place in weddings. No bride and groom is complete without some elegant pieces of jewelry. Discuss with the wedding couple if a pearl set would go well with the bridal dress or what cuff links and tie pin would match the groom’s suit. Jewelry sets for the bride and groom will be expensive; so you must consider your budget. Despite its high cost, jewelry does certainly qualify as a personalized wedding gift.
4. Cash gifts:
The newly married couple may be cash strapped following the expenses incurred for the wedding ceremony. It is indeed considered rude to include cash on the gift registry and most couples avoid it. If you are close to the couple, consider a cash gift. Yet another idea is to discuss with the couple and take up one of the wedding expenses; for example, photography, floral decoration, wine, etc. This would definitely remove some financial burden off the couple and, of course, be a unique wedding gift idea!
5. Personalized wedding gifts:
Personalized wedding gifts are now available! These not only make unique wedding gifts, but are the easiest to procure as they can be ordered online. Several web sites now sell personalized gifts. Clothes, towels, bed spreads and pillow covers, crockery sets, photo frames, wine glasses, and plenty of other items can be personalized and made into unique gifts.
A wedding is a time when a couple enters into a relationship that is meant to last forever. Make it fantastic by giving suitable wedding gifts that the couple will cherish.
