Five Perfect Wedding Gifts Ideas
1. Stuff for the Kitchen. Every couple needs
cookware and kitchen gadgets. Whether you choose to buy
them a durable set of pots and pans or a bread maker,
kitchen products are practical and thoughtful.
|| Choosing a wedding gift
for a couple may, at first, seem like a pretty simple endeavor. Most of us think
we can just run right out on our lunch hour and grab something, have it wrapped,
and, voila! ó problem solved. But if youíve ever actually tried to do this,
youíve surely discovered that itís never, ever that easy! There are several
criteria to be met before purchasing a wedding gift, so letís go over some of
them ó before you waste another lunch hour!
Weddings are a time of joy and celebration, and bring gifts
for the happy couple. But finding the perfect wedding gift can be agonizing.
There are so many possible choices, yet you probably want to get the couple
something really special.
Checking the couple's wedding registry can provide some guidance. But what if
nothing there strikes your fancy, or they haven't registered? Here are five
gifts that any couple is sure to appreciate:
If you're thinking about buying common items like
cookware or dishes, it might be a good idea to check
around and make sure nobody else has already bought that
for them. More unique items such as pasta makers or
dehydrators are less likely to be duplicated.
2. Gift Certificates. Most major stores, and many
smaller ones, offer gift certificates or gift cards.
These allow couples to select the gifts they need and
want most. Putting some thought into where you get gift
certificates from will ensure that the couple can put
them to good use. If they're buying a fixer-upper house,
for example, gift certificates to a hardware store might
be in order.
Gift certificates to nice restaurants and date
destinations are also great for couples. A night on the
town is always great for the recently married,
especially if they are trying to save money for a big
purchase or paying off student loans and won't be
spending much on entertainment. If you're familiar with
their honeymoon destination, you could also give them
gift certificates to be used there.
3. Handmade Gifts. A handmade quilt, a custom
scrapbook with pictures of the bride and groom, or a
piece of pottery that you crafted make very sentimental
wedding gifts. These types of things will be treasured
for years to come, and the couple will always think of
you when they look at them.
4. Personalized Items. Paintings, tapestries,
picture frames, and other items with the couple's names
on them make great gifts. Plaques commemorating the
wedding date are also nice. Personalization is not as
expensive as it once was, so chances are you can find
something within your budget.
5. Money. One thing that almost every couple can
do with is money. Weddings are expensive, and they may
also be buying a home. While etiquette dictates that
couples do not ask for money as a wedding gift, they
often appreciate receiving it.
If the couple is struggling to pay for the wedding, you
could offer to pay for the reception, florist, or
something else associated with the ceremony. This is
most appreciated when coming from a close friend or
