If you are not sure, what kind of gift will the the best for the couple, here are some ideas to consider before you buy. In some cases it is very easy to pick the right gift for the happy couple, because they prepared a wedding wish list for all the guests. You can pick up one of the gifts on their list, which fits your budget.
If they can’t offer a wedding wish list, sometimes it can be hard to find the right wedding present. It should something outstanding, shouldn’t it? At first you should think how close is your relationship with the couple. How well you know them? Are you able to guess, what gift they would like to get?
– Should it be money, a product, a holiday trip or a personal wedding gift?
Of course, that is up to you. Money is always a great idea, because the couple can decide by themselves, how to use the money. To offer money in an envelope is something they want, but it is not personal or creative either. If you think, money will be the best for the couple’s new life, get a voucher from a Shopping Mall. The voucher is usually personalized and can be used for any occasion.
– What will be very helpful for the couple’s future?
If you have a close relationship with the bride or groom, a personal wedding gift will be unforgettable. For example: A unique wedding gift can be a 2 week holiday trip to Paris (the City of Love) or a relaxing honeymoon weekend at the Bahamas.
– Can you afford it or could you get together in a group and work together for a large gift like this.
A more personal option would be to create or get a personalized wedding gift. For example a self painted picture or any art object as decoration for the new home, or a wonderful homemade three -tier cake for the wedding party. Another option is to surprise the couple with something, what they would never purchase by themselves. For Example: A water bed. They need a bed to sleep on, but they may not spend so much money on a useful and comfortable item like a water bed. The amount of money you spend on a wedding gift is not so important; it is more worthy that your present is coming from the heart.
Almost the best choice is when a wedding gift is selected with love.
