Top Four Wedding Presents to Give a Newly Married Couple

When someone graduates from upper level education they will often receive presents like college diploma frames and other miscellaneous college gifts. When these same people find the love of their life and get married, they will receive many wedding presents. Couples are typically young and in need of many things for everyday living, their new homes and yards. When considering what type of gift to buy a newly married couple, people may want to purchase one of the top four wedding presents. These top four presents include dishes, towels, sheets and gift cards.

Generally a couple will register at one or two retail locations that sell dishes and other household items. The dishes they pick out will include plates, serving bowls and coffee mugs. Typically a couple will have a mixture of brands and colors of every day and serving pieces prior to getting married. By purchasing pieces of their desired set, they will establish a collection that is uniform and consistent with the style of their kitchen. Most young couples do not have the funds to make this large purchase for themselves. Also, they will typically have these dishes for many years to come.

New towels are also one of the greatest presents a new couple will receive. These sets will consist of bath sheets, hand towels and wash cloths. The couple may even register for bath mats and shower curtains that match their set of towels. By receiving these sets, they are able to decorate their new bathroom in the style they want. If the couple knows where they will be living and the number of baths, they could even ask for multiple colors and sets of towels. Again, this type of purchase is expensive and not something a young couple would be able to buy for themselves. This gift is something they both will enjoy on a daily basis.

A third gift that is a popular choice to give a newly married couple are linens for their bed. This includes the pillows, mattress covers, sheets, comforters, shams and decorative pillows. Again most couples will register for one or two sets of linens depending on the number of bedrooms they have in their new home. Linens can be extremely expensive depending on the brand, the type of material and the thread count of the fabric. This gift is definitely something a young couple won’t be able to afford by themselves. It is also a gift that will last for many years to come.

The fourth most popular wedding gift someone can purchase are gift cards or pre-paid credit cards. When someone gives this gift, it is just like giving the couple cash to use however they see fit. They can use these cards to complete their registries and purchase other items they may need. If they receive pre-paid credit cards, they can use them to pay for everyday living expenses, going out to dinner or even for things on their honeymoon. By giving them these type of cards, the couple will have the freedom to purchase whatever they want.
