Weddings are events that are fun to attend. You get to celebrate the love of a couple who is dear to you. Picking the perfect gift is another thing. This part may still feel challenging, no matter how close you are to the bride and the groom. Running out of ideas? Here is some inspiration:
A Private Toast
Not everyone will have the chance to give the couple a toast on their reception. You may opt to write a small message of what you wish for their married life. Have this note along with a bottle of champagne for delivery. You may choose to have your gift placed in a wooden box or a luxury case. Complete it with champagne flutes or chocolates.
The couple will find this gift a welcome treat after all the stress of wedding preparations. They may even take this gift along in their honeymoon and have a private toast of their own.
A Witness to the Journey
Any marriage will have a series of firsts. Examples are their first fight or the first meal they cook together. It could even extend to the first social gathering they attend as husband and wife. Give the couple a journal where they can document all those first times. As they go through it, they will realize how much their relationship has grown. Putting it in a journal will also help them be mindful that they move now as a team, and not as individuals. They will appreciate their togetherness by jotting down their milestones.
A Touch of Comfort
A nice gift idea that is also very functional is matching robes or matching pillows. You can have it embroidered with “His” or “Her” or “Mr.” or “Mrs.”. You can even think of witty or cute phrases to make the text more customized.
They will enjoy wearing or using these items as they spend leisure moments together. They can even take these along in their travels.
A Gift of Experience
Some of the best gifts are not items but experiences. As a newlywed couple, they are excited to do things together. Give them a gift pass for a couple’s massage. This is a perfect way to relax after all the wedding preparations that they have gone through. One session of a cooking class may help them be more conscientious about their meal planning as a couple. Looking for a more relaxed but enjoyable experience? Buy them tickets for a sports event or concert that they both love.
A Personalized Keepsake
Most couples go digital when it comes to their wedding invitations. After all, the printed version often serves as clutter to another’s home. In this case, show them that you appreciate being a part of their special event.
Print out their wedding invite and put it in a shadow box. This is a chance for you to unleash your creativity. You can add some accessories to make the invite more vibrant. You can also add a picture of them that you love. This gift will warm the hearts of the couple. It might find a good spot in their home.
Wedding gifts do not need to be expensive. They only need to be sincere. Genuinely celebrate with them as they go through a new chapter in their lives.
