Have a wedding to attend? Planning the entire wedding clothes, makeup, accessories is one thing while deciding what to gift is completely a different realm. However, if you follow a few basic rules, your gift is bound to be appreciated, rather than being returned, exchanged or placed into the back of a closet. We understand that it can be difficult to find the right present without a wedding gifts' registry, but there's no harm in going off-registry. As your close one ties the knot, here’s a guide to select the perfect wedding gift for a newly married bride and groom.
Well, it’s basic etiquette to at least cover the cost of the dinner plate. However, you can be as flexible as you want when it comes to personal taste and budget. There are tons of wedding gift ideas for every budget. The money spent also depends on how close you are to the ones getting married.
Consider their Likes & Preferences
Are you well-versed with the couple? Are they adventurous type, filmy buffs or foodie couple? Perhaps they would appreciate a sponsored trip to Maldives or dining in a fancy restaurant! Consider their personality type, likes and dislikes and use them collectively to brainstorm the best wedding gift.
Give Long-Lasting Gifts
Give them gifts that won’t be used the instant they are opened. Rather, go for the gifts that will remind them of you every time they look at or use them. How about a customised handmade sketch or a crystal sculpture - perfect wedding gift ideas right!
Giving the couple something they can use (almost) in their day-to-day lives. The gift should be useful and provide some sort of utility to the couple. A set of crockery, silverware or cutlery is sure to be used for years and make a perfect wedding gift.
If you are not able to wrap your head around any wedding gift ideas for couple, just ask them. Though they would hardly give in - if you genuinely want to give them something they would love and cherish, ask them and make your gift a hit.
