When arranging a wedding, couples prefer to stick to a similar theme and style throughout. So when they invite their friends and family to attend their wedding, many of them won’t be gifting something new and innovative — they’ll likely want to stick to the traditional gift list.
Brides and grooms want thoughtful, unique, and memorable gifts. They don’t want gifts that are just sort of okay or average. They want something that will express something unique.
It can be tough to figure out what to get for your friend or family member who is getting married, especially if you haven’t seen them since high school or haven’t talked in years. You might not even know who their wedding planner is! To aid you to navigate this delicate situation. We’ve compiled a list of the best wedding gift ideas to buy for brides and grooms when invited to their wedding.
These items can be either practical or silly, but generally speaking, people like to receive thoughtful gifts because it shows they were thoughtfully remembered on a lovely day.
If your friend or family member doesn’t have the money right now for what you hope they require, consider giving them a gift card to make it easier on them. Your giftee can use this card at home or online (or both) until they get enough cash together to make purchases on their own. Gift cards offer a practical alternative for those who want a gift that can be used immediately or saved for a future occasion. They’re good for everyone from couples with small children to those who have everything under control and just want something nice to put in their registry.
Instead of giving a generic pair of earrings, think about something more personal. A number of designers have been creating custom earrings from their clients’ birthstones or other symbols or design modifications. This is a great way to give a thoughtful gift with a lot of meaning. For example, if the couple has two children, they could have two different birthstone earrings made in their honor, which is a sweet and meaningful way to say “we love you both.”
This is a must-have for every bride and groom’s wedding registry because most people will want to store their jewelry in a beautiful jewelry box at some point during the marriage. If you’re looking to provide something unique and thoughtful, consider giving them an etched wooden jewelry box personalized with your name or something extraordinary like that (and even easier on your wallet). The couple can then display it in their bedroom or other room in the home where it can be seen all the time.
Paintings by local artists
Like jewelry boxes, paintings can make great wedding gifts. This is peculiarly true when you pick up artworks by local artists who are embracing new media like video or photography or who incorporate pop culture into their work (like “Star Wars” characters). This is an excellent way to get not just the bride but her whole family excited about art over the next few years!
Getting creative with unique gifts can make any wedding more memorable for everyone involved. There are many various types of gifts that range from personalized greeting cards to personalized jewelry. While traditional cards are always appreciated, some others are more appropriate for this special day. For example, if the bride and groom have children, personalized toys may be an excellent choice for them since they can really be some fun memories that they will keep forever. Anything that takes some thought will be appreciated on your part!
A memento from your home city
If you’re going to be in town for a while, consider making a visit to the place where they met — it could be a place where they spent summers together or a school that they attended. Dinner at a favorite restaurant or a walk through a local park could also work. Buying something unique from a shop in town is another excellent option. Handmade products will bring a smile to the faces of newlyweds, and Australian made products can offer excellent gifts just when you don’t know what the best gift would be.
If you know someone enjoys something that’s not too mainstream, maybe you can find an item that represents the things they love best. For example, if your friend loves animals and animals in movies, you could find something like a stuffed animal plush toy or adorable figurine featuring an animal from one of their favorite movies. Small and very thoughtful gifts. There’s nothing wrong with giving cash at a wedding, but it can feel impersonal if you’re just sending someone money. Instead, consider getting creative with small gifts that show how much you care about their special day.
Something from their childhoods
When you visit their home, ask them what nooks and crannies hold special memories for them. They might have journals or books from when they were younger that would make great wedding gifts. Or give them pieces of furniture they remember using in their childhood bedrooms.
Wedding gifts are a big deal — and not just because they’re expensive. More importantly, they’re a sign of personal interest and concern that the person receiving the gift intends to cherish for years to come. Sometimes, though, you’ll find yourself invited to a wedding and you don’t know what to get the happy couple. There are so many delicious wedding gifts out there — from personalized wine bottles and personalized rosaries to personalized photography and customized clothing — that it can be hard to pick just one. If your friend enjoys wine, bring them a bottle of their favorite wine to sip at the wedding. If your friend loves dogs, consider bringing their favorite toy or plush dog. If they enjoy sports, consider getting them tickets to an upcoming game (or buy some tickets at the last minute). If they love cooking, take them out for dinner. The possibilities are endless! We believe we have helped you make a good choice!
