Jun 28, 2008
Wedding day is one of the most memorable days for the two people getting married. As many people believe that marriages are made in heaven, so wedding gifts should be equally divine. Wedding gifts are given to the bride and the groom to bless them for their happy and prosperous future life.

In earlier times, wedding gifts were given to the newlywed couple to help them build their new homes. As people did not live together until marriage, they had to build their homes. So relatives and parents of the two gave them wedding gifts to provide them with the essential things for their home and to bless them.

Wedding gifts need not be household items or basic necessities. It depends on person to person. Many friends like to give personalized wedding gifts such as photos of the couple or a souvenir of their friendship while wedding gifts from the parents include furniture, beds, cooking material for the kitchen and many other necessities. Lately, wedding gifts have taken an emotional turn. It is in fact quite difficult to choose a wedding gift for a couple keeping in mind the couple's lifestyle and choice. So, nowadays couples tell their friends and family what they require.

Taking into consideration, the personal lives of the couple will help you decide an anniversary gift for them. Obviously you will try to give them a gift of their choice. But if you cannot decide, just look for some hints from the couple itself.

There are various anniversary gifts in the market like jewelry, flowers, statues, or some other stuff for the home. Now, gifts like holiday tours to foreign countries or tickets for the latest movie at an exotic cinema are also very common. Planning an adventure or camping trip for the duo is also an option. In today's world, art has a lot of value. Art pieces have become quite popular these days as wedding and anniversary gifts. Many people give money to the couple but that seems so aloof. Instead you should plan on giving them something unique, what the couple will remember through out their life. After all, the main purpose of giving an anniversary gift is to make the couple feel special.
