What Do Couples Really Need? The Practical Wedding Gifts

Sep 5, 2008
There are so many things to think about when shopping for wedding gifts. You must consider what you think is a wonderful wedding gift versus what the happy couple will think. Most young couples getting married are just starting out while also beginning a new life together. There are two types of wedding gifts out there - the kind that will really stick with the couple throughout their life together and the kind that no couple needs. When shopping for wedding gifts, you need to decide which type of gift you want to give.

Some of the best wedding gifts are the most practical ones. Practical gifts are gifts that any engaged couple will need. These gifts will prove to be useful for years and years, help the couple to become more frugal, save time, save money, and help the couple build a richer relationship by doing things for themselves and together. Practical wedding gifts range from a good cookbook and crock pot to a nice, complete tool set or even cash that the couple can put toward a down payment on a home or car.

Practical wedding gifts really are the best gifts that you can give a couple. While the practicality may take away from the romantic appeal of some gifts, such gifts will keep on giving. For example, investing in a really good set of high quality pots and pans that will last a lifetime is an excellent wedding gift. Not only will the couple use the pots and pans almost everyday, they may find a new love together by spending time in the kitchen together over the years.

One very practical, yet very infrequent, wedding gift is the bridal tool kit. The bridal tool kit is an excellent idea for a newly married couple who will be moving into a new house together. This tool kit should include all the basic tools needed for everyday use within a happy home. Such tools would include a hammer, an assortment of nails, a flashlight, a screwdriver set, a few pliers, a wrench, duct tape, picture hangers, crazy glue, and electrical fuses. Maybe even throw in a few light bulbs.

Another very practical wedding gift, one that is more commonplace than a tool kit, is to be a sponsor for the couple. This type of gifting works best if you are in a good financial situation or if you have discussed the possibility of sharing the cost with several other people. However, sponsoring part of the wedding, honeymoon, or new house would be an invaluable gift for the couple (or their respective parents). Everyone knows just how expensive a wedding, honeymoon, or home can cost! This is a practical gift that would be remembered for the rest of the couple's life together and one that would truly be appreciated. Your sponsorship could come in the form of cash, hosting a party, picking up the bill for the wedding night hotel room, or even by providing the champagne or wine for the reception.
