Wedding Gifts For The Bride And Groom

Nov 23, 2007
You have been invited to a wedding and now have to decide what gift to give the happy couple. Choosing the best gift is sometimes difficult. You definitely want to avoid the last minute dash to find something to give. Besides thinking of what to give you also want to keep it unique. No couple wants to get 10 gravy boats. How do you buy that unique wedding gift? There are a few ways to make sure your gift is an original. You can make it yourself, get it personalized or be creative. Trying one of these three ideas will ensure that nobody else will be giving a duplicate of your gift.

If you are blessed with a special creative talent you can whip up a gift the couple will surely love. Some great handmade gifts are paintings, soaps, candles or knitted items. You can also put together a recipe book with family favorites in it. Go a step further and put together some jars of dry ingredients with recipes attached where the cook adds some of the ingredients to whip up a soup or casserole. If you want to give a gift from the heart offer to sing the couple a song at the reception or even cook the dinner for them. Use your special talent to create a gift that nobody else can ever give and the couple with be delighted.

Adding personalization to gifts will also help set them apart from the crowd. Give the couple monogrammed bath robes with matching slippers. Play to each of their hobbies or interests with a pen set for him and knitting supplies for her. If you know the couple well you should be able to find something that seems perfect for them. You can always have a personal message added to any gift, like glasses with their last name etched on them. Make the gifts unique to them and they will appreciate the thought you put into it.

For those who just have no clue what to buy - get creative. There are some things the couple will need but nobody will think to buy these things for a wedding gift. Put together kits that provide the couple with essentials in a nice package. Every new home needs cleaning supplies, so put various cleaning items in a mop bucket and you have a useful gift. Buy a large pot and every spice you can think of for a gift that will tempt their taste buds. These creative gifts are very helpful to the new couple, but at the same time quite simple.

Most people try to go way out and buy the best gift they can, but in the end others have the same thought and the couple ends up with duplicate gifts. To make sure your gift won't be returned turn it into a project that you put some work into, so you end up with a unique wedding gift for a deserving couple. They will be sure to enjoy your unique gift for years to come.
