The wedding is one of the most important events and days in the life of every couple. And you, as a (close) friend, want to make them happy and choose a gift that both of them would like. But, it’s not always that easy – you don’t want to buy something they won’t use. However, there are a few gift ideas that almost every couple will appreciate, and here they are!
Glassware and barware
Almost everybody likes cocktails and wine, but people rarely think about it when they move in together. That’s the main reason why glassware and barware are one of the most fabulous wedding gifts. Cocktail shakers and strainers, as well as some cute wine glasses will, most likely, help the engaged couple to stock their home bar fully. If you choose to go for glasses, you can also think about engraving the names of the bride and groom on them to make your gift memorable.
Kitchen pan set
A kitchen pan set is always a great gift, especially if the couple wasn’t living together before marriage. However, even if they lived together before and had their own kitchen sets, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they don’t need a new and better one. Marriage is a “start of a new life” for some people, and therefore, having new stuff in the kitchen might be refreshing and exciting for both of them. Always think about the color that the bride (or groom) likes, and also if that set fits their kitchen decor.
This idea is a bit different, but it is, for most modern couples, the best one out there. It couldn’t be simpler – guests contribute funds to a gift card wedding registry, and e couple can do whatever they want with that money instead of having unwanted gifts. They can buy homeware or any other stuff they need, or they can spend the money on their honeymoon trip. It is entirely up to them how they are going to spend their gift card. This way is also better for guests since they don’t have to think or ask what the couple needs.
A photo album or book of memories could be a fantastic gift if you are a very close friend with the couple. Choose the best pictures you had with them throughout years of your friendship and put them together. It will remind them of some of the most amazing moments you had on different events, trips or parties. Also, it could be a great reminder of your support through different periods of their life. Anyways, many couples would love to see such an album, and if you have a massive collection of these photos, then this wedding gift idea might be the best.
A bottle of good whiskey or scotch
Most couples enjoy celebrating their wedding or honeymoon with a bottle of good whiskey. Even if they don’t drink alcohol in general, special days like this one are always exceptions. However, it doesn’t have to be whiskey. If you know the couple well, you can choose a bottle of good wine or champagne if they like it more. Scotch could also be their favorite, and there are plenty of good choices out there. Also, don’t forget to write a message and dedicate that drink to the special day they are going to have. It could be their first honeymoon night or the day when their baby comes to the world.
Before choosing the wedding gift for your friends, talk to them a few weeks earlier and try to find out what they need and what would they like to have. If you find out precisely what they need – great! On the other hand, if they don’t mention anything in particular, suggest them gift cards and let them spend money however they want.
