Celebrate The Happy Couple With These Favorite Wedding Gift Ideas
Weddings provide such a special opportunity to congratulate, celebrate, and plan for the future. Celebrating as two wonderful people tie the knot is a special time for everyone. Picking the perfect wedding gift doesn’t have to be a chore, and while cash or gift cards are perfectly acceptable ideas, a wrapped present offers the couple something personally selected by you. Let these wedding gift ideas provide inspiration whether you are looking for the perfect present for the newlyweds or gracious thank you gifts for the bridal party.
FOR THE BRIDE AND GROOM
Help the couple welcome everyone to their home with something personal. The more unique the delivery, the better; consider the message, “Welcome to the Smith’s” on a garden wagon, an address plaque, a mailbox or even on a piece of wall art for their foyer.
Make It Personal
Marriage brings new significance to monograms and initials that are worthy of showcasing. Be sure to plan ahead in order to add personalized monograms to everything from microfiber throws to towel sets to gold-accented flatware. The bride and groom will love this thoughtful gift that truly celebrates their new couple status without breaking your budget. Practical is good. Newlyweds often are starting out with not much of their own, so those everyday essentials can be very meaningful and appreciated.
High-end bedding linens have long been a bridal registry favorite, and with good reason. Select a luxurious light and wonderfully warm microfiber sheet set in the couple’s favorite color palette or a go classic with an Egyptian cotton sheet set in white.
Candles always seem to make the most wonderful gifts; everyone is always so happy to receive them! From decorative hurricane lanterns for an outdoor patio, to romantic ones designed to celebrate a new marriage, to delicate tea lights that add ambiance to a new home. This is a gift favorite that is always adored.
Check the Registry
Wedding registries can be super convenient for everyone involved, but can sometimes take the personalized element away from the gift giver. Consult their registry to take some of the guesswork out of the process, and then choose something more personalized, but in the same ballpark. For instance if they registered for bed coverings, choose a quilt in the same color palette.
FOR THE BRIDESMAIDS
Your bridesmaids deserve a little pampering after all the attention they have showered on the bride. Indulge them with a spa bath set that will show how much you appreciate them.
Make It Memorable
Long after the big day is over, a sweet memento that can be enjoyed for years to come can be the perfect way to say thank you to the ladies in your bridal party. Wrap up a unique figurine for each member of the party that celebrates your unique friendship.
Flowers That Endure
Those gorgeous bouquets won’t last forever, but incredibly realistic potted flowers can make a perfect gift that provides the look of fresh flowers all year long. There are plenty of blooms out there to choose from, giving you a chance to pick each bridesmaid’s favorite as a personal gift.
On the Go
A handy super soft personalized fleece tote makes a gift that is both thoughtful and practical. Every time your bridesmaids use it, they will remember the special day in which they played a part.
FOR THE GROOMSMAN
The guys are all about teamwork, so saying thank you with a shout-out to their favorite team is a natural choice. From vintage NFL signs to aviator sunglasses or a leather wallet, these winning gifts for him will show your groomsman that you consider them an MVP.
This is definitely the right occasion for a personalized groomsman gift. From a monogrammed microfiber throw to a cool retro compass or a monogrammed wallet, every guy will appreciate the addition of his own personal brand.
