Marriages are made in heaven; and when you are in the presence of a couple in love, it truly does feel like it! One’s wedding day is even more special than a birthday or any other occasion, as you get to share it with the most important person in your life! Celebrate the bride and groom’s wonderful newfound passion in being together with these fabulous wedding gift ideas.
When it comes to weddings and anniversaries, it is always a good idea to invest more and get the couple one big gift that they can enjoy together! This being said, certain traditional gifts for the bride or the groom like couple watches, branded perfume etc are always well appreciated. Nowadays even out of the box items, like electric toothbrushes or dressing tables, come in ‘his’ and ‘hers’! When setting up a new home, any couple will enjoy having cute matching knick-knacks like these, be it coffee cups or silk pajamas!
Personalized gifts are a hit for any occasion, especially weddings. Inscribing the bride and groom’s name on any present will make it that much more beautiful! How about a pretty tablecloth with their name and wedding date embroidered in the centre, or an engraved rustic door-knocker! These unique gift ideas are sure to make them feel special and wonderful!
A creative and fun gift idea for newlyweds you are close to is aphrodisiacs! Now this is a shaky area and many experts say that chemically these fruits or herbs do nothing to the body. It’s all in the state of mind. So when presenting “erotica” food, like oysters or chocolate, be sure to put them in a basket with other similar goodies, so that the purpose is clearly established. When the couple realizes what these items are meant to do, they will automatically get into the mood and relish it more. Other natural aphrodisiacs are watermelon, figs and cheese! Chilli peppers are also said to increase arousal, though I personally believe it gives the consumer flushed cheeks and a tingle on the tongue, thus leaving the right impression!
The first thing any couple does once they are married is setting up a new home. Gifting them something thoughtful, like furniture, decorative paintings and sculptures or even intricate lampshades to add to the décor, is a lovely idea! When shopping for larger items or electronics, it is better to find out what they want first, so you don’t end up with repeats. Also try to stick with the theme of their home, so your present doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb! In this line, it is a great idea to present them with a gift certificate for an interior decorator. This way they can go all out and enjoy designing their lover’s nest any way they want!
A practical, yet perfect, gift idea for any newly married couple is money. Cash may seem like a cold, heartless gift, but in fact that is the one gift that the couple will be most thankful for. The bride and groom would have definitely spent a large part of their savings in arranging the perfect wedding and will be grateful for the monetary support for their future lives. It is always a good idea to gift cash in advance, especially for the weddings of close friends and relatives. This way they can actually splurge on their little desires without having to feel guilty. To an eager bride, a $5000 designer gown and a $2500 thrift store imitation makes all the difference in the world, and thanks to you she may be able to live her dream!
