Often when you go out to buy a gift for someone, the options are plenty and hence the confusion ever-increasing. It is always best to decide what you want to buy and then set out with a clear idea of what you are looking for. There are several things that you need to keep in mind before you decide what you want to buy for your newlywed friend / loved one. The gifts should be able to stand the test of time, remain within a reasonable budget and of course be of use to the couple.
Wedding Gift Ideas for Newlyweds
Home appliances are essential to have in a home, and the newlyweds when setting up their new abode will need these. Think about what is functional and of use to a household, and cancel off anything that may prove to be useless to the couple. Important appliances that should be considered worth buying are washing machines, coffee makers, toasters, air conditioners, blenders, indoor grills and so on.
In case you can't finalize on any of the above gifts, then gourmet gift baskets can be the thing you can go for. You can put together delicious add-ons like fine dark chocolate with liquor, candies, French wine, gourmet bread, bottled olives, tasty cheese varieties and so on. A gourmet gift basket is a great option and can be even more fun if you know the couples' preferences in food and drinks.
Plug the photo frame up to your PC / laptop, and upload into the device memorable pictures that both / either of the couple can look back on with you, or even photographs of the couple before and after the wedding. It gives them something to look back on and cherish, while also proving to be an innovative tabletop picture frame.
An arranged tour package can be the perfect gift for newlyweds. In case they haven't already planned for their honeymoon destination, you can give them an all expenses paid vacation as a gift. The best time to make bookings is at least six months in advance from travel date, since airfare will be much more affordable.
Make sure there's plenty to do in the place you're booking them off to, and also keep the couple in the loop about your plans to buy them tickets, since this could clash with honeymoon plans. Who knows, you could give them these tickets as their honeymoon getaway, so keep them informed about your gift idea.
Personalized gifts always say that you have put in extra effort to create a special and customized gift for the couple. A doormat with the couples surname is a very popular offering. Other popular options include customized nameplates, which the couple can use for their home when starting their life together.
Personalized bathrobes for the bride and groom with their initials embroidered on the robes, make for a very cute gift for the newly weds as well. You could always have a couple theme going in pairs - like an assortment of bathrooms slippers, robes (as mentioned earlier), his and her bathroom essentials, beauty products and so on.
These ideas should help you on how to pick out a wedding gift that is thoughtful, one-of-a-kind and durable. There's a ton of good ideas available about what you can do, but stay clear from the mediocre and those that the couple will dislike since everyone seems to collectively think up the same stuff - namely crockery and crystal sets.
