10 GIFT IDEAS FOR WEDDINGS
Posted on August 11 2018
You received the invite. You bought the outfit. And you’ve got no idea what to buy them?
Wedding gift-giving can be tricky. The way we buy wedding gifts has changed in recent years, thanks in part to the rising average age of marriage. Many couples no longer require the essential for starting their first home. In fact, many couples already have too much of everything. Guests are often left wondering whether the couple would like some essential items or would prefer something out of ordinary like a luxury treat. Do you go with the seemingly boring kettle on their registry or just give them money?
There are so many different factors to take into consideration when it comes to gift-giving in general, but the particular pressure of giving a couple something that will last as long as their love can give you a head ache.
The trick is to not overthink it, as we learned when we asked brides reveal the best wedding gifts they received on their big day. The most important lesson we learned is that sticking to the registry is highly recommended. In most cases it may be best to go with something you think is boring that they asked for (rather than trying to impress everyone with thinking out of the box). Having said that, in some cases wedding registries might get bought out by the time you remember you have to find a gift or some couples might not even have a registry.
We have rounded up 10 thoughtful wedding gift ideas for you that you can buy. These wedding gifts are sure to make the happy couple a little bit happier.
