Buying wedding gifts will always be a tough situation. When you don’t want to present the newlyweds with a simple check or cash gift, the proposition becomes tricky. How do you buy something that is meaningful to both people? How much should you spend and what is appropriate? Below, are a few great wedding gift ideas that are sure to satisfy every couple:
It’s obvious that everyone loves food. So, buying a kitchen set for the happy couple is a no-brainer. It’s up to you to decide how to define “kitchen set” though. Pots, pans, and utensils are great, but is there a cheese or sweets lover in the couple? Engraving the couples’ name into pots or cutting boards is a great way to personalize the gift. Maybe toss in a few wine or champagne glasses to help them celebrate their special night.
World Map Or Globe
The happy couple may be getting married in Colorado, but they plan on moving to California. Or, they live in Tennessee, but have family in Florida. A world map or globe is a perfect gift because it is something the couple can hang onto forever. They can put pins in all the locations they have been or intend to travel to for their upcoming vacations. A map or globe is a great visual journal for couples.
The glass set could be included with the other kitchen objects or packaged on its own. Maybe the groom doesn’t eat meat, while the bride has a food allergy. Regardless, everyone needs to drink. Whether it’s water or alcohol, customizing a glass set is a terrific idea.
Most people don’t think about this, but the Mrs. does have to change her last name everywhere. This idea is cute, thoughtful, and most importantly, cheap. Most personalized mats will cost no more than $200. And most likely, the couple will see your gift next to their front door for many years to come. Your simple gift will quickly capture the affection of the newlyweds.
