The joy and happiness of receiving a wedding invitation can send you into a tail spin….the outfit, the planning, and the all- important wedding gift. The endless search for something unique and special, which you know the happy couple will love, can feel like a headache. The happy couple may be setting up a new home and although they may already have the basics, there are plenty more gift possibilities. Here’s a few of the best ideas around at the moment.
Top wedding gifts for couples
Home renovation credits
If you really want to wow a special couple in your life, one of the best gifts to give is a bathroom renovation package. A good way to do this is to head to your local hardware store or bathroom renovation shop and organize a decent gift card where the couple can go and shop for something that will give their home a lift. Rather than choosing the tap ware, tiles or toilet brand for them, let them do it themselves.
Herbs and plants
There’s something nice about a gift that you can use practically. A small collection of potted up different herbs can be fun for the kitchen (or garden), easy to keep, smell great and wonderful to use in cooking. With some attractive pots (wooden, metal, ceramic) it’s the gift that can make anyone smile. The alternative would be a money plant. Very easy to care for in any conditions and will last for years!
Depending on your price range you could splurge on some very simple but classy white cotton bedding. A favourite with everyone, there is nothing more indulgent than a beautiful bedding set. If you’re doubtful about their particular taste, a gift card towards their own choice would let them have the fun of picking something they’ll love. If your budget doesn’t stretch that far, then how about a dish towel set? There are some fun and funky or traditional, stylish ones around – you can even get them personalised!
Key holder board
A great idea is a key holder board. This can be hung by the door and can be personalised just for the couple. It’s practical but something people forget to buy for themselves. They come in all shapes, sizes and price ranges. Some also have letter slots and memo boards incorporated. With so many styles to pick from you can home in on the couples quirks and have them included.
Front door mat
This sounds a bit strange as a gift but in fact has lots of fun about it – a front door mat. Again a very practical present which will last for years. They can be handcrafted, modern or vintage – the range is epic! You could have it personalised with their surname and the wedding year and its the gift that is not only unique, but will keep them smiling every day that they use it.
A glassware set
There are some beautiful sets to be had with a mixture to suit all occasions. From a formal dinner party to family and friends casually dropping in. It’s a classic wedding gift choice as it never fails to please. Again this is a gift you can alter the size of to suit the couple.
Picking a wedding gift always feels like a tricky decision. Decide on something you know the couple will enjoy and add a personalised touch to make it extra special. Finding a present isn’t hard – the problem is you’ll be tempted to buy them for yourself!
