When wedding season rolls around, it’s good to have a stock of ideas ready for gifting the bride and groom. Giving gifts in encouraged in Islam, and I don’t know about you, but I always feel great after giving someone a gift! Here are 4 ideas to get your gift-giving juices flowing.
Unique wedding gifts
Nothing spells personal like a unique gift that truly reflects the couple you’re gifting. If you’re the crafty or artsy type, hand-making a personalised item for the couple is a great idea. If you’re not blessed with those talents, fret not, you can hire people to help you out! Monogrammed bathrobes, engraved silverware, or his and hers mugs are just some ideas.
Budget wedding gifts
There will come a time in your life where it seems like you have a wedding to attend almost every weekend. Getting gifts for everyone will feel like a burden, but you can go the budget route and still give great thoughtful gifts too! Some ideas include a classy desk clock, scented candle sets, or the ever popular glass tumbler set. Alternatively, why not go the effort route? Organise a surprise housewarming or get-together to welcome your bff’s new partner into your group of friends.
Practical wedding gifts
If the couple you’re gifting is going to be living in their own place soon after the wedding, getting them practical, house related gifts will not only ease their transition, but they’ll think of you every time they use your handy gift. We love the idea of giving re-useable tupperwares for couples who aren’t the cooking type, or small home appliances like a toaster oven or air purifier/oil diffuser will help their new house feel like home in no time.
Easy wedding gifts
Sometimes, you’re pressed for time and don’t get the chance to go shopping. That’s totally okay! Most couples would be more than happy to receive cash or vouchers which they can use at their own discretion for whatever they need. Make it more personal by including a personalised note or letter offering your congratulations and well wishes.
