Wedding is one such occasion to be cherished and celebrated in a big way. Innovative and Creative ideas
make your part special in the gracious occasion and will be remembered by the couples for their
lifetime. Now, the question is how can one make their part special on the big day? Simple, it can be
done by giving a novelty "Wedding Gift." When we receive a wedding invitation the first thing that
comes to our mind is, what am I going to gift? How much should I spend on the gift?
Wedding gifts have to be chosen with care and affection. As a general thumb rule, selection of wedding
gifts depends on couples, their age and their culture. Here are some simple useful tips for buying a
special wedding gift:
1. Fix the Budget
Decide the budget for the Wedding gift depending on how close the couples are to you and how much
you would like to offer the couples. Determining the budget beforehand saves the time spent on
analysing gifts that are far beyond the budget.
2. Plan it Beforehand
Start searching for a gift that fits your budget well ahead of the wedding, a month before the wedding
would be the best time to start your process. This gives you some good amount of time to think variety
of creative gift ideas. Do not hesitate to discuss with the attendees on what their gift plans are as this
will help you avoiding same gifts.
3. Think of Money Pooling
The best gift idea would be buying a bulk gift with group of friends or group of relatives invited for the
wedding. You can get a big gift as a group always which an individual alone can't think of affording. One
good idea is to buy the couples a honeymoon package.
4. Consider a Cash gift
Cash gift is the best Wedding gift that couples would love to receive but the one which they would never
ask for. Cash gifts can be of any type, like a gift card from a shop or a preloaded credit card or cash in
cover or can even be a cheque enclosed in a cover.
5. Whom to Address
If you are planning to send the gift before wedding date, address the gift to either bride or bridegroom
to whom you are gifting. If the gift is offered on the wedding date or after the wedding, address the gift
to both the names of bride and bridegroom.
6. Ship the gift
If you are not attending the wedding ceremony and still thinking of sending a gift to the couples, ship
the wedding gift either before or after wedding. Always remember to follow the above point based on
the time you are sending the gift.
