Many new couples receive more picture frames, candy dishes and candle
stick holders than they can possibly use. While these are all lovely
gifts, they are also very common and not likely to stand out very much to
the new couple. On the other hand a gift that is truly creative is likely
to be well appreciated by the bride and groom.

A collection of board games can be a very creative and useful wedding
gift. Many couples enjoy entertaining and having a number of their
friends over for dinner, drinks and conversation. While this in itself is
a great deal of fun, introducing board games can be a competitive way to
spice up the evening and bring laughter into the gathering. Everyone
enjoys playing their old favorite board games and many people also enjoy
experimenting with new games. Giving the couple a collection of board
games as a wedding gift can lead to many nights of fun for the couple and
their friends.

Theme baskets also make wonderful creative gift ideas. In creating a
theme basket you are only limited by your imagination in what to include
in your basket. You could create baskets that are cooking related, sports
related or travel related. The key to creating a theme basket that is not
only creative but also appropriate for the couple is to keep in mind
their likes and dislikes. The couple that eats out every night of the
week may not enjoy cooking and would therefore not appreciate a basket
full for recipes and kitchen utensils, however, the couple with season
tickets to a particular sport may enjoy a basket filled with DVDs from a
championship series as well as memorabilia from their favorite sports
team.

A couple is likely to receive countless picture frames on their wedding
but you can put a twist on the idea of giving a picture frame to turn it
into a more creative wedding gift. One way to do this is to purchase a
large frame and insert an inexpensive print that the couple will
appreciate or a blown up picture of the two of them. This creative gift
stands out from the traditional picture frame because it includes a photo
and is ready for immediate display. Many picture frames remain in the box
for years while the couple tries to decide on the perfect picture to
display in the frame but giving the couple a framed portrait or print
eliminates this dilemma.

Another creative gift for a wedding is a personalized calendar. Many
office supply stores will create a calendar for you if you provide them
with the twelve pictures that you would like to include in the calendar.
This creative gift idea can be created by an office supply store for a
relatively low price or the wedding guest may opt to create the calendar
themselves on their own computers. It is very simple and many word
processing programs offer calendar templates. This creative gift idea is
sure to be appreciated by the new couple for its practicality and
originality.

There are many companies that will create a print that has the appeal of
a watercolor painting from a photograph. Giving a gift certificate for
this service can be a very creative gift idea. You may choose to give the
gift certificate with instructions for the couple to redeem the gift
certificate to have a water color likeness created from one of their
favorite wedding pictures. If you have a copy of a picture that is
flattering to both the bride and the groom you may want to arrange for
this service using the picture you have in lieu of giving the couple the
gift certificate. The one caveat to giving this gift is to allow enough
time for the print to be created and returned to you so that you don’t
have to present your gift to the bride and groom after their wedding
date. If you plan to attend the wedding in person, it is appropriate to
have the gift for the bride and groom either at the wedding or else
scheduled to arrive via shipping prior to the wedding date.

A couple that already has children may appreciate a gift certificate
stating that you would be willing to baby-sit for the couple’s children
once a month for the first year of their marriage. This creative gift is
extremely useful for the couple because it allows them one night a month
to go out and enjoy themselves.

Creative wedding gift ideas don’t have to be expensive but they are often
widely appreciated. A creative wedding gift is likely to stand out from
the more traditional gifts. Creative gifts are also likely to be greatly
appreciated by the new couple.
