Weddings are the blissful moments that many of us look forward to getting together and sharing the moment with the new couple. The bride and groom are starting their lives together and you want to choose the perfect gift for them that will compliment their new lives. Below is the ultimate gift guide on what the bride and groom will happily accept and make a part of their everyday living (and remember you for it).
To promote the long lasting gift of time for the newlyweds a bottle of fine wine or scotch with instructions to open on their 10th or 25th anniversary is the perfect touch. Your name will stand the test of time as the couple remembers that you gave them this gift to be shared on another momentous moment in their lives.
Couples usually are always registered for gifts at their favorite store. This is an easy solution because they have already pre-selected the items they would like to have for their new lives. Once you've found where the couple is registered buy the most expensive item on their list. This generous offer will make them smile to realize they will not simply have several of the cheaper items they selected such as two or three toasters or many sets of towels. Most couples do not expect that they will receive the most expensive item from their registry.
Cash is not a tasteless gesture and you will have the newly wedded couple smiling. With cash they can spend your gift on anything they please. This is quite liberating. Nowadays people may not carry cash, but Visa gift cards work just as well.
Find out where the couple will be visiting on their honeymoon and add a complimenting service for them to enjoy together such as a massage or a local cooking class. Both will be touched by your thoughtfulness to add such a luxury item to their time together and they will get to enjoy even more of an intimate time with your help and assistance.
Try remembering when you first started out living in your new house or apartment. What types of items did you need? The couple won't be any different. Prepare them a chest full of daily items such as shampoo, soaps, dish washing liquid, aspirin, trash bags, and other essential items and place them all in a new hamper tied with a bow. This is very practical, but will be very much welcomed to their new home.
In the end, the ultimate gift is the most thoughtful one. You know at least one of the people whom are getting married, so think deeply about what would make them smile every time they remember your gift.
