7 Special and Original Wedding Gifts
If you have a wedding coming up any time soon, take note of these original wedding gift ideas. Some are more budget friendly and others more luxurious, but they all have one thing in common: They're sure to please the newlyweds.
Weddings are a joyous occasion where two people who love each other unite – as they say, “’til death do us part.” And that’s how it should be, which makes this day an incredibly special and transcendental event.
This goes from the greatest to the most minute detail. Part of the couple’s big day is receiving gifts from their beloved guests. And with that in mind, we want to present you with a few ideas for fantastic and original wedding presents.
What should I keep in mind when choosing an original wedding present?
Everything depends on how well you know the bride and groom and how close you are to them. Some friendships go all the way back to childhood, while others may be from college or the workplace.
Whatever the case may be, if you’re close to one or the other (or both) then you probably know a great deal about their tastes.
Another way to get to discover their likes and interests is by looking at their hobbies. For example, art, sports, cultural events, gastronomy, etc. This is another very helpful tool when choosing just the right gift for our loved ones.
Examples of original wedding gifts
1. A minibar
If your friends enjoy parties, get togethers and big dinners, then a minibar is a perfect gift. The best option is one that includes utensils to prepare drinks and cocktails. We’re sure the newlyweds will love this generous gift.
2. Entertainment technology
Technology has become an important part of our everyday lives. Everywhere we go, we run into some modern technological device.
So then, if the bride and groom are technology fans, you can get them a new and fun device. For example, a video game console, a new stereo, a plasma TV, or whatever you think best suits their tastes.
A beautiful and highly valued gift could be a day at the spa where the couple can rest and relax. They’ll be sure to appreciate it after so many months of stressing over wedding plans.
It will also give them a time of intimacy and allow them to share liberating and relaxing moments together.
4. The honeymoon
In many families, the parents of the bride and groom take care of this expense. But other friends and family can also take the initiative and step away from the traditional.
You can give the new couple a stay at a small town bed and breakfast, a luxurious cruise, or even an international getaway.
Or why not send them on a more extreme honeymoon full of adventure and romance?
5. An unexpected surprise
If someone already beat you to the punch and paid for the honeymoon, that doesn’t mean you can’t make their experience even more special. Find out where the new couple is going and make them reservations at a romantic restaurant.
You can also foot the bill for some exciting excursion. Your friends will be sure to love the unexpected surprise.
6. Tap into your artistic side
If you’ve got acting or directing running through your veins or you’ve created a good video or theatrical play, set your imagination free. Give the bride and groom a short film inspired by them and the best moments you’ve shared with them.
You can also get together with other friends to create a dance to some popular song, or a song that’s significant to the bride and groom. Make a surprise performance at the wedding reception and you’ll be sure to leave a lasting mark!
If your budget is limited and you want to give a special and original gift to the newlyweds, a breakfast is a great idea. Prepare a basket of fresh or gourmet foods and send it to their hotel room the next day without their knowing.
Any of the gifts above will be sure to please the bride and groom and help make their union even more special. Be sure to add a personalized touch to whatever idea you choose.
