You've had the invite pinned up on the fridge for months on end, and now as the date fast approaches for your friends/family member’s wedding, it's time to put your thinking cap on and decide on what wedding gift you will get for the bride and groom. Wine glasses, photo frame, department store voucher? The list can sometimes seem endless when you’re thinking of ideas, or maybe you don't even know where to start. Many couples these days already live together so already have many of the items you might have thought of buying a newly married couple once upon a time.
First of all, before you start looking at gift ideas, you want to check if the couple have made a wedding gift list. This is where the couple go round a store picking the items they would like to receive. A list is then created that you - the guest - can view and select an item you would like to purchase as a gift. Today there is also gift apps that do the same job, so double check if there is one of these too. These lists can make your life a lot easier when it comes to purchasing that perfect gift. It takes away the stress of deciding on a gift and the worry of whether they will like what you have chosen. But these lists are not for everyone, maybe you wanted your gift to have a more personal feel than a simple cup or plate set.
If you do decide to take the route of picking your own choice of gift, or you have no option to as there is no gift list, don't worry because there are lots of shops out there now that sell the perfect gift for any couple. Whether it’s an everyday gift or a personalised quirky gift, just remember to think about the couple you’re buying for. You don't need to spend a fortune either. Sometimes the most memorable gifts are the ones that cost next to nothing, and it's the thought that went into buying them that makes them so special.
If you’re still thinking of that perfect gift, keep popping back to Vows and Venues where we will be showing you a selection of gifts throughout the day.
Hope you find that perfect gift soon
