What Wedding Gifts Should You Buy for The Bride and Groom?

Monday, November 27, 2017


It can be really hard to decide what kind of gifts to buy for you friends or family who are newly married. This can be a minefield, what have other people bought for them? Is there anything that they need? What are appropriate wedding gifts? These are all great questions, and are what many people ask themselves when attending weddings. Gift giving is one of the many traditions to keep up with, and if done right, can be a really thoughtful gift or something really useful for the new couple. Here are some ideas, and some things to consider, before buying gifts for newlyweds.

Do they Need Anything?
The age old question to ask yourself, is can you get someone a useful gift? Everybody loves some jewelry or nice things to put about the house, but a gift someone will use will be a gift that keeps on giving. If they haven’t sent out a list of things to buy them (which many couples for better or for worse often do) then it’s up to you to come up with something by yourself. Likewise, if they have hinted to you about any wedding gifts, this might make your decision a bit easier. It could even be worth just asking before the date, so you know what to get them in time for the reception for wedding.

Simple and Cheerful
Simple gifts can sometimes be just what a wedding needs. Why not get some luxury chocolate that can be opened up for everyone to share on the day. Good quality chocolate goes down a treat, especially when everyone has had a drink or two! There’s always getting personalised champagne inscribed with a thoughtful message. Having said that, a personalised hip flask will probably go down a treat, especially when everyone is celebrating. 

Getting Something for the House
If they have just moved into a new place together, then buying something for the house is a very popular option for many people. A wedding gift is often something a bit pricier that they might buy for themselves. A blender or something for the kitchen usually goes down a treat. Gifts like these are ones that keep on giving! As it is a wedding why not get something romantic, or for the bedroom. Getting duck feather duvets could also be a great idea, having a luxurious duvet that is good quality can be a lifelong investment. If they have just moved into the house then there are lots of things you could get them, otherwise you might have to get creative. If they are expecting, getting gifts for the baby could also be something really useful.

Weddings are such a fun and special time in someone's life, and getting the right gifts can really make the most of the occasion. Thinking about your ideas, and seeing if they need anything, is always a good idea. Getting something for the party, or some food, is also a really great and thoughtful gift too, so don’t be afraid to be simple.
