Invited to a wedding but not sure what to give the bride and groom? This is the question many are faced with as they accept the invitation to a wedding. For those new to the etiquette of weddings, it may come as a surprise, but it is considered good form to give the happy couple a gift to commemorate their big day and help them start their new life together.
Gifts for couples can be challenging. Today, many couples live together for a period of time prior to the wedding, and often couples will already have everything needed to furnish a home or apartment. With gifts for the home ruled out, what are the options left for someone attending the event? Narrowing down the options further, guests want to appear thoughtful and often shy away from the idea of just giving money as a gift. The question is then, what should you give to the happy couple?
The Perfect Gift
Meaningful gifts are always a great way to go. Personalized or handmade items are great ways to let a couple know that you really care about their happiness. Gifts engraved with a date and the names of the bride and groom, really communicate the thoughtful intention of the gift giver.
A Bottle Of Wine
Wine is also a wonderful gift choice for any couple. Wine is one of the most sophisticated and well received gifts that can be given. In keeping with the elegant and romantic nature of weddings, wine is a thoughtful and charming gift, which will be well appreciated. From effervescent Champagne to a sturdy Merlot, there are many options of wine to choose from. We recommend choosing more than one wine and creating a personalized wine gift set. The happy couple is sure to celebrate when they taste the delicious treat you prepared for them to share.
A Personalized Touch
Those seeking a unique and personalized gift, may want to consider purchasing a set of wines commemorating the year of the wedding and repackaging them in a personalized wine box. Online, one can find examples of beautiful custom wood wine boxes that offer laser engraving, branding or foiling. The set would be a wonderful and thoughtful memento for any couple. Perhaps, the couple could drink one of the bottles on their first anniversary, one on their 10th, and another on their 20th. A gift like this could be enjoyed and saved for many years to come.
