The ultimate top 10 wedding gift ideasNovember 5, 2014
Picking wedding gifts for your Marriage Gift List can be difficult if you don’t know where to start. Is there something you need? Something you wish to have but can’t afford? Take inspiration from our top 10 wedding gift ideas.
If you’re missing one or two pieces from your kitchen, or just fancy a George Foreman, your friends and family might just be able to help you. Many kitchen utensils aren’t too expensive, so this gift idea is great for guests who would like to give a little something.
Sometimes just a simple voucher could go a long way and you’ll be able to buy what you want with it. Many gift cards also offer the flexibility to spend them within one year, so you’ll have plenty of time to choose what you would like to buy.
There is nothing more traditional than receiving money as a wedding gift. Many guests prefer to contribute cash to any expensive purchases, such as the honeymoon and home improvements. If you have something in mind that you would like donations for, make sure you state clearly your financial target.
To remember your special day, request something personalised that you can keep for years to come. It could be something engraved or a compilation of photographs of you and your partner. Personalised gifts also vary in size and price, so this kind of gift is suitable for all budgets.
Have something to look forward to by requesting an experience day, from taking a ride on quad bikes to spa retreats. There are so many things to choose from, that will provide a memorable moment for you both as a married couple.
Commemorate your special day with a bottle of champagne, which is dated the same year you get married. Keep it stored away for a future anniversary or take it with you on a future holiday, providing a thoughtful keepsake.
We all know how expensive furnishing a home can be, so tell your friends and family your colour scheme or point them in the right direction if you see a specific piece of furniture you would like.
First Fight Box
The First Fight Box is one of the most quirky gifts in our top 10, and we just love the idea! On your wedding day, both of you write a letter to each other describing the best qualities or even precious memories you have had together. Accompanied with a bottle of your favourite drink, you nail shut the box until you have your first fight.
Wedding puzzle guest book
Ask one of your guests to buy a wedding puzzle guest book, which makes a photograph of you and your partner when it’s put together. Leave the puzzle pieces on a table so guests can write their well wishes on the back. This is definitely a modern twist on the generic guestbook!
If one of your friends or family is quite creative, suggest they make something as a wedding present. This sort of gift doesn’t have to be expensive and is ideal for your guests who are unable to buy you something expensive. It’s the thought that counts!
