Shopping for wedding gifts would be quite easy if there were gift registries that the couple has organized. But sometimes, even having the registries in place, we want to get them something that would matter. How do we make sure that the gift won’t go to the attic or basement where it would collect dust and eventually be recycled as a gift to someone else?
Some experts have shared and gave advice on how to get the best gift that is sure to please. Besides, your gift is an extension of who you are and your love for the couple.
Here are a few tips you can look at to make sure that you get the perfect wedding gift.
- Make sure you cover basic necessities.
Of course, a couple will have to start somewhere. It may not be clear if the couple has a new home or will stay with either the bride or the groom’s place for a while, but one thing is for sure, sooner or later they will get their own place that will need to meet their basic needs. This could be appliances, linens, kitchenware, or even a dining set. But it would be good to check the registry for these first as you might be giving duplicates of what other guests might have decided to give.
- Get a group to give the gift.
If you know a number from the guest list, try partnering with them and pool together for certain gift. This doesn’t just make sure that you can find a unique and essential gift but it allows you to share the budget on spending for the gift. You can also get the couple the collection they’ve always wanted for linen, and dining set because you have someone to share it with.
- Customizing everything.
Once you’ve made a decision on what gift you are giving, it would be an added cherry if you can personalize or customize your gift. Personalizing a gift makes it more special as it shows that you have dedicated enough time to get the gift ready and it makes connects the couple to the items you are giving.
