Getting married is one of the most amazing and joyous moments in the life of two people.The happy couple will plan their wedding, choose a wedding dress and share this magical moment with their loved ones before they go on to live happily ever after. When someone gives a wedding gift, it is meant to express their own thoughts and affection towards the newly married couple. A wedding gift must be chosen carefully and have thought because they need to keep the couple’s individual tastes, likes and dislikes in mind.Nothing is more distasteful and insulting than an inconsiderately given gift. The value of a wedding gift, or any gift for that matter, is not determined by how much money was spent, but by the amount of thought and consideration that went into the gift.

We know that there are an endless amount of options when it comes to wedding gifts, so picking the right one can be tough.Choosing the perfect wedding gift requires time and thought. A gift giver should always look to give a gift that is unique, different and relevant to the couple.

Personalized gifts always stand out and make a personal statement on behalf of the giver. A special memento, decorative crystal, or a paired watch with the couple’s names engraved in it along with the wedding date is something memorable for the wedding couple.

For very close relatives, a hand-made scrapbook complete with family pictures, or a family tree platter with hand-painted pictures of family members along with their names, signature photo quilts, or customized ceramic plates with the couples pictures and wedding dates etched on it are a few ideal gift options.

In case of a hard-core golf fan, one can give a golf set with the couple’s names engraved on it. A Bible with the couple’s names and wedding dates engraved on it is an ideal gift for a spiritually inclined couple. It is necessary to be aware and informed about a couple’s interests, hobbies, tastes and the like. A gift can be given based on this kind of information. Romantic gifts like photo pillows with the couple’s portraits on it can also be given. One can also give gift certificates, home décor items, classic gift items like crystal and silverware, or various wedding mementos like a polymer clay image or metal candles, just right for the mantel and keepsakes.

The choice of exchanging gifts for each other rests on the bride and the groom. Couples can exchange framed love poems, engraved jewelry or even unconventional items like a vintage car, for those who can afford it. A thoughtful gift certificate to a relaxing spa or a recreational resort is just the right way for the bride or bridegroom to express their gratitude and love for their parents. It is the thought that matters, and mere framed poetry or a handwritten letter to the parent is also as valuable, if not more.

Parents can give bridal showers, a party to acquaint the couple to the family, or some personalized gift items, including gift certificates. Thank-you gifts need not be expensive, but should cater to individual taste. It should be given according to the kind of relationship one shares with the guests.
