Weddings are packed with perks like open bars, reuniting with old friends and wearing that cocktail dress you just had to buy from the display window. However, one of the most stressful parts of wedding is buying the perfect gift. It’s easy to impress the bride and groom with a unique gift without breaking the bank.
Buy a Gift For An Acquaintance
It’s common to get a surprise wedding invite from a friend you haven’t from in over a decade, a coworker you hardly talk to or someone you just met. Don’t panic. Even if you may not know the person very well or not be as close with them anymore, it’s still easy to pick a memorable gift. Buy cookie bouquets that the bride will love more than her flower bouquet. Find unique household products that they wouldn’t already own like a wine chiller, remote control mop, or swivel cheese board.
Impress a Close Friend
Attending your former college roommate’s, best friend from childhood’s or closest work friend’s wedding is going to be one of the most meaningful events of your life. Your gift needs to rise to the occasion. Since you know your friend’s interests, you can pick a gift that beats the standard plate set. Buy a kayak for the adventurous friend, a wine membership for the sophisticated friend or Broadway tickets for your music-loving friend.
Find a Valuable Gift For Family Members
As they say, blood is thicker than water. If you’re close to your family, your relatives’ weddings will be the most meaningful weddings that you attend. While it may seem the easiest to get a gift for someone close to you, there is also a lot of pressure to pick the perfect gift. Use your closeness to your advantage. Personalized gifts like scrapbooks filled with family pictures, personalized signs and décor and family portraits will be a hit.
No matter how close you are to the bride and groom, your gift will shine above the rest.
