How to Choose a Gift for a Newly Married Couple

April 03, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 165

When a friend of yours gets married, it is customary for you to make a wedding gift. However, deciding on what to give is not an easy task. The simple reason is that what you give has to be of some use to the recipient couple. Another reason is that the item you give should not be something that they already have. Also, you need to make it a point to give something that another friend may not give.

In order to fulfill all the requirements of a good wedding gift you need to think out of the box. Try to think of some novel item to give. If your fiend already has built his own house or has bought a house, one thing you could give is a sapling for a large plant. He could plant it in his garden in memory of his wedding. He will remember you every time he will talk about the particular tree. What a nice gift?

The best way to buy a good plant sapling is to visit a place where they sell plant saplings. The salesman could give you some advice on what to choose. Also, if you have any architect friends, you could contact one of them to get some valuable advice on the plant to choose. These plant saplings are not expensive but the value they carry is much more than what they cost.

If you want an expensive gift, visit an art gallery. A work of art could find space for itself in any house. You might be able to find a good painting or a sculptor that could add a rich look to a living room or a bed room depending on what the artwork is. There are shops where they sell high quality artwork at reasonable prices. Therefore, buying one will not pose a problem.

The standard presents most people give newly married couples are the kitchen appliances and electric goods. Wall clocks, china and such things are also often given as gifts. What will happen at the end is that several pieces of the same items have been received. The only way to avoid this situation is to think innovatively. If you think your friend has everything he wants, give some money to charity on his name. You could leave the receipt in an envelope and make it a present. If your friend is one who is inclined to giving for charity, he will be delighted to receive your gift. Think out of the box. You will conceive thousands of ideas.
