You do not need to spend a lot of money to show the bride and groom how you care about them. Instead of wasting thousands of dollars on something they might not even like, surprise them with something that has a personal touch. For example, you can buy them a map of a town where they met and pin the place they first saw each other. Or, you can use the same map for a city where they got engaged. Customize it with their names. Whatever it is that will make them thrilled and you considerate, go for it!
If you are a bit of an artsy person you can use your art skills to make a wedding gift everybody would adore. How about painting the bride and groom or anything they love? They will be surprised and you will be thanked for giving them an unique gift. Those of you who are good at photography can make a series of photographs related to the bride and groom and use sepia tones to depict the gravity of event. You can even make a relationship timeline photo album to share with them: start from their baby photos you could get from their parents, then some about their growing up, their first photos together and so on. They will love it!
Think in the terms of what it is that they will have to use for sure and choose something that everybody needs in their daily life. However, be sure to include something that they are bound to find useful and beautiful. You could never go wrong with a designer homeware gift. Pick stylish ones that the bride and groom would love. Think about their house and the kind of style of furniture they have. If they love the Scandinavian minimalism then you should consider buying something that would perfectly fit in – pillows with a nice print, but not vibrantly coloured. This kind of a gift is excellent as they will always think about you and use it.
If you would like to sparkle the romance between the newly weds you can make a romantic basket full of heart-warming gifts. Let your creativity spread as you shop for the wine bottle, pick a book with love poems and anything that you think might suit them.
