As Michael Scott from the popular TV show The Office once aptly remarked, presents are the best way to show someone how much you care. While the fictional character was referring to Christmas, the same holds true for all important occasions in a year, including weddings.
Wedding gifts are unique, in that, it is both exciting and challenging to pick and gift! While we can all agree that choosing the perfect wedding gift is an art of perfection, we do have some useful recommendations for selecting the ultimate gift for the happy couple.
The power of personalization
Want to gift something which is sure to have a lasting impression? Why not add a shade of personalization to your wedding gift. Be it something as simple as matching handcrafted leather luggage tags or even something as classy as engraved cheese boards or brassware. Personalized wedding gifts remind the happy couple how much they mean to the guests.
Some DIY magic!
The real charm about gifts is instantly elevated when it’s made or put together by you. For those who are also particularly short on time and budget leading up to the wedding, DIY wedding gifts are a great solution. We’re talking coasters made of polymer clay and imprinted with dried plants for a lifetime of drinks and revelry awaiting the couple, or even infused bath salts to set the mood for romance up ahead. We recommend putting together a package of DIY gifts instead of individual ones, to fully exemplify the deserving impression of thought and utility which goes behind it.
