Chic and Affordable Wedding Gifts
Many of us are lucky enough to be invited to a few weddings a year. In Spring they are particularly common. But with the expense of an outfit, travel, and accommodation wedding attendance can be become an expensive event! It’s likely that the bride and groom are special to you and that you want to give them a gift to commemorate the day. It can be tempting to go for something pricey and extravagant, especially if you are expecting some people to do the same. But it’s often far more sincere and cost effective to go for a small but meaningful gift. The bride and groom will be bombarded with gifts on their big day and a small gesture can be just as valuable and appreciated.
A Spa Day
There are many great deals and offers around on spa days all over the country. Although it may seem on the pricier side of affordable, there are usually lots of options. Some spas have an overnight stay and several treatments. But you can also opt simply for a relaxing facial or luxurious foot rub. A spa experience for you and the bride can be a great way for her to unwind after the stress of the big day. It’s a perfect time to catch up and to show her that her time with her friends is still valuable even now that she’s married.
A Photo Album
A wedding photo album will be expected after the event, but what about a photo album filled with your pre-wedding adventures? Pictures from the Hen Party and build up, and treasured earlier favourites can be a great way to get started. Many brides become nostalgic for their friends as they move into a new chapter of their lives. A photo album of some of your best memories together is the perfect way to communicate that you’ll always be friends and stay in touch.
A classic wedding gift is some sort of elaborate appliance for the kitchen. Especially if the bride and groom are about to move into a new home together. However, in favour of coffee makers and fancy processors, many people overlook the simpler items. Cutlery, the perfect wine glass, and simple tableware is often what the couple need most. But often people don’t think to give them as gifts! You can present something in a beautiful box with a handwritten note. Even an item as simple and affordable as a cutlery set will be original and much appreciated.
DVD Box Set
This gift can be presented somewhat tongue-in-cheek! After the Hen party, wedding night, honeymoon and other excessive nights out, the bride and groom will be ready to unwind. Cosy nights in after the chaos of the wedding can be a real treat. It’s a chance for the newly-weds to really relax in each other’s company especially if a house move has been involved as well. The great thing is, if you have seen the series, it can be a great topic of conversation for your next catch up!
