Weddings happen any time of the year and when a family member, friend, relative or a person close to us is getting married, we sometimes feel the pressure of choosing the best gift to give to the betrothed couple. It surely is fun and a special event to look forward to but buying gifts for the wedding is somehow an expensive undertaking. Some of us are wondering how we can give our friends or loved ones a good present which they will appreciate and would also be within our price range.

Common gifts are usually kitchenware such as pots and pans or expensive cookware set, kitchen electronics like toasters, coffeemakers, food processors, etc. , luxury bath towels and bath accessories, gardening equipment and supplies. For some people who can spend much more for a gift, they would even give the newly weds a time to de-stress and pamper themselves for spa treatments or even a gift certificate for a luxurious resort. It really depends on what you would like to convey about your wedding gift. It’s up to you if you want it to be a sentimental reminder of the newly weds’ special day or if you want your gift to be fun and unique.

But we don’t really have to spend a lot for the gift because we can keep our costs to a minimum by being creative and by shopping smart. If you are the type of person who has a knack for creating handicrafts or any art work, then making a personalized gift would surely be a good option. There are times that the gift we intend to give is way out of our budget, then we could ask our other friends to share the cost and by doing so, all of you will have that thing as a group gift. Skills can also be offered as a wedding gift just like when you are good in organizing events, you can offer your service as one of the wedding coordinators. When you don’t have any skill to offer or money to spend for the gift, then you can look for things in your house which you have bought before but never used at all and make that as your wedding gift. It may not sound very nice but I think it would still boil down to the saying, “It’s the thought that counts.”
