It can be really hard buying presents for a couple who have just gotten married but also for the Bride & Groom to decide what they want to receive. Traditional items for the couples house would have been brought, as couples would only move in together after they were married. Nowadays a lot more couple move in together before getting married so they will already have all the house items they need.
My Fiance and I decided to sign up to John Lewis Gift List as there are a few items we need for our house but also it’s a great way for guest to know what to buy you. With a gift list you choose the items you would like to receive and then guests can log into your account and buy items from your list. All the gifts that are purchased are then delivered to you after your wedding, you can also choose to have some items delivered before the wedding if you want them for your honeymoon. It’s a really easy process that means guest know exactly what you need.
Here some ideas for your gift list:
- Coffee Machine
- Crystal Glasses
- Crockery set
- Bed Throw
- Coffee Table
Money Toward’s Honeymoon
Another lovely wedding gift would be to ask your guests to put money towards your honeymoon. This is great if you don’t need anything and would rather have a more luxurious honeymoon and make memories that will last forever.
Honeymoon Destination Ideas:
- Disney Land (Florida)
Most Couples / Families have a charity that is very close to their heart so why not ask guests to donate to a charity of your choice instead of them giving you money. You might find you don’t need anything and would prefer to help out a charity instead. There are so many charities to choose from, you could always choose a couple if you can’t decide on one.
These are just a few ideas for wedding gifts that might help get your ideas going. There are so many different things you can do and remember to tell your guests about 2 months before the wedding so they are aware of what you want to do for your wedding gifts.
Happy wedding planning!
