2) High Quality Pots and Pans

Pots and pans are one of the number one household items that are taken for granted and that can make all the difference in a couples family dinner game. It may be a good idea to either go off the couples registry or ask if they prefer copper, stainless steal, or ceramic, etc. This may not be the most important decision they make in life, but it is a pretty big one. Most Practical Wedding Gift

 3) Gift Cards

A lot of people think that gift cards are not personal enough for a wedding gift. However, as many newlyweds will tell you, pulling out that $100 gift card when they need it most is a pretty spectacular gift.  One bride even said that she had forgotten about a gift card and found it about three months after the wedding. "It was so awesome! I thought it was a $5 gift card that I got in a promotional purchase, but it turned out to have over $100 on it and covered everything we needed and still had some left over. BEST. GIFT. EVER!"

Gifts That Help Couples Go From Wedding to Home

Weddings are wonderful and being invited to celebrate with a happy couple is an honor. Part of being a good wedding guest will be to give a gift (within your means of course) that the bride and groom will appreciate and love. There are a lot of different types of wedding presents you can give; such as funny gifts like corny couples board games, wedding day wedding gifts like the traditional bridal handkerchief or helping pay for a specific part of the wedding, and then there are the gifts that help the bride and groom build their home together. Within this last category there really are two types of home building gifts you can give - the utilitarian and of use gifts or the more aesthetic home decor type gifts. So let's ask this question: Does a toaster make a house feel like a home or does a throw pillow?

Here are some gifts that we feel help couples build their home. Help the bride and groom get ready to be hosts! One of the first things couples have a tendency to like to do after moving into their new place and new life is to invite in family and friends to celebrate. It is likely that unless they received party platters and serving dishes for wedding gifts that they will be prepared. While these may not be an item that is out on display all of the time, they are a great home builder and a step up from their first house party treats being served on paper plates! Another gift we have that is on a similar thread is a party glassware set or a cake plate. These types of gifts always come in handy, but tend to be hard to justify buying when you are on a newlywed budget, making it a perfect gift to give! Home State Glass Coasters (Set of 4) Yes coasters. It might seem silly, but it is little items like this that can take an empty space and start to make it feel more like people live and love there! What is neat about these coasters is they are meant to be designed with the state the couple is starting their home in. This is a type of gift that a couple will appreciate because it is not one they are likely to consider buying for themselves, but their individualized design make them a great addition to their home. Other gifts that fit this useful but decorative category are things like a hanging key holder, throw pillows, throw blankets, candles, and decorative picture frames.

A Gift from You to Your Groom: Don't Forget it is His Wedding Too!

A Gift from You to Your Groom: Don't Forget it is His Wedding Too! When people bring up wedding planning and that "big day", they usually focus on the bride and what she wants. Now, this isn't wrong or bad. A majority of brides have been day dreaming about their wedding day since they were little girls. This does not, however, that there are not any grooms out there that haven't been doing the same, and even if they have not, that does not take away from the fact that it is there wedding day too. So, we would suggest making sure your groom is given the same amount of doting as the bride. 

NFL Engraved Pint Glasses Start by treating him to a night out with the boys to celebrate his new commitment. Why only have him celebrate at his bachelor's party? Through all the stress of wedding planning, relaxing with the guys and watching the sports game will be the perfect way to keep tempers down, just like the bride needs time with her girls to get pedicures and catch a chick flick. What better way to make sure your groom knows you appreciate his support and help then gifting him with sports paraphernalia like the above engraved pint glasses and a free night to not worry about wedding planning woes? 

Black Border Designer Cuff Links & Tie Clip Then treat him to some masculine wedding "bling". One of the perks of the wedding day for a bride is the excuse to get new earring, bracelets, or necklaces to accessorize with her beautiful wedding dress. Typically, this means getting the best jewelry to create the best and most classy wedding look.  Why should the bride be the only one to enjoy some classy glitz. So, go order your groom some cuff links and a tie clip to dress his wedding suite. This is the time to let yourself buy things that you wouldn't typically have reason or justification for spending the money on.

Unique Wedding Gift Ideas

Being invited to join a bride and groom on their wedding day is a special privilege. It is important to show your support for the new couple on their special day, not only by attending, but also by giving a gift.  You may decide to give a gift designed for both the bride and groom, or to the bride and groom individually, depending on your relationship with each.  So what gifts can you give? Here are a few ideas: For the Bride: Something Sweet and Sentimental A Bride's Tradition (From Friend or Family to the Bride) Wedding Handkerchief

One traditional gift for the bride is the wedding handkerchief. This is a gift that is appropriate from a family member or a friend who is extremely close to the family and more particularly the bride. This can be a particularly sweet gift from the father of the bride. The handkerchief in the image above comes with a sweet poem card, a lucky penny, and a blue ribbon; All of which are meant to help tell the bride just how happy you are for her and to wish the happy couple the best. Other handkerchiefs can be embroidered with sweet sentiments or customized with the names of the bride and groom, the date of the wedding, or perhaps their favorite scripture. 

Help the Couple Make their House(or apartment) a Home Home State Throw Pillow

A sweet, and less intimate gift, is customized home decor. Be it a painting, print, or embroidered pillow, a bride always appreciates something nice for her home that represents her love with her groom. A popular trend is home-state decor. These come in a variety of shapes, but are designed to have the home state of the bride and the groom brought together or the state they are beginning their home in printed on the canvas, blanket, or pillow.  Linen Hemstitch Napkins

Every newlywed appreciates kitchenware items to build their home, but if you are going the kitchenware route, take it one step farther and make it unique for your blushing bride. Monogramming everything you own may be a trend of the past, but monogramming wedding gifts to symbolize the union of two families, is a trend happening right now. If you know the bride and groom have a taste for whine, then why not give the gift of a personalized whine decanter or whine glasses? Or if your Bride is often a hostess or you know she has a particularly sweet sweet-tooth then a personalized dessert bowl would be a perfect gift.

Wedding Woes that can Wait

Planning a wedding seems to happen all at once - all of the decisions feel equally important and relevant when you're first engaged and you're caught in a flurry of congratulations and furious planning. Before you drive yourself crazy with details and dahlias, what tasks can be delegated down or saved for later? Here's a short list of tasks and tribulations that you can put on the backburner:   Picking the Bridal Party
Many a retrospective and once-overly-enthusiastic bride will tell you this: don't pick your bridal party too early. If you're still more than a year away from the wedding, keep your #1 pick for Maid of Honor and Flower Girl under wraps. Relationships change, people move away or begin doctorate programs. While your bridal party has only one responsibility - showing up and wearing nice, pre-selected clothes - you want to be sure that the men and women in your line are the friends and family you really want behind you on your wedding day. There's no harm in just waiting it out! Snapping Engagement Photos
Even though they're called "engagement photo shoots" they don't have to be planned and finished within the first few weeks of your engagement. The point of an engagement photo shoot is to showcase your relationship in an environment in which you feel comfortable during a particularly happy time in your life. Some couples choose to use these photos in their "save the dates" or wedding invitations, but by no means is that a requirement. If you're already overburdened with other wedding woes, don't feel that you have to squeeze an engagement photo shoot in as well. Then again, if you could really use an afternoon of looking pretty and exploring your favorite museum or tide pool with your puppy and fiancé, go right ahead!   Selecting Wedding Gifts
Gifts are fun, and pre-planning gifts for your wedding can be just as enjoyable, but it can also take a lot out of you. Registering takes way more energy than you might think, and registering too early can spell disaster for your "early bird" wedding planning ideals. If you register more than a few months ahead of when your invitations go out, you run the risk of items being discontinued and matching dish sets being broken up. My advice is to go through retailers' websites, mark items that you're interested in, and put that list aside for later. Save the physical registration process for just a few months before the big day to save an even bigger hassle later.

A Worthwhile Personal Wedding Gift
