With weddings being cancelled around the world due to the pandemic, some couples are choosing to move forward with their wedding day, even if that means doing so without guests!
If you happen to be one of these guests that won’t be able to attend, you can certainly make it up to the couple through gifting. Since couples supply a gift list to let friends and family know what they need or want – it’s best to stick to it and only buy items on their registry as no one wants to end up with three toasters and five kettles.
But if you want to take it a step further, here are four thoughtful newlywed ideas to give to your favorite couple on top of an item they’ve registered for.
Since we’re spending a lot more time indoors these days, you can never go wrong with some personalised items that the couple can use to turn their house into a cosy home.
Items such as monogrammed towels, engraved frames, metal wall decor for their wedding day backdrop, and custom throw blankets and pillows are all items that are worth the splurge, while being a constant reminder of who gave it to them.
Personalised items are always a big hit because they are not generally something you would purchase for yourself. It’s also a great way to show off how much thought you put into the gifts you give.
Having your best friend walk down the aisle without you by her side can seem crushing for the both of you. However, you can let your best friend know how much she means to you with a cute best friends gift. Small thoughtful gifts such as customisable best friend mugs that the two of you can use on the morning of her wedding day while enjoying a cup of coffee together over Facetime can be so meaningful to her and make her day even more special.
Like the saying goes, “The best gifts come in small packages”. The smallest gestures can be the biggest moments for your friendship.
Just like the bride can have her moment with her friends, the groom should also feel special on his wedding day. There’s no one better to share his day with than with his groomsmen. Show the groom how proud you are of him with a box of cigars you can all enjoy together over a Zoom session.
If you know his favourite bottle of spirits or wine, you can have the bottle engraved and sent to him prior to the wedding day to open and celebrate with his new bride and virtual guests.
Although travelling may not seem like the right thing to do at the moment, it doesn’t mean the couple can’t plan for a trip in the future. Gifting the newlyweds with a gift card to an airline or a well-known hotel chain with a variety of locations to choose from, or even a Visa gift card to help them put away some money, will make it possible for them to take their dream trip when everything is clear.
The best part about these gifts is that they can all be delivered to their front door and the couple doesn’t have to worry about hauling any gifts to and fro.
