Choosing a wedding gift can often entail a gruelling task of trial and error – especially if the bride and groom don’t have a registry list!
To avoid being too mainstream, it’s best to steer clear of any traditional appliance (we’re talking toasters, coffee machines, etc), but make your gift stand-out by choosing just some of our favourites instead.
Who doesn’t love a bit of bubbly every now and then? A basket of fresh red, white, and dessert wines is the perfect gift for a budding wine connoisseur, with personalised notes on each bottle.
There are tonnes of sellers on Etsy who create personalised gifts for every occasion, so why not get creative and collaborate on a personalised piece of art for the bride and groom. Their names intertwined with the wedding date is something that can cherish forever!
Something fun and useful could be a set of personalised wedding coasters in memento of their big day. Or, you could just have something cute such as ‘Mr and Mrs’ on there instead – they are sure to prove useful when guests come to visit.
- Spellcheck: Before sending everything to the seller, make sure you have correctly added the name, date, and any other important information.
- Back-up present: When dealing with a third party, it’s important to have a back-up present in case something goes wrong with your first idea. This is important if you’re having something sent from overseas, and you should always take into consideration the shipping and handling times.
- Check the dimensions: Sometimes dimensions on the website aren’t a proper representation of the real thing. Take out a measuring tape and make sure you’re happy with what these products will look like.
- Insurance: Just in case the shipment goes missing, pay for insurance to make sure you’re well compensated. If you can, track the shipment every few days to see how long it takes to get to you.
