A 10-Point Plan for Resources (Without Being Overwhelmed)

Guide to Affordable Wedding Gifts

A wedding is always one of the most special and memorable events in the life of anyone, including you and the ones you love. It’s a kind of event that requires tons of preparation and a lot of money for planning alone. So, it isn’t really surprising if some couples are overwhelmed by the pressure of making the wedding as perfect as possible, especially through the eyes of the guests.

Now being one of the expected guests in a wedding, maybe of your friend or family, don’t assume that you don’t have any responsibility. Well, it’s actually already a custom to bring a wedding gift to the couple if you are invited as a guest. However, your biggest problem is that you don’t really have enough money to buy an expensive gift, but does it really need to be expensive?

By being resourceful, you actually don’t need to shell out a lot of cash just to come up with a great wedding gift. Here are some ideas we compiled for you:

1 – Gifts with Embroidery

You probably are unaware, but newly-wed couples will surely appreciate you giving them embroidered items as gift for the wedding. Some embroidered items that newly-wed couples will find useful include bed linens, handkerchiefs, towels, and others. Embroidered items are great for two reasons: one is they’re very affordable, and two, they can be personalized in such a way that you can put in the couple’s initials or names in the items, giving them all the more reason to be grateful.

2 – Bobbleheads

But if you think someone else will be giving an embroidered item as a gift, then you might want to consider wedding bobbleheads instead. The same as the first option, bobbleheads can also be personalized in a way that you can make them look like the bride and the groom. Once they open the gift, you certainly will make them burst into laughter because of your humor.

3 – Dinner for the Couple

Furthermore, know that great wedding gifts aren’t just physical things. One creative way of ensuring that the couple will appreciate what you give them is surprise them with a dinner at a popular restaurant, but not necessarily an expensive one. If you really are a close friend of the two, you won’t have a problem figuring out what their favorite foods in the menu are.

4 – Romantic Date

This one’s literally similar to the previous option, but this time, you can choose a more private setting for them. You can add in anything that will make them remember the date night forever, including romantic music and some fancy wine.

5 – Practical Gifts

In the end, you probably will go for a gift that the couple can practically use. Well, you could be planning on giving them something they could use at home like cookware and kitchenware or maybe some small appliance; but then again, they probably already have those, too. We recommend unexpected but very fun stuff such as membership to a fitness center or park, Netflix subscription, or maybe a loyalty card from a local restaurant.
