So the wedding is drawing close and things are getting hectic and stressful; time for a little appreciation for your better half! What better to show the woman you are about to marry how much she means to you with a wedding gift that is perfect for her. And no, gift wrapping yourself does not count… she already has you in the bag!
Many a groom have been utterly confused about what wedding gift to buy for their brides; but fret not it can be a cinch when you know what your bride really likes and where her interests lie. For a nearly fail-proof wedding gift you can start with jewellery. A pair of earrings, a pretty necklace or bracelet or even a matching set if the budget allows is a good gift idea. Pick up something she will truly like and is her style; to make it personal you can even have it inscribed with a special message or buy something like a charm bracelet with charms representing special moments in her life or your relationship. Even something she could wear for the wedding itself is great.
A wedding gift need not be something expected. You could plan for a gift that is interest based like a first edition print of her favourite novel, a painting, a getaway package for her and her best friend, a spa day, a romantic holiday for the two of two, dancing lessons etc., the sky is the limit. Think outside the box and aim for something that would please her and not something you think you are expected to buy. It could even be a designer pair of shoes or a handbag that she has been eyeing for a while but feels guilty spending on for herself. This kind of gift shows that you put a little thought into it and will definitely put a smile on her face. If your bride is the more practical type buy her a useful item like something gorgeous for your new home or a camera that you both can enjoy on a holiday.
Smaller sentimental gifts can also add a romantic touch and don’t need to break the bank. Consider gifts like a romantic faux vintage note in a bottle, a photo scrapbook of your journey together, a framed love letter, a home movie etc. , anything that would mean a lot to her. And one of the nicest gifts you can give your bride is something that you don’t need to buy or make – support during the stressful wedding planning months!
