Wedding season is just around the corner — and with it, the desire to find that perfect present that captures your admiration and affection for the happy couple. Before you get overwhelmed in trying to hand select that ideal gift, here are a few tips to make wedding gift shopping a breeze.
First, remember that your taste may not be everyone’s taste. Back away from the ceramic monkey, and look for gifts that will have timeless appeal, no matter how often trends change.
Next, if the couple has a registry, there’s nothing wrong with picking items from it — after all, they wouldn’t ask for them if they didn’t need them! If you’re trying to prioritize which items to actually pick, consider opting for a gift that offers a great warranty or will be the most useful — think: Bed sheets over ice buckets.
Finally, don’t be afraid to infuse your gift with a little creativity, especially if you know the couple well. A heartfelt gift that reflects the couple’s interests, relationship history, or wedding theme can be extra meaningful.
Before the couple says “I do,” here are 24 fantastic gift ideas you’ll have no trouble saying yes to!
