A Guide To Buying Wedding Gifts
Shopping for wedding gifts is a notoriously difficult affair. Especially, when you have a tight budget. Although you may be conscious of overspending, you don’t want to disappoint the happy couple either, not to mention the social stigmas. Competition for acceptable presents is a pressure situation. So, we have prepared a guide to help inspire your decision and take the stress out of buying wedding presents you can afford.
The easy way out of buying a wedding gift is obviously to choose something from the wedding couples’ wish list. But if there is nothing you can afford on there, you could end up looking cheap. Remember, the wedding gift list is only a suggestion, not an obligation. Check out the list anyway so you can buy something that nobody else will be buying.
Furthermore, there is no standard price limit when it comes to buying wedding gifts – even if it’s your best friend’s wedding, you shouldn’t feel obligated to splash out. If the couple are true friends, they will understand. You should let your friendship govern your selection, not the size of your bank account.
Buy from the heartAs a general rule, avoid quirky gifts. Classic presents are always the safer option and less likely to offend anyone. The best thing to do is think from the heart and offer a gift that has meaning. Sentimental value means more than monetary value. Alternatively, offer the sentiment on the card that accompanies your gift. If you purchase an item with a special meaning behind the thought, the recipients may not necessarily understand it. However, by making a relevant comment in your card, the message gets across and the emotional value is literally ‘heart-felt.’To give you an example of a sentimental gift, why not create a montage of photographic moments you have shared with the loving couple over the years. You can either frame the photos featuring some of your favourite moments together or create a scrapbook with little notes as a side commentary.
Budget wedding giftsThere is also nothing wrong in clubbing together with the bride and groom’s closest friends to buy an extra special gift that is unique and memorable. If the gift is too expensive for one person, grouping together to buy something worthwhile provides a solution that is satisfying for a number of people – including the bride and groom. If you are on a tight budget but want to give the married couple something meaningful, why not buy a gift you can personalise with their names. You can get loads of cheap wedding gifts that will suit your budget and adding names only costs a couple of pounds extra, but is a sentiment that is invaluable.
