Here are some top ideas to help you give a gift that is not only well accepted and wanted, but one that will give memories to last a lifetime and make you stand out from the crowd with the thought and effort you put into it.)
When you get invited to a wedding, you need to start thinking of that all important wedding gift you need to buy for the bride and groom. Picking a wedding gift can often be a daunting and challenging task no matter what relation you are to the happy couple. You want to choose a wedding gift that will be appreciated, something they really want and will help to make their new life as Mr and Mrs happy.
People are not as traditional as years gone by and in this modern world most people already live together before getting married. They have already built a home together and have all the things a home would need. This means the traditional wedding gift of an age gone by that you used to take to a wedding like household appliances or other wedding gifts for the home are not necessarily needed.
While it’s true the happy couple may need a new toaster oven or new towels, you want to be the guest that stands out and gives them a wedding gift to remember and one they will probably tell others about.

When it comes to gift giving some people feel it is about buying the most expensive gift or the biggest gift that matters, but that is generally not the case. When you put time and thought into a gift, it means so much more to the person receiving it than just picking a gift because it is big or expensive. People can tell when you have gone above and beyond by putting thought into a gift and will love and appreciate it so much more no matter how big or expensive.
If you want to stand out above the other wedding guests and give the happy couple a gift they will always remember from their special day, here are some great ideas.
While many people think that giving money seems impersonal and lacks thought, it can actually have quite the opposite effect. The couple may have registered for gifts and thought long and hard about what to register for, but you can guarantee they will have gone down the traditional route of asking for things in the home. So they may really be thinking that rather than a new set of towels, what they really want is to redesign their bathroom or some other room in the home, or maybe even their garden.
These are not wedding gifts they can very well ask for on their registry so they will often end up with new household items. While these will be new upgrades to ones they already have they are not really necessary and are unlikely to be a memorable wedding gift.
With a gift of money the couple can choose what they use it for and let’s face it most couples are saving for something or have some plans which they put on hold until they have the spare cash.
By giving a gift of cash you will be allowing them to see the reality of their true dreams and allow them to get something they really wanted but didn’t feel they could put on the registry.
You don’t just have to give it them as a check or a pile of cash in an envelope. Be creative with how you give it. Combine it with a beautiful picture frame or a bottle of champagne. That way when they spend the money and get something they really want they can celebrate with a glass of bubbly or take a picture and frame it to show what they achieved and this will create a memory to last a
However you give it you can guarantee it will be a gift which is appreciated and will definitely be remembered.
2. Honeymoon Gift
Do some research and find out where the happy couple are going on their honeymoon. If it’s a place you’ve been before it’s likely you will know some great restaurants and what a great idea it would be to arrange a romantic meal or a delightful brunch there for the happy couple to enjoy. Maybe there is a beautiful picturesque place they could visit which you can arrange an excursion for them to go and see, or an experience they would enjoy like zip wiring or snorkeling with turtles or other marine life.
Even if you don’t have knowledge of the place, these things are easy to find out and something to consider arranging to give them that extra memorable experience on their honeymoon giving them memories to treasure forever.
You could even pay for an upgrade of their seats on the flight to first class or a room upgrade at the hotel for a honeymoon suite. Even think about a smaller wedding gift of a camera with a personal note from you about taking some cherished photos while on their honeymoon or a guidebook of the place they are going with some cash inside for them to spend and make more memories.

3. Expensive Item from Their Registry
When a couple registers items for their registry you will often find some extravagant and expensive items on it, ones which the couple would really love but ones which they can’t really justify spending their money on when they have countless other things they should be using their money for. Often these items are things they can only dream about and will certainly not imagine that anyone will gift to them at their wedding.
This is where you could make those dreams come true and be among the happy couples memories forever as someone who made their special day even more special.
Maybe you are wealthy enough to buy this wedding gift on your own and that’s great. If not get together with some other guests and pool your money together to buy it.
Enjoy the look on their faces when the happy couple sees it and make their dream come true. You will not only be remembered for buying this expensive gift you will also be remembered for the lengths you went to by getting others involved to help the happy couple’s dream become a reality.
4. A Thoughtful Gift
Anyone can take a look at the registry the happy couple has made but try taking a look at it from a different angle. If you want to give a wedding gift that will be remembered you need to put time and thought into it. Think about all you know about the couple and get creative.
You can easily choose a gift from their registry and go out and buy it have it wrapped all pretty but will that make it stand out from the rest or make it a more memorable one for the happy couple? It’s unlikely to have that effect.
If you go the extra mile and choose something from their registry then get it customized, it is far more likely to be one they will remember and talk about because you have not only given them something they wanted you have put thought and effort into making it something special just for them.
It could be a personalized matching pair of bathrobes with the pet names they have for each other embroidered into them, or a set of towels but you have had their new last name embroidered into them. By doing something so simple you just went a step further to make it a more special gift.
You could get them a photo frame which is engraved or another keepsake item that you can have engraved such as a vase or a pair of crystal glasses. You could even get a bottle of fine wine or scotch to go with those glasses, one which will age perfectly and give them instructions not to open it until their 10th anniversary.

If you put thought into the gift you are buying rather than just pick something from the registry you can guarantee it will be one the couple will remember and one they will be telling everyone about.
5. Luxurious First Night as a
Give the happy couple something extra special to remember on their first night as a married couple. Be sure to check with the mother of the bride or the maid of honor first to make sure they don’t already have plans.
Arrange a special room in a luxurious hotel so that they can enjoy their first night as Mr and Mrs in pure luxury surrounded by extravagance and beautiful things that they will remember forever.
If they already have plans that doesn’t mean the end of your idea. Contact the hotel they are going to to arrange a special couples massage or a relaxing spa treatment. If that is not something the happy couple are in to, arrange a luxury champagne breakfast in bed or a romantic brunch to enjoy on a picturesque balcony. You could even get them an upgrade of their room if there is one available.
Even if the room has already been booked and luxury therapies have been arranged, there are still opportunities to give them something to make their night even more extraordinary. You could arrange a special car or mode of transport close to their heart or dreams like a horse and carriage, a helicopter or a Ferrari to take them to the hotel and allow them to arrive like VIP’s, or even some champagne and chocolates waiting for them in the room as they arrive.
Make sure to give this wedding gift early though so that they can be sure to include it in their plans. There are many opportunities to make their experience more memorable and by adding your personal touch to their special night you will also be remembered for making their special day even more special with memories
that will last forever.
Receiving an invitation to attend a wedding is showing you that you mean something to the happy couple by wanting you there on their very special day. By putting time, thought and effort into your wedding gift you will be showing them how special they are to you.
Weddings are special moments in life which create memories forever and by giving a special gift you will be in those memories too. It’s not always about spending extravagant amounts of money. More importantly it is the thought that goes into the gift giving. This is what makes it special and special things are what we keep in our lives and in our memories.
Knowing the couple well and doing your research will most definitely pay off and have them telling everyone what lengths you went to to make their special day even more special.
There are many things to buy as gifts but ones with thought put into them stay held within cherished memories for much longer. The ideas above are some of the top wedding gift ideas but by opening your mind your opportunities are endless.
You could even consider making a donation to charity in the couples
name as some couples have charities which they hold dear to their heart. If they have already established a home, they will much more likely appreciate that a donation made possible by them is giving much needed help to others. Far more memorable and useful than a set of towels which they probably have a cupboard full of.
The bottom line is if you want to stand out from the crowd and give a gift that will be remembered or looked upon for years to come, don’t just simply pick something from the registry. Add your own personal touches to it and show the happy couple how much they mean to you and how much you want to make their special day memorable and unique.
Don’t just attend their special day, be a part of their special day.
