Good gift giving is an art. Wedding gifts specially tend to be very difficult to pick. More often than not people find wedding gifting a tedious exercise with their choices limited to clichéd ‘His and Hers’ gift items and household appliances. Selecting a wedding gift for the bride is even harder as people tend to pick boring utilitarian gifts. While making this choice it is best to keep in mind the bride’s personality and her tastes so that you can find a gift that she will truly cherish. In this age of the internet there are a wide variety of products available online that would make very thoughtful and unusual wedding gifts for all the lovely brides out there.
With so many products to choose from, it is easy to lose focus and making a decision can ultimately become a very daunting task. To that end there are four parameters that can make your search a little more organized and you choice a little easier:
- The first factor to be considered is the nature of your relationship with the bride. This is crucial as it will determine the intimacy and personal nature of the gift you intend to buy her, as well as the amount of money you will be willing to spend on it.
- Always budget smart. Be realistic about how much money you can afford to spend on the present and how much you would actually want to spend on it. Once you have decided on a budget, stick to it. Do not get carried away by fancy packaging or deceived with hidden shipping costs.
- Choose considerately keeping in mind the bride’s particular likes and dislikes. You are not buying yourself a gift so do not choose based on your personal tastes and desires.
- Ensure that you get your money’s worth. Do your research, compare prices and keep an eye out for steals.
Here is a short list of unusual wedding gift ideas where you can find something appropriate depending on your budget, the nature of your relationship to the bride and in keeping with her personal likes and dislikes:
