How to Pinpoint a Perfect Wedding Gift (On or Off Registry)
You want to fête your darling bride-and-groom-to-be with a wedding gift for the big day, and beyond - but that bridal registry looks totally picked over. How do you find the right wedding gift? There are the practical gifts that every couple needs, and then there are the covetable gifts guaranteed to be right up her alley. Choose a traditional or non-traditional wedding gift she'll love to receive (and don't forget to wrap it up with ribbons!).
Upgrade the everyday
Give a wedding gift that delivers an upgrade on home essentials. Look for oh-so-special bed linens, matching aprons, or even a fun doormat to welcome the happy couple home.
Pick up the tab
Give the couple a night off from cooking, for when it's back to reality after the honeymoon. Beyond a gift card, you could give a pizza of the month or dessert club as an unexpected treat.
Find keepsakes that feel fresh and modern
If everything left on the registry looks out of budget for you, choose a sentimental wedding gift. You can frame the wedding invitation or pick a personalized gift centered on their name, wedding date, or a photo of the couple.
Think about the honeymoon
Choose a wedding gift that's perfect for the honeymoon - like a pretty set of pajamas, stylish dopp kit, or fun camera for taking selfies.
Consider their passions
Think about what the couple cares about. If it's the environment, find a top-of-the-line composter. If the pair loves to entertain, give a handy drink dispenser for serving a signature drink at the next party.
Choose anything with initials
The classic monogram is still a win for any wedding gift. From blankets to glassware, stamp those initials on an accent for their home.
If you know her style, go for it
One-of-a-kind art and unique gifts are risky choices if you don't know the couple well. But if this is your BFF, you can unabashedly go for it. Just be sure to choose a wedding gift that's about her likes, not yours.
