The bride and groom give each other their hearts, wedding rings, trust, and lives, and often choose to offer each other a special wedding gift.
A wedding gift for your beloved doesn’t need to be expensive, but it should be of value in a sentimental way and come from your heart, a unique or treasured memento to express that you are thankful you are becoming man and wife.
One bride I know purchased a set of luggage and filled each piece with its respective items for her husband-to-be. The garment bag held a suit, complete with a crisp, white shirt and matching tie, one of the suitcases held shoes, socks, and belt complimenting the suit, another contained t-shirts, jeans, ankle socks, and underwear. In the toiletry bag she placed her favorite cologne, a toothbrush and toothpaste, a razor, and various other personal items. He presented her with a large, numbered print-on-canvas of her favorite artist, and selected the matting and frame to suit the painting. That bride’s gift to her Love was one of the most unique I’ve seen, his to her has risen in monetary value and is among her most treasured possessions. Another friend gave her husband a winch for his Jeep! One couple went out to dinner as their gift to each other. They called it their “last date as single people”. They ate too much, paid too much, drank too much, and had a ball.
More traditional wedding presents are items such as desk sets, a camera, a string of pearls, diamond earrings, a watch, or any piece of jewelry, a monogrammed shirt, a pen inscribed with your wedding date, or even a car.
Consider your partner’s personality, interests, hobbies, and dreams when considering your present. Guys, a day at the spa may be the perfect gift for your bride. Ladies, perhaps the complete set of Mark Twain’s writings would be the best idea for your man. Golf clubs, a front porch swing, a puppy, an Ipad, a BBQ grill…whatever you choose to present as your gift, make it a gift from your heart, and it will be perfect.
