Have you got a wedding to attend but you’re unsure what to get the bride and groom? Well, I have you covered with 5 wedding gifts to buy your friends. It can be hard to determine the perfect wedding gift, especially if you aren’t that close to the bride and groom or if you are on a tighter budget.
Therefore, I have complied a list of great wedding gifts that cater to all budgets and levels of friendship. Following this article will alleviate the pressure of buying a gift so you can focus on enjoying the wedding celebrations.
Mr & Mrs champagne flutes
Although this first gift is a staple gift, it’s great if you aren’t particularly close to the bride and groom or if you are on a tighter budget. Mr & Mrs champagne flutes are great keepsakes to get the happy couple and they’re relatively easy to find.
You can pick them up in stores such as the Card Factory, or you can order and personalise them on websites such as Etsy. This is a great way to celebrate the happy couple with a simple yet effective gift.
Personalised chopping board
If the bride and groom are major foodies, then a personalised chopping board is a great, unique gift to buy them. Once again, you can order this gift from websites such as Etsy for a fairly reasonable price.
I’d suggest getting the chopping board engraved with their names and their wedding date to make it special. Not only is this a practical gift but it also adds a personalised touch that is tailored to the bride and groom’s interests.
Custom dressing gowns
If your friends are getting married during Autumn/Winter, then a custom dressing gown is a great gift that they can use straight away. Order your friends a completely custom dressing gown that they can use in the cold evenings to stay warm.
You can then get their last name embroidered on the dressing gowns to make them personal.
An illustration of the bride and groom on their wedding day
Although you would have to wait until after the wedding to give this to your friends, an illustration is an extremely thoughtful and personal gift to give your friends. Simply take a picture of your friends together on their wedding day and send it into an illustrator. They will then transform your picture into a beautiful illustration that your friends can keep forever.
Premium bottle of their favourite alcohol & glasses
This is another great gift if you are on a tighter budget or if you aren’t that close to the bride and groom. Once you have determined their favourite alcohol, you can look on places like Amazon for a gift set containing that alcohol. If you have enough notice then Christmas is a great time to do this.
I’d also suggest pairing this with a set of luxury glasses that they can use.
Time to decide what wedding gift to buy your friend
Now that I have shared my top 5 wedding gifts to buy your friends, it’s time for you to decide which gift to get your loved ones and order it. If you are on a tighter budget, then I would suggest going for Mr & Mrs champagne flutes as you can pick these up in a lot of stores for a reasonable price.
If you are able to stretch your budget, then i would suggest going for a more luxurious gift such as a custom dressing gown as this is something that they can get a lot of use out of and it is personal to them. If you are going to get your friends personalised clothing, then ensure you get the text embroidered rather than printed as it is better quality.
