A Creative Wedding Gift
will be appreciated !
Many new couples receive more picture frames, candy dishes and candle stick holders than they can
While these are all lovely gifts, they are also very common and not likely to stand out very much to the
On the other hand a wedding gift that is truly creative is likely to be well
appreciated by the bride and groom. A collection of board games can be a very creative and useful wedding gift.
Many couples enjoy entertaining and having a number of their friends over for dinner, drinks and
While this in itself is a great deal of fun, introducing board games can be a
competitive way to spice up the evening and bring laughter into the gathering. Everyone enjoys playing their
old favorite board games and many people also enjoy experimenting with new games. Giving the couple a
collection of board games as a wedding gift can lead to many nights of fun for the
couple and their friends.
Theme baskets also make wonderfulcreative wedding gift ideas. In creating a theme basket
you are only limited by your imagination in what to include in your basket. You could create baskets that are
cooking related, sports related or travel related.
The key to creating a theme basket that is not only creative but also appropriate for the couple is to keep in
mind their likes and dislikes. The couple that eats out every night of the week may not enjoy cooking and would
therefore not appreciate a basket full for recipes and kitchen utensils. , However, the couple with season tickets
to a particular sport may enjoy a basket filled with DVDs from a championship series as well as memorabilia from
their favorite sports team. A couple is likely to receive countless picture frames on their wedding but you can put
a twist on the idea of giving a picture frame to turn it into a more creative wedding
One way to do this is to purchase a large frame and insert an inexpensive print that the couple will appreciate
or a blown up picture of the two of them. This creative wedding gift stands out from the
traditional picture frame because it includes a photo and is ready for immediate display. Many picture frames
remain in the box for years while the couple tries to decide on the perfect picture to display in the frame but
giving the couple a framed portrait or print eliminates this dilemma.
Another creative wedding gift for a wedding is a personalized calendar. Many office supply stores will create a
calendar for you if you provide them with the twelve pictures that you would like to include in the calendar. This
creative gift idea can be created by an office supply store for a relatively low price or the wedding guest may opt
to create the calendar themselves on their own computers. It is very simple and many word processing programs offer
This creative wedding gift idea is sure to be appreciated by the new couple for its
practicality and originality. There are many companies that will create a print that has the appeal of a watercolor
painting from a photograph. Giving a wedding gift certificate
for this service can be a very creative gift idea. You may choose to give the gift certificate with instructions
for the couple to redeem the gift certificate to have a water color likeness created from one of their favorite
wedding pictures. If you have a copy of a picture that is flattering to both the bride and the groom you may want
to arrange for this service using the picture you have in lieu of giving the couple the gift certificate.
The one caveat to giving this wedding gift is to allow enough time for the print to be
created and returned to you so that you don’t have to present your wedding gift to the bride and
groom after their wedding date. If you plan to attend the wedding in person, it is appropriate to have the gift for
the bride and groom either at the wedding or else scheduled to arrive via shipping prior to the wedding date. A
couple that already has children may appreciate a wedding gift certificate stating that
you would be willing to baby-sit for the couple’s children once a month for the first year of their marriage.
This creative wedding gift is extremely useful for the couple because it allows them
one night a month to go out and enjoy themselves. Creative wedding gift ideas don’t have to be
expensive but they are often widely appreciated.
A creative wedding gift is likely to stand out from the more traditional gifts. Creative wedding gifts are also
likely to be greatly appreciated by the new couple.
