Bridal registries help wedding couples get the gifts they want. Thanks to this curated gift list, the bride and groom as less likely to spend hours returning gifts like duplicate toasters, the wrong color serving dish, and random cooking pots. But the registry isn’t perfect. The couple may still receive incomplete dish sets, half of the towels needed, and none of the flatware on the list. No wonder gift cards are an increasingly popular item on gift registries.
Below are some wedding gift ideas that are easy to make and fun to give:
Family Kitchen. Find an old picture of the bride, cooking in the kitchen as a child. Add the words, “All grown up” to the gift card’s embossed message line. Deliver the wedding gift card tucked into a cookbook or into the pocket of a new apron. Add a family recipe that’s been passed down for generations.
Honeymoon Heaven. Upload a photo of the happy couple hanging out on the beach, at a family barbeque, or rafting on the river. Use the image to make a personalized gift card and write, “Have fun together” on the gift card. Deliver the gift card with “His and Hers” sunscreen, beach towels, or sport bottles. Write “Hope the honeymoon never ends” on the personalized greeting card that holds the wedding gift card.
Two Become One. Use the couple’s engagement photo to make a personalized gift card and write “Two become one” on the card’s embossed message line. To make the gift more sentimental, deliver it with a two-photo frame that has a picture of the bride on one side and a picture of the groom on the other.
