Three Unusual Gift Ideas
Its always wonderful when you get an invitation to a wedding. It is a joyous occasion and guaranteed to be a good time. But as you get closer to the event the panic starts to set in as you realise that not only do you have to get a new outfit, but you are also obliged to get the bride and groom to be a gift. Many modern couples ask for money towards a house or a honeymoon. However many people still like to give a traditional gift to celebrate their future life together.

There are many sorts of gifts to consider, but what is traditional for a wedding gift is something for the couples home, and something that will appeal to the bride as well as the groom. People generally like to give gifts that are a luxury and which the bride and groom would probably not buy for themselves as there are more budget options available.

Here a couple of ideas to consider:

Gifts for the lounge
Consider a beautiful gift that the couple will cherish forever in their home, something that is an interesting focal point and is timeless. Some ideas are a world globe, a rare and beautiful house plant, or how about a designer painting, or something less personal like a designer vase or a mirror.

Gifts for the kitchen
Cooking is not just a necessity but an activity that many people enjoy and find pleasure in. Consider a gift for the kitchen such as a coffee machine, maybe an old-fashioned cake-mixer, or even a set of professional knives? Sabatier knives are a particular favourite for gifts as they are not only beautifully packaged but also are made to the highest quality.

Gifts for fine dining
With the recession came many changes in the way people spent their free time. The number of people eating out declined as many chose to eat at home instead, discovering the joys of dinner parties rather than spending their money in expensive restaurants. The Come Dine With Me phenomenon has created a surge in home dining product sales, with many people choosing to re-create the restaurant atmosphere in their own homes. A wise gift choice for a newly married couple would be something along these lines such as a set of designer crockery or cutlery, or even a set of extremely fashionable slate placemats.

The most important thing to consider when choosing a wedding gift is to give yourself enough time and really think about the couple in question; what are their likes, dislikes, how do they spend their free time? Taking all this into consideration you are sure to find the perfect gift that will be treasured for years to come.
