Gift Ideas beyond the Wedding Registry
In my opinion buying something on a registry can take away from the personal experience of gifting. I love taking time to think of a gift, package it perfectly and then give it to the recipient. With today’s technology you can click a few buttons and the gift is on its way, without you even seeing or touching it.
Here’s my suggested work around…
Buy something off the registry and give a personalized gift.
Have fun packaging it and enjoy!
Here’s a list of gifts that the couple likely doesn’t have on their registry but are sure to love!
- A bridal bouquet drawing
o This gift in most cases must be created after the wedding day. The drawing will be a replica of the bouquet from the wedding. This is unique gift because it’s specific to the couple’s day and their wedding. I suggest adding the Couple’s name, ex: Mr & Mrs Jones, and their wedding date.
- Home Drawing
o Often when a couple gets married, they move into a home together around the same time, so a custom home drawing is a unique gift to celebrate their lives joining in this way. You can add an “Established In” on the piece.
