Personalized Wine Box Set Give something unique and something that can be cherished for years to come. Get the couple a personalized wine box set that is made to reveal a bottle of wine one at a time, for a special occasion. The box indicates a “when to open” date and a personalized message for the couple to read. These can be saved for the 6 month mark, the 1st year anniversary, or even the 10th. Give the couple something to look forward to, something to display, and something that brings back their wedding day every time they open a new bottle.
Espresso/ Coffee machine More likely than not, the new couple will be entering in their life together with not so up-to-date gadgets. Give them a top-of-the-line espresso or coffee maker for their new home. The couple will love to have something that produces the finest espresso or coffee and know that it is all theirs. They deserve to start their new life off together with the great quality items in their home and an espresso machine is perfect for that!
Fine China Most couples choose two patterns of china, one for daily use and one for their fine china. The daily china is typically affordable and something the couple could buy for themselves. However, the fine china is usually expensive and makes a wonderful wedding gift. Couples will love receiving fine china from their friends and family because it means they will have less to buy. Many times couples end up with enough fine china to complete an eight piece setting. Some couples receive more and others less but the great thing is that every dish received is one less the couple must buy for themselves.
Cash Couples love cash gifts for their wedding because it allows them to save the money and buy one big item or else spend it on their honeymoon. There is nothing like having some extra cash to take on your honeymoon so you can really enjoy everything the location has to offer. Many couples receive money and while checks are acceptable cash is really the best. It can be used right away and is really a very thoughtful gift. Be sure to include the cash in a card with your name on it so the couple knows who was so generous to them at such a special time.
