Unusual Wedding Gifts

By Jon Lee

If you ever get invited to a wedding you will probably have to buy the happy couple a gift. I have had to do this on numerous occasions but always ended up leaving it to the last minute. When you leave it to the last minute it adds to the pressure and in the end you don’t know what to buy.

There had been a recent trend of buying unusual wedding gifts and there are many reasons for it. More and more people are living together before they get married which means that they already have a lot of the traditional gift. Also, guests want to out do the other guest and buying unusual wedding gifts is a way to do it.

The last wedding that I was invited to was a medieval themed wedding. It looked like a strange type of event but the thing that sticks out in my mind was the way in which they helped the guests decide on gifts. They had lived together for a long time so asked for contributions to the honeymoon.

They didn’t just want the guests to give a flat amount towards the honeymoon they wanted it to be something more personal. They went through all the things they wanted to do on holiday such as meals, rock climbing etc. They then worked out the costs of each one.

You would then decide from that list what you wanted to buy for them. That would be anything from a lunch at the local restaurant or a horse riding lesson depending on the size of your budget. They have committed to taking a picture of them doing it and sending it through for the buyer to see.

As you can see from above it isn’t solely down to the guest to find unusual wedding gifts. The couple that are getting married can assist by producing a list.

As you can see there has been a rising trend in people purchasing unusual wedding gifts. To get more useful ideas and help with finding creative wedding gifts then please visit my website.
