Weddings are wonderful and being invited to celebrate with a happy couple is an honor. Part of being a good wedding guest will be to give a gift (within your means of course) that the bride and groom will appreciate and love. There are a lot of different types of wedding presents you can give; such as funny gifts like corny couples board games, wedding day wedding gifts like the traditional bridal handkerchief or helping pay for a specific part of the wedding, and then there are the gifts that help the bride and groom build their home together. Within this last category there really are two types of home building gifts you can give – the utilitarian and of use gifts or the more aesthetic home decor type gifts. So let’s ask this question: Does a toaster make a house feel like a home or does a throw pillow?
Here are some gifts that we feel help couples build their home.
Help the bride and groom get ready to be hosts! One of the first things couples have a tendency to like to do after moving into their new place and new life is to invite in family and friends to celebrate. It is likely that unless they received party platters and serving dishes for wedding gifts that they will be prepared. While these may not be an item that is out on display all of the time, they are a great home builder and a step up from their first house party treats being served on paper plates! Another gift we have that is on a similar thread is a party glassware set or a cake plate. These types of gifts always come in handy, but tend to be hard to justify buying when you are on a newlywed budget, making it a perfect gift to give!
Yes coasters. It might seem silly, but it is little items like this that can take an empty space and start to make it feel more like people live and love there! What is neat about these coasters is they are meant to be designed with the state the couple is starting their home in. This is a type of gift that a couple will appreciate because it is not one they are likely to consider buying for themselves, but their individualized design make them a great addition to their home. Other gifts that fit this useful but decorative category are things like a hanging key holder, throw pillows, throw blankets, candles, and decorative picture frames.
