Unique Gift Ideas for Wedding
When you want to gift something away to somebody, you must always have unique gift ideas. Otherwise, it becomes meaningless and purposeless. You decide upon the gift ideas for a marriage on the basis of your relationship with the person getting married, the person’s age, sex, status, hobbies, employment or profession, business, intellectual pursuits, personal traits or qualities and the family conditions.
When you plan your daughter's wedding, in countries like India, if you are a Hindu, you gift away Sridhana to your daughter. The term Sridhana connotes a wider meaning that includes everything that you gift away to your daughter when she gets married.Normally Sridhana includes cash in kind, gold in jewelry, sari in silk and cotton, material objects such as cot, Almira in wood or steel, household utensils in gold (rarely), brass, silver, ever silver, aluminum, linoleum, modern gadgets such as mixie, fridge, washing machine, etc and if you are affluent it is also customary to supply a new car or else a two-wheeler etc.Of course, you gift away all these things as a father. You buy all those things as advised by your spouse or as per the wishes of your daughter.
Another major reason playing a vital role in your unique gift ideas is your relationship with the person getting married. If you are very close to the person getting married, you prefer to gift away cash in kind or gold coins or jewelry in gold or silver and vessels made of silver, brass or ever-silver.
In fact when the person getting married is your friend or colleague or a co-worker or even your boss, you may have to think more about unique gift ideas. I count some of them as follows:-
Gift checks or Travellers checks or Travellers gift packages:-
Gift checks, travelers checks or travelers gift packages are really unique gift ideas.Normally you can encase the gift checks for their face value at any time. You can also use the travelers’ checks and travel gift packages as per the terms and conditions contained in them. In fact some newly married couple rather judiciously uses these gift travel packages for their honey moon or sight-seeing. But before gifting away such travel packages to any specific destination to your friends, please see that such travel destinations are trouble-free, providing a pleasant, enjoyable and memorable journey to the newly married couple. In fact, before gifting away such travel packages, normally the employees of an organization combine together to plan and think carefully in advance to see that the couple’s journey is free from any trouble and make it really enjoyable.
Books or subscription for journals:-
Books always make invaluable and unique wedding gifts .There are many kind of books that you can always gift away as unique wedding gifts.To mention a few: A hot selling novel or a very popular, useful and inspirational book such as ‘Think and Grow Rich’, books to follow by the people who are newly married and in the family way; books with guidance for rearing their children, books on culinary subjects, books on home keeping, books on keeping one’s general health, books that give tips how to stay slim etc. It is equally useful to gift away yearly subscriptions for popular men and women magazines or sports magazines.
Cosmetics and other miscellaneous items:-
People are not only health freak but they are equally interested in having the latest cosmetic items such as sweet smelling cents, creams, body lotions etc. Why not have them as gift articles? It is not a bad idea to give a pair of sports shoes, fancy chap pals and a pair of beautiful pillows with some nice embroidery work on it. It is also customary to gift away articles such as beautiful paintings, art works, statues and dolls. But before purchasing them, please think for a while whether they will be useful to the newly wedded couple. If your friend is a champion in chess, a badminton player or an ace tennis player or an established runner, it is always good and befitting to give an advanced book on chess or a unique chess board, badminton or tennis racket.
Before gifting away anything to the newly married couple, plan it well ahead before their wedding. Then take a decision on the gift article you propose to buy according to your available resources and in tune with the requirements of the newly married couple and their status into account. Once you have decided to buy anything with suitable alternatives, stick on with your decision and never change it. If you have really decided to gift away a unique gift article, you may have to spend many hours in acquiring it. If you do not get your gift articles or their alternatives and you are not willing to compromise with your unique gift ideas, then be ready to go for it and get it even by traveling a few hundreds of kilometers. After acquiring your unique gift articles, please see that you get them neatly packed and make your gift really unique.
