Find The Best Gay & Lesbian Wedding Gifts
Traditional Wedding Presents
Well the whole focal point of gift giving at weddings, is to give the new couple a head start with their marriage. A lot of times, especially in italian weddings envelopes of cash are given as a way to help the couple start their new life's together. But below is some traditional gifts, along with alternative gifts for the new couple.
- Dishes: Giving dishes is a fail-safe gift. Roaster, blenders, pots and pans are the usual in this category. But think of uniqueness when thinking of a gift. Maybe giving something like a wine rack or a unique monogrammed wine cooler will put your gift over the top.
- Picture Frames: To help the couple remember their special day, a personalized picture frame to put their wedding photos in.
- Furniture: If the new couple are moving into a new house, and you have the type of cash to spend, a new bed, coffee table, or love seat is a definate plus.
- Linens: Maybe buying the new couple a new set of bed linens will help with their new bed.
Wedding Gift Registries
There's alot more to signing up at a wedding registry than most couples think. Most couples should think of these few questions when determing a registry.
- What should you register for?
- How many registries should you sign up with?
- The prices of the items on your registry
You should consider what you will need for your new household. This is a perfect time to stock up on dishes, linens, crystal, silverware, and china. It's best for you to consider the place you register at. Registering at major national registries that offer online registering is best.
