Choosing the correct gift for someone can be a bit of a challenge at times and even more so for special occasions. In reality, it doesn’t have to be that way. Don’t worry about expectations. You can simply choose your own style of gift for an important event and eliminate the stress of the process.
If you are going to a wedding, chances are you are close to at least one of the people tying the knot. Using what you know about that person, their lifestyle, and even their personality can make the process of choosing a wedding gift impressive.
Skip the bridal registry
You can get a really nice present while going outside of the safe zone; better known as the bridal registry. Take a peek at the registry, if you wish, to see what they want for their new life together and get an idea of what you should look for. Then, you can buy something that will surprise them in a positive way.
Vases for the newlyweds
A nice vase, or a set of vases, can make a wonderful gift, just keep in mind your recipient’s décor and the style of their home. Do you get the feeling they are not sure what they want? You can always go for something neutral that will pretty much go with any décor style. One example is this fair trade, art glass hand blown vase on an iron stand from Mexico. It’s elegant, timeless, and really easy to place virtually anywhere in a home, despite the color scheme or décor style.
Candleholders to illuminate their new life?
Candleholders are a great wedding gift and often considered traditional. NOVICA artisans from around the world have created an amazing selection that will allow you to choose from simple, yet elegant, to striking and elaborate designs that are sure to impress anyone.
Might table lamps be a better fit?
If you like the idea of something to brighten up a room but are not quite sure about candleholders, a table lamp might be exactly what you need. Again, you can choose from many different styles and go with something elaborate or stay on the safe side with a more neutral style. This beautiful Puebla moon table lamp by the Sierra family in Mexico with fit with any décor.
A hammock for the backyard
Anyone with outdoor living space would love to have a hammock. This is another item where you can choose to go bold, or less so, and can pick from many different designs to match the newlyweds’ needs and lifestyle. This striking Sky Swing is a gorgeous blue cotton hammock swing from El Salvador.
Bring some color to the table
Make a typical gift like glassware extraordinary with a fun set of hand blown glasses like the Aurora recycled glass tumblers from Central America. There are numerous styles and types of glassware to choose from to wow your newlyweds.
Cantel blown-glass artisans will certainly catch everyone’s eye and if you want to go all out, add the Aurora hand-blown glass pitcher. You will have a beautiful, one-of-a-kind wedding gift to impress.
The options are endless but along with your unique gift, you know you are helping to support artisans from the far corners of the world to better their lives. Best of luck to the newly married couple!
