September and October seem to be marked by a flurry of fall weddings, and according to The Knot, those two months actually held seven of last year’s ten most popular wedding dates. In other words, we’ve officially entered wedding season!
With sweet ceremonies, beautiful backdrops and receptions flowing with delicious food and drink, weddings are always fun to attend.
However, finding the right gift can be tricky. What if you waited too long and the registry doesn’t have anything left within your budget? How do you find an appropriate gift when you don’t have a registry link? Where do you start when you want to put together a special gift?
We’d love to share the solutions we’ve found. Here are two affordable wedding gift ideas that will mean the world to your friends or family member on their special day.
Home Sweet Home Basket
A gift basket is always a great choice because it’s actually multiple gifts presented in a way that’s even more pleasing to the eye.
This particular basket is the perfect housewarming present for a recently married couple, and it won’t come close to breaking the bank. The pillow will make the house feel a little more like home. A scented candle is always useful, and there is no such thing as “too many throws” around the house.
The basket itself serves as a bonus gift. It will be a fun place to store items for years to come, or maybe it will become a wedding gift for another happy couple in the coming years.
A Pitcher-Perfect Present
If you want to elevate the gift basket idea, use a pitcher to house items instead.
This particular pitcher is full of kitchen essentials. Kitchen towels are a must in any kitchen, and these (from the famous hands of Rae Dunn) add some extra flair. The whisk, spoon and spatula are worth their weight in gold. All three utensils will be staples in the newly married couple’s space, and the pitcher can be used to pour out drinks for guests.
Want to take it up another notch? Try adding some fresh fruit to really make it a look to remember.
