If you're soon to be attending a wedding and are looking for the ideal present to purchase (or even if you are the happy couple looking for wedding gift ideas) then you've come to the right place. From gifts for good causes to travellers cheques for honeymoons, this article is full of unique wedding gift ideas to help you buy (or receive) the perfect wedding presents.



Wedding Gift Ideas
Times, lifestyles and fashions change. Gone are the days when every couple lived apart before tying the knot and filled their wedding gift list full of the essential household items every new home owner could desire.


These days many couples co-habit before tying the knot, and the chances of them chomping at the bit for a toaster are relatively small. That said, numerous engaged couples still live separately and marriage not only represents a new chapter romantically, but also a new chapter domestically.


With such variations about, the happy couple is just as likely to appreciate cold hard cash as they are a set of stainless stell pans. So, if they haven't drafted a wedding gift list just what do you buy them?


In truth, if you are looking for wedding gift ideas, the list is relatively endless as tastes, circumstances and preferences vary so widely from couple to couple. That said, there are a number of gift options that prove popular and some others that are a little more unique that you could look to purchase...



Wedding Gift Ideas for the Home

Weddingsday Cutlery and Crockery: Ah, the wedding gift banker. We all need to eat, so why not do so with some decent stuff? If this is on your shortlist of wedding gift ideas, it's best to check out with the couples' parents if they have a favourite style/colour or if anyone else is planning to go down the same route.


Weddingsday Towels: Classy Egyptian cotton bath sheets make a welcome addition to any home  take a swerve on those bargain basement towels and plump for something stylish, just make sure it colour co-ordinates with their existing bathroom suite!


Weddingsday Small Electrical Items: Items such as kettles and irons are ideal for couples moving in together for the first time. If the newlyweds fall into this category, or if you know that they are still using a toaster from their student days, then these items make perfect wedding gift ideas.


Weddingsday Large Electrical Items: If you're willing to stretch a little further with your budget why not splash out on a new fridge freezer, washing machine, dishwasher etc for the happy couple.



Wedding Gift Ideas for the Honeymoon

Weddingsday Foreign Currency: An ideal gift for the impending honeymoon - just be sure you get the right currency!


Weddingsday Luggage: Essential for that impending holiday and asked for by many, many couples across the UK just make sure that you get it to them in plenty of time to use on their honeymoon!


Weddingsday Towels: Luxurious beach towels for use on honeymoon are good wedding gift ideas. These days, matching his and hers towels are readily available, as are 'Just Married' and personalised ones for use by the shore.



Modern Wedding Gift Ideas

Weddingsday Charitable Gifts for the UK: Running the Samaritans phone line for a day, providing days out for severely handicapped people, helping vulnerable young and elderly people across the country just some of the many worthy causes that all need your support. From as little as 10, gifts like these really make a difference and if the Bride an Groom (or Civil Partners) are the giving type then charitable gifts always make for a wonderful wedding present.


Weddingsday Charitable Gifts for Overseas: Be they goats or donkeys, field irrigation or mango plantations, we have seen them all. There are millions of people all around the world who dream of a chance of a better life and, by investing in such a wedding gift, their dreams can be helped turn into reality.


Weddingsday Activities: Ferrari racing days, wine tasting breaks, a day at the races, you name it, there's a gift experience or activity day to suit every taste and interest. From as little as 20, these are a fun way of giving a gift that gives the newlyweds something to look forward to on their return from honeymoon.


Weddingsday Money: Cash is always a bit tricky to ask so many couples will avoid doing so, even though it's what they really want. If you want to give a gift that will always be welcomed then don't be afraid to head down the money route.



Traditional Wedding Gift Ideas

Weddingsday Keepsakes: They'll never get married again so why not purchase a reminder of the big day for them? Engraved items (photo frames, tankards, champagne flutes and alike) always prove popular - in fact anything that will remind them of the big day every time they catch a glimpse.


Weddingsday Gift Vouchers: Always a popular choice, but if you're considering heading down this route, check out if they have a favourite store that they are trying to co-ordinate all vouchers for - 500 worth of gift vouchers for a single shop is often far more useful than fifty 10 gift vouchers for different outlets!



When it comes down to choosing wedding gift ideas, making the ultimate decision can be tricky, so keep the couple at the forefront of your thoughts when making the decision. Don't be afraid to ask their parents or even give the couple themeselves a call - it's always best to get them a gift they really want rather than something that'll end up on eBay!
