Putting Together Wedding Gift Baskets

Weddings are always such a joyous occasion, (unless the bride or groom doesn’t show up!) Otherwise its nuptials, laughter, pictures, food, music, dancing and of course, cake. What’s not to love about that? Sometimes coming up with the right gift for the bride and groom can be tricky, but have you ever thought about putting together wedding gift baskets?

Champagne is definitely classy and tasty. Typically it’s used to celebrate a happy occasion, so using it in your wedding gift basket would be a wonderful idea. Champagne can be found at your local supermarket at very reasonable prices or if you’d like, you can go all out and purchase a very expensive vintage French champagne. If you want to make it extra special, have the label on the bottle read the bride and groom’s name with their wedding date. It’s a gift that anyone would love.

A picture is worth a thousand words. Why not buy the newlyweds a timeless and elegant picture frame? In addition, maybe you could get them a wedding picture book. There are several stores that carry products like this that will also offer engraving. A picture frame or picture book is a gift that will last forever and hold the memories of a couple’s very special day. Either would be a great addition to any wedding gift basket.

Adding a candle or two to your beautiful, inventive gift basket would be another perfect idea. Scents have been proven to affect people’s moods so why not pick out a few scents that make you think of happiness, love and affection? I can’t even begin to imagine how many different scents exist, so I’m sure you would have no problem at all choosing a few that your special friends would love. The smell of apple cider, cherry lemonade or coconut bay would be a great addition to any new home.

If you want to get really creative, and you have the means to do so, try getting the special couple a pair of tickets to see their favorite music artist in concert or to the sporting event of the season. It’s sure to be a gift they would love, enjoy and would never forget. If that’s not within your budget, don’t worry. You can be really resourceful and make your own “tickets” redeemable for any time they need a babysitter, a shoulder to cry on, or a home away from home. It’s the kind of gift that anyone could use and love, newlywed or not.

How about a funny wedding gift basket? A pair of rubber gloves, some scouring pads and some washing up detergent, on top of some disposable diapers!

When putting together wedding gift baskets, you really can’t go wrong. Whether you only put in a card and a candy bar or a bounty of exciting, useful items, the newlyweds will be sure to love it. Add a lot of love and happy wishes along with a pretty bow on top, and you will have put together a wedding gift basket that anyone would enjoy.
