Some couples like to give out gift lists to make sure they can get what they want and at the same time, no gift will be wasted because it's not useful for them. But for some couples, this act may seem too demanding and they don't want guests to feel pressured about what to get them so they will leave it for the guests to decide.
If you have to decide what to get your newly wedded friends. Here we have the best 30 ideas for you and any one of them will make your friends happy!
Best Marriage Gifts Ideas For Couple
(1) A cake dome
For every couple that's about to start their new life together by moving in, you need to get them some kitchen equipment. Something even as little as a nice silverware set will be appreciated. The shopping you need to do to just move in with someone is insane and draining. A cake dome will be much appreciated!
(2) A vintage rug
A vintage rug on the floor just speaks class on its own. Perfect for couples that like vintage style and decorations. But be sure it fits the overall aesthetics of the family.
(3) A chandelier
If they are really close friends of yours or you just feel like giving them the best, a chandelier is your first choice. Imagine moving into a new house and you've been too busy to just get all the basic necessities around that you don't even have time to properly decorate the place, then your friend shows up with a chandelier to light up the house. Isn't that a sweet gesture?
(4) A pillow set or comforters with their photos on
Get them matching pillow set with their photos printed on just for fun! It's very practical because obviously we all need comforters to get us through the snowy nights. As newly weds, they probably would want to see their happy face everywhere anways. So you're just giving them what they want!
(5) A baking set
Also a very thoughtful gift because there're too many couples moving in after their weddings that got so busy and just forgot about so many things. I've heard about a couple forgetting to get a bed (yeh, literally), it happens. While getting them a huge bed may be too much in size, getting them a baking set is certainly cute! It's easy to forget but very useful!
(6) A suitcase set
Maybe they're packing for their honeymoon last minute and realized they would need more suitcases! Get them matching suitcase so they have match on their honeymoon!
Some paintings to put on the walls would make the new house less empty and more homey!
(8) Two flight tickets!
Probably the best gift for two adventrous souls, getting two tickets to any corner in the world! You can get deals with airlines to get two gift tickets when it's being redeemed with real tickets to any destinations, your account will be charged the amount, or you can set an amount to the cards in advance so you don't go bankrupt on this!
(9) A pet!
So many couples love starting their new chapter by raising a pet. The best you could do, is to rescue a dog or a cat and gift the couple with it. But make sure you know that they do want a pet to begin with, then you will show up with the best gift possible!
(10) A set of bathroom mirrors
A very grand and thoughtful gift for the newly weds. A set of massive bathroom mirrors, just feels good to look at.
