Employees in the workplace may be different, but there are always those with whom wonderful relationships and even strong friendships develop. In the case of holidays, colleagues give each other pleasant trifles and congratulations. When some significant event happens, for example, a wedding, you need to know what is better to give a colleague from the team on this special day.
Choosing the right gift for newlyweds
If you need to give a wedding gift to a colleague from the whole team, then you should look for something special that could show the attitude towards the young couple, the love of colleagues and friends. There may be many options, but it is important to know what to stop at. If colleagues are well aware of the life of the bride or groom, then choosing the right gift will not be difficult. Otherwise, you need to look for something universal. The most suitable option would be household appliances, which are ideal as a present for an employee from the team. The best gift to give:
- electric kettle
Many people prefer to start their morning with a cup of coffee. The coffee machine will complete the list of possible wedding surprises.
All these devices will be useful to newlyweds who are just starting their life together, and therefore the lack of equipment will become very noticeable. In the event that colleagues work side by side with the bride and groom and know them well, you can give more valuable equipment that will be useful to a young family, these are:
- a vacuum cleaner;
- food processor;
- camera and video camera.
These are just the main options that can serve as a wonderful gift for newlyweds and make their living together more enjoyable. In the event that there is no desire to donate equipment, or everything has long been bought from the future family, you can go the other way and please on your wedding day with such a gift as:
- tea or coffee service;
- crystal goblets;
- vases from different materials for flowers and decor;
- ceramic or porcelain figurines;
Employees at work will not be mistaken if they give young people a sconce or an original table lamp as a gift at the holiday.
A wedding gift should bring some benefit, and therefore its choice must be approached responsibly, knowing exactly what the bride and groom have and what they need. Let such questions reveal the secret of the surprise, but the received present will definitely be to your taste and will be used for its intended purpose. In this case, gifts such as:
- furniture, it can be a chest for things that is placed in any of the rooms;
- bedside cabinet or cabinets for the bride and groom;
- a chest of drawers for the couple’s common things;
- ottoman for rest or temporary accommodation, if the future family is just moving to a new place;
- a kitchen set of a table and stools, which is important for newlyweds starting a life together in a new apartment.
To make the house always warm and cozy, you can please a young couple with the things you need in everyday life, these are:
- synthetic winterizer blanket with a beautiful pattern;
- a warm blanket on a sofa or bed;
- beautiful tablecloth for the dining table;
- carpet for the room, if necessary.
The choice of any of the gifts must be accurate so that the newlyweds do not have several of the same gifts after the wedding. Colleagues can make an equally important and necessary contribution to the happy life of a young family by choosing the right presents for this.
What to give the groom and what to the bride?
When you need to come up with some kind of gift for a colleague on the wedding day, it is worth remembering the gender difference, because gifts for a woman and a man will be radically different. If we are talking about a girl with whom the team is on good terms, then a great gift would be:
- a set of bath towels and a bathrobe;
- bedding set with a suitable pattern and color scheme;
if you want to make a special present, you can choose a set for a romantic evening of beautiful glasses and an ice bucket, which makes the taste of champagne even more pleasant.
If you want to please a couple, you can buy two beautiful bathrobes and embroider the initials or names of the future couple on them. If there is not enough money for such a present, you can replace it with personalized T‑shirts with the inscriptions: “Her husband”, “His wife” or any other. If a gift is selected for a guy who has been working in a team for quite a long time, then you should thoroughly approach the selection, because men respect worthwhile and necessary things that can be useful and useful. In this case, you can choose this option:
- a family book in which some information about the groom, his parents, sisters and brothers and about everyone known by colleagues will be written, and the rest of the pages will be filled in by the married couple, after which the book will be passed on from generation to generation;
- if the groom loves outdoor recreation, barbecue and outdoor dishes, then a barbecue set, a grill pan and everything that is useful for such a family vacation would be a great option;
- if a man has any hobby, colleagues can support him and please him with an appropriate gift, the main thing is that the future wife shares this hobby.
If colleagues want to please the newlyweds with a big and memorable gift, then the best option would be a trip to Europe or a tour to the couple’s favorite city and stay there for a while as a honeymoon. If there are not so many employees who wish to congratulate a colleague on their wedding day, then organizing a chic gift will not always be possible. A symbolic present that can be arranged in this case is a romantic photo session of two people in love, which is paid for by the team.
Modest, but also memorable will be cups with photos of the bride and groom in halves of hearts, which together make up a big heart, which is a symbol of their strong love. If each of the employees wants to present their personal present for a colleague’s wedding, then you can order the printing of fridge magnets, where everyone will select their photo, which will mean something important for the colleague who will have a wedding.
Gift for the head
A special case will be the option when the wedding is planned not with a colleague, but with the management. In this case, the gift to the manager should be chosen much more carefully so as not to anger him and not lose his job. Of course, not all bosses are evil and demanding, but it so happened that the team will definitely not joke with them, especially in the case of a wedding present. So, the boss can present:
- a commemorative dish made of metal or ceramics, where the company logo will be engraved;
- a painting lover will like a worthwhile picture, it is desirable that one of the more or less well-known artists painted it, even the way of local ones;
- a leader who loves punctuality and does everything on time can be presented with a beautiful and rather expensive watch;
- a lover of antiques will like an old table or wall clock, it is desirable that they have some kind of original mechanism or design;
- for a boss who often contacts high-ranking officials and signs various agreements with them, it is worth presenting an expensive pen or a whole desk set with two pens.
All of the above options apply to the case when the leader is far enough away from the team and has little contact with him. As a result of this situation, all wedding gifts will be of an exclusively working nature.
If the relationship between management and subordinates is different, then gifts can be completely different. For a boss who spends a lot of time with employees, knows a lot about them, just like they do about their boss, you can give a wedding gift:
- a family photo album, in which there will already be several photos received either from the boss or from his chosen one;
- decorative pillows with photos or inscriptions, it can be a photo of the bride and groom or their names, as well as phrases about love and fidelity;
- to wish the newlyweds prosperity and material well-being, you can give a money tree.
To please the manager and his soulmate on the wedding day, you can shoot a video with congratulations from each employee of the organization. A much more interesting option would be to read a specially written poem or even perform a song prepared for this occasion. Such work will not go unnoticed and will be in the memory of a young family for many years.
What should not be presented?
There are options for gifts that they try to refuse, when it comes to weddings, these include:
All these things are considered harbingers of quarrels and discord in the family, which means that they have no place at the celebration of the combination of the souls of two lovers. In the event that the future family is already expecting replenishment, you should not purchase things or other items for the baby. Many parents do not make such purchases before the birth of the child, considering it a bad omen, because such a wedding present will only upset them. Those who do not believe in omens may simply not approve of the chosen color, design, material, which means that the money for the gift was wasted.
Those colleagues who wish to please future parents on their wedding day can present money that the newlyweds will dispose of at their discretion. You should not take on the organization of an event for a colleague without first informing him. Newlyweds often plan each part of their holiday themselves, and therefore interference from the outside can be perceived negatively, even if it is done from the heart. It is also undesirable to choose such gifts that will be perceived by the newlyweds ambiguously:
- garments, such as a lace sleeping set or skimpy pajamas;
- accessories for mating games, if there is no exact certainty that they will be needed and perceived correctly;
- household items (pans, pots, bowls) that set you up for a boring life devoid of joy.
The choice of gift should be planned and selected only with the consent of the colleague. It is not necessary to disclose the exact version of the present, you can only clarify whether the bride or groom will be against any specific options, and choose the best one.
Such an unusual gift will be remembered by the hero of the occasion for many years. How to do it, see the video below.
