What to give a friend for a wedding?


  1. Gift selec­tion rules
  2. Gift options

A wed­ding is a sig­nif­i­cant event not only for the bride, but also for her friends. They spend a lot of time help­ing to orga­nize such a long-await­ed event and are direct­ly involved in the cer­e­mo­ny. At the same time, brides­maids always want to stand out from the back­ground of oth­er guests and give some orig­i­nal gift to the hero of the hol­i­day. Here, the usu­al duty present will not work and you will have to come up with some­thing real­ly amaz­ing.

Gift selection rules

Before you start choos­ing a gift for a friend’s wed­ding, it should be clear­ly under­stood that there are cer­tain rules for this process.

  • Most like­ly, the bride has a cer­tain taste. You do not need to choose the gift that you would like to receive for your wed­ding. That is why it is bet­ter to check with oth­er friends or rel­a­tives what the hero of the occa­sion would like to receive for the cel­e­bra­tion.
  • Nobody for­bids dis­cussing the future gift with the bride her­self, because today prac­ti­cal gifts are most val­ued. It is bet­ter to present as a present an item that will be rel­e­vant for the girl.
  • In West­ern coun­tries, there is a tra­di­tion accord­ing to which the new­ly­weds write on paper before the wed­ding what kind of gifts they would like to receive, after which the guests dis­trib­ute them among them­selves.
  • Before donat­ing, the item must be exam­ined for the pres­ence of price tags, oth­er­wise it may be embar­rass­ing for the giv­ing per­son.

The search for a gift should begin long before the wed­ding, so that you do not have to be con­tent with what can be found in two days.

Gift options

No mat­ter how trite it may sound, but the most prac­ti­cal and pop­u­lar gift today is an enve­lope with mon­ey. How­ev­er, the brides­maid should show her imag­i­na­tion and pick up some­thing more inter­est­ing and unique.

Concert attendance and memory photo session

Tick­ets for a con­cert of an adored per­former are an afford­able and at the same time a very wel­come gift. Every girl dreams of lis­ten­ing to her favorite songs live, so this day will def­i­nite­ly remain in the mem­o­ry of the bride. If the bud­get allows, then you can invite your favorite artists to a wed­ding cel­e­bra­tion, which will imme­di­ate­ly turn into an unfor­get­table show.

Anoth­er inter­est­ing gift can be a roman­tic pho­to shoot. Every girl dreams of get­ting inter­est­ing and unique pho­tos with her loved one.

You can arrange with a pro­fes­sion­al pho­tog­ra­ph­er. He will meet the cou­ple before the wed­ding and will work out all the ges­tures in advance, includ­ing the first dance. Thanks to this, the new­ly­weds in the frame will feel more calm and nat­ur­al. For an addi­tion­al fee, you can order pho­to books, which will con­tain the most roman­tic and suc­cess­ful pic­tures of the new­ly­weds. The bride will sure­ly appre­ci­ate such a gift from her friend, because such vivid mem­o­ries will not leave any­one indif­fer­ent.

Money tree and hot air balloon ride

One of the inter­est­ing and mem­o­rable gifts is the mon­ey tree. This tra­di­tion exists in most coun­tries of the world. Pre­sent­ing such a present, a per­son wish­es a young cou­ple pros­per­i­ty and pros­per­i­ty. The type of tree does not mat­ter — it can be liv­ing or arti­fi­cial. Some sim­ply tie bills around house­plants and present them to the future cou­ple.

If you want to pick up an inter­est­ing and styl­ish present for a friend for a wed­ding, then a walk in a hot air bal­loon is exact­ly what you need. Such an exquis­ite present will turn an ordi­nary cel­e­bra­tion into a real extrav­a­gan­za and will not leave any­one indif­fer­ent. A dis­tinc­tive fea­ture of such a flight is that it will give the new­ly­weds an inde­scrib­able feel­ing and charge the nec­es­sary lev­el of adren­a­line.

Very often, new­ly­weds choose to fly on such a bal­loon with friends, which makes the adven­ture even more excit­ing.

Practical gifts

If it was decid­ed to give mon­ey to your friend, then it is bet­ter to arrange them and present them in an orig­i­nal way. Among the most inter­est­ing ideas, a num­ber of orig­i­nal and unfor­get­table options can be dis­tin­guished.

  • Pho­to album. The ide­al option is to pur­chase an album on a wed­ding theme in a small for­mat. Instead of pho­tographs, you should fill it with ban­knotes.
  • Pre­sen­ta­tion in the form of a pic­ture. It is quite sim­ple to do this: you need to care­ful­ly lay out the mon­ey under the glass in any order, and write their pur­pose under the bills. It will turn out not only orig­i­nal, but also very fun.

A gift sur­prise in the form of an ATM will also be appro­pri­ate. Mak­ing such an item is quite sim­ple, and you only need a card­board box for this. Of course, you must not for­get to arrange it prop­er­ly.

romantic gifts

You can hard­ly find a more roman­tic day than a wed­ding. There­fore, at such moments I want to give appro­pri­ate gifts. How­ev­er, in order for him to receive an hon­or­able place in the heart of the bride, the gift must be inter­est­ing and mem­o­rable. As such a pre­sen­ta­tion, you should choose some­thing orig­i­nal.

  • Wall clock in the form of hearts that are con­nect­ed togeth­er. Such a gift can bring joy and plea­sure to a friend and her life part­ner. Such a present not only looks attrac­tive, but can also become a sym­bol of love.
  • Pil­lows on which there will be images of the bride and groom. Today, in any city, you can find com­pa­nies that can put any pho­tos on objects in a mat­ter of hours. The laser print­ing tech­nique will allow you to get orig­i­nal pil­lows that will take pride of place in the inte­ri­or of the new­ly­weds’ bed­room.
  • Name robes — a vari­ant of an orig­i­nal, prac­ti­cal and inter­est­ing gift. Every time they wear such bathrobes, they will be able to remem­ber the most solemn moments of life.
  • Bed sheets. When pur­chas­ing such a gift, you do not need to skimp, but it is bet­ter to choose a real­ly wor­thy option. The most pop­u­lar and in demand today are options made from nat­ur­al silk and satin. If it is nec­es­sary for the present to become unique, you can put on it the ini­tials of the new­ly­weds, which will be embroi­dered with gold threads. Sim­i­lar embroi­dery can be ordered at any stu­dio.

Spectacular gifts

If you want to turn an ordi­nary wed­ding event into an inter­est­ing, orig­i­nal and unfor­get­table evening, you can pre­pare gifts with unique spe­cial effects.

  • Huge fire­works. The orga­ni­za­tion can be car­ried out inde­pen­dent­ly by pur­chas­ing goods in a spe­cial­ized store. How­ev­er, it is much bet­ter to entrust this to expe­ri­enced pro­fes­sion­als. Great expe­ri­ence allows them to turn ordi­nary fire­works into a whole per­for­mance that attracts the atten­tion of any per­son.
  • Crazy bach­e­lorette par­ty. It is this event that is con­sid­ered the begin­ning of a new stage in the life of a girl, so it should be tak­en with all respon­si­bil­i­ty. You should think over the pro­gram of the event in advance, pre­pare deli­cious snacks and devel­op enter­tain­ing sur­pris­es. It is not nec­es­sary to be lim­it­ed to strip­pers — you can orga­nize qui­et gath­er­ings with view­ing your favorite and fun­ny pho­tos. The main thing is not to over­do it, because at the wed­ding the bride should be fresh and well-rest­ed. Ideas for brides­maids on such days are the most unusu­al.
  • Spa Cer­tifi­cates. It is unlike­ly that in the mod­ern world there is at least one girl who does not like to spend time in beau­ty and body care salons, espe­cial­ly before the most impor­tant day in her life. You can also give a cer­tifi­cate for two, thanks to which a friend can relax and improve her appear­ance with her loved one.

Petals, coins, confetti: what are newlyweds showered with today

No one knows a girl bet­ter than her friend, so almost any­thing can be giv­en as a gift. These can be the most ordi­nary and prac­ti­cal things, with­out which the life of a mod­ern fam­i­ly is impos­si­ble: a steam iron, an iron­ing board, a microwave oven and oth­er inter­est­ing gift options. In addi­tion, no one for­bids giv­ing fun­ny and unusu­al gifts in the form of a col­lage with cre­ative pho­tos and even a pup­py. Of course, it is bet­ter to agree on the last gift in advance, because not every cou­ple is ready to keep a pet in their apart­ment.

Thus, the main thing when choos­ing a gift for a friend’s wed­ding is sin­cer­i­ty. It does­n’t mat­ter what you give. The main thing is how the present is pre­sent­ed. This must be done with love and respect, and then some­thing insignif­i­cant and inex­pen­sive will be remem­bered for a life­time.
