Selecting unique wedding gifts and cards isn’t much of a challenge if you’re trying to please both the bride and groom. “Couple” gifts are usually the most common wedding gifts offered. You know…housewares for the kitchen…. a toaster, can opener, and steak knives. And, who spends the most time in the kitchen? Generally, it’s not the man of the house.
I suggest, if you really want a unique wedding gift, purchase something that will please the groom. I ask a few future grooms what they would like to receive as a wedding gift. Here are a few of their suggestions.
* Tools – You almost need a hammer right away to hang photos of your wedding on the wall. So, a few tools is a great idea. A hammer, a set of screwdrivers, and pliers placed in a simple tool box is a unique wedding gift and will be greatly appreciate by groom.
* Ex. Large Towels – Guys like towels that are large enough to dry off their larger physique. They want a towel they can comfortably wrap around their waist and tuck the corners in. This casual attire is the preferred dress for the shaving routine. This is a great time to personalized your wedding gift. A towel for her as well as for him… with their names embroidered on the bottom.
* A Bar B Q – Ah haa! They want to cook the burgers and steaks. If you are going to make this type of purchase, check to see if their apartment has a balcony or a place where the grill can be stored before you buy. If you can’t afford the grill… Bar B Q tools are a great alternative for a unique wedding gift.
* A Cooler – Yes, I can see where a cooler would be useful. Purchase one that has a smaller cooler inside (double the value.) The smaller cooler will come in handy when the groom attends football games. And, it can also be carried on a golf cart.
There you go… a few unusual wedding gifts suggestions… that will certainly please the groom.
Now… unique wedding cards? Well that’s a different story. I never seem to have a wedding card on hand. I have always wished I had one I could just print off on my computer. Well, here you go. I designed a few unique wedding cards for you to download and print. Just right for those times you forget to pick up a wedding card.
Here are two choices… a set with a colored back ground and a set with a white back ground. Wrap your gift and tape the card securely near the bow so it won’t fall off when the wedding gifts are loaded into the car.
