Updated on December 27, 2013

In most cases, you’ll only be wed once in a lifetime. This is why majority of couples are willing to invest a lot of time, effort, and money just to make sure their celebration of love and commitment will turn out successful and memorable.

Have you been invited to a wedding? Although bringing with you a gift is not required, many consider it as an obligation especially if any of the couple involved is a close friend or family. And it’s normal to be confused as to which one to choose among the hundreds of wedding gift ideas available. To slim down the options for you and make the process less time-consuming, here is a list of the Top 10 Best Wedding Gifts. Choose any of these and you’ll definitely make the newly-wed feel special and loved.

This gift is a perfect choice if you are aware that the bride loves to spend a few hours each day to knit or sew. Such activity is a known stress-reliever and its magic will surely be a great help as she faces the challenges of a married life. If she’s not a fan of this hobby, do a little research and think of something else that might interest her. A gift reflects how much you know a person so coming up with a perfect one will only require reminiscing the times you spent together and picking out clues that can lead you to anything that can truly make her happy.

The groom will surely be happy to have a new set of carpentry or electricity-repair tools which he can use for future DIY household projects. This gift idea won’t involve a lot of investment and is very meaningful so it’s absolutely worth considering. A sturdy toolbox is a great option as well if you happen to notice that the groom already has a bunch of tools but lacks well-suited storage. You can also include a home repair guide to complete the gift. It will definitely come in handy in the near future and the groom will remember your thoughtfulness and his wonderful wedding every time he uses it.

Marriage is never easy and the fact that thousands of married couples file for divorce every year is a concrete proof. Since the newly-weds are dear to you, why not help them surpass the challenges of a married life by giving them a guide? Even though books about marriage can be easily found, there are hundreds of them to choose from making it a bit challenging to find one that best suits the couple. To make it easier, look for a book that aims to develop both a couple’s relationship and spiritual life. We should never forget that just like in everything we do, He above all is the perfect guide towards a happy and fulfilling marriage.

Their wedding is one of the few events in a couple’s life that is truly worth remembering. Hundreds of photos will be taken during that day so a photo album as a gift is an excellent idea. However, as much as possible, don’t simply settle with a basic wedding-inspired album from a store. To make the gift extra special, make your own and personalize its design to make it jive with the couple’s taste. A hip personalized photo album is not only effective in impressing newly-weds but is also affordable making it a great pick for budget-conscious guests.

Most brides nowadays don’t have any idea or are still learning how to cook. This is the main reason why tea sets, kitchen utensils, and various cooking paraphernalia are common wedding gifts. They might be overused but that doesn’t mean they are less useful. These gifts are best particularly for couples who are bound to start a new and independent life after their marriage. Your gift can serve as an inspiration and a constant reminder that they have your full support as they venture onwards to a new chapter of their lives.

Shirts and accessories marketed for couples are teeming in the market today. These items are not just cute but also meaningful as they can serve as a couple’s reminder to act and think as one after marriage. Couple shirts are reasonably priced and are easy to find so they are your best choice if you are running out of time and is budget-conscious. Couple accessories such as bracelets, rings, necklaces, and earrings are harder to find but they’re really appealing so all the effort and time you’ll invest to find one that fits the couple perfectly are surely meaningful.

A home won’t be complete without chairs, tables, cabinets, and other home furniture. Though they might be hard to transport, furniture are quite famous as wedding gifts. They are often opened on the spot due to their noticeable size so you can actually experience how the couple react to the gift you prepared. Furniture are a bit expensive so you must only consider this option if you have a fairly huge budget. Nonetheless, how much you spend in the process doesn’t really matter if you truly love the couple and want the day of their wedding to be extra special.

The couple is expected to live on their own after a wedding so it’s not a big surprise why home appliance are common wedding gifts. This is one of the safest options you have especially if you don’t know the couple personally. If you have a tight budget, an electric rice cooker or iron would do. On the other hand, a television set, home theater, and washing machine, are great options for those who want to go grandiose.

We live in a world where technology influences every aspect of our society. This is why if you don’t want to go wrong, choose any of the latest gadgets as a wedding gift. It can be the latest iPhone model, digital camera, or any other famous gadgets in the market today. Since there is a wide array of options, decide which one to pick by knowing what the couple needs. Just be sure to hide your intentions while asking them about what gadgets they don’t have so you won’t end up spoiling the surprise.

Wedding preparations are often tiresome and time-consuming. And it will be concluded by a day filled with stress and pressure since so many things should be considered to be certain that the event will go smoothly. This is why majority of couples spend the next week or month relaxing and enjoying each other’s company. Why not treat them with an all-expense-paid trip to an awesome resort, a remote island, or any place that can provide them with enormous time to unwind? This might involve a considerable amount of investment both for plane tickets and hotel reservations but it’s definitely worthwhile after seeing the couple’s reaction after opening your gift.
