Tips for Brides and Guests
Finding that perfect wedding gift for the happy couple is sometimes hit or miss. And with destination weddings getting more popular every year, you might be wondering whether you should splurge on a gift at all. From the bride’s perspective, choosing wedding favors for the guests or the wedding party can be equally as daunting. No matter how much you’re pulling from savings to make this trip happen, wedding experts say you should still make an effort on gifts and favors.
Whether you’re a party goer or a party thrower, check out these simple ideas for destination wedding gifts so you don’t arrive empty-handed.
Usually destination weddings are intimate affairs, so you know you’ve been invited for a reason. What better way to say thank you to the soon-to-be-married couple than by splurging on a thoughtful “experience” gift? These types of gifts are a great way for newly married couples to bond together.
Book a romantic cooking class for them in the area. Help them relax before the big day with a massage or facial at a spa. This is a smart way to keep to your budget while providing an exceptional gift for the couple.
Additionally, anyone in the wedding party can show their appreciation for the couple and their families by splitting the cost and responsibility of a special bridal gift. Wow the couple with Home Euphoria’s elegant Magnum Wine Decanter, a hand-blown crystal carafe that holds and aerates up to two bottles of the couple’s favorite wine. Another wedding favorite, the Natural Bamboo Cheeseboard is perfect for display during bridal showers and rehearsal dinners.
If you’re juggling destination wedding travel plans with a tight budget, crafting is a great, cheap alternative to wedding favors or gifts. Try your hand at homemade candles with scents matching the wedding destination:
- Coconut and vanilla for a beachy theme
- Sandalwood and pine for a mountain getaway
- Patchouli and bergamot for vineyard vibes
Make sure to include the date of the event and the couple’s name for an extra thoughtful gesture. This also works well for table setting favors from the married couple.
Make It Personal
Personalized gifts are always a great way to show appreciation to those who are taking part in your big day. Surprise your bridal party with Home Euphoria’s Witty Wine Glasses. These stemless wine glasses can be ideal for guests you know best. Choose from several eclectic options like “Drinking Solution” and a perfectly relatable wine “Checklist.”
Destination wedding gift ideas don’t need to be stressful. In fact, your presence at the event means everything to those hosting. Simply bring yourself and a small, thoughtful gift and you’ll be all set to help celebrate the union of two amazing people in your life. Now it’s time to say, “Cheers!” to the happy couple!
