As wedding season rolls around, you may find yourself scrambling for an affordable wedding gift. I have been to several weddings in my life, and I always make sure to bring some type of gift, no matter where I am money wise. There are plenty of thoughtful gifts that won’t break the bank. We wanted to put a list together of some ideas for you to find the perfect gift for the new Mr. and Mrs. that you can afford, and they will love! Below you will find some ideas on affordable wedding gifts.
Affordable Wedding Gift Ideas
Here are some great affordable wedding gift ideas the bride and groom will love!
A handcrafted gift that is personal and useful.
If you have a special talent or skill, you already have all of the tools you need to create a special gift for the happy couple. Commercial artists can design and print customized stationary. A knitter can create a warm throw for the couple to snuggle under. Just make sure that your creation is comparable to the items you’d buy in a boutique store, not a local street fair.
Several Small Items
Although you can’t afford to get the bride and groom that new blender they registered for, you probably don’t want to get them a single spatula either. Instead try grouping five or six small items together to create one thoughtful, but affordable, gift. You can even tie a ribbon around the times to make them more festive.
A Framed Photo
If you’ve known the soon-to-be newlyweds for any amount of time, there’s a good chance that you have a picture, or two, of them that they don’t have. Frame and mat this picture for a sentimental gift.
A Gift That Ages Well
Newly married couples plan to be together for the rest of their lives. You can honor that plan by giving a gift that will be there to celebrate with them. Ask an expert at your local wine shop to make a suggestion for a bottle of wine that will age well.
A Family Recipe
Choose a recipe that has been handed down in your family for many years. Write or print the recipe onto a pretty note card. Including any non-perishable ingredients and special tools, such as a pastry blender or a garlic press, will make this gift especially memorable.
When choosing a wedding gift, you should remember that the bride and groom won’t care what you spent on their gift. After the wedding is over, all the happy couple will remember is that you took the time to not only attend their wedding but also to select a meaningful gift for them.
