So, if you have found that you are faced with having to buy a wedding gift at extremely short notice, you should take a look at the guide to some great ideas.
Help Redecorate or Spruce Up their Bedroom or Another Room
Newlyweds often have spent a lot of money on the big day itself and their honeymoon. Because of this, they may not have the necessary funds to do important things like redecorate their bedroom or other parts of their home. A nice treat for the happy couple, especially if you know them would be to help pay for some work to be done in their home.
Put Some Money Towards Their Honeymoon
Again, if you know them well enough you may decide to put some money towards their honeymoon. If, however, things are all booked up and ready, you could make it extra special for them by investing in some special treats or them while they are at their chosen destination.
Treat the to a Fancy Meal
Give them another excuse to spend time in each other’s company by sending them off for a romantic meal. You could either pick somewhere you know they love or choose somewhere you know they have always wanted to try but have never had the chance.
They will appreciate the thought and will enjoy the extra bit of time they get to spend on their own after the big day. Often the bride and groom are bombarded in the first few days and weeks, apart from the honeymoon of course, with attention from family and friends. A romantic meal can be a welcome escape.
Book Them Some Treatments at the Local Spa
After the rush of excitement and the anxiety that comes with the big day, you could treat them to a day at the spa. Pre-arrange and book them in for time in the sauna, massages and lots of other pampering sessions.
Wedding Gift Baskets
When in doubt, appeal to their bellies or senses. If you’re really stuck for ideas and have limited time you could simply order them a lovely gift basket. There are lots of great gift baskets to choose from that will appeal to their specific tastes. If they both have a particularly sweet tooth, you could get them a gift tower full of different tasty treats, whereas if they prefer healthier eating you could get a pampering gift basket with lots of nice smellies or a fruit and nut gift.
