There are very few times in your life when you get given loads of lovely presents. Your Wedding is one of them! Don’t feel embarrassed by this but rather enjoy being spoilt by those that wish to treat you.
People will buy you presents, whether you ask for them or not, so better that it be something to your taste and something you have chosen! 80% of people will buy a present from gift list if directed to one.
Not everyone has the same budget so remember to cater for all price brackets. It’s worth thinking about both ends of the expenditure spectrum and making sure your list is kept stocked up with your favorite things. We would recommend having gifts starting at £15 up to over £100.
Ensure there is plenty of variety — this allows your guests to feel they are selecting a gift that really suits them and that is therefore more personal.
People tend to prefer buying tangible presents; something for longevity. Don’t have too many ‘contributions to…’.
Don’t forget to include fun items that you may not consider buying for yourself. Lasting gifts become memories of your day — think of things that will add pleasure to your marital home for years to come.
