At your best friend's wedding, the day is not only special for her but to you as well. It's a touching moment when you see your best friend getting married. Unlike any other occasion, weddings are a little burden for everyone's part since you worry about your make-up, the dress and even the gifts you will give.
Find the original single of the bride and groom's first wedding dance and this will serve as a special gift for both of them. You may include a plaque that holds your message and well wedding wishes for the bride and groom.
There are less than serious gifts around and you can give one especially if your friend has a good sense of humor. The bride and group will of course get those gifts they can use once they've settled down into their own home so why not give them something just sweet and fun instead. Give them a basket of sweets and just tell them that they can make use of this during their honeymoon!
Best friend gift ideas can be widely different for different people. Depending on your budget, you can try picking any of the various options available to you. The gift should be such that it goes on to become a precious possession of the couple, which would keep them reminded of their marriage, and especially of you.
Some of the most personalized best friend gift ideas that convey a lot about your thought and affectionate bond with the newly wed couple can be any the following:-
i) If you know the destination of the couple's, you can call up there to inquire about any special trips or treatments you could pre-purchase for your best friend and his/her partner. If possible, you could 'buy' them things like - a couple's massage, an exclusive champagne dinner on the beach, or a special trip arranged just for them. Ensure that you let their destination hotel know who the 'special' gift-giver is!
ii) You can also purchase some traveler's checks for couples going on a honeymoon. Since honeymoons can be expensive, a little 'extra' spending money for special things would be a wonderful gesture, which will be greatly appreciated. The couple can use the checks presented by you to buy for anything of their choice; and will simply love your thoughtfulness!
iii) Another one of excellent best friend gift ideas would be to make a gift of 'matching his and hers items' and presenting it to the couple. There are innumerable possibilities in this category, like - scarves, watches, jewelry, fragrances, his-and-hers cosmetics or toiletries, etc.
iv) Speaking specifically in terms of your bride or groom's friend, there can be some special gifts. For the groom you can buy things like - personalized sports equipment such as baseball bats, putters, baseballs, etc personalized leather wallets for travel bags. On the other hand, gifts for the bride can be - customized bracelets, engraved jewelry boxes, or charm bracelets.
Useful gifts can also come in handy and by giving them personalized foot warmers which they can wear together in cold seasons. Address why your gifts are far more special than the others by making funny notes or sharing an anecdote connecting the personalized gifts you chose! Gardening may be an activity they love doing and giving them a plant is just old fashion, so why not give them wood crates instead! You may add the names of the couple and date of their wedding to show how this gift can be everlasting.
Put your very special message in a package full of chocolates where the wrappers are personalized with their names on the bars.
Another ideal gift is a personal calendar so they can keep a list of things they may want to do for their first year of marriage! Complete with their wedding date, full name, and venue, add a special trivia where they can read each time they flip the pages of the calendar. Each month can bear their names spelled in different ways like on the snow or the clouds in the sky.
