Marriage marks an important phase in the lives of a couple and is special for those who attend it as well. As a guest, you want to make the occasion extra memorable by gifting the bride and groom something as a token of good luck for a wonderful married life ahead. But finding the gift that is cherished by the couple but does not burn a hole in your pocket is not as easy as it sounds. However, you need not worry. Nothing is impossible if you have a little help. Here’s our list of some incredible budget-friendly gifting ideas that will surely make the newlyweds happy.
Keep it simple
Those who said that good things come in small packages were right. This petite pendant in 14KT gold with a lustrous freshwater pearl as the centrepiece proves that when it comes to jewellery, less is more. Delicate yet stylish, it is an ideal choice for a bride to wear at semi-formal occasions. What’s more, she can also wear it to work.
Drop dead gorgeous
A bride has to attend several functions even after the wedding and has to look gorgeous every time. With this stunning pair of 22 KT drop earrings from Tanishq, perfecting the look of a ravishing bride is not very hard to achieve. It has a paisley-shaped motif accentuated by intertwining curves and base studs, giving it a traditional touch that would look good with ethnic & semi-ethnic dresses.
Stylish in studs
Won’t it be a shame if a pretty bride sports the same earrings every day? She should have different types of earrings to complement her trousseau. This pair of beautiful 22KT gold studs from Tanishq, in particular, is a must-have in every bride’s jewellery box. Oval in shape with a unique vertical design at the centre with Rawa ball detailing flanked by a twisted wire-like motif, this pair has a traditional yet trendy design, perfect for a modern bride.
Scent of a woman
Author C. JoyBell C once said that you are never fully dressed without perfume. This holds particularly true for a bride. Make every moment of her new life fragrant and memorable by presenting her this lovely floral perfume from Titan. Composed by expert perfumers with crisp notes of jasmine, lemon, violet, and freesia, it is a welcome addition to any bride’s dressing table.
Something to watch out for
This one is for the bridegroom. Smart & stylish, this automatic watch from Kenneth Cole with a grey dial and silver-toned metal straps is designed to make a lasting impression. The best part is that it will look good with both casual and formal attire.
This chic set of a Mother of Pearl analog watch with bracelets and bangles is perfect for jazzing up the look of any bride. The rose gold-tone timepiece when paired with the similarly hued bracelets and bangles accented with crystals and pearl will give a welcome twist to the conventional style of the bride and add an oomph factor to her outfit.
Last but not least, if you think that these ideas are too conventional for your taste, then why not try something offbeat? You can give the couple a gourmet basket complete with wine and chocolates to add an extra touch of romance. Newlyweds also love to receive gift vouchers of banks or E-com sites and personalized keepsakes and merchandise. But if you want to surprise them even further, how about a long-term, all-expenses paid domestic help? Think about it!
The value of a gift does not lie in its price but the thought that goes behind it. This wedding season, make your dear ones’ ‘big day’ super special by giving them something they will always remember.
