Gifts To Send With Your Wedding Invites
Most probably you will get married only once, and it will be one of the most special events of your life. This event starts way before the actual wedding day. From the day you start sending out invites, the wedding has begun!
Add radiance to your wedding invitations with these gift ideas and warm up your guests to the awesomeness that is set to follow.
The magic of aromas: The fragrance of scented candles, incense sticks or some potpourri will light up the invitee’s face and also their surroundings. These make up for some of the best pocket-friendly gift ideas.
Kuch meetha (aur modern) ho jaye: If you are looking for a modern and delicious wedding invitation gift idea, those colourful, little macaroons are the way to go. This French delicacy is currently trending in India and it deserves the attention it’s getting. A comparatively cheaper yet equally modern and lip-smacking alternative to macaroons is cupcakes. Both of these are a visual and taste delight.
Who doesn’t like chocolate!: They say, “Eating chocolate makes you happy.” So trust this gift idea to put your guests in the right mood for the wedding. Chocolates and cookies also have a longer shelf life than macaroons and cupcakes. Hence a better option if you are sending the wedding invitations to distant places.
The Green gift: If your wedding invitations are accompanied by a potted plant or a bag of seeds, it makes a beautiful statement that “Nature smiles on us if we take good care of it.” A cute little plant adds a sense of life and you will be remembered for a long time if you are up for such eco-friendly and thoughtful gift ideas.
Spice it up: Add that traditional Indian touch to your wedding invitations with spices. Tiny jute bags of cinnamon, bay leaves, cloves, coriander, cumin, garlic powder, nutmeg, chilli powder, etc. are a great way to make your invite ‘masaaledaar’.
Leave a mark: You can give out customised coasters or trays with your names and the wedding date inscribed on them. So your guests will remember you when they are sipping tea, even months after the wedding. Though let some beautiful design be prominent and keep the details minimal so it doesn’t look like you’re trying too hard.
Charismatic cubes: Send your wedding invitations in designer boxes like the ones with floral designs and shiny golden foiling. They look regal and can be utilised to keep things like jewellery or dry fruits.
Ultimate bathing experience: If your wedding invitation gifts include things like bath salts and handmade soaps, it subtly shows that you understand the finer things in life. Add some nice shampoo and perfume to gift the ultimate bathing experience.
Mix it up: If you are too confused to pick one gift idea, simply mix things up and make a hamper filled with options. You can put yummy stuff like dried paan, aam papad, chutneys, toffees, dry fruits, tea/coffee, etc. Throw in a bottle of shampoo/soap if you like. Everyone will like something or the other and you won’t have to stress about picking one perfect gift.
If you want to keep things simple, send a box of sweets with your wedding invitations. Depending on your budget and style, pick a gift that will be appreciated for its utility and beauty.
