We accept that cutlery and cushions make for great wedding gifts. Unfortunately, a majority of guests think the same. That means that most newlywed end up with a mountain load of beautifully packaged presents, but they all contain the same things. If you don’t want to see a pudding set you gave a couple make its way back to you as a Diwali present from another aunty, we suggest you check out these gift ideas. We’re certain they are so nice, no one will want to pass them on. Psst… did we tell you that they all look ‘valuable’ but are actually under Rs 5,000?
A Movie Card
What a cute and unexpected gift this would be! You can write a lovely little note wishing them a year’s worth of great movie dates when you present them with a Book My Show movie gift card. You just have to load it with any amount of your choice which will give them access to innumerable movies in a theatre near them.
A Pretty Wine Rack
This can be a great wedding gift especially if your friends enjoy wines and like to live in style. The wooden rack is foldable, easy to assemble and can hold up to three wine bottles together.
A Storage Box
We know this might come as a surprise, but believe us when we say this - most newlyweds are usually looking for an item that can store all the little bits and bobs together. This vintage finish green and white box would serve the purpose just right. It not only looks beautiful, but is really roomy too.
A Compact Barbecue Grill
A couple who cooks together, stays together! This one from Prestige is easy to assemble and even comes with foldable handles. It is quite compact too and can be carried on a mini outdoor picnic for two.
Everybody loves a good breakfast (in bed) with their partner. But don’t worry, things won’t get messy; the table is foldable and comes fully assembled. The contrast digital prints against the dark wood material makes it look pretty even when it’s just sitting in the corner.
A Spa Voucher
This gift has perfect timing. Any newly wed would love some pampering and relaxation after a hectic wedding. Plus if they live with family, it means they get some alone time! This couple spa voucher is valid for upto 90 days and can be availed in Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore.
A Digital Photo Frame
This digital photo frame is a mini organizer, radio, clock and compact social media browser all in one. It can be connected through wifi and can help you create a collage of your favourite pictures straight from your PC. Now how cool is that?
A Polaroid Camera
Polaroid pictures are so romantic to begin with! Even in this age of snapchat and instagram. We love that this travel-friendly compact camera comes with a selfie mirror and a close-up lens that delivers high quality pictures instantly.
