The wedding season is finally upon us. While we can’t wait to be a part of our friends’ and families’ big day, eat delicious food, have a dance battle on the sangeet night and flirt with the cute guests of the other side, deciding on the wedding gift puts the best of us in a spot. We spend hours discussing and debating what to give the newlyweds and eventually end up giving them cash, something that may be very helpful for them but is totally impersonal.
You also don’t want the newlyweds to be stuck with a gift that they’ll never use and will only end up passing it on to other people. A blender, a vase, a suit piece--no one really wants that. And you definitely don’t want to be the one gifting any of these. So ladies, if your bestie, school friend or colleague is getting married anytime soon, here are 15 wedding gifts that couples will actually use and love. Take our advice and get gift shopping!
If you don't know a couple too well, or simply cannot afford to buy an expensive present--worry not! A gift doesn't need to be expensive to be thoughtful. Here are some ideas for gifts that couples will LOVE without burning a hole in your pocket.
The first thing that all the guests notice at the couple's new home is going to be the quirky doormat at the entrance. Help them make a statement with this cute 'LOVE' doormat from POPxo.

Most newlyweds are super excited to be setting up their new home together, and gifting them this comfy-yet-chic faux fur bean bag will help them build a cosy corner in their abode. After all, who wouldn't want to sink into this furry goodness at the end of a long, tiring day?
We live in the age of social media, and everyone is constantly clicking away. But how many of these pictures actually make it to our walls? Most of them just remain forgotten on our phone galleries. So gift the newlyweds this instant camera, so that they can click away whenever they want, and get an actual physical picture in return, which they can hang up on their walls.
The reason why scented candles make for such a perfect wedding gift is that not only will they act as great decor items, they will also make the love birds' new nest smell like a dream! Plus, they can also use the candles for cosy date nights at home. Win-win!
If you're very close to the couple who's getting married and want to make them feel *extra special*, then go ahead and splurge on them! However, make sure you buy something thoughtful, otherwise, you'll be spending all that money only to have the gift passed on. You don't want that, do you? So scroll down for our suggestions for luxury gift ideas for that special couple in your life.

What if we told you that there was a way to make your favourite couple feel out of this world...we mean literally! You can name a star after them via Oye Happy, who act as a facilitator between you and YourStarForever, which is an accredited registrar of the Star Dedication Archives. All you need to do is share the name of the couple, select the zodiac, the date, and a star will be automatically picked for them.

The couple will be sending a lot of thank you notes for all the beautiful gifts they’ve received. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if they could do the same with personalised stationery with their names printed on it? We think they’d love that idea. That’s what makes this boxed stationery set such an apt gift. Writing those notes won’t seem like a task anymore.
If you’re going to be gifting the couple a photo frame, don’t let it be one of the off-the-shelf generic ones. Get something super personal and cool framed that they can actually use and hang in their room. How about their wedding date printed on a collage of their pictures?
The first instinct of most people is to give the newlyweds cash instead of gifts. The logic behind this is that with the cash, the couple can buy what they want instead of some generic thing you’ll gift them. But in reality, there is nothing more impersonal than cash and if the two people getting married are close to you, it only shows them that you did not care enough to put in the extra effort.
On the other hand, gifts that you’ve put some thought in to will always remind them of your attempt to make them happy to the best of your abilities. Every time they use it, they’ll think of you and your little contribution to making their life better. So take a little extra pain and find them a gift that’ll put a smile on their face. And if you’re still confused about what you can gift, just ask them. You’ll be surprised by how forthcoming people can be with their demands. Even if there isn’t the concept of wedding registry in India, they can still tell you what to get them. That’s about all it takes. So, happy shopping!
Wedding gifts can come in all sizes and shapes, while also carrying a definitive purpose to it. We understand that choosing the right gift can sometimes be a wearying task, so we have clubbed the best wedding gifts that you can choose from under different price bars.
Why give an ordinary, run of the mill gift when you can gift something personal. It’s highly uncommon that the newlywed couple will not recognize your efforts. We bet, their first instinct will be in awe of your gesture.
There is a wide variety of gifting options available in the market, yet you can’t be sure if that vase you picked will be the right choice. However, you can make it thoughtful by gifting a wellness box, a framed cock board, a herbal tea box or even a blingy cushion to adorn their bed.
You can gift your brother a gift card from BookMyShow. This will be the perfect wedding gift for a movie buff like him!
We hope you're going to think beyond the ordinary the next time you need that perfect wedding gift!
