Weddiquette Tip #12: Don’t Skip The Gift. Now don’t get me wrong, the bride and groom have invited you because they want you to be a part of their special day, not because they want a blender from you. But this is an occasion worth celebrating, and you should be happy to make starting their new lives together a little easier!
It doesn’t have to be anything huge or expensive either! Fill a laundry basket with household necessities like dish soap, towels and laundry detergent. It’s thoughtful, cute and very helpful. If you’re an artist, make them a personal piece for their new home. If you’re good at cooking, compile a recipe book of favorite recipes from other couples you both know. Get creative with your giving, but do make sure that you are giving.
What if I am not able to attend? Do I still need to send a gift? Although it is not required for you to send a gift, it is always appreciated.
