Thoughtful wedding gifts for all budgets, from $ 25 to $ 500 (and more)
If you’ve started getting a constant stream of wedding invitations in your mailbox, you’re not alone. After a pandemic-induced lull on the matrimonial dance floor, a growing number of couples are finally heading to the altar. People in the business call this the “marriage boom”. But what is an out-of-practice wedding guest buying for the bride and groom in these unprecedented times? The Happy Couples Registry is often a good place to start: many engaged people make wish lists online at sites like The Knot.
But what if your favorite bride and groom don’t have a registry or haven’t created one yet? We’re here to help, no matter how much money you want to spend. Fortunately, many traditional wedding gifts are still very much present. Housewares and kitchen upgrades are a perennial favorite. The same goes for articles related to honeymoon and travel.
We’ve put together a list of wedding gift ideas to suit every budget (and we mean all budget), so you can spend less time shopping and more time basking in the glow of everything you love.
Any budget: Delta Airlines or Southwest Airlines travel gift card
If the couple you are looking for have been together for a while, they may not need brand new kitchen appliance. They would probably need a good vacation. This is where you come in. At Giftcards.com, you can purchase Delta Airlines Gift Cards and Southwest Airlines Gift Cards up to a value of $ 275. And with this thoughtful gift, your newlyweds can fund the honeymoon of their dreams. Don’t be surprised when they bring you a souvenir.
