When going to a wedding, it’s important to give the bride and groom a fun and enjoyable gift. If you give a boring and predictable one, you won’t stand out. So, when heading to a wedding, avoid these three awful gifts.
- Any gag gift
There is a time and place for gag gifts, and a wedding isn't one of them. Mischievous people often give edible panties or an inappropriate magazine. If you want, you can give your buddy this gift at a bachelor or bachelorette party. Remember, while at a large ceremony, you will meet the bride and groom’s family and friends, and you don’t want to cause a scene.
While it’s easy to find artwork you will enjoy for years to come, it’s not always beneficial to give this to a newlywed couple. When you look at a painting or piece of art, you may like it. On the other hand, your friends may have different tastes and will not appreciate the same style you enjoy.
- Monogrammed items
While an engraved item is a nice gesture, it’s not practical. Not only will it cost you more money, but the couple can’t return the gift if they don’t want to use it. Instead, when giving a gift, concentrate on finding something at the intersection of personal and practical.
