an awful wedding gift you should avoid

3 Awful Wedding Gifts to Avoid

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.

  1. 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.

  2. Artwork

    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.

  3. 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.
