It’s August, which means wedding season is in full swing in the United States, and with so many people who couldn’t get married last year because of the lockdown, we’re sure that this year you’ve been invited to at least one wedding. Whether the bride is your childhood best friend or you’ve known the groom since kindergarten, finding the right wedding gift can be quite challenging, especially if you are short of money but still want to get them something meaningful and personal. In order to help you with this difficult task, we’ve put up a list of 3 creative gift ideas for the newlyweds that are suitable for all types of budget:
A sky chart from their special day
For years, this present idea has been floating around the internet. A night sky chart is a very personal present because it can represent the stars and constellations on a significant day for the newlyweds, such as their wedding, engagement, or anniversary day. The chart comes in a variety of sizes and colors such as black, midnight blue, grey-blue, and aquamarine. This way, it could be the perfect piece of interior design for the newly married couple’s home. This present is also affordable, with the smallest chart costing around $60 and the biggest one selling for about $90. Such a thoughtful gift will undoubtedly be appreciated and will make their new life more special.
A wool blanket
If you want to get a wedding gift that will last for many years, a high-quality wool blanket is always a great idea for someone who has recently married and is looking to decorate their home. Such a present is very versatile, durable, and makes their house look more expensive and welcoming. It can be used as a throw on the couch in the living room or as a cozy blanket for night movies. The cost of such a blanket is around $100, however, the price may vary depending on the size and if the blanket is hand knitted. If you are looking for a gift that will surely be useful for the married couple, check out Keily’s for Irish blankets, made of 100% wool and knitted with traditional stitches and Celtic symbols.
A live wedding painting artist
Hiring a live painter for a wedding has become increasingly popular in recent years. This is a much better and more original gift idea than the traditional picture booth. The artist brings his own canvas, painting supplies, and easel and is usually standing in a corner and waiting for the perfect, special moment that should be pictured in the artwork. The size of the canvas and the color palette can also be discussed beforehand to make sure that the present will turn out just fine. Definitely the most costly gift idea out of all 3 of them, the artwork may range in price from $600 up to $3000 or even $6000. However, the painting is usually finished on the night of the wedding with no delays and is presented to the newlyweds, which makes it a perfect, one-of-a-kind, and very meaningful present, especially if it comes from close friends or family.
