Since many couples skip honeymoons with their second spouse, surprise this pair with a weekend at a nearby resort or bed and breakfast. Day spas are also an excellent way for the couple to spend a few hours relaxing together after the hectic months of wedding planning.
A Charitable Gift
For the couple who really
has everything, the best gift is one that lets them do the giving. Make a donation to their favorite cause in their name, or give a gift certificate to Global Giving (GlobalGiving.com
) and let them pick the charity. If you'd like something more specific, try a site like Changing the Present (ChangingthePresent.org
), where you can choose to give clean well water to a community in a developing country, sponsor half an hour of breast cancer research, and hundreds of other small projects in honor of the couple.
If the couple will be living together for the first time after the wedding, get them something that celebrates their new home. Sure, they've got basic dishware and furniture, but do they have a hammock built for two? Or, if they're renovating to accommodate their new life together, try a gift certificate to a home supply store.
Honor the bride and groom's new life together with a one-of-a-kind customized gift. Whether it's something useful (new address labels or a doormat with both their names) or just for fun (a case of Jones Soda with their photos or a customized game of Monopoly), the couple will love the thoughtful celebration of their new partnership.
Give the bride and groom something they can enjoy together for an entire year with some sort of monthly club. Who wouldn't
love a new type of chocolate, wine, or fruit delivered to their door every four weeks? If the couple isn't the foodie type, consider a fresh flower club. Or, for a pair that loves to read, invest in subscriptions to a few of their favorite magazines.
