Spring has sprung which can only mean one thing: Wedding Season. As the carefully curated invites come in thick and fast, you may find yourself asking what the perfect gift is to celebrate this monumental occasion? Never fear, we’ve made wedding gifting easy here at Boxed Temptations with a fuss free guide to please brides and grooms a plenty.
Wedding gifting has undergone a renovation of sorts in the last decade or so. With so many couples now living together before the big day, traditional gifts such as steak knives, toasters or crystal tumblers have slowly fallen off the wishlist.
Many couples are now requesting a donation in their wishing well. This always begs the question “how much is enough?”. If you decide to go down this route, anywhere from $100 to $300 per couple is considered customary.
If however, you’d like to surprise the couple with a gift that will leave a lasting impression, you may want to rethink the old ‘cash in the card’ scenario and embrace the gifting route.
As we mentioned, couples tying the knot nowadays have generally been defacto for some time. They don’t need sheets and doilies as were customary in the 50’s, 60’s and even the 90’s. These days, couples are searching for a little ‘luxe’ in their life.
As someone who *did* receive cash gifts on my big day, I can tell you the carefully selected gifts are much more sentimental to myself and my husband all these years later. While we did manage to put some money away for a rainy day, weddings should be a celebration of love rather than a cash grab. We’re totally on team ‘gifting’ here.
Firstly, you need to think about the couple to be wed. What do they like? What kind of lifestyle do they lead? Once you’ve got that down pat, customisation will take your gifting cred up a whole lotta notches.
Nothing says you care like taking the time to personalise a special gift for the couple. Our Slate Dandelion Platters are a perfect choice. We can engrave the couples name, wedding date, a quote or anything else you believe would make them smile. When thinking of longevity, these babies will be used again and again by the couple and you can bet they’ll think of you and their big day each time they bring this piece out. Winning!
We have a whole range of gorgeous items to create a memorable gift right here. You can create your own unique box or choose a standard box from our collection here.
For the foodie couple, we suggest anything from our range of food inspired gifts here. If it’s a stylish duo you’re looking to impress, we have a hand selected range of unique homewares and gorgeous bath and body luxe items available to you.
As gifting consultants, we have a little black book of contacts who can source almost anything! Yes that’s right. No matter how left of centre your idea is, we can source it. Better still, we’ll most likely have a relationship with the maker, manufacturer or seller meaning we can source it at a better price than the general public.
So if you’re looking for an alternative idea to what’s on display, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll help you locate that perfect piece.
To gift or not to gift? That, is the question. Of course, we sit firmly in the ‘gift it up!’ camp. Here’s why you should too.
Let’s face it, we all have that person in our lives who has *absolutely* everything. They’ve got their finger on the pulse and know about the coolest, must have gadgets and products before we even know how to pronounce them. They are all for treating themselves but therein lies the problem. We have nothing left to treat them with.
