Upon saying ‘I do’, you both start a completely new chapter in life, and things start changing not just for you, but for your friends as well. When your good friends are getting married, you have a lot on your mind: you want to look good, you want to have a good time, and you most certainly want to give them a good and useful gift. For those who don’t like big and complicated gifts, there are minimalist gifts which are useful and thoughtful, and which the newlyweds will love.
A set of wine glasses
Everyone needs a nice set of wine glasses in their home, or perhaps a couple of sets – one for special occasions, like Christmas, anniversaries, and birthdays, and another for casual gatherings of friends. You can choose from those handy ones which will never break and the ones which will be proudly displayed every Christmas. There are useful bendable silicone wine glasses which can be folded and carried in one’s pocket, or stainless steel glasses, which will conveniently keep the wine cold for a long time. By giving your friends a set of unusual or unique wine glasses, you will give them something which will always be a great conversation starter. This way, they will always mention you and your good taste.
Unique photo frames
There isn’t a person who doesn’t like photographs – they are a wonderful reminder of our most cherished moments and dearest people in our lives. A young couple will probably have a lot of wonderful wedding photos they will want to display, and you can give them the loveliest photo frames they will proudly place in their home. Prinkbox offers a variety of unique gifts such as wonderful prismatic photo frames where the photo looks like it is floating between two panes of glass. This frame can be placed on a table or hung on a wall, but its innovative design will always draw everyone’s attention.
A nice set of bed sheets is what everyone needs, especially if they are high-quality ones made of Egyptian cotton or really funny and creative ones that will be great for showing off. The newlyweds will enjoy a set of nice bed sheets which will make their bed warm and comfortable, while their bedroom will look more luxurious. Also, they will always have a nice spare set of bed sheets for guests. If you want to make it funny, you can give them pizza or hamburger-style bed covers, or you can be romantic and give them ‘king and queen’ or ‘Mickey and Minnie’ sheets.
A blender or a juicer
A high-quality juicer or blender is something that every young couple wants because it gives them a chance to adopt a healthy habit and drink freshly squeezed juices and delicious smoothies every morning. They can also use it to make delicious salad dressing or try out many great dip recipes. Not only that, but if they plan on having children, they will be able to make baby food in their kitchen.
Today, many people decide to give the newlyweds an envelope with money, while on the other hand, there are those who believe that giving money doesn’t exclude the possibility to give a small gift, too – a gift which will show how well you know them and how much they mean to you. Whatever you choose to do, remember that this day is about your good friends celebrating their love, and that you are a great part of their life.
