Check out these ideas for fail-safe wed­ding gift presents

It’s not al­ways that you get to freely choose what to give as a wed­ding present, but when you’re given the chance by the cou­ple who couldn’t care less about a registry, it’s time you go all out and find not just the coolest gifts but the prac­ti­cal ones too. Here are seven wed­ding gift ideas you might want to sur­prise the cou­ple with as they build their new home.


New­ly­weds, es­pe­cially those who are still on hon­ey­moon-high, are al­ways itch­ing to go on ad­ven­tures with their other half. A pic­nic bas­ket set, where the cou­ple can safely store frag­ile uten­sils will come in handy when they de­cide to go up North or down South for a stay­ca­tion by the beach or up the moun­tains.


For cou­ples who en­joy drink­ing a cup of tea ev­ery­day, a glass teapot as wed­ding gift is what their dreams are made of. A glass teapot will give the cou­ple an el­e­gant way to make and in­dulge in their fa­vorite teas, whether they pre­fer hav­ing it in the morn­ings, af­ter­noons or right be­fore bed­time.


A wooden mag­netic knife rack is the per­fect wed­ding gift for the cou­ple who is still build­ing their new home. This type of knife rack will be a unique and stylish ad­di­tion to their soon-to-be kitchen.


Cou­ples ap­pre­ci­ate a per­son­al­ized piece for a wed­ding present, too, and a cus­tom il­lus­trated por­trait art of the new­ly­wed is the right di­rec­tion. Other than the fact that it adds to the thought­ful­ness of the gift, this par­tic­u­lar por­trait art is also some­thing they can hang on the wall as state­ment piece.


The ex­cit­ing (mi­nus the stress) part of mar­ried life is build­ing a new house to­gether. With this in mind, it is al­ways prac­ti­cal to give the cou­ple some­thing that’s use­ful for their home. A shag rug, for ex­am­ple is a great idea for a present that the new­ly­weds can show­case in their liv­ing room for its fash­ion-smart col­ors and styles.


For the green-thumbed cou­ple who loves grow­ing plants in­side their home, a metal­lic plant stand is what they need. A metal­lic plant stand can be made as an ac­cent piece for their plants since it also comes in dif­fer­ent lengths to give dif­fer­ent lev­els when ar­rang­ing plants at home.


Honey­moons are only the start of a life­time of ad­ven­tures with their other half, so the cou­ple will def­i­nitely need a re­li­able lug­gage to use for their fu­ture trav­els. An alu­minum carry- on lugg age ice i cho fo good a s r m i ni of their va­ca­tion sout h o m e t o w n


They are often spot­ted be­hind the scenes in many of these beau­ti­ful wed­dings we’ve seen or been to. Their role is cru­cial as they over­see every­thing that hap­pens in the cou­ple’s most un­for­get­table day of their lives. The magic touch of these wed­ding or­ga­niz­ers turn wed­ding dreams into re­al­ity. Their over­flow­ing pas­sion for their craft drives them to cre­ate a hap­pily ever af­ter for cou­ples, just as what these four wed­ding or­ga­niz­ers love to do.
