Are you invited to a wedding and are not sure what to buy for the happy couple? Or are you married and have funny memories of bad wedding gifts? Either way, this list will be good entertainment and good information!
So what makes a great wedding gift anyway? It's probably fairly obvious, to most of us anyway, what would be considered a bad wedding gift. The strangest wedding gift I received was a shovel and a rake! However, since we had just bought our first home and got married simultaneously, it was put to good use and much appreciated in that situation. Had we been an older couple, on our 2nd marriage and combining households or if we had lived in an apartment... that would have been a bad gift!
These examples are light-hearted, and a bit silly. But don't be fooled... people have actually received these bad list items (and purchased them)!
Gift givers - Normally, couples enjoy thoughtful gifts or gifts that help to commemorate their special day. If you don't know the couple well enough personally to come up with a custom, couple-specific wedding gift, stick to what's on their registry list. If possible, always include a gift receipt just in case.
Couples - Getting a few bad gifts is unavoidable, but you should still send a 'thank-you' card anyway for the thought. Have some mercy, because some people just have different ideas about what makes a great gift! If you are really lucky, you'll be able to rejoice with the gift receipt!
