You’ve been invited to a friend’s wedding. Luck you! You’ve bought a suit, organised travel and now all there’s left to do is buy them a gift. But you can’t think of anything. What will everyone else buy? You don’t want your gift to cash with someone else’s right?
Here, we’ve put together 5 of the best gift ideas out there that’ll work for pretty much any couple.

A gift from their registry – The first port of call should be their registry or gift list. This will give you an idea of the kinds of things they’re in need of. Some of it will be way out of your budget, but then there will be stuff more inclined towards the money you have.
What you must make sure of is that you don’t buy the exact same gift as another guest. That would be embarrassing.
Money – It sounds a little thoughtless, but what you must remember is that the bride and groom are probably in need of help financially. Perhaps they’re saving for something big like a new house or a new car, or maybe they need a little help climbing out of debt.
Regardless of what it is, I guarantee that they’ll be happy with money as a wedding gift.
Something personal – You’ve been invited to the biggest day of their lives so you probably have a reasonably close relationship with them. Why not remind them of that relationship or give them something to cherish that’s personal to the both of you.
A photo frame filled with pictures of you both for example. Or an old toy you once both played with when you were younger.
Personal gifts often prove to be the most popular.
Jewellery – If you’re buying specifically for the bride, you can’t go wrong by purchasing personalised, designer jewellery. Here at Chris Winspear we have a selection of pieces perfect for those of you looking to buy the perfect gift for the next wedding.
We even have the more corporate gifts for the groom too!
Gift basket – For those of you on a tighter budget then why not consider a wedding gift basket? Fill it with champagne, flowers, bath treats, sweets and anything else you think the bride and from might like. It’s a lovely gift that doesn’t mean you have to break the bank.
