Gifts on a wedding and anniversary - the best ideas of

the marriages concluded in the fall were considered Earlier as the strongest. Now national beliefs consign to the past, but the fall still remains a traditional wedding time. Weddings happen different, but everything unites them indispensable presence of newlyweds - and something to give need to them. How to choose the best gift on a wedding?

On the question “What to Present to You on a Wedding?“ many couples, without reflecting, answer: “Money!“ . Often it suits guests - and shopping it is not necessary to go, to think, invent. Of course, money is a universal gift which will help newlyweds and their parents to compensate expenses on a wedding celebration that is always useful. However in universality of monetary gifts the dirty trick is also covered - money is depersonalized, and it is hardly possible to hope that several years later young spouses will remember your gift, as about something special. But there are also such cases when money - only the right decision:

Money should be given to Money should not be given to you learned
when: if:
about a wedding shortly before the celebration (for example, the wedding was spontaneous) the Groom and the bride are more senior than you or are absolutely young
you know that young people are under strained circumstances One of young people (or their parents) is your chief
you are a close relative or the friend of young people Young people are very wealthy
you know that newlyweds are conservative and other gift you will not understand are not too well familiar (but happens that money in that case are the only option)

If you breathed sigh of relief and decided to present cash, think once again - often young people, only married, are not able to dispose of the family budget yet. The money presented on a wedding evaporates in the first weeks after wedding, and life and remains uncomfortable. Couple to which for a wedding you gather, not from such, young and inexperienced?

And it is beautiful

, and it is useful

Not only an interesting gift on a wedding, but also the commemorative coins from precious metals released by the Bank of Russia can become a peculiar tool for investments. For example, gold and silver coins from the Zodiac signs series - in advance having learned dates of birth of the groom and the bride, you can present them the corresponding coins, with a parting word to get on a coin for each of future children. You want to be allocated - order a coin with original design, for example, inserts from jewels or crystals, the hologram or a color covering.

the Measured ingot from precious metal looks, maybe, not so effectively, but very clearly embodies stability and reliability. The Sberbank of Russia sells and buys gold ingots weighing from 1 to 1000 grams and silver - from 50 to 1000 grams.

Other “okolodenezhny“ option of a wedding gift - the gift cash card. It is simple to get it, to use even more simply (newlyweds will be able to pay with its help of purchase or daily expenses), and various face values make such cards available practically for any purse. Besides some banks offer special “gift“ design.

the Curious website “15 gifts“ (in English) suggests to specify by
age, sex, habits of that (or that) to whom you look for a gift - and issues the list from 15 things. It is not obligatory to buy these things at all, and the interesting idea can be spotted.

For the house, for life

In Russia wedding gifts symbolized wealth (furs, brocade, silk, feather-beds and pillows, big bowls and cups from silver), and also fertility and healthy posterity - for this purpose gave house living creatures (hens, ducks, pigs) which quantity had to be multiple 10. Each guest presented a small wattled basket with the hard-boiled eggs in many cultures symbolizing fertility.

Of course, now with boiled eggs and pigs do not go to a wedding, however to give to young people kitchen utensils, textiles, home decoration actually and today. Having consulted to parents of future spouses, you can always learn that it is necessary for young people. If there is no such opportunity, “the gift certificate of good shop of household appliances or interior salon can become a stick - a lifesaver“.

pair sets - glasses, plates, figurines, jewelry are of Particular importance - they personify a unification between spouses.

Getting a gift on a wedding, you remember that to give some things it is considered a bad sign. So before going to shop, be convinced that the groom and the bride are not superstitious - or refrain from purchase of a gift which can be misinterpreted.
