Getting hitched is one of the most wonderful milestones in a couple’s life. Now that members of the LGBTQ+ community can do so legally and celebrate their unions in so many countries across the world, all the more reason to commemorate the occasion with a present to match the ceremony! You, as the guest, have a difficult, albeit joy-filled challenge ahead of you. Picking out a gift worth the newlyweds can take time and coming up with a fabulous present is a worthy endeavor.
From gift registries that help you choose the finest option the couple will actually need, all the way to personalized presents with a unique edge – your options are many, but they’re not endless. Here are a few thoughtful options to consider for your LGBTQ+ newlyweds!
Spicing things up – in the kitchen, that is
If your friends are moving into a new, fabulous home to start their marriage on a fabulous note, it makes sense that they could use plenty of practical, yet characterful additions in their home. Their kitchen is one of the rooms where they’ll spend most of their time, and your gift can make that time more purposeful and delicious depending on what you choose.
● Cookware is a wonderful choice, as it entices them to prepare food together and experiment with new recipes regularly, without having to borrow the essentials every time they want to make pasta.
● Sets of knives can be both fancy and functional, and we all need a new knife or two!
● Cookbooks and recipes are always desirable. You know the couple best: if they love sweets or pastry, a dedicated cookbook with such recipes can get them started quickly. Maybe they’re all about French cuisine – so there’s another idea to consider.
● A spice rack to genuinely spice things up.
A customized relationship timeline
Do you have intimate, personal knowledge of the couple and their relationship? Then you’re the ideal candidate to create a personalized gift that will be both glam and timeless. You can create a timeline of their relationship representing the most crucial milestones, wrapping up with their marriage as yet another beginning in their story.
Use their photos, key events from their lives, and make sure to work with a brilliant designer. They’ll want to flaunt the timeline and show it to people, so all the more reason to make it beautiful as well as accurate.
Bedding sets for a sense of comfort
Practical, yet intimate, bedding sets contribute to the couple’s shared life, but also their interior design preferences. The bedroom is often dubbed the mecca of the marriage, so all the more reason to encourage their new start with a set made with quality and durability in mind. Bedding sets made by Wake in Cloud are, for example, the perfect blend of comfort and quality, both in an aesthetic and a functional sense.
Picking out the right pattern and material will help you make the right choice for the couple, while adding details such as throw blankets can elevate the look and feel of their bedroom. The right bedding promotes relaxation, good sleep, and not to mention healthy intimacy.
If you’re not inclined towards material presents, perhaps an experience such as a romantic getaway for the couple is the best way to give them a treat they’ll remember. Although they most likely already have a honeymoon planned, you can present them with a spa escapade for any weekend that suits their schedule.
Then again, if they are all about fitness, a yoga retreat in an exotic destination will give them the perfect sense of a repeat, or prolonged honeymoon.
A beauty set for the happy couple
Fabulous couples certainly appreciate when someone supports their beauty goals, so why not create a beauty gift set that combines their skin care needs? Encouraging their self-care efforts means that you’re also contributing to their physical and mental wellbeing, and we all know just how essential that is in the LGBTQ+ world.
This is no easy feat, we’ll grant you that. With the right tips at hand and with some imagination, you can come up with a present that your newlyweds will cherish and use. Use the knowledge you have, let it inspire your own creativity, and make sure you pick out a present that celebrates their union in all its glory.
