How To Gift Your Friends For Wedding , Post Corona May 19, 2020 – Posted in: Blog

The coronavirus pandemic has caused many to cancel their weddings, birthdays, and anniversaries as the world is increasingly being told to stay inside and maintain social distancing.

But people have gotten creative.

While wedding season might currently be on hold, your time staying at home could be wisely used to shop online and plan a wedding gift.  Spend some time landing on the perfect gift for couples you love whose weddings might be postponed.  But act fast—you may still find yourself logging on to your friends’ registry, only to realize that only random dishware, appliances, serving ware, or basic bed and bath options remain for you to give the bride and groom-to-be. And that is where this list of ideas comes in.

 

Create a Gift Registry

One can’t over-emphasize the importance of a gift registry, especially now.  A gift registry allows couples to create their wishlist of products, gift cards, holidays, cash, and charities they like.  Guests can buy or contribute to anything on this list. 

The advantages are many.  Each gift the couple receives is one they use and love (since they chose it in the first place), saving them precious time and money otherwise needed to set up their new home.  Plus, nothing needs to be stowed away in the infamous ‘regifting cupboard’! For wedding guests, the registry is hugely convenient as it allows them to buy a memorable gift within their budget, eliminates the need to shop and carry a box to the wedding, and delivers their gifts directly to the couple.  Particularly in troubled times as with the Corona, when guests can’t physically make it to the wedding, a registry ensures they can still send the couple their love and blessings!

While shopping outside the wedding registry, Stop stressing about finding the perfect wedding gift AuGrav have rounded up ideas that will have the newlyweds in awe of your taste level, and grateful you chose something off their wishlist.

When actor Priyanka Chopra tied the knot with American singer Nick Jonas, they opted for a wedding registry of gifts ranging from home basics, travel essentials to pet accessories, making the concept popular.  And after actors Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh requested guests to donate to a charity they supported, it’s also an accepted form of gifting.

 

(b) Go For The Cashless Way

According to wedding planners, the trend seems to have caught on, and more and more enquiries keep pouring in for such cashless gifting at weddings.  Options like Paytm and wire transfers seem to be a hot pick for many. Couples feel that this is great from an investment point of view, and the couples can utilize the lump sum amount however they wish to.

 

(c)  The Gift Card

A Perfect Blend Of Affordability And Versatility

Smart speaker to make life easier

Transitioning out of college life is hard—you barely know how to do laundry let alone do your taxes. And while the Amazon Echo can’t help with either of those, it can help your new grad with a lot of other things.  The 3rd generation model is our favorite smart speaker because it has great sound quality, a ton of applications, and far-field voice recognition (so they can talk to Alexa from any room in their apartment!).

We are more emotional about what we wish to give the couple out of love, not request. Registries and e-gifts may be a great concept for new age couples but will never go well with the older generation.
