If you are active on social media, chances are you have seen an article in the Daily Mail where a bride complained to her friend that her £100 cheque was not acceptable as a wedding present and that the couple expected more. Luckily, most people do not have to deal with unreasonable individuals like the bride mentioned in this article, but when your ‘best friend’ is getting married, how do you choose the right gift for her?


It may seem easy since they’re your best friend, but buying a gift on one of the most important days of their lives can be a little more intimidating than expected. You may likely be a part of the wedding party, too, and feeling extra pressure. The first important step is to figure out your budget for a gift; what you are comfortable spending. Just because it is their wedding doesn't mean you should put yourself out. Once a budget is established, consider the following options.

Household Goods

Are the bride and groom moving in together after the wedding? If so, they likely have a registry at a local or online store where you can choose to purchase something they have picked out, or surprise them with something that they didn't that you know they will love. If they already have a home, they may not need anything.

Jewellery

Some girls choose to buy their best friend a necklace that they can wear after their wedding and sometimes surprise them with a gift from the infamous Tiffany and Co. This is a unique option that will remind your friend just how thrilled you were to be a part of their special day.

Contribute to the Honeymoon

If you are uncomfortable giving cash, perhaps ordering an excursion or once in a lifetime experience is more of interest to you. You can also choose to have something sent to their room while they are away, and most people choose things like champagne, or a stocked mini bar for the couple to enjoy. As long as you know where they are going, the possibilities are endless.
