A wedding is one of the most important days in a person’s life. Having received an invitation to the wedding as a guest, a gift is prepared for the newlyweds with the promise of family happiness and well-being. Going to a celebration with your brother, you want to present your loved one with an original and memorable present.
Even deciding to donate money, you should show imagination so that the heroes of the occasion will have vivid memories. In our publication, we will consider in detail what to give your brother for a wedding.
Tips for choosing original gifts
Table of Contents
There is a set of rules for the selection of wedding gifts. You should familiarize yourself with it before choosing a presentation:
- At the wedding, a gift is given to a newly-made family, and not to one of the newlyweds, from whose side you were invited. Therefore, as a presentation, you should choose things that involve sharing by a couple, and not exclusively for women or men.
- The interests and preferences of the couple must be taken into account. Fans of a quiet home holiday are unlikely to be delighted with a certificate for a joint parachute jump, if, moreover, one of the newlyweds has a strong fear of heights.
- It is important to consider the needs of the couple at the start of family life. A couple planning to live in a rented apartment after the wedding does not need to present bulky items. After all, they will eventually have to be transported to another living space. When you plan to buy an apartment, you will need everything that is useful in arranging a home nest. It is more appropriate for a young family living with their parents to donate things for individual use and the opportunity to be together in a romantic setting.
Regardless of what kind of present you are preparing for the wedding, you need to take care of beautiful packaging or original design to make the newlyweds a pleasant surprise.
The best options for a wedding presentation to a brother
A brother is a dear person whom you know from childhood, and therefore you, most likely, know all his hobbies and dreams. But, as we already wrote, a gift is being prepared for the wedding, intended for both newlyweds. Therefore, it is better to ask your brother about the preferred present. After all, you may not know all the plans and desires of the young couple.
Vivid impressions are no less important than material values. While the rest of the guests are making their financial contribution to the purchase of a separate apartment or car, prepare a certificate for your brother and his chosen one for a pastime that they will remember for a lifetime. Here are some options:
- Romantic hot air balloon flight. Now many companies involved in organizing weddings even include a flight of the newlyweds in a hot air balloon in the scenario of the celebration. It becomes part of a photo session for the newlyweds after the wedding ceremony. Perhaps your brother and wife will also want to drink a bottle of champagne, happily hovering above the ground, not only in the figurative, but in the literal sense of the words. But the surprise will be pleasant only if both spouses are not afraid of heights.
- Joint rest in the SPA center. Modern salons have already developed joint relaxation programs. You can choose one of the proposed programs or purchase a certificate for a certain amount. In the second option, the newlyweds will be able to independently choose the types of massage and other procedures. During the day spent in the SPA center, they will relieve the fatigue from the pre-wedding marathon and have a pleasant time together. They will remember the pleasant surprise you gave them forever.
The newlyweds who are fans of some performer or group will evoke vivid emotions with donated concert tickets.
When the idol’s performance takes place in another city, then you have the opportunity to organize a romantic weekend.
Purchase not only tickets for a concert with good seats, but round-trip tickets to the venue, and also book a hotel room.
Modern household appliances are invaluable helpers in organizing family life. Especially a lot of acquisitions are to be made by a couple planning to live in their apartment. They will need a lot of large and small equipment. You will be able to contribute to the acquisition of the necessary and desired equipment.
Since you are native people, offer to go shopping together and choose the equipment that the couple liked not only for technical characteristics, but for their design, and you will pay for it.
Quite often, young people prefer to decorate the interior of the kitchen, in a particular style, which provides for certain requirements for the appearance of all objects in the room. The interior in the style of Provence and high-tech is filled with appliances that have different designs.
It is possible to give your brother vivid emotions at the birthday party with the help of comic gifts. They can become the main gift or an attachment to the amount of money.
Comic gifts should be found in online stores specializing in such products. For example, purchase a set of high-quality bedding with pillowcases with the following embroideries: the king and the king’s wife.
Prepare a kit for a young wife and a young husband, packed in beautiful boxes. Pick up meaningful items they need in the household. Traditionally, the wife is given: a rolling pin, an apron, headache pills, etc.
The spouse receives a gift from his brother for his brother’s wedding: a hammer, nails, a set of tools to repair a faucet leaking in the bathroom, etc. T-shirts with comic prints are purchased in the supplement to the money present. For example, a spouse with the inscription: “Husband is always right!”, And to a spouse – “Wife, always right!”
How to give money to a brother in an original way?
If a couple plans to invest wedding money in real estate or movable property and asks everyone to bring gifts in envelopes, then figure out how to give money not trivial, but in an original way.
Here, in our opinion, are the most successful options:
- Umbrella with rain from bills. Get a beautiful paired umbrella and from the inside to the knitting needles tie multi-colored ribbons, and attach bills to them. Congratulating, say a phrase from Larisa Dolina’s song about solving all problems with an umbrella. At this moment, open the prepared present. The ribbons will straighten out, and you get a spectacular cash rain.
- A chest with a secret. In souvenir shops and specialized sites, you can purchase a small wooden chest with a double bottom. Put a cash present in a secret place, and a postcard with congratulations on the wedding in a prominent place and at the end write that the cash gift is in their hands, but it must be found.
The options we have considered not only evoke positive emotions at the celebration, but allow you to present the couple with small gifts for memory along with the money.
Spouses will be happy to use the presented umbrella on joint walks and hide money in the chest for a rainy day.
A loved one always wants to make a special gift that he will like. When choosing a present for your brother for a wedding, rely on common use by a married couple.
We offered to opt for the technique necessary for newlyweds, comic presentations, tickets for a concert, or certificates that give impressions. We also considered how to present a cash gift originally and memorably. We wish you a happy wedding!
