A wedding marks the beginning of a new phase of life for the couple. It is the beginning of a new partnership that will last lifelong. Well, in India, we believe in taking this partnership one step further to the next seven lives and not just this life. For such a special occasion, the gift also has to be very special. When it comes to your friend’s wedding, you have to get the gift right because the friend expects you to know his/her likes or preferences and hence the gift has to resonate with that.
We understand that choosing a gift for a friend’s wedding is not a simple task by any means. We will try to recommend some personalised wedding gifts ideas so that the gift selection task becomes somewhat easy.
- Personalised Coffee Mug for Coffee Lovers
In India, we have people who swear by their cup of tea and then we have coffee connoisseurs. These people can neither wake up without a coffee nor can sleep without a coffee. If your friend is someone whose day starts with a coffee and ends with a coffee, then a personalised coffee mug is one of the best gifts for him/her.
If you get to know from your friend that the to be spouse is also a coffee lover, then you can gift two personalised coffee mugs with a ‘Him’ and a ‘Her’ tag or some whacky lines. You may also add personalised coasters. Every time the couple will have their favourite coffee together, they will remember you.
