Think about what you need around your house; IE like dishes canisters, butter dish, tupperware, cooking pans for cookies things like that.

Make a video of them, collect a pictures of them from adoloscent up to now, put a background themesong, maybe their themesong. Also put some collected interviews from their close pals, on how they meet and fell in love. That is one of the romantic gift, but time consumable. This is only my suggestion.

that has always been a problem to me too. lately i came to a decision that from now on i'll just give a gift check and a card. that way they can use it for something they really want.

It is easy to say that if they are registered somewhere to get them something from that list. When I got married, we had registered and as a result we ended up with a lot of china and flatware that we almost never used and a share of which I got when we got divorced that I don't know what to do with it. The best thing would be if you know them well enough then come up with something that way, but you probably wouldn't be asking if that were the case. How formal of a wedding is it and how well off are the families? This would also be something that could affect what to get. It seems to me that if they are fairly well off, than they would be registered somewhere and if you aren't really close then that would be the way to go. If they aren't so well off then some kind of necessity while maybe not elegant might be very appreciated, especially if no else had thought of it. It is a technical era, so if they already have cell phones and all kinds of stuff like that, maybe adding time to their plan if you can find how to do that would be a unique gift and there are always computer accessories and things like that which they might like even if they are not particularly traditional. You are in India and I'm in the US so some of my suggestions may not be appropriate because of cultural differences. Of course if you know them well and they don't particularly need something, then something that is more personal and has some representation of your friendship or connection with them would be something to consider. Good luck.

That is really a complicated question to answer. Wedding day is a sepcial day for new couples.So i think the gifts should be special too. new couples' backgrounds,economic conditions,job,their personalilties are the factors we should concerned first.

If they aren't registered anywhere, so that you know what they want and what others have already purchased, then you either need to be very creative or very conservative. If you know the couple and their tastes extremely well, be creative. Go shopping with no pre-conceived notions about what you will purchase for them, just browse until something catches your eye and your imagination. If you are not sure that your taste will match theirs, the safest way to go is with a gift certificate. But even in that you can be creative. Maybe a gift certificate for a day at a spa for both of them, or to a fancy restaurant they might like. You can go totally safe with a gift card to a favorite store or a mall. If you are completely at a loss as to what to get them, a gift of money card be well appreciated.
