Me and my husband will attend wedding this coming Tuesday. We can't decide what is the best wedding gift. I need your suggestion guys, what do you think is the best affordable wedding gift for newly wed couple?

I think most people usually think of electrical appliances when they are deciding what to get a couple for a wedding gift, and while most are practical gifts, they usually end up with two or three items that are the same. Maybe they will get two toasters, three coffee pots, etc...I think a practical gift would be something to decorate the house with. One gift that I remember getting is a hanging table that someone had hand made for us. It was macrame and beautiful, another gift was a plant hanger. I think a starter herb garden would be a great gift if you can find one. Have fun at the wedding.

I would also suggest giving them a rice cooker or maybe an electric fan That would be very practical and will come in use every single day of their married life. Also, a set of kitchenware would be nice.

I think it would be some electric appliances that is affortable to you. Or if they are close to you, along with this you can gift them something memorable like a wall hanging or something like photo frame which has their photos and best wishes for newly wed couple. Another choice is simply giving some cash and this small memorable present. One more choice instead of cash you can give them a gift card so that they can shop anything according to their choice. I hope I didn't created more confusion for you lol.

I think some amount of cash might be a practical gift. They might wanted to start a business or have some very important thing to buy . I guess the couple will be happier than giving of gift that might be a same gift with others which is not that important. Also , couple needs that money because might be they got no more savings after wedding because all money gone for wedding expenses.

i think the best wedding gift is something the couple could use in starting on their own. things like rice cooker or a coffee maker. if budget wouldn't be a problem, a flat screen television would be nice. the price really doesn't matter, as long as the couple need it.
