Presents for the bride
Typically guests at a wedding prefer to take something that is useful for both partners. However, gifting the bride and groom separately is also an option. If the bride is your best friend or your favourite cousin or just very close to you in one way or the other, then you're probably willing to spend a little more on her gift than the one you're planning to get the groom. This is acceptable. The important thing is to ensure that you get both of them something.
If you're equally close to both and want to split your budget and get them separate yet similar gifts partner jewellery is a great idea! It is romantic, meaningful and something that they will value forever! Buy partner rings and bracelets in beautiful designs, online on Lesara.
Gifts for the groom
Your closest buddy or brother is getting married and you obviously want the best gift for the groom! But if it's the wedding season and you're a social butterfly, chances are that you're invited to more than one. Then, a good way to go about setting your budget for the gift, is to look at how much you'll be spending on weddings throughout the year and then come up with a price range that is feasible under your current financial situation. You will of course prioritise based on how close you are to the person getting married and spend accordingly. Don't forget the bride! If you want to save yourself the stress of coming up with separate ideas for the two, just select a home & lifestyle product useful for both! Find practical gifts for home, for instance a state-of-the-art vacuum cleaner, in our online shop.
