Giving wedding gifts is a big wedding culture that dates probably as far back as time itself. It is so big that when preparing to attend a wedding, one can spend almost a lifetime thinking of the perfect wedding gifts to present to the couple. We want to be remembered by the wedding gifts we give or impress the couple with our thoughtfulness.
However, between the seeming perfect wedding gifts we would love to present and us is the huge problem of budget. How much can you or are you encouraged to spend on wedding gifts? The cost of a plate of food served at the wedding (according to conventional wisdom) or as much as your bank account can afford? And really, what is an ideal wedding gift especially where the couple do not have a registry showing what gifts they prefer? This very easily moves the thought of wedding gifts from an act of graciousness to an outright burden.
Do you find yourself in one of the circumstances above? Do not worry. I have got you covered with five gift ideas the couple will always thank you for. Plus, you do not have to break a bank to afford them.
I love this, particularly for the ways a yam pounder can make a couple’s life easier. In Nigeria, we love good food but the problem is that because we are getting increasingly busy, we don’t have the time to pound yam the way our mother’s generation would. Should we not eat then because we don’t have time?
This yam pounder is multifunctional and is very handy for stirring, kneading, mixing, pureeing and cooking. It has pulse and timer functions with steamer attachment that comes with steam basket and lid. A couple can very easily whip up pounded yam and efo riro with this anytime they choose to, just because.
Need I say that we are generation fitfam, proactively driven to eating healthy? For this reason, a juice extractor is a welcome gift any day because one can never go wrong with freshly squeezed and healthy juice. Do bear in mind that there are also electric juice extractors.
I recently gifted a couple a food processor and you can imagine the bride’s excitement afterwards. This is a Nigerian wife’s companion, the one affair she can have outside of her husband. Imagine a processor that lets you mash potatoes for the baby, give that superb finish to ewa agonyin, slice vegetable for stir fries and casseroles, dice pepper without feeling like cutting off your hands afterwards due to the hotness. Ah! I can ooh and arrgh over this for days.
If you have ever been cooking late at night and suddenly run out of gas, then you will understand the reason why (as said in popular parlance) “not every time gas”. Plus, why would you want to spend hours cooking beans for example when you can get that business sorted in five minutes or less?
One of the differences between my kitchen and my mother’s is a cookware organiser that helps me stack my pots away neatly and nicely. As young people, we love to be trendy, which is cool and even more so if the trends are more functional. A cookware organiser shows the difference between a kitchen cabinet soaked with water and attacked by moth and a dry one. No bride will say no to this item, trust me.
Notice how these are relatively small items that a couple may not realise they need till they receive it? That is the secret to wedding gifts that win. Because you want your gift to stand out and be valued, you want to present an item that a couple does not already have but needs.
