It is the wedding season….
….and it is simply joyous. Apart from the merry season of Christmas (birth of the Bethlehem king, Jesus) and amidst the soulful Christmas carols, Indians indulge in the grand fervor of weddings with the chirpy and tuning dance numbers (I’m already tapping my feet with the wedding songs in mind). This is the best season and month of the year, including the excitement of my birthday, yay!
Okay, so I’m busy this month, every next day, attending a wedding or a Mehendi or Sangeet ceremony. Life’s bliss at the moment, you know! But, naturally for the families where the wedding’s happening, are completely busy with the preparation and trying to make the best ends meet. I mean we want the wedding to be perfect and full of joy, right?
One important part of Indian weddings is the return gift system to the attendees and we always are so taken by the costumes, makeup, jewelry and other aspects of the wedding, that we often forget on this important aspect. After all, pleasing our wedding attendees is also important, no? Ethnic gifts and a dedicated plan on return gifts can be useful.
I’ve composed this post talking about those forgotten-yet-important part of weddings- return gifts! So, let’s dive in.
The top 6 Wedding Return Gift ideas
1. Hand-made gifts
The idea of hand-made seems very ethnic and beautiful to me. A set of handmade bead potlis, handcrafted candles or hand painted bottle is unique and creative and your relatives and friends will definitely adore the idea.
2. The sets idea
With sets I mean, set pieces of glasses, vessels or bowls is authentic and can please your attendees to the core. After all, they can be put to use.
3. Elegant pieces
Another best idea for return gifts is silver plated sets of vessels, bowls or spoons. Also, beautiful designs of silver plated miniature gifts is a thumbs up.
4. Beautifully crafted candle-works
These are one of the best gift ideas and handcrafted candles or meticulously crafted designs on candles are great for return gift ideas.
5. Decorative Showpieces
Jaipur designs are in trend now and beautifully designed and decorative showpieces add a charm to one’s house and gifting one to your friends and relatives is awesome and would be greatly liked by them.
6. Dry fruits
This is the common staple in return gifts and why not, because your wedding attendees must feel the sweetness and richness of your special day for long.
