Ten Budget-Friendly Bride and Groom Gifts


Just because you’re on a budget doesn’t mean you love your bride or groom any less — you just have to be creative when it comes to gift-giving.

Between all the last minute details, seating arrangements, guest arrivals, etc., it can be easy to forget (whoops!) a little token for your spouse-to-be. And don’t think it has to involve a trip to Tiffany & Co. or Cartier to be memorable — quite the contrary. Even a hand-written note with a few trips down memory lane is especially sweet.

If you’re looking to give a little something, here are 10 ideas for your future spouse that will make an impression without breaking the bank.

FOR THE GROOM:

1. THOUGHTFUL JOURNAL: Sometimes words are all you need.

2. BOURJOIS SHOOT: There’s nothing like the “sexy” you feel as a bride-to-be. Why not capture it for your new hubby? This doesn’t have to be an expensive endeavor, either. It seems everyone has a good camera these days, so ask a good friend (someone you feel comfortable with!) to snap some shots.

3. QUIRKY SOCKS: Budget friendly and adorable, you can customize a pair with a fun joke or sweet nothing.

4. BE ON TIME, PLEASE: This isn’t a Rolex-or-nothing situation. Men love watches, and you can find some great ones at affordable prices.

5. CUFFED STYLE: Cliché, we know, but customized cuffs are something he can keep and use forever.

FOR THE BRIDE: 

1. NOTE FROM YOUR {SOLE}MATE: How would you like to find this surprise note as you’re getting ready? Hello, tears!

2. BUCKET LIST FOR TWO: Present her with a list of things you would like to do and places you wish to see with her.

3. LUCKY CHARM: A modern-day charm bracelet like these from ALEX AND ANI is a thoughtful piece of jewelry that will become one of her go-to pieces. Add one each anniversary for a cool tradition she’ll look forward to for years to come.

4. CASH ‘EM IN: Coupons for massages, dinner and a movie, kisses and more will go a long way with the new Mrs.

5. FLOWERS FOR A YEAR: With a year of bouquets lined up, she’ll never give you grief for not bringing her flowers. How’s that for insurance?
