FAQ for Wedding Gifts

A wedding is a happy occasion but it can be a challenging time for those invited to attend the event. Guests are expected to buy some sort of gift for the new couple, but what do you get? Do you get something practical like a coffee maker from their registry or from a collection like the Willow Tree Collection here on Coppins Gifts?  Here are some of the answers to the commonly asked questions about buying and giving wedding gifts:

Q: Can I Buy Something Not on the Registry?

A: It’s absolutely fine because the registry is meant to help give guests an idea of what the couple would like for their new home. If you decide to away from the registry make sure you are still matching the style for the items they have on the registry.

Q: How Soon From RSVP Do I Have to Get the Wedding Gift?

A: One year, but ideally, it should be purchased and sent to the couple’s home before the wedding so they can remove the items from their registry before the big day. If you wait till after the wedding be sure to get the gift to them right away so you do not forget!

Q: Is Cash Better Than a Gift? Wedding Gift FAQ

A: Not necessarily, but it can be tricky. For some couples, it may be what they need to help pay for the new home, their honeymoon, or other things they want or need.  If you are uncomfortable with cash gifts, consider gift cards to their favorite restaurants or stores.

Q: The Registry Gifts Are Too Far out of My Price Range — What Do I Do?

A: There is no need to feel compelled to by something you cannot afford. Get creative and think about things they could use or that they would like. A great gift would be a collectible to commemorate their special day, such as something from the wedding line of the Willow Tree Collection.

Q: Can I Go in With a Group on a Big-Ticket Item?

A: You certainly can but it takes care to ensure it all goes well. Make sure everyone knows how much they are responsible for, who will order and pick up the item, who is collecting the money, and the timing of it all. Also, ensure the couple knows who all went in to get the gift so no one seems to be skimping out on a gift.

Why Do We Give Gifts?

Gift giving is a tradition in just about every known culture across the globe and it has long been a favorite subject for studies regarding human behavior. This practice of gift giving has long been explored and studied by psychologists, anthropologists, historians, economists, and even modern marketers. They all reveal amazing things and all studies have found that giving gifts is actually a very complex and involved process that has deep meanings for cultural, religious, social, relationship, and personal growth and development.

Psychologists have long said, and it still holds true, that it is often the giver and not the recipient that reaps the most benefits from the act of giving gifts. With there being so much value put on the practice of gift giving, whether it is during the holidays, during personal celebrations, or just for the sake of doing something good, there are many who wonder where to get the best gifts?

The key to gift giving is to give from the heart and to receive with gratitude — and few things embody both of those like our impressive line of Willow Tree figures.

The holidays come and go throughout the year and wit personal events such as birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, and other big life events that call for celebration there seems to always been a need to buy and give gifts. It can be tempting to cut off the gift giving and during hard economic times this may be a sensible course of action, but it is very important that you not cue yourself off completely form giving or receiving gifts.
