Great Gifts for Your New Wife
During the weeks leading up to your wedding day, your soon-to-be-wife will do a ton of work that you probably won't even see. When you're off having drinks with your buddies, she and her friends are making party favors. When you're up late writing a report for work, she's finalizing a seating chart that involves so many factors it would give Einstein a headache.
Giving her the perfect wedding day gift can show how much you appreciate her and her hard work.
Find Something Personal That Symbolizes Your Relationship
You've just spent a bunch of money on a wedding party, so you probably don't need to get her an extravagant gift. Lucky for your bank account, the best gifts don't usually cost a lot of money.
Try to find something that symbolizes your relationship or recalls an important moment in your past. You should come up with your own idea, but you can use these to jumpstart your thinking process
Mix CD with the first songs that were playing during special moments (first kiss, first dance, etc.)
A poem describing some of her best qualities
A letter telling her exactly why you want to get married
A photo album showing the evolution of your relationship
Get Her Something for the Honeymoon
Instead of looking back to the past, look forward to the future by getting her something you can use during the honeymoon. You can go the practical route, if that suits your relationship, or you can go for something a bit more outrageous.
Some presents that you might consider include
Snorkeling equipment for a honeymoon in the Caribbean
A nice dress to wear at a fancy restaurant
Mr. and Mrs. luggage tags
A bikini, umbrella, and sunblock lotion for your beach vacation
A journal so she can write about her favorite experience during your first vacation as a married couple
You could also go for something a little more risqué. You should know your fiancée better than just about anyone, so try to get inside her mind and decide what type of present she would really love.
Just think, this is the first present that you will give your wife. Make it something special that you'll both remember and cherish forever. No pressure or anything, but you only get to do this once, so make sure you do it right.
