Unique Wedding Gift Ideas (August, 2005)

It might almost seem to you that everybody is getting married this year. There are parties galore – from engagement parties to bridal showers to the wedding itself. You’re happy for the Bride and Groom but buying gifts for all these joyous occasions can, quite candidly, put a strain on your pocketbook.

Want some great gift ideas that won’t break the piggy bank? Here at, we put our heads together and came up with our list of suggestions for that perfect – and affordable – gift.

For a Bachelorette party, we like to give something fun and a bit risqué. At, you can find a pair of matching Bride and Groom boxer shorts. Machine-washable with an elasticized waistband, the Bride’s boxer shorts features pearl-like buttons and has lace trim. The Groom’s shorts are designed to look like a tuxedo, ideal for the guy who likes to look dressed up while he’s relaxing at home. Only $20.99 each.

If you want something distinctive for the Bride who has everything, provides numerous gift selections for a Bridal Shower or Wedding. An exquisite hand-blown Millefiori perfume bottle adorned with delicate gold filigree, using a technique that dates back to 1291 AD, sells for $35.

For a playful reminder of the couple’s commitment to each other, offers luxurious 100% cotton hand towels with the words “for richer”, “for poorer”, “forever” embroidered in black stitching. Tied in ribbon, this set of three 19” x 28” towels can be purchased for $45.

Perhaps you’d like to give something in keeping with the holidays. The world’s largest Christmas store is, where you can find personalized glass ornaments (including Double Bells, Congratulations, and Two Hearts Joined) starting as low as $15.

For the busy professional Bride with limited time to spend in the kitchen, or who just isn’t wild about whipping up a meal, she’ll love your gift from Easy and convenient, filet mignons, lobsters, gourmet desserts, and other specialty items are delivered straight to her door. And if she owns a dog, don’t forget Fido. He’ll go wild over the pet steak packages.
