If you have a wedding on your calendar for this summer, we have a few ideas to help you make it feel like the best day ever (besides your own, of course). Our editors have put together some of the best wedding gift ideas and helpful tips for the big event.
Some couples need money, and that’s okay, too: you may even want to suggest this to the bride or groom. If they’re having a rustic- or outdoorsy-themed wedding, here’s the perfect gift cards box for receiving envelopes and cards.
While your dress for that special day and evening out may have been picked montbs ago, nothing says “put together” quite like a guilded quilted tote handbag (to replace that super heavy diaper bag you’re likely used to toting around). Check out Walmart’s wide handbag selection; I like this one for its versatility.
Now that you’re picture-ready, be a hero with this Fujifilm Instax Camera that helps you take bold and vibrant pictures, even in low lighting. Then print out a shot on the spot … I’ll tell you why in a minute!
Use this fun and funky Fujifilm Canada Inc camera (available in a variety of colours) to take instant photos. It comes equipped with auto flash, a built-in selfie mirror and a close-up lens attachment. This trendy little camera uses Fujifilm Instax mini instant colour film (sold separately).
Okay, so now you have that picture—in hand—of their walk down the aisle or their first dance. Make sure to bring along the perfect picture frame, pop the picture in the frame, drop it in a gift bag and leave it for the happy couple to open later. The bride and groom will be amazed at your foresight and thoughtfulness. On a side note, the camera is a great way to keep little ones occupied during the longer parts of the day. Just be sure to pack extra film!
Speaking of things to open later, Walmart has countless wedding gifts for you to bestow upon the newlyweds, but why risk them receiving two of the same traditional small appliances? How about gifting them this decadent beauty: a De’Longhi stainless steel espresso and cappuccino machine? I’m pretty sure they’ll think of you gratefully every morning. Sip … Ahhhhhhh. You’re the best!
This stainless-steel coffee machine by De’Longhi is engineered to brew espresso and cappuccino at just the right temperature with two separate thermostats. It helps make espresso and cappuccino easier to brew without messy clean-up thanks to the anti-drip design.
Every couple should have a good, quality bag for travel. This one by Air Canada features spinner wheels for extra ease in zipping through a terminal to your gate. This carry-on helps add peace of mind because it’s the right size to fit in the cabin with you (according to Air Canada’s Carry-on Baggage dimension requirements).
If you prefer a gift that is just a bit more personal, suggest that your friends register with Walmart Registries and then you will know exactly what they want, and your well-intentioned toaster won’t be added to the Returns pile.
Why play a guessing game when it comes to what you’re gifting this summer? Encourage your friends to register at Walmart.ca to eliminate the guesswork of choosing the perfect wedding gift.
We hope you are inspired to pick out the perfect wedding gift for the happy couple. Have a great time at the wedding, knowing your presence and your presents will be well received.
