Why It Should Be A Must to Register For A Wedding Gift List

Published

on

Normally in an occasion like a wedding, we’re used to buying the couple a home warming gift. A wedding gift list is a way for friends and family to pick what the couple needs and get it for them, the guests purchase gifts which are then checked off the list, this way ensuring that the couple who are about to get married will receive what they truly need.

Registering for a wedding gift list isn’t a tradition that we’re really used to doing in Egypt, but after giving it much thought, we believe that it should be a must to have a wedding gift list and here is why!

Gifting Newly Weds With What they Truly Need!

Having a gift list will ensure that couples receive only the gifts that they actually want! Originally, gift lists were created to help newly weds set up their home. We’re already used to buying the newly weds homey gifts, then why don’t we make sure to pick from a list what they really need and that way, really help them out?

Less Expenses For the Couple

Couples, especially in Egypt, spend thousands and hundreds of cash on getting their house ready, many girls find it hard to buy everything that they need because of the high expenses! So, having others pitch in and getting her some of her needs is a great way to save the couple money.

And when it’s your turn to marry, she sure will do the same for you! So it’s practically a win win situation.

No Chance for Doubling a Gift

Sometimes because these gifts go unplanned, a couple might end up getting the same gift twice or even more. Registering for a wedding gift list helps avoid that, which means couples won’t be bothered with duplicated gifts.

Will Save YOU Time and Effort

Knowing exactly what to buy the couple and from where to get it can actually save you the time and the effort of finding the right gift, you won’t have to think twice and will be 100% sure you got them the right gift.

Now, some of you may find this a bit offensive or too straightforward, others might perceive it as a great and efficient way especially if you’re doing it with your close circle.

So, what if we started making this a habit and a tradition? Can you imagine the number of brides who can benefit from this? Especially with everything being quite expensive these day.

Share with us your opinion on the topic and stay tuned as we tell you more on how to create a wedding gift list, what items you must include and how to politely ask for it!
