These days it seems that most couples choose to have a gift registry, it makes sense and certainly minimizes the risk of presenting the newly weds with either, wedding present ideas they have already received or worse still they don't like!
The store where the registry is held will be full of great wedding gift ideas so you won't have any trouble finding something appropriate. If you want your present to stand out from the crowd, scroll down for some tips on creative presentation.
Duvet cover, sheets, pillows and so on. Use a set of empty gift boxes with lids in different sizes. Line the boxes with tissue paper and place each gift inside. Stack the boxes on top of each other like a tower and add lashings of gorgeous ribbons and bows.
Luxurious towels, matching bathrobes and so on. You could use the same box idea for the bathrobes as the one above for the bedroom linen, one robe to each box is good! Choose a box that will fit the robe in nice and snugly but make sure you have enough room to get the lid of the box on comfortably.
For the towels try rolling each towel individually and tying with a chiffon ribbon in a complimentary color. Use a box lid as a tray and sit the towels side by side. Place your larger towels on the bottom then the next size on top, and keep going until you have a triangle shape (or a square, depending on how many towels you have!). Be careful to place all the towels facing the same way and then cellophane wrap and add a gorgeous bow to finish off. Just make sure you have the neater side of the wrapped towels facing you when you tie your bow!
Pure white linen makes great wedding gift ideas, try using a combination of white tulle and silver decorations to wrap your presents, absolutely stunning.
Try presenting a selection of yummy treats on a beautiful white china platter or cake stand. Line the tray with a cloth or tissue paper first for extra protection, and then place your gifts on top. Lie them down with the labels facing up, be careful not to put glass items together if you can help it. Either place another item in between or scrunch up small amounts of cellophane and tuck that in and around the breakable items.
