The big day is a precious few weeks away, and preparations are on in full swing. There are a hundred things to tick off your list, but have you given a thought to the most important of all? In some cultures, it is customary for the groom to gift something to his newly-wed bride. Whether you believe in it or not, it is always nice to let your better half know how much your union means to you and how happy you are, now that you are together. There are gifts, and then there are gifts that you can never forget. Since this is probably the happiest day for the two of you, you might want to jazz it up a little and gift her something unique and special. Give her a gift she will cherish forever.

Here are a few creative ideas to get you started:


Honeymoon on an Island: 

What better way to relax after the stressful wedding prep than whisking her away to an exotic island? It is the perfect way to celebrate your love, soaking in the sun, snorkeling and swimming, in utter seclusion from the rest of the world. There are a number of islands dotted around the globe that you can easily catch a flight to. Whether you are looking for something adventurous and wild or luxurious mini-hotels off the coast, there are a host of options to choose from. Among the popular and exquisite honeymoon islands are the Bora Bora islands, popular for the immediate access to the seas and Maui islands that offer mouthwatering delicacies and picturesque views.


You may be your wife’s best friend, but jewelry sure comes a close second. Agreed, it’s a cliché, but it has become one for a reason; because jewelry never fails to delight a woman! Depending on your budget, you can buy her an exquisite bracelet or a prized necklace. You might also want to experiment with stones other than diamonds, such as sapphire and tanzanite. Sapphires are also known as gemstones of the skies, and sometimes preferred over diamonds due to their rare nature.

Personalized collection of memories:

This will require some thought but it is the ultimate declaration of how much you care. You can have a wall in your room dedicated to a special collection of significant moments in your relationship, such as the engagement, important milestones in your life, and occasions with family and friends. You can also make a giant scrapbook-like compilation and include mementoes such as tickets of events you’ve been to, memorabilia from holidays you’ve taken together, and leave space for memories to come. Apart from memories, you can also customize your bed-room according to each of your likes and idiosyncrasies. Small gestures like these will be greatly appreciated by your bride.

Tick off her bucket list:

Everybody has a bucket list they want to fulfill before they die. By now, you hopefully know the items on her list and there is no better way of professing your love, than helping your loved one fulfill her dreams. It could be something huge such as starting a new business, or something simple such as taking belly dancing classes. While the latter will be easy to do, you can always provide her the encouragement she needs for the former in the form of an inspiring book and offer all the support she needs.  If she has been meaning to try activities such as horseback riding, taking a hot-air balloon ride or going for a play, then it is the perfect opportunity for the two of you to spend time together!
