This is one of the Indian gift ideas that are both traditional and liked by everyone. Who does not love jewellery? A trendy and stylish gold necklace or a set of diamond earrings, or a pearl pendant. The gift can also be some kind of custom made jewellery or a bracelet for the groom and/or bride. Either way, you can go for what you think would be beautiful, keeping in mind the style of the bride and the groom. Decorate them in a box and while presenting them, you can open the box and give it to the couple.

2. Shoes

Like jewellery, shoes are also an all-time favourite gift for anyone. Although it might be a bit of a difficulty finding the shoe size of the bride and the groom, however, if you are quite certain about such Indian gift ideas, you can buy them a nice pair of shoes useful for an occasion or two – such as, pairs of sports shoes to remind them of the importance of exercise, or pairs of sandals for a beach day or some special and exquisite party wears. Wrap them up nicely and prepare them for a nice surprise.

3. Perfumes

Perfumes involve more of a personal choice and you may never know what a person likes when it comes to scents. Thus, this is recommended if you know the bride and the groom personally or close enough to have an idea about his or her favourite and preferred opinion based on this particular item.

In order to decorate your perfume bottle just wrap lace around it and take some beaded string and put pearl at the end and attach those strings in the centre. Take a ribbon, cut it in the shape of a flower and tie that around the neck of the bottle to give it a vintage look.

4. Books

If the new couple is into reading, then, perhaps, books are the best Indian gift ideas for them. Try to pick something related to the bride and the groom’s preferred reading tastes or their favourite genre. In order to be a little classy with this gift, go for the hardcover versions of their favourite genres or authors. Write a sweet note inside the book to bring a smile to their faces.

A cookbook might be a bit different and unique gift from your side. Gifting a cookbook with exquisite recipes might give the couple a chance to venture into a brand new territory. Plus, it is always fun to try on new recipes every now and then! Putting them inside a handmade box would give the gift your personal touch and this increase aura and the sentiment of this gift.

5. Personalised Gift Set Item

You can personalise them by writing the bride and the groom’s names on them. Another idea is to write their favourite quote or a piece of their favourite poems on them. Choose classy and sober designs and colours for this kind of gifts.

Another set of personalised items are photo albums. You can personalise them with the couple’s photo on the front cover. You can also engrave their names on it. To make it a bit more special and unique, you can choose to insert a space for ‘date’ at the bottom of every photo space.
