When you attend the wedding of a friend or family member, you want to give the couple something that expresses your love and good wishes for a happy life. Crystal is a traditional wedding gift that is both beautiful and luxurious, and the couple is sure to use it on special occasions for many years.
When purchasing a crystal gift for newlyweds, search for something that is both useful and in tune with the couple's unique tastes. Kitchenware, such as crystal pitchers, serving platters and bowls with intricate designs, are classic choices. If the couple enjoys a strong drink, crystal brandy glasses, bar glasses and vodka sets are sure to be appreciated. If the couple is moving into a new home, consider giving a crystal vase or clock. A colored crystal animal figurine is a fun, unique gift that adds a beautiful touch to the couple's home.
Before purchasing a beautiful crystal gift, think carefully about the couple's lifestyle. For people who live in a small home or move frequently, large crystal objects, such as vases and bowls, become a hassle. In such cases, opt for a small crystal figurine, crystal picture frame, set of crystal wine flutes, set of salt and pepper shakers or any other portable item.
Crystal gifts are timeless treasures that newlyweds are sure to love. Be sure to check any crystal item for breakage before wrapping the box, and consider placing a "Fragile" sticker on a wrapped gift to avoid mishandling. Whatever gift you choose, you never go wrong with a piece of lovely, sparkling crystal.
