Looking for wedding gift ideas? If so, there are a lot of people in the same boat. The problem with coming up with wedding gift ideas isn't so much thinking of something the couple might need, but thinking of something they need that everyone else isn't going to buy. Wedding registries can be a big help in this department, but if you don't have access to one, your task becomes more difficult.

Of course, you want to buy something unique, but it's very important not to give a gift that the happy couple is never going to use. Obscure appliances that are difficult to use (and even understand) are a bad idea--the likelihood is that they'll never make it out of the box. Your best bet is to think about the couple's likes and dislikes and try to find a gift that you know they'll appreciate.

If they're not into cooking, then an expensive set of pots and pans probably isn't one of the greatest wedding gift ideas. Consider a gift certificate to a great restaurant that you know they've never been to--it will provide them with a wonderful night out, even after they've returned from their honeymoon. There's nothing impersonal about a gift certificate if it they can tell you really made a careful choice.

Things for the home always make great wedding gifts. Your style might not always be the same as the newleyweds', however, so avoid buying artistic objects and things that might not fit their taste. Simple, useful gifts like tools, coffee machines, or silverware can fit in with any style and last for years.
