Top 11 Personalized Wedding Gifts This Season
Make gifting more intimate by adding a touch of personalization. Here are our favorites.
Weddings are all about sharing, giving and receiving – love and laughter, compliments and courtesy, memories and promises. And let’s never forget that all these wonderful feelings and emotions are symbolized in the gifts we give one another.
But the days when shining gold coins and fat envelopes full of currency made their way to bank lockers and safe vaults, are over. Those impersonal even if generous gifts lost their charm on their way to our generation.
So WeddingSutra would like to bring you contemporary inspiration – not only are these redolent with every deep emotion you want to convey, they’ll also see a lot more light and gleam with the pleasure of a personal touch.
Here are our top 11 picks.
1. The Gift of Uniqueness
