Top Wedding Gifts of 2009

Wedding season, along with spring, is upon us. Happy couples are getting ready to say their vows in front of friends and family, planning their last minute details, all while you wander the aisles of stores like Bed, Bath and Beyond scratching your head at the endless list of wedding gifts. So what do you get a couple this year when you are faced with a gift registry list that it hundreds of items long?

One fun and different idea will take you away from the traditional housewares gifts and into something a little more outdoorsey. If you know the couple loves entertaining in their home but has yet to delve into a backyard set up, try to find them gifts that will make outdoor entertaining and BBQ’ing a breeze. Grill tool sets, some patio furniture or even a grill itself can be wonderful ways to help the married couple to be have people over for evenings of great food and company.

If you know the couple enjoys thinking outside of themselves and their own needs and has a soft spot for philanthropic endeavors, consider donating to charities in their names. Think on what is most meaningful to them: Do they have a great affinity for animals, or have a strong desire to help address poverty in the world? Donating to an organization like the World Wildlife Fund or Action Against Hunger in their names can be a very personal and thoughtful gift.

Many couples don’t think to put things like food and wine on their gift registries, getting blinded by the endless choices of table linens and silverware. Enlist a food and wine savvy friend or simply enlist the help of a store clerk and visit a high end or specialty food and wine store. They can give you ideas as to what foods are in season right now, what to cook them with and which wines are special and celebratory. Be sure to include a note about whatever you end up choosing and perhaps even a recipe it can be made with.
