Advice and ideas to help you with your wedding gift list

Gift Vouchers on your Wedding List

Vouchers can be a useful tool in a wedding gift list. Our aim is to help you get the best from your wedding gift list. It’s an age old joke about the 5 toasters, 7 frying pans……. Nowadays as many couples have lived together before tying the knot, contributions to more expensive items or large projects are so much more useful.


DIY vouchers – ask for wedding gift contributions towards a DIY project – a new bathroom or kitchen. Just make sure that you include on your wedding gift list which store you intend to use.


Honeymoon vouchers – your wedding gift list could include contributions towards your dream honeymoon – most leading travel companies offer a gift voucher system. You could use your wedding gift list to give guests the option to contribute towards the trip, or to pay for a particular excursion (champagne balloon flight over the Masai Mara, for example) . Have a look at the link below as an example how it works. www.thomson.co.uk/editorial/extras/holiday-vouchers.html?essential=vouchers.


Shopping vouchers – if you are undecided about what you want as a wedding gift, a good flexible idea is to ask for shopping vouchers. Most leading shopping centres offer them, and they can be used in any store displaying the ‘mastercard’ sign. You are then not tied to one store, again increasing your buying power – giving you the ability to shop around for the best deal on the high street. http://uk.westfield.com/ukcentres/ is an example of how the voucher system or store card works and how to obtain them.


Garden vouchers – most garden centres sell national garden vouchers as well as their own. These again are a flexible gift and you are not tied to a particular garden centre. An excellent idea if you are considering a large project or just want to stock up your garden. Click on the link for details http://www.thevouchergarden.co.uk.


Again you can have a mix of gift ideas and vouchers on your list, making it flexible for your guests and for you too.

Remember when including a request for vouchers, don’t forget to tell your guests what or why you want them for (it’s not that you don’t trust your guests taste in gifts!)

Happy Listing!
