Avoid these Cliched Wedding Gifts for Your Sister
Are any gifts off-limits for your sister’s wedding? You’ll be surprised to know that they are:
A bouquet has an expiration date of just few days or about a week at max. Moreover, most of the distant relatives and guests attending your sister's wedding are going to be arriving with boquets of all shapes and sizes. A gift of flowers is a big-no for the most special day of somebody who is so dear to you! Instead of surprising her with flowers, arrange a lavish spread of breakfast for her, to a scenic location and let her build a memory that will last for years to come!
Shagun ka Lifafa
Gifting cash is not a big deal at most Indian weddings, so is this really a big no? Well, if you are helping fund one or more of the wedding functions or had decided to lift some financial burden off the family, it is definitely very thoughtful of you and something your sister will appreciate for the rest of her life. But instead of tucking away a few greens into the shagun ka lifafa, make the gift more representative of the big day in her life. You can consider gifting her a term deposit (if it's a substantial amount of money) or opening a mutual fund in your sister's name. These thoughtful gifts will soon grow to become her assets and she will always look up to you as her trustworthy sibling.
It's a gift she will keep as a memento
No matter how much you fight, bicker or laugh together, your sister will keep every little thing her family gives her at this time. Getting married, moving to a new home and starting a family of her own - these are huge changes going on in her life and she will cling to the smallest things that remind her of the family she is leaving behind. Keep all this in mind when picking a wedding gift for her and give her something she can cherish and find comfort in when she misses you.
