You can set up a romantic dinner for two at a fancy restaurant. Or if the newlyweds are wine lovers, you may want to set up the date with a wine connoisseur where they can get to learn a thing or two about wines. For adventure lovers, an afternoon of fun at a sports facility may suitable for the couple.

Tip: You may want to get to know the common interests of the couple to make their experience memorable.

Bamboo plants bring conjugal bliss between the couple according to Chinese tradition. Lavender plants bring a calming and relaxing scent into the home.

“Your credit is good, but we need cash.” This may be seen in some shops accepting cash only and not credit cards. Cash is indeed something everyone needs, especially newlywed couples who are starting a life together as husband and wife. Due to this, cash is on top of this list of wedding gift ideas for any season. Couples may use the cash to offset expenses for the wedding, including the dress, catering services, and hotel stay, among others. Some couples would even have an activity called the money dance, which is normally the first dance of the couple as newlyweds. Guests would pin money to the veil or gown of the bride or the barong tagalog (embroidered formal shirt) of the groom. Relatives of the bride and the groom would even try to outdo each other and pin bigger amounts on the gown or the barong, which is good news for the couple.

Tip: You may want to put the cash in an envelope and give it personally to the newlyweds instead of leaving on the gift table.

Some of these wedding gifts may be unconventional, but they will definitely put smiles on the faces of the newlywed couple when they receive them.
