A wedding is a wonderful opportunity to help friends or family launch a new life together. You may know the couple well or hardly at all, but you certainly don't want to purchase a gift that will spend the rest of its days at the back of a closet. The gifts on this page are what wedding gifts should be: skillfully made, beautiful to look at, and designed to be used every day. It's often easy to pick an expensive item and consider the job done, but how much nicer to pick a thoughtful item that becomes a cherished possession in a new household.
