“Bless This Home” Wall Plaque

If you are fortunate enough to have the pleasure of attending a summer wedding this year, be thankful.

The weather is usually the least of a wedding guest’s worries, of course. Coming up with a gift that really means something to the couple is much tougher than choosing wedding attire that will work whether the sun is blazing or the breeze is blowing. Many modern blogs on the subject assume that newlyweds will be wowed by luxury items, large cash envelopes, or one-of-a-kind giftings. But for the sincere Christian couple, online Christian stores offer presents that appeal to their faith, are distinctive and are cost-friendly as well.

If the new couple will have a yard, no matter how small, it can be a nice idea to give them something for their outdoor space. You can find handsome garden stones and statuary with simple words like “Bless This House” that never go out of fashion. Catholic couples might enjoy a St Francis bird bath. St Francis was an amazing 12th century Christian who was so enraptured by the gospel that he shared it with everyone – supposedly even small animals and birds!

Newly-married couples will be setting up house together and what better expression of your support than the gift of a doorknocker? Especially one that bears the famous words of Joshua 24:15 As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Great verses like these can also be purchased as wall art for inside the home. If you prefer the
subtler approach, online Christian stores typically stock a wide array of attractive resin plaques that rest on easels with faith-encouraging messages like Preach the Gospel at all times; use words if necessary.

Most Christian couples would be grateful to receive gifts that help them celebrate important holidays like Christmas too. Nativity sets make unique and treasured gifts for the bride and groom. You can find crèches in all sorts of sizes and styles, some large enough for a mantle or placing under the tree, others ideal for gracing the center of a dining table.

One last suggestion is to order some personalized stationary for the couple. They will have a lot of thank you notes to mail out and, let’s face it, there is a certain charm about seeing your names linked together and officially printed on your own stationary.

Many of these gift ideas and plenty of others can be found at The Printery House. You might take a few minutes and check them out our products to find something the bride and groom will love. Oh, and in terms of the weather, you might consider dressing
for hot weather but bringing along a pretty shawl or sweater, just in case. Men, you’re on your own.

Catholic Gift Stores Provide Unique Wedding Gifts

blesshomeWhen you believe in a couple and you believe in their union, the gift is more than just a quick stop at a big-chain store.

The customs associated with modern weddings have certainly undergone some changes, but what never changes is the joyful wishes guests want to convey to the happy couple.  If the couple is Catholic, then Catholic gift stores could provide you with the kind of unique wedding gifts that express those joyful wishes loud and clear.

For many years brides and grooms have used bridal registries to help guests select an appropriate wedding gift. It can be helpful to remember that registries are simply gift suggestions. Wedding experts now say that the trend is moving away from gift registries. Couples are marrying later, and often already have many of the basic necessities needed to establish a ‘house’.

But even if the bride and groom are very young and setting up house for the very first time, sometimes it can feel a bit impersonal to purchase a gift from a list of suggestions. More and more often wedding attendees are choosing to give gifts with an individual stamp. And when the new couple is Catholic, gifts that reflect and support their faith are coming into vogue.

Rather than the conventional electric mixer or knife block, young Catholic couples may be happy to receive gifts that they can use to solidify their grounding as a union of faith. A new family Bible, for example, may not make it on any gift registry, but is a gift that provides blessing each day for years to come. Catholic gift stores offer wedding edition Bibles, study Bibles and even gift-appropriate illuminated Bibles.

While young couples often think about having enough bath towels for company or enough coasters for dinner guests, they may not think about how Christian art can contribute to the faith-filled environment they want their home to be. Wedding guests don’t need to buy major art pieces, but wall crosses or small, framed Bible verses can help cover blank walls in the home with the promise of God’s favor.

Finally, for years it was customary to give newlyweds gifts that only saw occasional use. China and silver patterns were chosen by the couple with great care, even though those items were put to use one or two times a year at best. Why not give them a crèche instead? Brides and grooms may little think in June how welcome Christmas decorations will be in December, but when the holidays roll around they will be excited to actually be prepared. Advent candles and Lenten supplies are other ways to help new couples establish a joint life of faith.

Catholic gift stores offer all sorts of personal gift options that are off the beaten path. Online stores like The Printery House make it easy to shop for unique weddin presents. Remember that it is still customary to send gifts to the bride’s (or new couple’s) address two weeks before the big day, so don’t wait too long before getting your summer wedding gifts.
