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.
