It’s common today for couples to live together before marriage. Many couples already own a home – and most of the things they need for their home – before they even get engaged. But what about those who do still get married early? It can be hard to find the right gifts but Half Price Drapes has some unique ideas for you.
Buy them things they’ll need for their kitchen
They’re likely to register for plates, silverware, etc. – essentially, the basics they’ll think of. But what about those less frequently used items that they may not think of? For example, do they need cookie sheets? What about casserole dishes? Perhaps a cheese grater, coffee grinder, or hand mixer. These are all handy things to have that they may not have money for as they begin their lives together.
Help them cover their windows
If there’s one thing that helps an apartment or a home look homier, it’s lovely window coverings. You could buy them sheer curtains to help make their bedroom more romantic, or cellular shades to help improve their home’s energy efficiency. Half Price Drapes has a ton of options that can help you find exactly what you want.
Find their first piece of art
Young couples are typically concerned with getting the necessities. They may be able to splurge once in a while, but it will likely be years until they can afford to splurge on something like a nice piece of art. This doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg either – simply find a local artist, or even visit a second-hand store. You can find something unique and to their style that will be with them for the rest of their lives.
Gift them with things to entertain
Young couples are more likely than older couples to entertain. As a result, you may want to gift them with some fancy entertaining items, such as a platter for appetizers, a bar cart with unique glasses, or even martini shakers. You could find games for them to play with their guests, or a few cookbooks to make small plates for friends. Helping them learn how to entertain is yet another way you can help get them off to the right start.These are just a few ideas. At Half Price Drapes, we offer a wide range of decorating options.
