If you are a 90s kid, you must have seen your parent's wedding videography on VCR or DVDs. Do you remember the type of gifts your parents received on their wedding day? Well, most of the traditional wedding gifts included kitchenware like dinner sets, cutlery sets, bone china cup sets, or home decor items like lamps, bedsheets, fancy table mats, wall paintings, etc.
However, this pattern has changed in recent years. With women becoming independent and men becoming feminists, the gifts have become more about your relationship with the couple. If the couple is close to you, be it a friend or relative, the gift will be expensive and in the case of a moderate relationship, the gift will be decent. Now, let’s compare some of the traditional and modern-day wedding gifts.
TRADITIONAL WEDDING GIFTS
In the 80s and 90s, the bride’s relatives would sit and plan the gift list that would go with the bride after marriage.
Items like a double bed, dressing table, an almirah, cooler, etc. were considered the basic amenities that a bride would need to start her new life when she moves to her husband’s house. If the family is financially well to do they may also gift a dining table, sofa set, center table, washing machine, etc.
Another important thing to consider under this category is gold. It can be in any form be it jewelry, coins, reserves, etc. Technically, gold acts as a source of investment that can be used in case of emergency and hence is one of the best gifts for the bride.
Earlier relatives or friends who couldn’t afford to give something expensive, usually used to opt for kitchenware items like a dinner set, non-stick pans, etc. Kitchenware is quite popular nowadays as well but it has just upgraded itself to a microwave, dishwasher, food processor, modern cutlery set, etc.
