If you are attending a wedding shower for a close friend or relative and don't want to purchase the typical toaster or other small appliance as a gift, then consider giving something with a touch of humor. As long as the bride and groom have a healthy sense of humor, going against the traditional gift-giving grain will likely be a nice change when compared to the rest of the gifts in the pile.
If you don't know where to start with a humorous gift, here are four great options:
1. A Funny Game Designed for Newly-Married Couples
There are many card games and board games on the market that are designed to be played by newly-married couples. The games range from simply getting to know each other better to more racy options designed to be played in the bedroom. Choose a game based on the bride and groom's personalities and you can't go wrong.
2. A DVD of "The Newlywed Game"
The classic game show "The Newlywed Game" makes a great humorous wedding shower gift. The TV show was known for showing newlyweds just how little they knew about each other and how funny some of their answers about each other could be. The DVD will provide hours of laughs and help the couple discover what they don't know about each other during the process.
3. Customized Underwear or T-Shirts
It is simple and inexpensive to have underwear and t-shirts custom-printed for the couple. You can upload your own image of the couple or a funny saying and have it printed on just about any garment. If you don't know what image or text to use, there are an unlimited number of options available on all of the major custom printing websites.
4. A Marriage Survival Kit
Last, but certainly not least, you can make or purchase a humorous marriage survival kit. While you can always go off the creativity deep end and include items such as a local divorce attorney's business card, better options include:
- specialty tea or coffee for a caffeine emergency
- chocolate because it makes everything better
- a pregnancy test in case there's a scare after the honeymoon
- breath mints for times when one is needed before kissing
The ingredients you can include in the marriage survival kit are unlimited and the best options take the bride and groom into consideration for a more personal touch. You can also find marriage survival kits online if you are looking for an easier option.
