My cousin and his new wife couldn’t afford a honeymoon (they’ve just had a baby), so we all clubbed together and bought them FlightCentre vouchers. They were literally tearful when they received the gift and were then able to plan their trip. Really recommmend clubbing together to get something special like this, rather than buying lots of toasters.
As a Wedding gift to my wife I hired a cleaner to visit every two weeks for two hours. I want to be clear – this wasn’t me being sexist or making any comments on how good she is at cleaning! I got this gift so that she can enjoy more spare time and I know how much she likes it when the house is clean. I also enjoyed not having to push the vacuum cleaner round as often!
