Best Wedding Gift Ideas for 2013

Ever wonder why June is the most popular month for weddings?

In medieval times, a person usually had their annual bath in May or June. Also, a June wedding meant their first child would be due in springtime. Today brides often choose a June date because of better weather and honeymoon packages.

If you’ve been invited to a wedding this month, you’re going to need a gift. Buying from the bride and groom’s wedding registry is the safest best. If that’s impossible or impractical – or already picked over because you’re shopping last minute – here are my ten best wedding gift ideas for 2013.

1.Restaurant Gift Certificates

After the honeymoon, the happy couple can enjoy a delicious date night at a local eatery.

2.Spa Towels

Give the gift of spa-quality luxury at home.

3.Road Trip Appetizer Plates by Crate and Barrel

I love this set of porcelain square appetizer plates with graphic images of six U.S. and Canadian cities.

4.Monogrammed soaps

Chunky, scented soaps spruce up a guest bathroom. Pottery Barn makes a great oval-shaped set of soaps with a personalization option.

5.10-Piece Glass Bowl Set by Williams-Sonoma

Still among the most requested bridal registry items, this glass bowl set is a must-have for any kitchen.

6.Good Together Stacking Bowls by Pigeon Toe

Cute and practical, these bowls are made to order.

7.Ravioli Mold with Roller by Williams-Sonoma

Who knew making homemade ravioli could be this simple? This makes a great gift for even a novice cook.

8.Color Tab Measuring Spoons by Anthropologie

A decorative addition to the kitchen.

9.Home Tweet Home Key Holder by ModCloth

Made from recycled materials, this adorable nest can be hung on the wall with screws or sticky squares. The sparrow keyrings are also whistles!

10.Thermal Carafe by Kaiser

The modern way to serve guests a hot beverage. This is a great gift for the bride and groom who like to entertain.

Still not sure what gift to buy? The gift of cash is always appropriate and, according to the Huffington Post, kitchen items are still among the most popular wedding gifts. So, go ahead and get that blender gift-wrapped.
