General Information

Couples will often provide a wedding registry to their guests, which contains gift suggestions requested by the bride and groom. Choosing a gift from the wedding registry is always a safe bet, but never feel obligated to purchasing from the registry or limited to it!


What is popular product?

Kitchen appliances, bath/spa products, home décor items


Is there anything to avoid?

Avoid gifts that do not fit the couple’s lifestyle!

Baby items are inappropriate.

Fresh fruits or flowers are a nice gesture, but don’t send those until after the honeymoon, otherwise they’ll just go to waste.


How much is appropriate?

The amount you should spend on a wedding gift depends on how well you know the couple. Family and close friends should expect to give something worth at least $150, acquaintances  can have a smaller budget (we recommend a minimum of $75)

Get Well

General Information


A thoughtful get well gift can really help cheer patients up and speed the healing process. As with any gift, consider the recipient's individual tastes to make the best impression.

What is popular product?

Books, magazines, puzzles, flowers, herbal tea and mugs, fuzzy socks or slippers, stuffed animal


Is there anything to avoid?

Do not send white flowers, as in many cultures they symbolize death.

If the recipient is in a hospital, there may be restrictions on what’s allowed in the ward – always check before sending your gift!


How much is appropriate?

Get well gift budgets can vary depending on the recipient’s condition. If it’s a minor illness, a lower budget is fine. If, on the other hand, they’re recovering from something major (e.g. a surgery), a higher budget is more appropriate.
