When you think of wedding gifts, the first thing that comes to mind is Home Decor. Its the tried and tested category that ranks high on both usability as well as fanciness.

No matter who you gift it to, they are definitely going to love it. Importantly – make use of it.
I love Fab Furnish when it comes to buying beautiful quirky items for the home. They have a fabulous collection in everything from lighting, to kitchen and dining and much more. Items from their collection definitely make for a perfect wedding gift for any to-be married couple.
The price for Home Decor Wedding Gift items in this list range from a couple of hundreds to say 1000-1500 at max. You have some truly amazing choices in this range. Take a look…

A quilt is a useful kind of a wedding gift. Everyone needs it and there is no harm in purchasing it even though one might have multiple quilts at home. So you know that this gift will never go for a waste. Pick up some of the bright colors with bold prints to make for an ideal gifting.
I love all things unusual, and these definitely fit the kind. Why to go for the boring regular looking shot glasses, when you can have these…right? Which ones among these are your favorite?
If you think actual plants is not something you would want to gift, then a very good option is to go with decorative artificial flowers. Nowadays you get such brilliant colored artificial flowers, its actually quite tough to make out the difference whether they are real or not. You get various types in all colors and sizes and you can also get it with the pot. Place it indoors to make your house look more green and nature friendly.
A good painting can really spruce up the whole look of the room. The paintings shared here are all in the range of Rs. 900-1500. They are excellent for gifting. With vibrant colors such as these, be assured that the bride and groom will love your choice and genuinely thank you for the gift.

#13 Feng Shui
Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese philosophical system which believes in bringing positive energy to everything in its near surroundings. Every home requires a positive energy and what better way than to present a newly wed with some classic Feng Shui. The most common Feng Shui is the lucky bamboo (plant), but if you want to pick up something different, then owls, turtles or the classic Budha is also a good option.
Weddings are always auspicious. This list would be incomplete without some pious gift ideas. In Indian tradition, every new bride gets her set of pooja ki thali which she religiously uses for her daily prayers in her new home. These decorative pooja ki thalis are an excellent gift choice in the form of blessings for the bride.
Going one step ahead from the traditional pooja ki thalis, these decorative trays with boxes are beautiful pieces for any bride to have in her collection. Can be used simply for decoration as well as purpose driven.
