Hello All,

This is the toughest part of a wedding when it comes to gifts. I got a close family friend's wedding coming up in the next few weeks.

Sadly I'm going through a crunch i need to know whether is there any good option for a gift in a price range of Rs. 2000.

I've thought about a juicer-mixer-grinder or maybe an OTG................anyone out there pleeeeeeeeez help.

Hi Farha,

if I were at your place I would give either the money or a gift voucher to buy the gift of their choice instead of buying something that might be a duplicate gift or something out of interest or use to the couple.

Incase you are still insist in buying a gift then...can recommend some things that will stay and remembered for long.

a. Digital Photoframe or Collage of Photos with a set photo of yours ;-)
b. Cook Books (International incase you know their tastes)
c. Voucher for buying books/Music.
d. Voucher for buying any other stuff.

I cant think of more....I guess above choices are good enough for INR 2K

Enjoy the Indian Wedding...

Just give the money. They can buy their own gift

its a male or female friend ??

If its a male one, a soda Maker will be apt.

if its a female one give a small makeup case.

Hi Farha,

What Vikas has suggested makes lots of sense.

If you are travelling to India from abroad, you can bring any souvenir that will be appreciated.

Now a days appliances or utlity things are not given normally by friends as gift for marriage.

Cheers :)
