Many guests who have been invited to a wedding, wedding shower or any of the other pre-wedding celebrations may often be faced with the same feelings of not knowing what to bye. Not knowing what to provide as a gift is a common feeling that most guests feel when they are invited to an event.

We often wonder whether the gift we have in mind is sufficient, or enough for the type of occasion we are planning to attend. In many cases there are guidelines to gift giving and the level of appropriateness it will be good for. Do not allow yourself however to get all worked up over this feeling, as stated before this is a common feeling and it is felt by many.

Some of the guidelines included are for appropriate gifts for a special occasion and may include small things like giving a gift of lingerie as a wedding gift. This type of gift is very suitable for bridal showers or bachelorette parties but would not be for the wedding itself. Some cultures also have certain guidelines in which they may follow for gift giving. Many cultures practice giving monitory gifts at weddings only, and gifts to be given only at the bridal shower or engagement party.
If you are looking for some ideas on what to give as a gift for any of these occasions, here we have put together a list of some helpful ideas on things that will be needed when a couple is first starting out. Some couples may provide the convenience of a gift registry for their event guests. This would be one of the first places to start looking for gifts that the couple will need and had selected personally. 
Buying gifts from a registry is always the safest way of ensuring your gift will be needed by the couple. However, if a gift registry is not available for the function you are about to attend or if you would just prefer to select your own special gift, here are some handy ideas on items the couple may need in starting out, they are great gift ideas and hopefully they will inspire you to select a gift that you will feel comfortable giving.
