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.
