Choosing the Best Gifts
|For this reason, and especially if they are close friends, you could ask them what kind of color-scheme they will have and if they prefer a certain theme, such as Victorian, modern, or tropical. |
Armed with this information, one of the most useful and original gifts that you could give the couple is an area rug.
Area rugs come in a variety of colors, textures, and designs and they are not the standard wedding present by any means, yet the right designs of area rugs in a home can make or break the overall look.
Then you should think which room may benefit the most from your gift.
For example, if you want to give the happy couple a rug for their bedroom, you could choose from a variety of beautiful thick area shag rugs. Shag rugs were very popular in the 1960s, and they have now made a comeback. Putting your toes onto a soft shag rug the moment you get out of bed in the morning is a romantic, satisfying experience.
|These beautiful rugs come in a variety of colors. Depending on the style of the couple’s bedroom furniture, an elegant burgundy may be stunning, or a lighter, pale brown may do the job.|
On the other hand, if you are not privy to which bedroom furniture the couple wishes to use, you could play it safe and buy them a neutral color such as beige, gray, or cream. Either way, a lovely shag rug puts the finishing touches to any bedroom, adding to the romantic atmosphere.
Perhaps you are a less romantic type, however, and you would like to help the couple to create a beautiful bathroom.
The perfect bathroom is clean, with unstained tiles and color coordinating fittings, but once again the finishing touch has to be the rug that you step on as you get out of the shower or bath.
As most newlyweds don’t want to be burdened by heavy cleaning expenses and also need a rug that will stay looking good after many uses, acrylic area rugs are probably your best bet. Once again, you should try to match the color to the bathroom decor.
Area rugs are a definite must when thinking of home decorating – whether in your own home or for a friend. Keep these rugs in mind when you are looking for the perfect wedding gift. The young couple is sure to thank you for adding that perfect touch to their new home.
