Gift Options for the Newly Married Couple

If you’re shopping for a couple that’s just been married, you’ll know that every gift will be a little bit different. For one thing, their tastes might be different. They might have different hobbies or interests than you do. Or they might have different families to buy gifts for.

Gift options can also be quite different depending on your budget and what’s important to the newlyweds. You can spend a little or a lot, depending on how much you want to give them as a wedding gift.

Here are some of the best wedding gift ideas that you’ll find below:

A Couple’s Scrapbook

A homemade gift is always a nice way to show someone how much you care. For this particular gift, all you need is a scrapbook and photos from throughout the years that you’ve known them. This doesn’t necessarily have to be limited to pictures of just the two of them but could include photos of their family, friends, and moments they’ve shared with those closest to them. It’s important, though, not to include too many people in each photo; otherwise, it can become overwhelming and confusing for the couple when they look through it all later on!

Money Is Always Appreciated

From buying their first home together to paying for the honeymoon, newlyweds are bound to have financial obligations. Giving them money or a gift card is always appreciated and will give them some much-needed flexibility with their finances. A gift card to one of their favorite restaurants or stores is also a good idea because it will give them something fun to do together.

Bed Linen

Yet another gift to add to someone’s furnishing are bedding sets. Like we said before, newlywed couples will not appreciate these kinds of pretty gifts, as they’re helpful for them for starting a new life. You can add a set of matching quilts and blankets too. How simply, this common gift becomes so special for the couple.

For Those Who Like To Cook

Many newlyweds are just starting out on their own or perhaps moving into their first home together. If this is the case for your favorite couple, consider giving them something that will help them set up their new home. For example, you could give them a set of kitchenware, like a non-stick cookware set.

Coffee mug

This personalized coffee mug set is sure to make any coffee lover happy on their special day! What better way to start your morning than with your favorite cup of joy?

Terrarium kit

If you love the outdoors but don’t want to deal with the maintenance that comes with having a garden at home, consider giving your friends or family members a terrarium kit instead! Terrariums make wonderful gifts for anyone who enjoys spending time outside – even if they don’t know much about gardening yet! Whether you’re looking for something small enough to fit on.

Wedding Day Candle

A candle meant to evoke wedding day memories will create a sense of nostalgia for any pair of newlyweds. With notes of sea salt, jasmine, wood, and cream, this soy wax candle promises a calm feel. Its minimalist aesthetic also means it’ll easily blend in with any home decor.

There are countless gifts that one can give to a newly wedded couple. The key lies in knowing the couple’s personalities and interests. One may want to give a gift that allows the married couple to start their new incarnation together, while others may prefer to contribute towards making the newlywed’s lives more comfortable or luxurious. Regardless of your preferred choice, however, it is best to choose wisely, as a nice gift will rev up their passion for each other for years to come.

Decorating the house for Diwali is a family affair that brings everyone together in good spirits to start energizing the house with positive vibes. So let’s start getting excited from the anticipation of celebrating this wonderful festival of lights called Diwali by finding ideas and inspiration to decorate the house.

The elegant chandeliers light up the whole living room with an air of sophistication and celebration. There’s no better way to celebrate Diwali than with lights galore.

Light up the garden

The garden will welcome guests into your home, so it is important that the garden has an inviting feel to it. Lighting up the garden will give the whole house a welcoming glow too. 

There are various ways one can light up the garden for festivities. Traditionally, for Diwali, diyas or oil lamps are usually used to line the path of the entrance to the house. You can also use candles or battery-charged lamps, electrical lamps, and solar-powered lamps.

Add traditional Indian decor

Traditional Indian decor creates a suitable vibe for one of the major festivals in India. The antique brass turtle oil lamps pictured here is a great way to add something authentically Indian to your home this Diwali. Turtles are considered auspicious in Indian culture, and the rustic style of the oil lamp with its dainty bells and the brass used is typically Indian as well. 

Decorate with colorful cushions

Another simple yet effective way of decorating the house for Diwali is to throw in a few colorful cushions. This will add a splash of color to liven up the house and set a cheerful mood for the occasion. It will also keep guests comfy. 

The colorful cushions pictured here feature pop art style designs in vibrant colors with an Indian theme to it. The funky designs are sure to attract attention to them and add some modern edge to a traditional festival. 

Beautify with flowers

A simple and age-old way of beautifying the house is with flowers. Flowers create a positive vibe in the house whether they are fake or real. Flowers together with an elegant vase can make a world of difference in enhancing the beauty of a space. The white enameled brass flower vase pictured here has lovely designs that are reminiscent of peacocks dancing in the rain. 

Make the house smell good

Finally, make the house smell good with aromatherapy candles, incense, room sprays, and diffusers. Smell has a very strong link to memory, so create good, strong memories this Diwali with scented candles and a range of other fragrances. Decorating the house is not only about stimulating our visual senses, but also our sense of smell. 

Prepare the pooja room

Preparing the pooja room is an important part of anticipating the festival of Diwali. Give your pooja room or pooja area a fresh look this Diwali by adding contemporary lights and a splash of color with wall stickers. Of course don’t forget fresh flowers and oil lamps for the pooja room. 

Place a speaker in the pooja room where you can play devotional songs or relaxing meditative chants to enhance the serene vibe and atmosphere in the pooja room. 

How to choose the perfect Cotton bedsheet?

A Cotton bedsheet is a flat-woven textile that is used on a bed between the occupant of a bed and the warm blanket above. It is generally a rectangle of broadloom fabric, meaning it is made without a center seam. Bedsheets have hems at the top and bottom. The selvages or finished edges of the woven sheet as it is made on the loom are used as side seams and thus there is no need for hemming on the sides. Today, the bedsheet comes as part of a set of bed linens that match in color, fabric, and detail and includes the fitted sheet (to cover the mattress), the flat sheet, and at least one pillowcase.
Choosing a bedsheet design from florals to traditional motifs to solid colors to Jaipuri patterns, bedsheets are available in several prints, designs, and colors.

One of the most important factors in choosing a bed sheet will be the ambiance of the room. If you have plain walls and floors then a bed sheet will give you a lot of scopes to experiment with colors and designs thus adding vibrancy and life to an otherwise staid room.


What kind of fabric

These days a lot of fabrics are available in bedsheets starting right from the all-time basic favorite cotton to poly cotton to polyester to various blends, weaves and GSM (weight i.e. grams per square meter) or TC (thread count), In our context a bedsheet with anything over a 110 TC is good to be used. Typically, 100% cotton bed sheets with a thread count between 180-250 are best suited for the summer months as they are soft and considered of good quality.


Cotton bed sheets are best suited for a climate like ours. They are slightly more expensive than the poly cotton or polyester versions but are unbeatable in comfort and durability. A poly-cotton bed sheet is cheaper than its cotton counterpart generally but over a while, there will be problems of pilling and color inconsistency due to the inherent differences in characteristics of polyester and cotton.


Weave Types

Usually, the fabric weave and the manufacturing processes used won’t be a big factor in your decision; often they don’t even appear on the packaging. But there are a few terms you should know:

  • Sateen is a cotton cloth made with a satin weave, a weave that produces a very soft, lustrous feel but can be somewhat less durable than a tighter weave.
  • Percale is the crisp, durable plain weave fabric typically used for sheets; it has a thread count of at least 180.
  • Combed cotton has been combed to remove the short fibers and leave the long ones, which makes for a strong, soft fabric.

Breathability

Bed linen is either printed or dyed. This makes it important to check whether the process is chemical-free and the bed linen is good for your skin. The material and weave of the fabric also determine how breathable it is i.e. whether it remains cool or heats up against your skin.

Bedroom decor

you feel that your bedroom decor is letting you down and not looking like the imposing, striking room you would like it to be, maybe you are making one of these 4 mistakes that are common but easily fixed.
 
 
 
Bedroom Decor Mistake #1: It’s Loud In Here
Bold colors like reds, yellows or oranges can be too intense and high energy for the bedroom. You want your bedroom to be striking, even dramatic but you don’t want it to keep you awake.
If you are not a fan of blue or gray look at earth or neutral tones to create a perfect, peaceful bedroom space.
 
 
Bedroom Decor Mistake #2: Symmetry and Balance
The traditional two side tables and a bed in the middle layout is a common mistake. This arrangement, with all the furniture against one wall, makes the room feel lopsided.
The other side of the bedroom feels vacant, empty and a even redundant. Instead, create a sense of balance. Add additional furniture, a reading nook, seating area or a mirror will help to balance your room.
 
Bedroom Decor Mistake #3: Oops! No Privacy
Uncovered windows might tell you when the sun is rising, but everyone in the neighborhood will have an uninterrupted view into your bedrooms.
 
Bedroom Decor Mistake #4: Creating a Sleep Space Not a Relaxing Space
With all your other decorating priorities, the bedroom can become a place to sleep, store clothes and nothing else. You would rarely spend more time in there than you need to, because it’s not built for relaxation. In 2019, this approach is all wrong.More than Sleeping, reading nook and window treatments- Source – Roomade
 
Bedroom Decor Mistake #5: Ultra Bright Lights
Bedrooms often have glaring ultra bright lights or not enough lighting to complete tasks. Bright lights are great for doing tasks, but they are not so great for helping you to fall asleep.If your lights are too bright, change bulbs from bright white light, to softer light.
Adding beside and standing lamps spread light around the room and make it the relaxing retreat you want and need it to be.
