    Hi all,
    There is going to be two marriages in our family this year. Can anyone suggest me what can be gifted to a sister/brother for marriage. This is the first time somebody this close (sibling) is getting married so I have no idea what to gift.

    thanks,
    pebblebeach

    Hi,
    Let me tell you what we usually follow in our family.If it is life the new couple is going to set up a new house for themselves, we discuss among ourselve and buy different things to set up the house, it could be a complete kitchen, fridge , washing machine, microwave etc.,
    If in case they already have the house and household ready, we gift them the money so that they can invest it in the way they like it. My uncle has purchased a land with all the gift money his sisters and brothers had given him.
    If they don't suit you , don't take it otherwise, just take it easy.

    Regards
    Sri

    Hi,

    YOu can get a household item, ornament. You can also gte them a honey moon package, subscribe them to a vacation time share plans os that they can go on vacations every year. Also, personalised scrap books or a collection of photos can be given as an additional gift.

    Hi,

    Gold item is my all time favorite too. As it lasts for life time. That way they will always have memory of you.

    I gave big earrings to my sis and
    A bracelet to my bhabhi (Brother's wife)

    Cheers
