Along with many couples’ 2020 wedding plans, gifts and registries during the coronavirus pandemic may look a little different.
For decades, elaborate tableware sets for large groups and hosting accessories like serving platters were gifting staples. In more recent years, wanderlust couples created honeymoon funds, requesting guests contribute cash for adventures abroad.
But now, while party and gathering numbers are in flux, and international travel plans remain in limbo, many brides and grooms are reorganizing their wish lists to reflect their current lifestyles. In tandem, wedding guests (and invitees who can’t attend in-person) are buying presents for couples that can be enjoyed now, during quarantine.
Thankfully, there are many practical items that facilitate the celebration of matrimony, and align with social-distancing parameters and travel restrictions. Read on for the gifts pros are giving to newlyweds during lockdown.
