Hello, hope your week went well, my post for today is about gift ideas for events. As we walk into the weekend, several events will be taking place, we don’t say thank God it’s Friday for no good reason. Friday ushers in the weekend which goes along with lots of fun and events, if you are a Nigerian and especially from the west, you know the weekend is always for owanbe and parties.
Everyone loves attending events but most make it a one sided thing, where you go for the jollof rice ,drinks chops and souvenirs But takes nothing along to offer your host and hostess. A lot of people do not do this intentionally, as most people are confused on gift ideas well, thank goodness you stopped by thetoluajayievents.com today as I am about to put you out of your misery.
Below, I will be talking about gift ideas for different events that are affordable and easily accessible, Some of them, can be made by you in the comfort of your house. Let’s begin! Gift ideas for a Nigerian event.
WEDDING: Weddings are a beautiful event to attend and it’s the best time to shower the couple with gifts especially gifts that will help them start-up their lives as newlyweds. You don’t have to buy a car to do that, neither do you need to spend 100 thousand Naira to impress the couple. Here are some simple gift ideas.
* matching Ankara fabrics – They don’t cost much , the newlyweds would love matching outfits.
*Kitchen utensils-microwave, pressure cooker, blender etc.
* A cook book : little but very helpful to the new bride
* A bed set(bed sheets,pillow cases and duvet)
*home decor and Artworks.
*Mug, plates, cultleries sets- you can add a touch to them by customizing.
One thing you have to remember is that they are starting a new life, so think of what you would love to have as a gift on your wedding day or what you were given when you got married.
BRIDAL SHOWER: The peak of every wedding preparation for the bride to be. Bridal showers are meant to be fun and a way of showing the bride to be that you genuinely care about her and you are ecstatic that she is getting married. A bridal shower without gifts is not a properly planned one. I planned my friend”s bridal shower some years ago ,precisely 2015 i made sure she went back home so happy cause the shower was fun and she got lots of gifts from friends and families.
Gift ideas for a bridal shower
