If you don't want to buy a gift from a couple's wedding registry, here are some unique ideas for the happy couple that will create lasting memories of their first year together:
Couples massage – Nothing says romance like a massage for the bride and groom. After months of stressful event planning, a couples massage may be exactly what the bride and groom needs to relax. You should purchase a gift certificate so that they can pick the perfect time to schedule their pampering.
Event tickets – Many newlyweds don't have the money to purchase tickets for special shows or concerts. Give them a gift to remember with tickets to a show picked just for them. The options are endless when it comes to finding the right event for the happy couple. AAA offers discounts with Ticketmaster, Blumenthal Performing Arts Center, Medieval Times, Pirate's Voyage and more.
Luggage – If you want to send the bride and groom off in style, consider the classic gift of luggage that they can use on their honeymoon. Luggage is something the bride and groom can use and enjoy for years. AAA members save 20 percent on the latest Samsonite products including suitcases, duffel bags and backpacks.
Restaurant and movie gift cards – As any married couple can tell you, date nights are essential for a healthy marriage. The bride and groom will relish a relaxed night out with the gift of a restaurant or movie gift card. Check out AAA for many restaurant and movie gift card discounts.
Whether you go with gift cards, luggage, event tickets or more, your gift can help the new couple start their life together. But no matter what you choose as your gift, check to see if you can get a discount with your AAA membership. Even if your gift isn't something they asked for on their registry, your gift could end up being one of their favorites.
