Support a content creator, share this article :)

I’m happy with how things turned out in the end, but the thing about having your wedding reception cancelled due to the pandemic is I never got closure for some wedding-related research I did.

So I’m just going to use my own blog to brain-dump 2 sets of lists:

  • Part 1: Wedding gift ideas (for newlyweds), and
  • Part 2: Wedding door gift ideas (for the guests)

I had fun compiling them and while I didn’t get the chance to use the info, hopefully it’ll help in your wedding prep instead of forgotten forever 🙂

Part 1: Wedding Gift Malaysia – Wedding Gift Ideas for the Newlyweds

These wedding gifts for the newlyweds are divided under the following subcategories:

  1. Can’t-go-wrong wedding gift
  2. Kitchen items
  3. Kitchen appliances
  4. Electronics
  5. Bedroom/ living room/ toilet

Let’s start with..

#1 – Can’t-go-wrong wedding gift:

  1. Money (for honeymoon, house downpayment etc)
  2. Gold (bar/ coin/ jewelry) (admittedly very expensive but I did say can’t go wrong with this gift)
  3. Gift cards and vouchers – you can find AEON cash voucher, IKEA gift cards, even hotel vouchers and grocery store cash vouchers at Giftr.my

If you honestly don’t know what’s to give, money or a gift card in a pretty angpow plus a note is a great wedding gift for Malaysians, especially in this economy. You can put a nice message like ‘towards your honeymoon’ or ‘for your new life together’ or ‘have a wonderful dinner date on me’ or something thoughtful like that.
