10 Traditional Wedding Gifts from Around the World

10 Traditional Weddings Gifts from Around the World

No matter where you are in the world, weddings are always something to celebrate. While there are numerous wedding traditions out there, giving a gift is universal. If you are making an appearance at a wedding, plan to bring them a gift to celebrate their new life together as newlyweds.


As the US is well-known for going over the top with gift-giving and piling up registries for wedding events, other countries don’t always have the same traditions. The idea of handing a loved one a gift that has meaning behind it can be so much more memorable than handing over money or a gift card. Why not incorporate wedding gift traditions from around the world while doing so?


For instance, Sudan women wear perfume to signal to men they are taken. Gifting a nice bottle of perfume to bring this tradition to light can spruce up the room as well as add to their amazing perfume collection. 


The old French, for another example, would bring a trunk of expensive lingerie or linen. While this custom is no longer commonplace, the act of giving vintage linens is still considered a classic cash alternative. You can gift brand new linens or ornate vintage sheets that are already soft from years of use.
