Traditional Wedding Gifts From Groom to Bride

Traditionally, the groom gives the bride a gift on the morning following the wedding. The gift's value should be enough so that if something terrible happened to the man, his wife could sell the gift and remain financially viable for many years. A popular traditional gift was the Solje Crown Brooch, but other gifts include watches, jewellery or something for the couple's new home.

Give a Norwegian Wedding Cake

Treat the bride and groom in your life to kransekake, the traditional Norwegian wedding cake. Decorate the cake with Norwegian flags. Make the cake yourself by ordering some of the ring forms used to make the cake. These rings are found in most Scandinavian shops. If you don't want to bake the cake yourself, order some almond paste rings from a bakery and put the cake together from these rings.

Household Gifts for the Wedding Couple

Help the bride and groom to welcome visitors into their home by gifting them with an iron "Velkommen" sign to put on their doorway. If the couple enjoys baking cookies with recipes from Norway, give them a Norwegian krumkake iron and rolling cone. Purchase an iron for the couple's hob, or find an electric one that makes several krumkake cookies at one time.
