While marriage can be a wonderful and successful union full of love and mutual respect, making it so requires effort. Celebrate the union of a newly married couple by presenting them with a thoughtful and humorous collection of gifts that will help ensure that their marriage is a successful one. The gift recipients will appreciate the thoughtful welcome into the world of marriage.
Marriage Success Book
Give the newly married couple some help by presenting them with a marriage success book. Try the "Complete Idiots Guide to a Perfect Marriage" by Hilary Rich and Helaina Laks Kravit, or a similar humour-heavy guide to making the most of marriage. To go the extra mile, highlight some sections in the book that you feel are particularly humorous or contain tips of greater importance.
Do a little detective work, and collect an assortment of dates that are important to the newlyweds. Buy a calendar, and fill these dates. Place a note on the front of the calendar to the new groom, explaining that you have taken the liberty of writing in the important events so that he is safe from forgetting, at least for the first year.
Magic 8 Ball
A Magic 8 Ball can put an end to any argument. Buy one of these decision-making devices and include it in your marriage survival kit. Encourage the couple to turn to the all-knowing ball when they they have come to a impasse.
Sometimes surrender is necessary. Buy a white flag, or make one by stapling a white handkerchief to a stick or dowel. Tell the couple to use the flag wisely and know when it is necessary to just give up to ensure mutual harmony and continued sanity.
Carry Out Menus
This gift is particularly apt for couples in which both members work. Gather some menus from local restaurants. Bundle them together, and attach a note reading "It's my turn to make dinner?" Make the gift even more personal by taking time to highlight your favourite meals, or making humorous notes in the margins. For example, you could draw an arrow to meat loaf, and write next to the arrow. "Pre-heat oven to 176 degrees C, place in pan, tell spouse that you slaved over it all day." The newlywed couple will likely get a laugh out of the gift, and may even turn to the menus when it's time for a quick dinner.
