Gothic Wedding Gifts

So your favourite gothic couple is getting married. You may be wondering what type of gift would be appropriate for the wedding. Certainly flowery china or bright yellow lingerie won't do. It is important to think about this particular couple's style of goth.

Some prefer the more elegant touch, such as dark roses or black, Victorian-style drapes. Others lean toward the more morbid style of goth, such as skulls and crosses. Taking a good look at what your friends prefer will help make a decision on what to get them for their wedding.

Incense Burners

If your friends are into the goth scene, there is a good chance that they will have a fondness for incense. Choose a burner that will go well with their home decor and pick out some nice incense to go along with it. You may want to make sure that neither the bride nor groom is allergic to incense first.

Black Candles

Black candles can be hard to find, but they would make a nice romantic addition to the couple's home or for use on the honeymoon. Tie them with an elegant black ribbon for an even classier look. You might consider putting them in a gift basket with a bottle of champagne.

Tickets to the Rocky Horror Picture Show

Every newlywed couple enjoys the opportunity to go on a date that they don't have to pay for. The Rocky Horror Picture show has gained a cult following over the years and is a popular entertainment venue on the goth scene. If frequent showings are available in your area, this could be a fun date for the couple.

Black Towels

If you want something more on the practical side, consider going with black bath towels, hand towels and wash cloths. It may seem like a simple gift at first, but it is something that you can never get enough of and the couple is sure to appreciate it. Make sure to get high-quality towels.

Black Bedding

A newlywed couple always appreciates having nice bedding to use. There are many styles available that will fit a gothic lifestyle. Just remember to think dark.
