Guests can be more creative when it comes to gifts for a second marriage, because the couple probably doesn’t have as great a need for practical gifts 🙈 If you are close to the bride or groom and have photos, try putting together a photo book 😊 Gift certificates for a nice dinner out are always a good idea if you know the couple’s tastes 🤓 If you do want to get them something for their home, choose something unique that they probably won’t already have, such as a personalized welcome mat with both of their names on it, or even a gift certificate to a home supply store — that way, they can make their house a home. 
These are as good as cash, so they are convenient gifts, yet a lot more thoughtful. Think of the items that the couple can use, whether for their daily lives or hobbies. Is the groom a handyman? Is the bride crafty? Do they love cooking, or are they coffee aficionados? Are they moving to a new place or relocating to another state
? Do they like to eat out or watch movies? These are things you may know, especially if you are close to them. If they have kids, a family-friendly trip to an amusement park or a restaurant can be a lovely wedding present. With almost all popular brands and retail shops offering gift cards, you will not run out of options to give the soon-to-be-married pair. (revised by Ephraim Sweet on November 2, 2021) 
A new analysis reveals many weddings are not the first one for either or both members of the couple. According to a Wall Street Journal article from Sept 20, 2011, 19 percent of marriages in 2008 were second marriages (almost 1 in 5). However, the traditional advice about wedding gifts always seems to assume that the couple is getting married for the first time and setting up their household together. Many first time couples have registries, so the strategy for gift giving is easier, though I’m do thinkingthink it’s very nice to consider going off registry and getting a creative gift
. But for second, third, or fourth marriages, gift giving is sometimes uncharted territory. (emended by Summar Driscoll on May 1, 2020) 
It’s relatively rare to find someone who doesn’t like the idea of having all of their kinks and tightness worked out by a trained professional. Even if the bride or groom
isn’t the biggest fan of massages, in most cases, buying a gift card for a spa also gives them access to a wide variety of other treatments they might be interested in. At the end of the day, everyone loves being pampered and no one is going to turn their nose up at taking time away from the hustle and bustle of wedding planning to relax their nerves.
