By Beattie Sharona

Summer is the traditional wedding season so you should start thinking about buying wedding gifts ahead of those special events.

Choosing a wedding gift can be an unexpected source of anxiety. You want to choose wedding presents that will be cherished by the receiving newly-weds after all.

Some people choose a present that will be a memory of the wedding day itself. Others choose a more practical wedding gift, sometimes via a wedding gift list the couple have prepared in advance.

The internet has become a source of inspired wedding gifts. You do not have to trail around busy shops looking for that ideal present. Instead you can search online in the comfort of your own home.

One very popular trend is for personalized wedding gifts. These let the giver make a present truly unique by engraving dates, names or even a message on to a suitable item. Engraved gifts make a memorable wedding present.

Finding the perfect gift to fit your budget isn't as hard as you think it is. Use the following ideas to inspire you to select a wonderful personalized wedding gift to remember..

1. Pictures - A popular choice is to personalize a picture with a message - designs include cartoons of the bride and groom, wedding cars, or the place of marriage. These make a lovely keepsake of the wedding day itself.

2. Photoframes - Two ideas follow - both using personalized photo frames. One idea is to inscribe the photoframe with the wedding date or couple's names. The other is to add a wedding photograph of the happy couple inside and give it to them after the wedding.

3. Wedding Baubles - One thoughtful idea is to buy a personalized bauble for the couple's Christmas tree. These decorations are made usually from china or glass and engraved with names and the wedding date, making a lovely gift, appearing each year and placed on the tree as a wonderful reminder of the special day.

4. Memento Boxes - Weddings create many mementos - from the invitations, orders of service to notes and cards from well-wishers. A keepsake box is perfect to store away all these precious mementos and keep the memories safe!

5. Pillowcases - This is a fun wedding present which modern couples will love. Matching Egyptian cotton pillowcases. One nice idea is each pillowcase carrying one half of a design, so completing the picture when they are placed together on a bed. Another is one pillowcase embroidered with "Mrs" and the other with "Mr."

Shopping for wedding presents should be fun. If you choose a personalized wedding gift, then you are giving something that is truly special and unique, and one which you can choose in keeping within your budget.
