Stumped on what to get a friend, co-worker, or family member for her wedding? Look no further than her Chinese Animal sign. Here are some traditional (and unique!) ideas for the perfect present.
Rat. It’s kind of a no-brainer, but a Rat gal would love some cash! It’s rude for a couple to ask for money, but it’s not rude to give it. Frugal Rat will appreciate the nod toward a comfy honeymoon or first year of marriage.
Ox. A bottle of fine wine or liquor will go over well with any Ox girl. She’ll appreciate the sentiment, especially if you include a note about how the couple can only drink it on their 5- or 10-year wedding anniversary.
Tiger. Any Tiger girl is going to marry an active guy. Gym memberships for the high-energy couple could be a great gift. If they already belong to one, how about some passes to a kickboxing or a bootcamp class? They’ll think of you every time they get their butts kicked in a workout!
Rabbit. Arts or antiques will be sure to please the Rabbit woman. The more unique and classy, the better. A Tiffany lamp, a beautiful mural, or a Persian rug are all great ideas.
Dragon. Active Dragon girl will love some yearly passes to a theme a park (hello, Disneyland!), a zoo, or some other place she loves.
Snake. The Snake girl can always use more books. How about digging up a collector’s set of her favorite author’s books? Or maybe some reads on how to handle finances, buy a home, or other topics that a newly married couple would be interested in.
Horse. Active Horse girl would love some annual passes to the local state or national parks. She can camp, hike, swim, and backpack to her heart’s content!
Sheep. Sentimental Sheep will love some nicely framed photos. Whether they’re pictures of her and her man or lovely outdoor scenes, pay for some quality frames and printing.
Monkey. With the happy-go-lucky Monkey, you can’t go wrong with a set of classic board games. Give the new couple a stash of fun party games they can play when they host dinners and events in their place.
Rooster. Practical Rooster gal would die for a paid housecleaner! What better gift to give to a new couple than someone to make their home sparkle and shine. Buy them a few months of cleanliness and you’ll be a friend for life.
Dog. Romantic Dog would love some passes to a local vineyard for a day of wine tasting and indulgence. Check out wine tours in her area and gift her the gift of drink!
Pig. With a Pig gal, you can’t go wrong with some gift certificates to a nice restaurant or two. The fancier, the better!
