Shopping for wedding gifts

This comming September 2008 is a popular month for getting married especially for Chinese couple. I have a colleague invited me for her wedding early next month but unfortunately I am not able to attend. So, I intend to buy her a wedding gift instead. I seldom shop for wedding gift because when I attend the wedding dinner, I usually gave red packets as the usual Chinese custom. So, I have no idea what to buy as a wedding gift for this colleague of mine.

I had some free time during office hour lunch hour, so I decided to look for some gift ideas on the home section of a departmental store. I also had time to visit one famous wedding gift store located at the mega mall just near by my office. Since my colleague is quite young, I think I should look for a wedding gift for young couple. Bed sheets set, flatware, dinnerware and kitchen tools are among some of the ideas I am thinking of getting them.

I was also thinking of maybe buying a nice sculpture decoration as a wedding gift. I went to a gift store and saw a really nice one. It's a sculpture of an angel praying, size is just nice as I had envisioned it and it is off-white in colour. The gift is beautiful and I almost bought it but I did not because gift as such is not very practical. I prefer to go for something practical when buying gift for someone including wedding gifts. I think I will decide on getting a nice bed sheets set for my colleague's wedding. I think she'll love it. Besides, it is close to the budget that I had in mind. Also, when I have no idea on what to buy as a gift, the internet is full of gift ideas that could guide me along to choose a suitable gifts for my family and friends.
