    A gift that I have recently given newlyweds is something monogrammed that they can use in their new apartment or home. Every couple so far has appreciated this personalized with great enthusiasm. Monogrammed pillow shams to go on their new bed or a monogrammed Euro pillow for their living room are just perfect. This kind of gift is something they will always treasure. I recommend this Etsy shop for many great wedding gift ideas.
