Wedding nights are special. The crowds have cleared, and it's just the two of you alone at the beginning of married life together. Whether you're feeling exhausted, horny, buzzed or some other emotion, you owe it to yourselves to make your wedding night especially memorable. One way to do that is to present a surprise to delight your new spouse.

The best and most romantic wedding night gifts are ones that reflect deep knowledge of the recipient and what would delight him or her.

The gift you select needn't be large nor expensive. Considering the excitement and expense of the wedding, this truly is an instance where it's the thought that counts.  How much should you spend on a wedding night gift? After the wedding and all the attendant expenses, you may not feel flush. In that case, a heartfelt card or handwritten love poem thanking your partner for bringing you such happiness will please your new spouse.

Or perhaps you've set aside some cash to delight your new spouse after the wedding and want to wow him or her. Free and other ideas for bliss on a pillow follow:
