Trousseau packing is the specialized packaging for wedding gifts given to the bride and her to-be family including her husband. These gifts are ceremoniously given away a few days before marriage. The tradition in India is to give away articles that the new couple would need as part of their life together. The items may include a car, jewelry, bed, dressing table, clothes, Saree etc. Dowry is an illegal practice, but India marriages being deep-rooted in tradition, follow the practice of giving dowry to the groom’s family.
