If you’ve been invited to a wedding this season, it can be difficult to know what to buy as the perfect gift for the happy couple. This is even more tricky if the pair haven’t put any information in their invitation about what they would like to be given. However, there’s no need for dismay! There are some really great gifts that you can give to every kind of couple to commemorate their big day if you use your creativity.
Even when couples have lived together for years, it’s still traditional and useful to give them a present for their home. While they probably already have the classics like the toaster for breakfast, there are lots of special marital home gifts which will be used for decades to come as a happy memory of the occasion. Here are a few of the best.
A Wedding Crate
You can present the happy couple with a gorgeous personalized wedding crate in a choice of beautiful colors. Either pack it with useful other items for their home or give it as a standalone gift, offering useful storage for many years to come.
Give your friends a unique and fun wedding gift that is also very practical – a pair of Mr & Mrs pillowcases made from high quality silk and available in a choice of colors would be a great choice for any newlyweds and you can even put a secret message of your own on the pillow’s reverse side for a more personal touch.
A practical gift which also helps the pair to remember their happy day fondly, some personalized glasses are the ideal choice of wedding gift. Choose your message for the couple and have it engraved in some high quality wine, gin or brandy glasses.
If the newlyweds are keen foodies, why not buy them an engraved slate chopping board with their wedding date and name? It’s the ideal romantic yet useful reminder of their special occasion.
There are some unusual map gift ideas which any newly married couple would love. You can have a map print made of a place which is special to the pair – perhaps the place they met, the place they married or even the place they plan to visit on honeymoon. When presented in a decorative frame, this will hang in pride of place for many years to come.
Personalized Wine Decanters
A wine decanter is a really useful gift which will be brought out every time the couple entertain friends or family at a special meal. A personalized decanter is an even more special gift for a wedding, with the initials of the pair etched into the glass.
Give the couple a beautifully sentimental gift which will last a lifetime in the form of a wedding keepsake box. Personalized with their names and the details of their happy day, this box will be the ideal place to keep reminders of the occasion, from their wedding album to the bridal veil.
Something Completely Different?
If the wedding couple have a more unusual approach to life or really don’t need anything more for their marital home, why not give them something that they can enjoy as a pair rather than something physical? Gift experiences are rising in popularity at the moment and they’re a great way to help the couple begin married life in the right way. Why not treat the happy couple to a romantic country getaway? A weekend in a B&B or hotel in the country is a great way to start off their married life and they’re sure to appreciate your generosity. Alternatively, what about a champagne balloon ride, or maybe a cookery experience that they can enjoy together and form memories that will last a lifetime?
Feel free to be as creative as you like when your loved ones are tying the knot. The more unusual the gift, the better in most cases, and you can be sure that, no matter which gift you choose for the happy couple, they’re definitely going to love whatever you come up with as long as it’s chosen with love.
