When you are selecting a wedding gift, try to choose something you think the couple will enjoy for years to come. Read on for the best wedding gifts that are personal, creative, and ready to be loved.
1. Custom Love Print
A personal and sentimental way to celebrate a couple’s marriage is through a custom print of a street intersection sign. The intersecting street names are each member of the couple’s last name. The block directions are pointing towards the past and future, labeled with the year they met and the year they put a ring on it. This art is a modern and subtle way to showcase this special occasion.
2. Customized Appetizer Serving Platter
Encourage the couple to throw dinner parties throughout their marriage by gifting a classic and customized charcuterie board with accompanying serving bowls and serving utensils. Add a monogram, the couple's name, or keep it simple with the wedding date. Choose a size that can fit both a simple appetizer spread or an elegant and extravagant cheese board. The couple will appreciate this for years and years to come.
3. Etched Drinking Glasses
Customizing drinkware is a classic and chic way to honor the couple’s nuptials and make every congratulatory sip of champagne feel personal and special. Etch the couple’s names on a pair of champagne flutes for them to use at the post-ceremony cocktail hour or reception. Alternatively, etch a city skyline onto a pair or set of stemless wine glasses.
This is a lovely and touching way to honor where the couple met, where they are from, or where they are getting married. Mixing and matching cities is a sentimental tribute to the geographical milestones of any relationship. This is a great way to begin a collection of unique glasses.
4. Honeymoon Excursion
Check out a travel service that allows the purchaser to choose the amount they would like to give, and then the couple will be able to choose which adventure or relaxing experience they would like to enjoy together on their honeymoon. This is a great option for couples who do not have a honeymoon registry, but really love to travel. This is a gift of a memorable experience, which is priceless in value. It’s the perfect way to kick off married life.
5. Gold Foil City Map
By giving an art print of a city map created with gold foil, you are giving a glittery golden memory that commemorates a special place in the couple's lives. There are endless options of what location to represent with your gift.
You can choose to honor the city where the couple first met, where they got engaged, where they are throwing their wedding, their honeymoon destination, or the place they will call home. This will make a special accent piece to any couple’s home.
6. Personalized Star Map
The soon-to-be-married couple’s love was written in the stars, so why not celebrate that with a personalized star map that showcases the constellation alignment on the night of the special occasion. This celestial map is a gift that they will be sure to treasure forever. You can snapshot the view from the longitude, latitude, and exact time of when and where the vows will be exchanged.
7. Chic And Dreamy Bedding
A fresh and luxurious set of sheets will always be a hit. A complete sheet set includes a flat sheet, and two pillowcases, making it a substantial gift that will positively impact a good night’s rest. Gifting a new set of fluffy down pillows will make any couple’s bed feel like they are spending the night at a fancy hotel. These gifts will ensure sweet dreams to come.
One of the most popular gifts in recent years is a weighted blanket, perfect to throw on any bed. You can choose from 15 to 20-pound blankets. Their effect is both calming and soothing, like a big, comforting hug for your body. This is perfect for anyone who has trouble falling asleep.
8. Meal Subscription Service
A meal subscription service is a perfect gift for the couple who received a lot of new kitchen equipment, but might not actually know how to use their new kitchen equipment. Gifting a meal delivery service will help even the most inexperienced chefs hone their skills and techniques. Most come with step-by-step instructions that are easy to follow.
9. Robotic Vacuum
The gift of a robotic vacuum is more than just a vacuum. It is the gift that keeps on giving. It will forever cease arguments about whose turn it is to vacuum by letting the small robot take care of business. These vacuums can run for up to 90-minute sessions and are able to clean both carpets and hardwood floors.
10. Quality Knives
Quality knives are not just easier to use. They are also safer than using dull, cheap blades to cut your ingredients. Investing in a good knife that resists corrosion and will stay sharp for years to come is a gift that is worth giving for any level of home cook. Choose from a multitude of options, from a chef’s knife, butcher’s knife, or cheese knife. No matter which way you go, you will be sure to improve the quality of their cooking experience for years to come.
