What On Earth Do You Buy As A Wedding Gift?

While there is absolutely nothing wrong with sticking to the traditional wedding gifts such as money, there is also a range of quirky alternatives out there which you could explore. Here’s a few suggestions of some unique gifts for the bride and groom…

A Year of Dates

A year’s worth of date ideas is sure to keep them busy! This gift is a really fun way for the newlyweds to spend their first year of married life! It’s unique, fun, and sure to be something they appreciate as they embark on their new journey.

Framed photo

Something as simple as a framed photograph can be a much-treasured gift. It could be a picture you know the couple love, or a really old throwback picture for a giggle or two, perhaps. You can have a lot of fun trawling through all the memories with this one.

Wedding venue portrait

Websites such as Etsy make personalising gifts wonderfully simple, and you can get sentimental with these kinds of things. A bespoke portrait of the couple’s wedding venue is sure to go down a treat. It will also act as a cherished keepsake of the day and all the memories it holds for them.

Custom set of mugs

The gift could be something fun and jokey instead. Take these ‘I Do’ mugs for example. Personalise them with the couple’s names and inject that bit of humour into their day. This kind of individualised gift is also a great way to show your thoughtfulness, and how you’ve put a special touch on the gift.

Commemorative cushion

A commemorative reminder of their special day, a cushion could be a great addition to the home of the newlyweds. Cosy and comforting, what’s not to love about a cushion? This infinity love knot cushion is an even bigger celebration of their love and can be customised to fit the recipients.

Lend a hand

This could potentially be the most valuable gift of all! Any help and support you can offer on the day, or in the lead-up, is sure to be hugely appreciated by the bride and groom. Whether it’s child-duties during the ceremony, or your talent for photography, there are so many ways you can lend a hand and ease a bit of that wedding-planning stress.

No matter what gift you go for, it’s sure to be valued because it has come from you. Think about everything you know about the couple, their personalities, and you won’t go far wrong. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself to find the perfect gift though, as often, most couples won’t be worried about the gift you buy for them. They will care that you’ve been a special part of their day.
