Weddings are one of the most marvelous occasions we witness throughout our lives – they’re always filled with joy, anticipation and lots of excitement, even if you’re not the bride. Choosing a wedding gift, however, especially if your friend or family member is one of those people, who seem to have everything they need, can be a bit tricky. As a wedding planner, I tend to see a lot of weddings – and a lot of gifts, so here’s my list of some of the best and most thoughtful wedding gifts ideas:
1. Sign the newlyweds for a class
The one thing that brings couples together is sharing – ideas, experiences and passions. And what better way to help them strengthen their bond than by helping them find their new favorite hobby? Sign them for a class you think they’ll enjoy or something they’ve never even thought about: it could be something as simple as a cooking class at a culinary school, or horse-riding lessons!
2. Custom map
Even if the bride and groom aren’t avid travellers, this custom personalized map is still one of the most romantic wedding gifts I’ve ever seen. You can buy it unframed or with a ready frame and customize it yourself, by selecting and resizing any location in the world – like the place they met or that beautiful city they got engaged in – and then just customize it with their names and the date of the wedding.
3. Subscriptions for artisan snacks
Newlyweds tend to receive a lot of cooking-related gifts: china sets, mixers and food processors are a part of every couple’s registry. If they’re food appreciators, but you want to stand out from the crowd, consider purchasing a subscription for artisan snacks or sweets on their name. Each month, they’ll receive a pack of amazing hand-made snacks they can try and enjoy together.
Hope these ideas were helpful.
