The typical wedding gift ideas according to New York Magazine, Brides, Harper’s Bazaar, and more, are usually the wine coolers, the latest mixer, recipe books, slow cookers, … cash? “Logging online to find your friends’ registry will soon have you coming to the realization that you’re primed to be the gifter of a random spatula, cheese grater, and three stainless steel mixing bowls,” say Harper’s Bazaar. But let’s step back for a moment, are there wedding gifts you can give your favorite couple that you will be remembered for or personally thanked for?
Logging online to find your friends’ registry will soon have you coming to the realization that you’re primed to be the gifter of a random spatula, cheese grater, and three stainless steel mixing bowls.
Take it truly personal with customized robes. A thoughtful gift for the newlyweds, his and hers robes are a plush way to pamper the couple. Since you can personalize the robes, you can keep the personalization simple with monograms, or opt for cute or clever customization, like “old ball and chain” and “the better half.”
If you know where the couple is going for the first night or for their honeymoon, sending a gift to the room would be a nice surprise. Many hotels offer special gifts, baskets, or packages that will allow you to spoil the newlyweds, like a bottle of cold Champagne and caviar cookies, or a couples’ massage by the beach.
You can also do a post-honeymoon gift by getting a “just married” package delivered to their home. Send flowers, a couple of flameless candles, and a personalized blanket for the couple to cuddle up with.
Consider a Wine Club subscription, or a cheese of the month club, which may sound, well, cheesy, but serving up a selection of gourmet fromage to your newly married friends each month will give them something to enjoy together or with friends.
There are plenty of ideas for unique wedding gifts. The couple will appreciate anything you give, even the “random spatula, cheese grater, and three stainless steel mixing bowls.” But don’t forget that there are many options to personalize a gift just from you to them on their special day.
