Surely, all of us have asked ourselves this question at least once in a lifetime, “What wedding gift should I buy for the newlywed couple?” and almost always, we come up with answers such as a showpiece or photo frame. But let’s be honest, such gifts are rarely useful to anyone. So why not come up with gift ideas that are closer to their hearts and practical at the same time? And don’t worry, because we’ve got you covered.
1. Luggage bags and tags
A set of luggage bags is a perfect gift for the couple. Kick off the newlywed’s honeymoon trip with personalized matching leather, hand-crafted luggage tags that are truly timeless. For an added touch, you can also get their wedding date inscribed.
2. Cookbook set
For the couple that loves cooking together and spends lots of time in the kitchen, an iconic cookbook set is a creative wedding gift idea that’s extremely useful and also looks great on the shelf. At the same time, if the couple is not used to cooking, a cookbook can come in handy for a dinner date at home for the newlyweds.
Who wouldn’t love to receive a matching set of soft robes as a pampering wedding gift? These would be perfect for the couple to wrap themselves in on a lazy Sunday morning. A set of fresh towels and matching slippers is something anyone will appreciate. Get these monogrammed and ta-da! Your gift is personalized!
4. Bath kit
A relaxing bath after a hectic day is more than anyone could ask for. Gift the couple a bath kit and include items like bath bombs, shampoo, conditioner, bath salts, body scrubs, body oil, body butter, etc. to unwind and spend some quality time together.
5. Photo Album
Surprise the newlyweds with a photo printed on premium archival paper that’s then framed in a leek, minimalistic frame. They can either hang this on their wall or keep it on their bedside table. You can also create an entire wedding album with pictures of the couple from before the wedding and add small notes or comments with every picture.
This will, for sure, be a one-of-a-kind gift. You can hire an artist to make a painting of the couple by either using their picture or asking them to pose in front of the painter.
7. A custom wedding illustration
If not a painting, you can hire a graphic designer to make an illustration of the couple’s wedding picture. You can also add the names of the bride & groom and their wedding date. Get the illustration framed and your perfect wedding gift is ready.
8. House plant or terrarium
For a new apartment, a terrarium or a small house plant is a wonderful gift. It will continue to grow long after the wedding, and can act as a metaphor for a couple’s relationship that keeps on maturing. And its eco-friendly too!
