3 Special Gifts to give at the Wedding

Wedding season is here again and celebrating the marriage of a couple that you care about is a special occasion that you want to mark with a great gift.

Choose quality gifts for the start of their new life together that they can keep for years. These can be gifts from their registry, or you can surprise them with a gift they would never expect. Here are three special gifts you can give at the wedding:

Unique gifts for the home

Personalised gifts show that you have taken time and effort to choose something the couple will love.

Canvas print of their wedding song

If you know the song playing as the bride and groom walk down the aisle or that will be playing for their first dance, a canvas print with the song lyrics plus their names and the wedding date makes a unique gift.

Eternity rose

Flowers are always a welcome and beautiful gift, but they only last a week. One of the more unusual wedding gift ideas is to gift a natural rose picked and preserved at the peak of perfection and gilded in gold, which they can display in a vase at home and which could become a family heirloom.

Engraved gifts

Consider a custom wood sign for their home engraved with their names and wedding date they can display in their hallway as a daily reminder of the love they have for each other. You can also personalise a chopping board or a set of wine glasses with their new last name and initial.

Travel gifts

The couple will have spent a lot of time, energy and money to prepare for their wedding. Offset post-wedding blues with gifts that help them look forward to their next holiday together later in the year.

Wireless noise-cancelling headphones

Wireless noise-cancelling headphones will allow the newly-weds to listen to music and podcasts without interruption from fellow passengers on long flights or when dealing with the challenges of travel delays.

Luggage set or backpack

The couple may already have a new luggage set for their honeymoon, but if they are into hiking, consider a lightweight, water-resistant backpack that is comfortable to carry. Choose a  design with smart extras like a laptop sleeve and built-in pockets for smart leads and other essentials.

Traveller subscription

Inspire travellers with a book subscription each quarter that contains selected books from travel writers, free trade organic tea, special gifts and a limited-edition art print. A portion of the proceeds from every box is donated to help women and children around the world.

Experience gifts

Experience gifts offer the couple the chance to build new memories.

Two-night hotel stay

As the couple settles into married life, a special gift would a be a gift card to include a two-night stay for them at an unusual hotel like an underground cave for a unique experience or at their favourite brand hotel at home or abroad.

Spa date

Gift a spa treatment for relaxation and rejuvenation. You can gift a local spa package they can both enjoy. Include a couples’ massage, reflexology session, manicure and eyebrow waxing. Add in a bottle of fizz and time in the sauna or steam room, so they end their experience feeling both reenergized and reconnected.


Gift them lessons with a professional to learn a new skill. This could be learning how to surf or to improve their yoga. This could be to learn a foreign language or how to cook a specific type of cuisine, study art history or learn to play guitar.
