Memorable wedding gifts are the most thoughtful and original gifts received by a bride and groom. These are the gifts that are remembered for a long time. Here are some ideas for choosing a truly memorable wedding gift for a special couple.

Personalized Gifts

Personalized gifts give the bride and groom a unique reminder of their wedding day. Jewelry engraved with both of their names and the date of their wedding is a long-lasting gift that can be worn for many years.

If your budget doesn't stretch to buying jewelry, a personalized photograph frame to display one of their wedding photographs is a unique and thoughtful gift.

Monogrammed Gifts

Towels, bathrobes, pillowcases, mugs and other items monogrammed with the initials of the bride and groom are stylish as well as practical. They will be gratefully received and well used.

Long-lasting Gifts

Give a gift that will be appreciated for many years to come. Original artwork, a handmade quilt, or a bottle of fine wine that can be opened on their tenth anniversary are just a few examples of long-lasting gifts.

Gift Baskets

You can create a unique and memorable wedding gift by making a gift basket filled with items that the bride and groom will use in their early married life. For example, you could create a romantic night in kit with some scented candles, a movie suggestion, a bottle of wine and a box of chocolates.

A picnic hamper containing a picnic rug, non-perishable food, picnic plates, and wine glasses would also allow the couple to spend some quality time together after their honeymoon.

Memberships and Gift Cards 

Membership of a museum, art gallery, zoo or other place the couple will enjoy visiting together is a thoughtful yet rarely-given wedding gift.

If the couple shares certain hobbies, a gift card would be truly appreciated. For example, if the bride and groom are both keen cyclists, why not give them a gift card that they can use at their favorite bike store?

Before choosing a memorable gift for a bride and groom, write down their hobbies, interests and preferences and be creative. Think of a truly unique gift that will delight them both and be appreciated for many years to come.
