To help stop you breaking the bank, we’ve put together our favorite wedding gift ideas that are both unique, affordable and sure delight the happy couple, helping them celebrate.

Personalized Wall Art

Wall art comes in all shapes, sizes, and designs. Choose a unique piece to commemorate the couple’s special day with a personalized image. Companies like Grafomap let you choose a specific location such as the wedding venue or place the couple met, to create a designer map.

Create a Food Hamper

A food hamper is an excellent way to give the couple several gifts in one. You can include a bottle of their favorite alcohol with glasses, savory snacks like cheese and crackers or sweet treats like macaroons and chocolate. Put the food in a wicker picnic basket with a tag for something they can keep.

Alternately, you could give them a special care package to stock up the kitchen for the couple after their honeymoon. You can get a feast to perk them up when they return home and back to reality.

Personalized Silver Photo Frame

The perfect gift for a couple to treasure is an engraved sterling silver photo frame with the couples name and wedding date. You could frame the wedding invitation or let them choose their favorite snap from their special day. This classic gift is an affordable way to create a family heirloom for the new couple, lasting for many years with some care. If a photo frame isn’t their thing, there are also silver holders for a wedding certificate. This will help keep the document safe and is something to treasure.

An Instant Camera for the Honeymoon

An instant camera is a perfect gift for capturing a special moment such as honeymoon memories. You have one chance to capture a split second then you’re given an instant memento. An instant camera is great for a gift for the couple to take on their honeymoon and use for years after. Remember to include some film to get them started with their snaps. You could also provide a photo album to store the images they capture during their trip.

A Monthly Subscription

In the modern day, you can sign up for a monthly subscription for just about anything. For the perfect gift, sign the couple up to receive a year of monthly deliveries through the post. It’ll make a nice change to bills and junk mail that people usually receive. If there’s something they have a shared love for like wine or chocolate, look for this kind of option. If you want something more generic or unusual, just have a look around for options like monthly house plants or a monthly mystery.

A Tent

If you know a couple who enjoys nothing more than packing up their car on a weekend and heading into the great outdoors, a tent could be an ideal wedding present. A tent gives the couple their accommodation for countless nights away that are free or generally pretty cheap. Remember, camping isn’t for everyone, so choose your recipient wisely. If your couple already owns a decent tent, there’s plenty of other camping equipment you could opt for.

Personalized Honeymoon Luggage Tags

For those couples who prefer a break in another country, personalized luggage tags make a unique gift. They can be used by the newlyweds on their honeymoon as well as on future trips. You can include their shared name and wedding date on the tags. If you’re wanting to spend a little more, you could get them matching luggage or a full suitcase set.

Scrapbook Your Time Together

In the era of smartphones and social media, there’s an abundance of photographs whenever you take a trip, go out for the day or even stay in. For a completely personal gift for the happy couple, use your photos to make a scrapbook of your shared experiences. Add in photos, ticket stubs, and handwritten notes to highlight the key events in your lives.


Get Creative

If you’re the creative type, get crafty are make a completely unique wedding gift. Paintings, sculptures, poems or picture books are cool and quirky ideas that the couple will be sure to adore. Spend your time to make something truly original that’s just for them.

Couple’s Day Out

For the couple who has everything, a shared experience is the gift of memories rather than material items. You could book a fancy meal out, dance lessons, a cooking class etc. Choose something you know the couple will enjoy or push their boundaries a little with something more adventurous.

If you want to splurge a little, you could get them an annual membership to something the can do together. A National Trust or English Heritage pass will give them a year of adventures, trailing round historic sites and their grounds.

Final Thoughts

When it comes to the perfect gift for a wedding, put some thought in and choose something you know the couple will appreciate. If there’s a wedding registry, make sure to go off this rather than choosing something different unless you know the newly married couple is happy with a surprise.
