Fun Wedding Gifts
Give the special couple the gift of a good time and big smiles with these wedding present ideas.
Offer the lovebirds a memorable experience while on their honeymoon. A couple’s massage, gourmet dinner, or snorkeling expedition are all thoughtful ways to make their trip unforgettable. In fact, many couples set up a honeymoon registry to help pay for hotels, airfare, or other travel experiences, so be sure to ask if they have a registry before you purchase anything!
Mr. and Mrs. Gifts
Let the bride and groom share their new status with the world! From practical to silly and sweet, there are plenty of His and Her present options to choose from. Whether it’s wine glasses, towels, aprons, coffee mugs, or socks, you can’t go wrong with Mr. and Mrs. gifts.
Keep the celebration going strong and let the newlyweds expand their palates with monthly wine deliveries. Many wine club memberships let recipients fill out preference questionnaires to ensure they receive bottles that match their taste, and several subscriptions offer recommended food pairings and recipes along with in-depth tasting notes. It’s a fun way for the lovebirds to discover new vineyards and varieties without leaving their home!
Personalized Wedding Gifts
Let’s take a look at some wedding gifts that can be customized for the newlyweds.
Wedding Video Gift
Want to give a one-of-a-kind gift that will warm the recipients’ hearts? Have family, friends, and colleagues each record a video message with their congrats and best wishes using Memento’s video gift maker. A group video is the perfect way to include guests who aren’t able to attend the wedding and gives others time to think about what they want to say instead of hastily writing a message in a guest book the day of.
Once all the video clips are collected, personalize the video with music, the couple’s wedding colors, and an intro message. When the final group video is done, send it to the bride and groom before their special day or play it on a big screen at their wedding as a surprise. No matter how you choose to share it, the recipients will be thrilled to hear so many messages of love and support from those closest to them.
Watercolor Wedding Art
Turn a photo of the pronouncement kiss, first dance, and other important moments from the wedding into a beautiful work of art. There are several websites and apps out there that will use a cherished picture to create a gorgeous, digital watercolor rendition that can be framed and hung with pride in the bride and groom’s home. Simply upload your favorite pic of the couple and customize the piece with their names along with the wedding date and location for a truly thoughtful gift that helps memorialize their big day.
Send your well wishes in a beautiful, online Wedding Greeting Card. Write a personalized message inside the card, add a heartfelt video message, and include a gift card to make it extra special. You can even customize the colors, font, and postage stamp of your card and add a photo to select designs.
Digital greeting cards also make great last-minute wedding gifts because they’re delivered instantly to the recipient!
