4 Truly Unusual Wedding Gifts

valentines-day

Have a special wedding coming up and need to buy your gift? Then opt for something other than honeymoon vouchers or a new kettle! Chances are the bride and groom will be receiving more that enough of these things. They’ll probably want something a bit different and appreciate something a little more unusual. Read on for a handful of gift ideas to make the happy couple say ‘Wow!’

Something old, new, borrowed or blue

If you want to buy something just for the bride, considering this age-old wedding rhyme can give you some great inspiration. For example, you could give her a ‘something borrowed’ for the big day. It could be necklace of yours that she’s always adored, for example. The ‘something blue’ could be a set of sapphire earrings to wear with her dress. The only catch here is that you’ll have to give the gift before the wedding day. However, it might actually be fun for the bride to have her gifts spaced out a little.

A box of hen party goodies!

Another idea for the bride! Kit her and her friends out with a box of hen party accessories! The box could contain a bottle of champagne, some tiaras and a fun game, perhaps. Or some slightly naughtier things! Like the idea above, you’ll have to give this in the run-up to the wedding. For that reason, it could be a good idea to give this as an engagement gift. Explain that this is their main present from you, and then give something smaller on the big day.

A photo book

Photo books are one of the most personalised gifts you can give a couple. It could be a photograph book of their relationship up until now, or of just the last year. You could even pick a specific part of their relationship. The first year, or the wedding planning months, for example. You’ll find a lot of great photos on their social media accounts. You can also ask friends and family if they have any good ones you can have a copy of. If you’re concerned about the cost of printing, some companies offer you a certain number of prints free if you’re a first-time customer. At Snapfish you get your first 40 prints free, and just have to pay for postage. Chances are you’ll have everything else you need, like pens, paper, glue and scissors, already dotted about the house.

Papercut wedding vows

Papercut designs are so beautiful and delicate; they make an ideal wedding gift. There is a growing variety of the types of designs you can pick from. Crafty calf is one such place that offers laser-cut paper designs that come framed and presented appropriately. If you’re happy to give your gift a few weeks later, have the design made from their wedding vows. Or, on the big day, listen out to a special speech that truly made the bride and groom smile. You’ll be giving them the gift of great memories too!
