Ever wondered what to get for the wedding couple as a friend or family, that is not just topping up more money in the ang paos? Often, newlyweds have just moved into their new house and would need housewarming essentials to decorate their home and make it more cozy. Kill two birds with one stone and gift them something that is both a housewarming gift and a wedding present!
To make your gift thoughtful and unique for the couple, here are some gift ideas that you can adopt:
1. Creative and thoughtful photo album
A wedding photo album is the perfect personalised wedding gift idea. Professional photos are great, but it’s always nice to see custom shots by your friends and family that capture moments that are special to you and your partner.
If you are the type to DIY the sketchbook cover with intricate designs and dried flowers, you can get a blank cover to do from scratch. This is affordable and not over-the-top, something that your wedding couple would greatly appreciate.
If you and your friends are not the type to DIY the cover and would like a personalised handmade cover, you can try out this sketchbook and spend the time customising the inside pages instead.
Photo albums are great gifts, and wedding couples would very much appreciate them. However, they can be time consuming so if you would want to gift this, start preparing earlier!
2. Custom-made photo frames
Go beyond the standard photo frame with these modern and minimalistic pressed glass versions! You can choose between 3 sizes and finishes (brass, nickel or copper). Then, customise them with your favourite pictures of the bride and groom, or with their friends and family to personalize the gift.
Or if you want a more unique touch to displaying personalised photos, try hanging frames instead! They make the walls look less empty and at the same time, are not over-the-top and still beautify the couple’s place.
3. Personalised Wine Bottle and Glass Caddy with customised wine glasses
Go for a unique wedding present with this one-of-a-kind maple wine caddy! This distinctive invention looks aesthetically pleasing and also ensures that the couple’s wine-drinking necessities are always grouped together for instant consumption. Pair them with customised wine glasses for the bride and groom for a more thoughtful finishing touch.
4. Personalised for their kitchen use
A custom cutting board is absolutely stunning as a wedding gift for the newlyweds’ kitchen. Moreover, there are many sites out there that can customise the cutting board with engravings. Add the bride and groom’s names for a more personalised and thoughtful feel. Pair this customised cutting board alongside a vinyl kitchen floor mat that comes in different colours to make their new kitchen more cozy and aesthetically pleasing!
5. Unique stone coasters
Customised with the bride and groom’s name, these stone coasters are unique and are absolutely stunning!
With these ideas, the concept is to customise and personalise what you’re getting for the wedding couple. Make sure to keep the bride and groom in your mind when buying these gifts. Add a more personalised touch by pairing two items together as part of a set, it’s the thought that counts after all!
