Don’t be afraid to give something that’s not traditional


Are your close friends getting married and you’re not sure what to buy them? Beyond the more traditional wedding gifts, here are 8 ideas that they’ll absolutely love!

1. Ring holders

The couple will need something to put their new wedding rings in, so a ring holder is a great idea. You could even go the extra mile by personalising the box for them!

2. A photo album

In an age of all-things digital, a photo album may seem like a dated gift, but it’s actually a great way to encourage your friends to print their wedding photos or other memorable snaps taken throughout their years together, which they’ll lovingly place in a luxurious photo album you bought for them.

3. A collection of marriage-centric Christmas ornaments

We get it, you probably don’t want to hear the word Christmas again just yet, but if your couple friends are getting hitched close to the festive season, a personalised set of Christmas ornaments for their home is the sweetest token, which will also remind them of you each time they set up their home for the holidays.

Everyone loves a warm cuppa in the morning or at night, so a set of monogrammed or personalised mugs is the perfect idea for those couples who love a warm drink. Be sure to opt for a top quality, special set of mugs that are unique in their own way, to make them stand out among the many cheap mugs available for purchase.

6. An Airbnb gift card

They’re bound to be doing some (or lots) of couple’s travelling, so an Airbnb gift card is a great way to help them save on their travel expenses, while giving them an excuse to go explore the world. Be it a trip to an exotic destination or a cabin in the woods, they’ll love the idea.

8. A coffee subscription

Once the honeymoon is over, they’ll be back to their normal, busy lives. If your friends are coffee lovers and appreciate a good brew, a coffee subscription will help ease them back into their hectic routines, and remind them of you each time they make themselves a mug.
