Flowers make a wonderful gift in any situation. Flowers, plants, succulents, the choice is yours. Any of these options would make a wonderful gift for the wedding couple.

Various fabrics, such as towels, pillowcases, and bedsheets, are a more traditional option for wedding gifts. You could make these more personal by getting their names or initials monogrammed, lots of companies offer personalisation services. Your couple will love the thought that has gone into this gift.

Dinners/Weekend Trips

Treat the newly married couple to some quality time time by giving them dinner vouchers to their favourite restaurant or a weekend away. This would be even more special if the couple have children and you offer to baby sit for them to enjoy the time to themselves. You could also look at theatre tickets, gigs and spa breaks as options.

Kitchen Appliances

If you want to go down the traditional route then why not look at kitchen appliances as a gift. These may seem like the obvious choice but newly wed couples are often building a home together, so try and get a feel for that they need to make their home complete. A coffee maker, cocktail kit, smoothy maker, pancake maker, a new speaker system? So many options for things they could use every day.

Watches and Jewellery

Matching watches could be a rally cool option for a wedding gift. It shows you have really thought about them and tried to find something that suits both their tastes. These could also be engraved to make them more personal. If not then, what about matching jewellery?

Customised videos

This is a really personalised option and something the couple can keep forever. Collect messages from all their friends and family and then compile the messages into one video for them to keep. You can use on-line editing equipment and download the video onto a USB for them to keep and cherish forever

Wedding Calendars

Collect photos of the couple from different milestones of their relationship and then turn this into a beautiful calendar. Each month they turn the page of the calendar and see a new photo of themselves, re-living some lovey memories. They can keep this up in their home for the first year and keep it as a memento for their first year of marriage together.
